A new 4D virtual experience in Birmingham promises to dazzle guests with its innovative scent technology.
‘In a Box 3’, opening in Digbeth’s Floodgate Street, will see VR, theatre and film collide.
One VR experience, written by Hollywood screenwriter Jeremy Drysdale, will see guests problem solve their way out of Chernobyl Power Plant’s Reactor 4.
Players of ‘Chernobyl: Hidden Depths’ must escape the facility before mutated soldiers, or radiation, gets to them first.
They will use all of their senses as they move between zones picking up virtual objects in their fight for survival.
And, incredibly, users will be able to smell the environment with special scent technology – a UK first according to VR bosses.
Each experience lasts around 60 minutes. Visitors can participate in groups of up to four people.
Founder, Kevin Blair, said: “It has been an incredibly challenging time for live entertainment. But we’ve used that time to create a unique and truly ground-breaking immersive experience in Digbeth.
“In A Box 3 offers a brand new, multi-sensory experience that combines mind-blowing technology with a physical sensation overload.
“We’re thrilled to be based in the city’s creative quarter: Digbeth. There’s a really interesting mix of food, beverage, retail, residential and creative businesses here.
“Digbeth is also the hub for a multitude of creative VR and AR businesses.
“The long-term plan is to offer fans of popular culture experiential VR games, that push the boundaries in VR and immersive 4D.“
Originally from Brum, Jenna oversaw a number of high-profile productions in Northumberland Avenue’s The Playhouse.
In a Box 3 will open on Wednesday, October 6 and includes a bar for customers to enjoy.
We will be reviewing the experience before launch.
