Yes! You read that right! Right in time for RALPH BREAKS THE INTERNET, a brand new experience, Ralph Breaks VR, is coming to The VOID on November 21! Have you ever wanted to go into the internet? Now you can with Ralph and Vanellope, and you can get your tickets NOW!
Guests will break into the internet in teams of 4 with Wreck-It Ralph and Vanellope von Schweetz disguised as characters from the film called “Netizens” to play the newest, coolest video game ever!
Ralph Breaks VR
Guess what?! I got to be part of the 1st group to experience Ralph Breaks VR from The VOID! Talk about an experience! This was my first VR experience, and it was so cool! I was totally immersed in this brand new world. Not only do you get to see everything in 360 degrees, you can smell, touch and feel things too.
My trip inside The VOID with Ralph Breaks VR
Getting ready to head to The VOID was super exciting. Like I said, I’ve never done VR, so I couldn’t wait to see what awaited us! Look at these excited faces!
Once we arrived, we were greeted with all sorts of amazingness that I’ll share with you in the coming weeks. One of those things include interviewing RALPH BREAKS THE INTERNET co-writer Pamela Ribon who also happens to be the voice of Snow White!
But, what we were there for was behind the door marked The VOID! When you go in, Ralph and Vanellope will tell you what to expect, and then you suit up with your helmet and backpack. These things are a little heavy which is why there is an age/size requirement to participate in Ralph Breaks VR.
Then you go in…..
Ralph Breaks VR introduces two brand new locations, Dunderdome and Pancake Milkshake Diner, and a new antagonist, B.E.V. voiced by writer Pamela Ribon, which stands for “Built to Eradicate Viruses.”

Doesn’t that look fun? It is! You and your family and friends will love this! If you live near or will be traveling to a location near The VOID, you need to experience Ralph Breaks VR.
What some of the pros and creators think about Ralph Breaks VR
I know that I loved it, and I am sure the creators are very proud of their accomplishments. We got to meet several of them, and they were so excited to hear what we thought. Well, I think, “Well done, everyone!”
Pamela Ribon, Co-Writer for Ralph Breaks the Internet and Writer for Ralph Breaks VR
“It’s incredible to work on an experience like Ralph Breaks VR that lets you live inside a film you’ve spent years creating. ILMxLAB and The VOID have built a world where Ralph and Vanellope really come alive around you.”

Ralph Breaks VR is an experience that brings a smile to your face and the desire to have another go around with friends and family.”
