Halloween. It’s for kids right? Trick-or-treating, dressing up, playing pranks…
Sure, there might be the odd house party or club night catered towards this kooky, spooky time of year, but what if we said there was a new reality-bending way to experience that genuine thrill you first had as a kid? Immersed in some of the biggest Halloween blockbusters and horror-themed shows of all time…so much so that you’ll feel like you’re part of their universe? Doesn’t sound so childish now, does it?
Well, we know such a thing exists, because we’ve experienced it with Meta Quest 3. And, honestly, we’re still sleeping with the light on.
To prove it, Meta Quest 3 are taking over the streets in Shoreditch with their ‘Thrillboards’. Two inconspicuous billboards seemingly showcasing well-loved Halloween titles that have been flip-turned upside down and, on closer inspection, invite passersby to enter the worlds of Ghostbusters: Rise of the Ghost Lord and The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners to experience and demo them on Meta Quest 3; a mixed reality headset that literally expands your world.
Step inside one of the Thrillboards and have your senses awakened by visual illusions, eerie sounds and unusual smells from otherworldly settings. Will you be greeted by a padded marshmallow room or an unsettling forest in New Orleans?
We won’t give it all away…
A friendly face approaches you with a Meta Quest 3 and prepares you for a demo. The space is yours to experience Meta’s groundbreaking mixed-reality technology.
Within seconds, you’re the main character in worlds you never knew could feel so real, slaying mini-pufts in your real-life surroundings or battling hordes of the living dead in an infested New Orleans location.
You’re no longer sitting on the sofa with your snacks watching the movie unfold. You are the movie. And whatever you do determines the outcome. At this moment in time, the real world is just a figment of your imagination. No, this is the real world.
Meta Quest 3 ‘Thrillboards’ can be found at Protein Studios, London EC2A 3EY from Friday, 27th October and will be around until Sunday, 29th October. Book a slot here to experience it for yourself. Meta Quest 3 is available now, find out more here.
