The VOID and Sony Pictures Virtual Reality Announce Jumanji: Reverse the Curse

The Immersive, Multi-Sensory VR Experience Coming to The VOID Locations in North America, Europe and Southeast Asia in November

LINDON, Utah - November 4, 2019 -  The VOID and Sony Pictures Virtual Reality (SPVR) announced today Jumanji: Reverse the Curse, a one-of-a-kind, fully immersive virtual reality experience. The all-new interactive experience is available this holiday season exclusively at select VOID locations starting November 27, 2019.

In advance of the upcoming film Jumanji: The Next Level, arriving in U.S. theaters December 13, the immersive experience Jumanji: Reverse the Curse will give fans the ability to truly enter another game, taking on the form of its heroes, Dr. Bravestone, Ruby Roundhouse, Professor Oberon and “Mouse” Finbar, to save Jumanji from a new dark and mysterious villain. Fans will be enlisted on a daring quest to rescue the Scepter of Se’payu containing the Red Jewel of Jumanji and return it to the temple from which it was stolen. Pulled into the perils of Jumanji, players face challenges just like those that the avatars face in the movie – evading man-eating wildlife, navigating across treacherous landscape, battling evil henchmen – to survive and return to real life.

Jumanji: Reverse the Curse is the second title produced through the collaboration between SPVR and The VOID, which has earned a reputation as one of the most innovative pairings in the industry.  The companies first teamed up to produce award winning Ghostbusters™: Dimension. This was not only the first studio project for The VOID but the world’s first commercial location based VR experience which was also based on a movie when it launched in summer 2016. Together, The VOID and SPVR are continuing to define the future of entertainment by exploring new and innovative ways to seamlessly combine physical and virtual space into an immersive and interactive world of the beloved story, Jumanji. 

“Since first collaborating on Ghostbusters™: Dimension, Sony Pictures Virtual Reality has continued to believe in our unique ability to bring stories to life in a fully immersive, social and dynamic way,” said Curtis Hickman, Co-Founder and Chief Creative Officer of The VOID. “Through close collaboration on this project, we have been able to develop a dimension that is more interactive and immersive than any VOID experience has ever been before. Utilizing new technology and more illusion design, Jumanji: Reverse the Curse is a true adventure that travelers will want to experience over and over again.”

“As the characters in Jumanji are pulled into the game, we naturally had the idea to create a VR experience where fans can do the same.  What’s more fun for moviegoers than to have the chance to live in VR as the characters they love – and, like in the movie, players will have to work together as a team to win the game and save Jumanji,” said Jake Zim, SVP, virtual reality, Sony Pictures Entertainment. “We had a fantastic experience working with The VOID with Ghostbusters: Dimension and are excited to take immersive entertainment to the next level with this new Jumanji story.”

 The title will be available exclusively at select The VOID locations including Cinemark West Plano, Plano, Tx.; Grand Canal Shoppes in The Venetian and The Palazzo Hotel, Las Vegas, Nev.; Third Street Promenade, Santa Monica, Calif.; The Battery Atlanta, Atlanta, Ga.; Mall of America, Minneapolis, Minn.; The Rec Room at Square One, Mississauga, Ont.; The Rec Room Toronto Roundhouse, Toronto, Ont.; The Rec Room West Edmonton Mall, Edmonton, Alta.; and Resorts World Genting, Pahang Darul Markmur, Malaysia.; Tysons Corner, McLean, Va., and Westfield San Francisco Centre, San Francisco, Calif..
