Get scared in virtual reality in Vancouver this Halloween


For those who think going to a haunted house isn’t enough, this Halloween there’s a virtual reality horror movie experience available in Vancouver.

Called “Dreamscape,” this 15-minute original live action haunted virtual reality experience by Vancouver’s Moves Media puts you right inside the gory, spooky, surprising action.

To get up to your eyeballs in the Halloween spirit, participants don VR goggles and then head off into a grisly world where a glitch in the system puts your subconscious in the driver’s seat. Swivel around, like when that voice suggests to “look behind you,” (shudder) and get the whole thing in creepy 360.

We’ll spare the spoilers, but there are definitely some moments that will make you scream and jump.

Definitely not for the faint of heart, you can plan your “Dreamscape” adventure by booking a spot to check it out for its pre-Halloween run in Gastown at the Shebeen Whiskey House.

Dreamscape runs October 10 through 23 (closed Sundays and Mondays) and daily October 24 through 31 from 6 to 8 pm. Tickets are $20 and advanced reservation is suggested.
