Have you even dreamed of being in a Star Wars movie - for real? Soon, we will be able to walk the pathways of Batuu when Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge opens in Disney's Hollywood Studios. But there's another experience that allows you to be part of the action RIGHT NOW!
Located in Disney Springs, The Void offers guests a truly unique experience. Through the use of the latest in virtual reality technology, you can become a part of an adventure in the Star Wars universe called "Secrets of the Empire."
We recently visited The Void and experienced it for ourselves. The cost is about $29.95 per person and guests must be at least 10 years old and 48 inches tall. Once you enter, you are outfitted with your gear: a headset and vest.
I won't give away the adventure at all. I will say it's pretty realistic. You definitely feel that you are in the Star Wars universe. All of your senses are telling you that you are seeing, feeling, hearing and touching this virtual space.
The whole experience lasts about 30 minutes and it's an intense half hour for sure! I highly recommend it!
