Back in August, we reported that an all new Star Wars experience was coming to the Disney Parks: a virtual reality experience that puts you right in the action of the Star Wars universe!
After over two months of waiting, we’ve finally gotten some more solid information on this brand new virtual reality experience, Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire!
Here’s a description of what you’ll get to experience, straight from VOID’S website:
“Under the orders of the budding rebellion, your team will travel to the molten planet of Mustafar. Your mission is to recover Imperial intelligence vital to the rebellion’s survival. Alongside the pragmatic droid K-2S0, your team must navigate through an enemy facility walking into danger at every turn. Disguised as stormtroopers, grab your blaster, solve puzzles, and fight giant lava monsters in an effort to fulfill your team’s orders.”
Check out this preview of the game:
This is a one of a kind experience offered only at Disney Springs in Walt Disney World and Downtown Disney at the Disneyland Resort. It’s a chance for fans of Star Wars to wander freely through the universe, interacting with fellow players as well as iconic characters!
Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire looks like it will have an opening date to coincide with the release of The Last Jedi. Booking is now available for pre-order, starting on Saturday, December 16th. Each ticket costs $29.95 for a 30 minute game but the trick is to book early in advance! Opening day, there is only one spot left and that won’t last too long…
