resorts world genting


This piece of news is going to probably thrill all you fans of Star Wars!

Created by ILMxLAB and The VOID, friends can step inside the Star Wars universe together in a fully immersive experience unlike any other.

From a galaxy far, far away comes the first multi-sensory immersive experience of its kind in Asia that blurs the line between the physical and virtual world that you can explore with friends and companions.

It will be The VOID’s first venture outside of America and the UK, making this experience at Resorts World Genting the first in Asia. This location-based VR experience will be brought to new heights, quite literally at 6000 feet above sea level.  It will be one of the key attractions at the resort which received almost 25 million visitors last year. This will exist alongside dining and retail outlets as well as entertainment attractions that will include the upcoming indoor and outdoor theme parks.

Check out the trailer of this Hyper-Reality Star Wars™ VR Experience before you continue reading!

Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire will take guests through a breathtaking journey into the Star Wars universe allowing them to walk freely and untethered on an interactive stage. Reality and imagination mix to deliver fully immersive experiences that evoke all the senses, where guests will feel the impact of blaster bolts, smell the smoke from the surrounding environment, push buttons to solve an interactive puzzle to escape enemies, all while coordinating directly with their unit in real time through the blended virtual and physical world.

Under the orders of the rebellion, teams of four travel to the molten planet of Mustafar and sneak onto an Imperial Base. During the mission, you’ll encounter familiar Star Wars characters as you navigate dangers at every turn.

Craig Watson, Chairman of The VOID said: “The VOID’s hyper-reality experiences are taking people to worlds that, until now, only existed in their imaginations. The VOID is leading location-based entertainment to the next level. By making the impossible real and allowing guests to step into completely new and alternate realities.  In Star WarsSecrets of the Empire you can hear, feel, touch and even smell bringing them closer to the story, characters and places.”

By the time you are reading this Blog entry, I am on a coach to Awana Genting and I will be back on Saturday evening.
I was so elated when I received the news from Nuffnang that I have been selected to go on a sponsored 2 Days 1 Night trip to Awana Genting Highlands Golf & Country Resort [Awana Genting for short]. And well, this is perhaps one of the greatest opportunities that I ever had to rub shoulders with the Elites in the blogosphere.

I believe everyone has heard of Resorts World Genting [RWG for short] and I guess almost everyone I know would have been to RWG at least once or more than that. But if I were to ask how many of you have been to Awana Genting, my guess is only a handful will kee chiu.

Now, what would I exactly be doing at Awana Genting during the 2D1N trip?

From the Email that I received from Nuffnang, I reckoned that there will be tons of outdoor activities that I will be participating in and some of the activities include an ECO Sport Treasure Hunt, a Campfire, and also a BBQ dinner! What’s more, some of us will be sleeping in Awana Genting Long House while some of us will be sleeping in tents!

Sounds really fun and exciting right? This upcoming trip will definitely remind me of my good ol’ camping days in the National Cadet Corps.

Anyhows, being the curious person that I am, I went to “Google” and see if I could find any information about the trip and I chanced upon a few blogs by Malaysian Bloggers whom participated in the trip that was previously organised. While I’m not entirely sure if my itinerary is the same as theirs; I could tell that they really had a lot of fun during the trip.

Since it’s a 2D1N trip, I intend to travel light and here’s what I packed:

1X Insect Repellent
1X Compact Camera and Spare Batteries
1X Torch Light
1X Portable Charger
2X Set of Clothings
1X Mobile Phone
1X Set of Toiletries
1X Towel

I’m not very sure if there will be a stopover at Yong Peng but if there is, I will probably pop by and purchase a Data SIM Card for me to surf the Internet and keep in touch with everyone via Whatsapp, Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook. So meanwhile, stay tuned and happy weekends everyone!

God bless!
