We installed and opened our first Hollow Zone attraction this past September as a pop-up for the Autumn season. The attraction included a 30 x 36 foot VR arena along with a 200 sq ft fully themed pre show room.
HOLLOW STUDIOS PARTNERS WITH MOUNTASIA FAMILY FUN CENTER TO DEBUT
THE WAXHOUSE, LEGEND OF JACK THE RIPPER
Coming this fall for a limited time only:
Experience the latest in virtual reality technology in Wax House: The Legend of Jack The Ripper haunted house at Mountasia Family Fun Center in Santa Clarita, California. The brand new state-of-the-art multi-sensory virtual reality (VR) experience from Hollow Studios invites guests into one of history’s greatest mysteries. Guests in groups of up to four will be transported back in time to 1888, during what the newspapers of the time coined, “The Autumn of Terror”. A time when Jack The Ripper roamed the streets striking fear in the heart of Whitechapel, London.
Before suiting up in VR headsets, guests first enter an old dark London alleyway where they are recruited as assistants to a Scotland Yard detective. Media based effects tell the backstories of Jack The Ripper and the mysterious Wax House. Once inside, guests search through the creepy old abandoned wax museum looking for items and clues in hopes of answering the same question that has been on the minds of many for over a century: “Who was Jack the Ripper?”
Creative Executive, David Love of Hollow Studios, teamed up with Michael Fleming, Owner of Mountasia Family Fun Center, to bring Southern California's newest and most technologically advanced haunted house to life.
“The team at Hollow Studios wants the guests to feel what it was like to be in that time period, and to experience something so profound that they will continue talking about it many weeks later “ David Love stated. “Using our cinematic background, we made sure the story came first, then focused on the tiniest of details making sure our guests will be transported to a place they could never go to in the real world.” Love added “In the experience, you are able to pick up and hold virtual items, open drawers, search for clues, all while working together as a team of four moving through The Wax House in hopes of finding their way out before becoming the next victim.”
“I knew right away that this would not only be the talk of Santa Clarita, but all of Southern California.” Michael Fleming stated after experiencing the attraction for the first time. “I’ve never experienced anything like it. This is far more than just a Virtual Reality Game. The graphics and visuals really do immerse you in a different time. I felt like I was inside a movie. All the while, I found myself looking over my shoulder, knowing that Jack the Ripper could pop out at any moment.” Fleming added.
Wax House: The Legend of Jack The Ripper debuts August 31 and is open select days through Halloween night, October 31. To purchase tickets, before they sell out, visit HollowZone.com.

Here is what some of our guests and media outlets had to say.
"We didn’t know what to expect, but this sounded intriguing- How could we pass up the chance to investigate the White Chapel Murders? To deduce the identity of Jack The Ripper!
The set-up and staging from start to finish is masterfully done and beautiful. You can tell that there was exquisite attention to detail, transporting you to Whitechapel in the 1880s.
The four of us, enter the environment in delightful avatar form. We were able to work together, using special tools to discover clues in the hopes of solving the mystery. This is a quality VR experience that we found to be gorgeous, unique, and fun!
Do you like solving puzzles and fancy yourself a modern day Sherlock Holmes? Then the HollowZone’s Jack The Ripper VR Experience is right down that Whitechapel dimly-lit alley. The Game’s afoot! Good Luck!"
