Comic-Con attendees who always wanted to know how it feels to pilot a Jaeger from the Guillermo del Toro film Pacific Rim will finally get their chance. Legendary Entertainment is hosting the Pacific Rim Jaeger Pilot Oculus Rift Experience at its booth, #3920. Here’s a description of what sounds to be one of the most popular events on the exhibit floor:
We have worked closely with the leading pioneers of virtual reality, Oculus VR, to deliver a new benchmark in Oculus Rift experiences.
Fans will experience what it feels like to pilot a 250-story robot as they step into a fully-realized Jaeger Combat Simulator. Strapping on the Oculus Rift headset, fans will ‘Drift with the Rift’ and experience the beloved universe of Pacific Rim in a whole new way.
Tickets will be distributed at the Legendary booth, #3920, daily at 9am, on a first-come first-served basis. Check out this video to get a preview of the booth attraction:
And if that doesn’t get you pumped, you have no pulse.
Other Legendary booth events include the Crimson Peak Gothic Gallery, where fans can get a “glimpse behind the curtain of Crimson Peak, through an intimate set piece of the gothic haunted house” created by Guillermo del Toro for the upcoming film.
