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.

As if COVID hadn’t impacted fitness professionals enough, throw this in the mix and it’s a double, even triple whammy.
