We have talked many times about how claustrophobic I can be and how I honestly hate helmets or anything that makes me feel like I can’t escape it. When I heard we would be partaking in the Ralph Breaks VR Experience by ILMXLAB in collaboration with the Void I was honestly a bit freaked out. I wasn’t sure I was going to be able to do it.
When our turn came I pushed myself past my fears and made it happen…I am so dang happy that I did! Holy COW! What an experience! I have never experienced something quite like Ralph Breaks VR!
You are honestly immersed 100% in the experience and you forget what is reality versus what you are experiencing. In my mind, I knew that I was in Los Angeles and I was in a room with friends. In reality, I felt like I had turned into a Ralph Breaks the Internet character and my entire life goal was to shoot pancakes and milkshakes at the hungry bunny and kitty. My entire life focus was on saving the internet and getting the dang bunnies and kitties shot out of the air.
When the experience was over I wanted to have the option of pushing a button and going again. I wasn’t ready for the entire thing to end. The entire experience truly transports you into another world.
You can step out of the crazy stress of real life and truly walk straight into an amazing Disney experience! You can forget all your worries and things to do and just enjoy the experience because it is unlike anything you have done before!
The VOID, the global leader in immersive virtual experiences, and ILMxLAB, Lucasfilm’s award-winning immersive entertainment division, brings Walt Disney Animation Studios’ upcoming film Ralph Breaks the Internet to hyper-reality in Ralph Breaks VR, an original multi-sensory, immersive experience launching on November 21st.

In teams of 4, guests will break into the internet with Wreck-It Ralph and Vanellope von Schweetz disguised as characters from the film called “Netizens” to play the newest, coolest video game ever. Ralph Breaks VR introduces two brand new locations, Dunderdome and Pancake Milkshake Diner, and a new antagonist, B.E.V. voiced by writer Pamela Ribon, which stands for “Built to Eradicate Viruses.” For more on this original hyper-reality story, watch the launch trailer here:
