In case you hadn’t noticed, Jennifer Fickley-Baker — editorial content manager at Disney Parks Blog — has a pretty unique job.
This time, that seemingly milquetoast title had the ubiquitous DPB vlogger donning VR gear and joining Ralph and Vanellope on a trip into the Internet.
And what a trip it was!
Ralph Breaks VR, a one-of-a-kind, hyper-reality experience by ILMxLAB and The VOID based on the new Walt Disney Animation Studios film “Ralph Breaks the Internet,” opened this week to the delight of guests at both Disney Springs and the Downtown Disney District.
In teams of four, guests will join Wreck-It Ralph and Vanellope von Schweetz and break into the internet disguised as characters from the film called “Netizens.” There, guests adventure their way through Dunderdome and Pancake Milkshake Diner – and encounter a new antagonist named B.E.V. (which stands for “Built to Eradicate Viruses”).
Now, having seen Ralph Breaks the Internet,twice, I came away wondering how (or where) Disney might use some of the sequences in the film in a possible “dark ride” or attraction — yeah, I’m looking at you Rock N Roller Coaster — and then implement them in one of the domestic parks.
But there’s actually no need to wait to join our heroes on an adventure.
“Ralph Breaks VR” has that covered.
But I’m looking for a little help: I’ve not yet experienced The VOID in person for “Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire” and I’m looking for some insight into its play experience.
So, have you experienced The VOID? What did you think?
