Virtual reality has been a huge hit in the horror scene recently with numerous games and experiences released in the last year. VRstudios is taking it a step further with their VRcade system that’s heading for Halloween Horror Nights. Instead of the usual sit down or tethered standing VR setup, VRcade is a wireless system that allows visitors to walk around while being fully immersed in a story.
Guests will find themselves in the middle of a paranormal investigation where they will interact with real-life characters and a small group of others to solve a “dark mystery.” Halloween Horror Nights will be the first haunt of this scale to deploy virtual reality. Details are a bit sparse, but it does appear that the same high-caliber set designs Halloween Horror Nights is known for will be utilized here as well.
