For decades, fans have dreamed of one day stepping into the Star Wars galaxy to catch a glimpse of Luke Skywalker’s galactic heroism or watch a Stormtrooper march in line. Now, those dreams are becoming reality – virtual reality.

At Disney Springs, Padawans young and old have the chance to test their bravery with the Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire Virtual Reality Experience. ILMxLAB and The Void have joined forces with Lucas Films to create a completely immersive adventure through the Star Wars universe. This virtual reality experience transports you through remarkable technology to the realm of Star Wars as you go undercover as a Stormtrooper to battle the minds of the Dark Side in the name of the Rebellion.

In groups of four, you will don the state-of-the-art, untethered helmets crafted by the brilliant minds of ILMxLAB and The Void. Once strapped into your gear, grab your weapons and step forward a galaxy far, far away. Watch as lava seems to seep around you, gates threaten to close in front of you and the reality of earth disappears.

Don’t miss this once-in-a-lifetime chance to prove your skills to Princess Leia, Luke Skywalker and the entire Rebellion as you capture Imperial intelligence in the name of the Light Side.

Most importantly, may the force be with you – always.
