THE SCI-FI PODCAST EP 27: Experiencing Ghostbusters Dimension at The Void

tsfp-ghostbuster-dimensionWelcome to The SciFi Podcast, a wretched hive of scum and villainy a bi-weekly podcast focused on in-depth discussion of all things Science Fiction. The SciFi Podcast features four hosts—Mattroid, Solo, Brain, and Station!—and frequent guests. Each episode we look at a science fiction theme or franchise and take the discussion where no show has gone before.

In this special episode, Station! and Mattroid are joined by SpaceWolf to recount a live hyper-reality experience at the Utah-based headquarters of The Void, where Mattroid, Solo and SpaceWolf were joined by friends of the show (and previous guest) Jonasty and (Movie Stream Cast’s) Rach Hell for a round of Ghostbusters Dimension, which is now open to the general public at Madame Tussaud‘s in New York City.

And for even more on our experience at The Void, read Mattroid’s “Gary the Unicorn” column for The Daily Herald newspaper, Gary the Unicorn: Entering The Void.
Check out this new trailer that gives you a small sense of the Ghostbusters Dimension experience and see some of our photos before entering The Void, below.

  1. Oh man, sounds like you all were having so much fun. I need to try out some VR. Juan keeps talking about it, too.

    I may have missed this on the episode, but is The Void open to the public?

    • I’ve only tried the HTC Vive and it was pretty amazing. I was completely immersed and yes, it has its limitations and it’s still a very cumbersome and expensive setup, but for what it tries to accomplish, I think it does so rather successfully.

      Now, after listening to this episode, I’m very curious to try what sounds like a much more intense experience. You guys sounded like you were having the time of your lives and I was super jealous, not gonna lie. I wish The Void great success, so they expand to closer territories.

      And Station! and Mattroid, congratulations on the chibi kaiju. I’m sure you’ll raise him/her/it well. And by well I mean you’ll make him one of ours.

  2. Have you guys had any experience with at-home VR? I know you briefly mentioned the words “at-home VR” early on, but was just wondering how The Void compares.

    • i see people trying it out all the time so i finally did myself and it was pretty cool. i dont think its what the void probably is but it was still surprising and fun.
