1) Countdown Escape Room
Countdown is a live interactive game with an original design, painstakingly hand crafted and put together by staff. To play the game you must solve a series of puzzles and clues to open locks. Once opened you get to move on until you finally solve the mystery of the room. Check out our newest Escape Room in the Quantum Realm at ThunderCon 2018!
2) marnics Virtual Reality
Virtual reality (VR) is an interactive computer-generated experience taking place within a simulated environment, that incorporates mainly auditory and visual feedback. This immersive environment can be similar to the real world or it can be fantastical, creating an experience that is not possible in ordinary physical reality. Come check out this amazing technological experience upstairs in the Quantum Realm at ThunderCon 2018!
3) Dance Dance Revolution
Dance Dance Revolution (DDR) is a music video game series produced by Konami. Introduced in Japan in 1998, Dance Dance Revolution is the pioneering series of the rhythm and dance genre in video games. Players stand on a "dance platform" or stage and hit coloured arrows laid out in a cross with their feet to musical and visual cues. Players are judged by how well they time their dance to the patterns presented to them and are allowed to choose more music to play to if they receive a passing score. Come see if you're a Starlord or a Gamora upstairs in the Quantum Realm at ThunderCon 2018!
