•  Jack the Ripper Virtual Reality Immersive Experience - Ready to travel back to 1888 Whitechapel London during the "Autumn of Terror," when the infamous Jack the Ripper had the city paralyzed with fear? You don't need a time machine, but you do need high-tech VR headsets and backpack computers that will allow you to roam freely through an old abandoned, haunted wax museum called The Wax House. The Legend of Jack the Ripper experience, lasting about 30 minutes, includes a media-based pre-show providing guests a glimpse into the history of the murders. Once inside the Wax House, you'll pick up and hold virtual items, open drawers, search for clues and work together as a team of four to find your way out - or become the next victim. The Jack the Ripper Immersive Experience opens August 31 and runs through Halloween night. Tickets are expected to sell out, so snatch yours quickly.
