SPACES opens the door to the world’s first VR SPACES Center, featuring the multi-sensory VR attraction: Terminator Salvation: Fight for the Future with more adventures slated for the future. Located within the recently revamped Irvine Spectrum Center in Orange County, one of Southern California’s most popular entertainment lifestyle destinations that attracts more than 17 million visitors annually, Terminator SalvationÔ: Fight for the Future marks the first-time guests will be able to experience location-based extended virtual reality built by the visionary VR and entertainment team that spun out of DreamWorks.
Join the resistance alongside friends and family members to blast Terminators with unique SPACES features like SPACES FACES (proprietary 3D scan of guests faces) and decked out with top-of-the-line immersive equipment including the HP Omen X VR Backpack workstation PC.

SPACES creates unlimited possibilities in any physical location through a unique moving, immersive journey, engaging all the senses through virtual mixed reality, haptic feedback, motion platforms and environmental effects that groups of guests can see, hear, and feel.
“Our amazingly fun, social SPACES attractions are built to be shared,” Brad Herman, SPACES CTO says. “We’re kicking off our first SPACES Center with a prominent franchise that is recognized and loved around the world, we make it easy for guests to share their SPACES experience the moment they take off their headset and that social-friendly mentality is built into every one of our SPACES attractions.”
“Many virtual reality experiences are described as ‘You have to see it to believe it’ and that is now a possibility with our first U.S.-based SPACES attraction at Irvine Spectrum Center,” Shiraz Akmal, SPACES CEO says. “We say that guests can ‘Go Anywhere, Do Anything’ and SPACES is opening locations around the world, partnering with premier locations to bring guests closer to the promise of extended reality (XR) than ever before.”
“We designed our VR backpacks precisely to enable visionary, driven teams to create groundbreaking social experiences,” explains Joanna Popper, head of location-based VR entertainment for HP. “SPACES attractions are a natural fit to showcase the unique adventures you can experience when you’re not tethered to a desktop PC or a television. SPACES location-based XR attractions give people the ability to experience a game or movie from the inside. It’s not storytelling, it’s story-living.”
