Resorts World Genting is changing the landscape of virtual reality in Malaysia and in a big way. Resorts World Genting and The VOID is bringing the first-of-its-kind hyper-reality experience, Star WarsTM: Secrets of the Empire created in collaboration with ILMxLAB, as the first in Asia, opening 6th December 2018 at the Skytropolis Funland.
Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire brings guests directly into the Star Wars universe on the planet Mustafar. Using cutting-edge technology, guests will be able to hear, feel, touch and even smell to bring them closer to the story, characters and places through the blended virtual and physical world.

Under the orders of the budding rebellion, your team will travel to the molten planet of Mustafar. Your mission is to recover Imperial intelligence vital to the rebellion’s survival. Alongside the pragmatic droid K-2S0, your team must navigate through an enemy facility walking into danger at every turn. Disguised as stormtroopers, grab your blaster, solve puzzles, and fight giant lava monsters in an effort to fulfill your team’s orders.
The VOID at Resorts World Genting will be its first location in Asia. It is set to be one of the must-visit attractions at the resort which saw almost 25 million visitors last year.
