Are you a replicant, or are you a human? Would you pass the Voight/Kampff Test? Alcon Entertainment and Johnnie Walker intend to find out with the Blade Runner 2049 Experience.
Visitors to the offsite experience will pass through a gallery, where Oculus VR will help you feel like you’re in Los Angeles, 2049. The experience doesn’t end when you leave the gallery; a neon-lit post-apocalyptic Los Angeles street scene awaits you when you emerge. See the sights and hear the sounds as the experience tries to determine if you’re human, or “more human than human.” Actors wearing actual costumes from the Blade Runner 2049 set will be around, handing out giveaways and other “surprises.” Additionally, the actual Spinner from the new film will be on display, along with other vehicles featured in the film.
Fans will be transported into the surreal world of Blade Runner 2049 via D-Box chairs in an immersive 24-seat theatre using unparalleled motion technology enhancing the epic REPLICANT PURSUIT Virtual Reality experience powered by Oculus.
The D-Box chairs are specially programmed to sync with the action on the screen, fully immersing the viewer into the Blade Runner 2049 world. This groundbreaking technology gives fans the opportunity to feel the sensation of pitching and rolling through the alleys of dystopian Los Angeles.
The Blade Runner 2049 Experience takes place right across the street from the convention center in the MLK Promenade. You can make a same-day appointment at the activation, or if you’re willing to stand in line, you can do that too.
Wondering how to make appointments? There will be two lines at the event — a stand-by line and then an appointment line. Those who don’t want to wait can bring their ID and schedule a time to return, similar to a fastpass system.
The experience will be open from 10AM-7PM on Thursday, July 20 and Friday, July 21 or from 9AM-7PM on Saturday, July 22 – or from 10AM-6PM on Sunday. Admission is free, and no badge is required.
