Virtual Reality Coming to Tysons Corner Center This Week

A virtual reality entertainment center plans to open this week at Tysons Corner Center — more than a year after signs for the VR business popped up at the mall.

The Void is set to open on Friday, Oct. 18, and people can experience “Avengers: Damage Control,” which launches the same day, an employee at the business, told Tysons Reporter.

“Coming soon” signs have been at the mall for more than a year.

Tysons Reporter spotted that the VR company failed — and then passed — five inspections at the mall from June to October. A spokesman for the mall wasn’t able to confirm that the failed inspections caused the delay.

It’s unclear if the year-long wait is typical for the company.

In June 2018, The Void announced several new locations — the Santa Monica location opened at the start of this year, while the Minneapolis one opened this summer, followed by the Atlanta location a few weeks ago.

The VR business, which is backed in part by Disney, has locations in eight locations — including the Tysons one — in the U.S. and three in Canada. The company is looking to expand in the U.S. and internationally.

Tickets are $39.95 per person and up to four people can take part in groups, according to the website. People can find The Void located on the first level by Barnes and Noble.
