Netflix’s high-octane Army of the Dead combines zombie movies with a nail-biting Las Vegas heist, and now you can relive that adrenaline with the Viva Las Vengeance VR experience.
The truly heart-pounding “Army of the Dead” VR experience is taking place at the recently revealed Tyson’s Corner Center. The massive commercial center is hosting a cinematic playground ridden with zombies! Trust us, you don’t want to miss this, especially since it’s just ten miles west of Washington, D.C.
This exclusive prequel experience was created with filmmakers to give you an inside look into what happened right before Vegas was sealed off to the world to contain the (un)deadly threats! In this action-packed touring location-based VR experience, players will team up with a civilian search-and-rescue crew known as “Las Vengeance” to battle the throngs of zombies who have taken over Sin City.
With high-end virtual reality headsets, assault weapons with realistic recoil, and state-of-the-art motion platforms, you’ll be able to see, hear and feel every single shot, attack, and explosion.
Tyson’s Corner Center is only 10 miles west of Washington, D.C. just off the Capital Beltway (I-495) near the intersection of Routes 7 and 123. There’s plenty else to do in this retail and entertainment complex. You’ll find over 300 brands, 40 dining destinations, a Hyatt Regency, Luxury Apartments, and even 16-screen stadium seating and IMAX 3D AMC Theatres! With so much to do, you can make a whole day of this VR experience!
After you check-in and pick your avatar and weapons, you’ll be briefed by the fearless Maria Cruz (played by Ana de la Reguera) on the undead army that has taken over and the objective of your mission: rescuing the few lone survivors from hordes of flesh-hungry Shamblers with five other members of your team.
Then you’ll head to a replica of the taco truck from the movie, now tricked-out to penetrate zombies, and suit up in your VR headset, hand trackers, and physical (simulated) weapon with real kick to let the games begin. You may even get to interact with the snarling zombie tiger Valentine!
