With virtual reality experiencing something of a second coming thanks to a slew of relatively cheap headsets like the Oculus Rift, HTC Vive or even Google Cardboard, it should come as no surprise that a big entertainment company like Universal Studios has jumped on the bandwagon.

This year's Halloween Horror Nights will feature The Repository, a haunted house experience that combines VR headsets and live action storytelling.



The official story from Universal Studios mentions a plot involving an old warehouse, spectral transportation and a secret organization, but what we really want to know is where we can pull up a chair and watch patrons walk face-first into walls.

The Repository is not included with the normal Halloween Horror Nights admission, but instead is available as a $49.99 upgrade to your regular HHN pass.

Halloween Horror Nights runs Sept. 29-Oct. 31, and tickets go on sale for annual passholders this coming Tuesday. Aug. 16 and to the general public the following Tuesday, Aug. 23.
