AREA15 recently announced The Lab, a brand-new interactive space and gaming hub featuring tech-driven games and experiences, including its first-ever proprietary IP innovations. Leaving traditional theme parks in the dust, AREA15 offers visitors of all ages the chance to design their own adventures, blending state-of-the-art technology with creative storytelling. The Lab’s virtual reality and augmented reality attractions offer a variety of experiences.


The main attraction of The Lab’s new experiences is the proprietary gaming adventure, Origin Quest, a narrative-driven scavenger hunt inviting guests to explore the origin story of AREA15. Part of the Multiverse Maintenance crew, players team up with duo Newt and Ritchie to uncover secrets and solve puzzles. Using your smartphone, navigate through six stations spread throughout the district, each hiding a piece of the puzzle about Particle A15, the force that makes the place so special.


Other new attractions include:

  • AR Dodgeball: Engage in a dynamic virtual dodgeball game, where augmented reality glasses bring digital obstacles and power-ups in an athletic showdown.
  • Bot Breach: Defend AREA15 in a virtual reality world from a robot. Use blasters to halt its advance and transform its rage into a dance-off.
  • Laser Maze: Test your agility and strategic abilities while maneuvering through a laser maze where each movement could be the difference between escape and setting off the alarm.
