Dreamscape Immersive, the location-based VR startup backed by some of the biggest companies in Hollywood, today announced it will be opening four US-based locations in addition to its flagship LA venue.
Until now, Dreamscape Immersive has operated pop-up venues for limited time engagements with their multiplayer VR experiences.
The company plans to bring four stand-alone and theater-based locations to Dallas/Ft. Worth, to the New York & New Jersey metro areas, and to Columbus, Ohio.
Dreamscape Immersive’s Westfield Century City Mall location is now a permanent installation. The LA location currently features three multiplayer VR experiences; Alien Zoo, The Blu: Deep Rescue, and Lavan’s Magic Projector: The Lost Pearl—all available at $20 per person for a 25 minute experience.
The company says it will soon offer five in-house developed multiplayer VR adventures.
“At its heart, Dreamscape is about merging the scope and emotional power of cinema with the pure visceral excitement of a great theme-park ride — all within a totally new VR technology that allows our audience to enter into and become part of the story,” said Walter Parkes, co-chairman of Dreamscape Immersive in a press statement.
Dreamscape Interactive’s $30 million Series B financing round, announced in September 2017, was led by AMC, and followed by investors including Steven Spielberg, 21st Century Fox, IMAX, Warner Bros., and Bold Capital Partners.
