Here’s Why The ‘Army Of The Dead’ The Most Thrilling Location-Based VR Experiences Ever

High-quality VR, insane set design, a great narrative, plus great food and drinks make this a 5-star attraction.

Whether you’re a fan of zombies or not, once you step onto this tactical taco truck and take a  thrilling VR ride through a dystopian Las Vegas, you’ll want to come back for more. Netflix has partnered with Pure Imagination Studios to turn Army of the Dead into an epic location-based VR experience that will make you feel as though you’re actually inside Zack Snyder’s zombie-ravaged world.

 

With detailed set designs, high-end gear and motion platforms that are seamlessly integrated with the VR world, it’s easy to see why recruits have called this a 5-star attraction. While the rave reviews are a testament to this incredible undertaking, experiencing it for yourself is the only way to do it justice. The 30-minute experience is filled with twists and turns—and that’s not just the tricked-out taco truck simulating every explosion or bump in the road.

You and 5 teammates will make your way to a military base camp which is located on the 5th-floor garage rooftop of Westfield Century City above Eataly. The props and gritty surroundings set the scene and give you the sense of wandering through the film set.

From there, soldiers in character will guide you to a briefing room to watch a video with important information, delivered by Ana de la Reguera, who plays Cruz in the film. The mission: join an officially sanctioned rescue operation to save stranded civilians from the hordes of “shamblers” in a Las Vegas quarantine zone. 

Once you’re suited up with motion-tracking devices, you’ve selected your avatar and your weapons, you’ll be loaded into the truck. The weapons have plenty of customizable options that allow you to choose between two guns and you’ll get to set your handicap. So if you’re a seasoned gamer, you can opt for less aiming assistance.

The taco truck is appropriately dusty, covered in zombie blood splatters, graffiti, and metal bars, just like the film. When doors shut behind you, the game begins. Realistic looking zombies will pop out of nowhere, which will keep you on edge and get your heart racing. Your aim is to shoot down as many as you can as you traverse the Vegas strip. The truck vibrates and moves perfectly in sync with the audio and visuals, blurring the lines between your physical reality and the virtual one. You’ll also see your teammates moving around as avatars which make the experience even trippier.
