Check Out a Virtual Reality Experience That Will Take You to the Battlegrounds of WWI

Both educational and exhilarating, War Remains by Dan Carlin is an immersive experience that takes viewers into the trenches of World War I using virtual reality, practical effects, and a physical set. Intrigued? Check it out for yourself this Friday, August 16th.

War Remains blends VR with a physical set that guests can reach out and touch, along with practical effects like haptics, floor rumblers, and wind. The experience combines Carlin’s classic narrative style with moments of unfettered combat to bring viewers closer to history than ever before. Physical and virtual elements combine to create a visceral, realistic simulation far more immersive than a film or video game.

Carlin’s two long-running podcasts – Dan Carlin’s Hardcore History and Common Sense with Dan Carlin – are among the most popular in the world. Part storyteller, part analyst, Carlin has mastered the art of looking at subjects from multiple angles and dissecting and thinking about them in original ways. His passion is contagious, his ideas are captivating, and his approach to the past is unlike anything taught in a classroom.

"War Remains" is a realistic simulation of the First World War, one of the most horrific conflicts in human history. As such, viewer discretion and parental guidance are advised. Due to the immersive nature of this experience, only one participant will enter at a time and there is no late admission.

In-virtual reality runtime is 12 minutes. Tickets start at $40 per person. For tickets and more information, please visit https://www.todaytix.com!
