You don’t need to go to a theme park to experience amazing thrill rides. Dreamscape, the new immersive virtual reality experience, will take riders on virtual experiences that will feel like flying and mimic the experience of those big thrill rides. This new VR spot is slated to open at the Westfield Garden State Plaza on November 19.
Dreamscape, a Los Angeles-based company, is bringing its one-of-a-kind virtual reality experience to the East Coast with this Bergen County destination. Launched in conjunction with AMC Theatres, this location will be inside the AMC Garden State 16 Theatre at the Westfield Garden State Plaza. Once inside, you’ll strap into seats and put on the headgear to experience free-roaming and free-flying virtual reality entertainment. This revolutionary, full-body tracking technology powers dynamic inventions that will have you fully immersed in your chosen experience.
“Dreamscape was founded to be a place where people make lifelong memories by exploring fantastical worlds with their friends and family,” said Walter Parkes, co-founder and CEO of Dreamscape. “We believe in pushing creative boundaries, and Dreamscape VR combines premium technology with awe-inspiring, breathtaking content to fully engage our audience in the experience like never before. We can’t wait to open our doors in Paramus so guests can enjoy our one-of-a-kind VR adventures.”
“We serve our community by bringing together unique and exciting experiences, and Dreamscape is a perfect fit as it complements our existing offerings,” said Jay Daly, senior general manager of Westfield Garden State Plaza, which serves about 18 million guests annually. “Dreamscape’s premium VR technology transports our guests to a whole new world from their own backyard, and we are excited for the creative possibilities it holds for our guests during this upcoming holiday season.”
The Paramus location will launch with three of Dreamscape’s most popular experiences, Alien Zoo, Curse of the Lost Pearl: A Magic Projector Adventure, and DreamWorks Dragons: Flight Academy.
In Alien Zoo, guests travel to a larger-than-life, intergalactic haven where they come face-to-face with endangered alien creatures from across the galaxy. Upon arrival, travelers experience the exhilaration of being able to play ball with exotic frog cats, pet majestic creatures, and, by working together, narrowly escape the galaxy’s greatest predator.
During The Curse of the Lost Pearl: A Magic Projector Adventure, audiences step through the screen to become part of a movie. Once inside this heart-pumping adventure, participants are challenged to unlock clues, escape treacherous traps, and work together as they discover the secret of The Lost Pearl.
And finally, DreamWorks Dragons: Flight Academy will have riders climb onto their dragon and hold on tight as they go on a swooping, swerving, free-flying rescue mission to the Hidden World and beyond. It’s up to each teammate and their class of eight other rookie dragon riders to save the day and rescue the village from invaders while trying not to set their virtual world on fire.
