At a Glance

What is it?

An interactive, virtual reality experience that takes you into the world of Star Wars.

Where is it?

At the Grand Canal Shoppes at the Venetian/Palazzo on the Center Strip.

Is it worth the cost?

It’s pretty pricey but high tech so could be worth it to you especially if you’re a Star Wars fan.

What else do I need to know?

This is not a “ride” per se, where you sit in a chair and the VR comes at you, rather it’s an immersive walk-through experience that uses sets, physical effects, and virtual reality.

What’s the bottom line?

The future has arrived.

Full Review

As if Las Vegas wasn’t a step above actual reality already, now they have gone and created a virtual reality experience designed to make those 3-D rides look like child’s play.

Here, you strap on a headset and walk through an immersive, interactive experience that combines technology with actual sets and physical effects. The story is that you are headed to the plant of Mustafar where you have to recover some intelligence that will help the rebellion.

The whole thing takes about 30 minutes from arrival to departure.
