Dubai-based development company Meraas, has announced a new partnership with US virtual reality experience, THE VOID.

Dubai will be the first city outside the United States to open a THE VOID location.

To take part in the company’s unique brand of social, multi-sensory, VR gaming, players wear a customised headset, haptic vest and a backpack computer. These, combined with a sophisticated tracking system, are said to deliver an experience akin to a ‘real-life holodeck’.

The new offering is slated to open at The Beach on Friday.

Participants will embark on a Ghostbusters-themed adventure – Ghostbusters: Dimension.

CEO Cliff Plumer said the cutting-edge innovation evident in Dubai was ‘a natural fit’ for his company’s hyper-reality experience.
