The exhilarating ‘Army of the Dead’ VR experience has finally opened at L.A.’s Westfield Century City Rooftop.
A 5th-floor parking garage in Santa Monica has been turned into a cinematic playground with this Army of the Dead – Viva Las Vengeance: A VR Experience. Step into a cutting-edge, adrenaline-fueled world where Westfield Century City Rooftop becomes a dystopian quarantine zone, riddled with flesh-eating zombies. Your mission: Battle the undead, save the living.
Zack Snyder’s zombie-heist hit ‘Army of The Dead’ was one of the most anticipated releases of the year and Netflix has partnered with Pure Imagination Studios to bring it all to “life” in an explosive way. Whether you’re a fan or not, it’s 30 minutes of action that will not disappoint.
While we recommend watching the movie beforehand, this exclusive prequel will give you an inside look into what happened right before Vegas was sealed off to the world to contain the (un)deadly threats.
This rip-roaring, immersive adventure will be unleashing zombies across 17 cities in the US this summer, and the first base camp has just opened in L.A. A crew, known as “Las Vengeance” is now recruiting Angelenos to join the operation and rescue fellow civilians from the Shambler-infested Sin City.
At the check-in, you’ll select your avatar and physical (simulated) weapon, suit up, grab your hand trackers before a fearless mercenary Maria Cruz (played by Ana de la Reguera) briefs you on the plan of attack. Then, you’ll hop aboard a replica of the iconic taco truck and be taken on a thrilling ride that blurs the line between apocalyptic film and location-based VR.
Once your state-of-the-art virtual reality headsets are on, the van doors will open and your sunny coastal settings will become a dystopian Las Vegas wasteland. Using state-of-the-art motion platforms and advanced audiovisual effects, every growl will sound like it’s right behind you and every gunshot will reverberate through you.
With full-body capture capabilities, you’ll be a completely immersed 360-degree environment that will move all around you as you defend your team against attacks coming from all sides of the truck as it rocks and rolls through Las Vegas.
When (and if) you make it back in one piece, you’ll be rewarded with tacos “to kill for” and refreshments to sip on while you bring your heart rate back to a normal pace. Plus there’ll be plenty of photo ops and merch available to immortalize the mission’s success.
