    Hello DPMP! We are a family of 5; kids are 11, 14, and 17. What can you tell me about Star Wars: The Void? I'd like to know what to expect, and if it's appropriate for our family. How do you make reservations? How long does it last?

    Hi Eean, 

    Oh my goodness! Star Wars™: Secrets of the Empire by ILMxLAB and The VOID is absolutely AMAZING!! Seriously, for a Star Wars dork fan such as myself, it doesn't get much cooler than this! This past February, my oldest son, two youngest daughters, and I had such a BLAST experiencing this together. The high tech, super cool technology is hard to explain. I've never in my life experienced anything quite like it. Realistic doesn't begin to describe it. 

    All guests must be 48-inches or taller to participate. My youngest was 13 when she did it, and she's a bit anxious about a lot of things, but she loved it. She did, however, get a little freaked out when a certain villain made an appearance. One thing that you will want to take into consideration is that you are split into teams of four. Since you have a family of five, you will be separated and won't be able to all be in the same group. They will likely pair you with another group of two or three, depending on how you split your family up. 

    To make reservations, you can purchase tickets in advance online. They only do a few months out at a time. You can also purchase tickets on a walk-up basis, right there at the location. This is what I did, as we made a last minute decision to go. 

    The entire experience is approximately 30-40 minutes. There is an informational session where you watch a video, get instructions, and suit up. This lasts about 10-15 minutes. Then you are transformed into a Stormtrooper for about 15-minutes or so. I highly recommend that you not watch any spoilers or read any blogs prior to doing this experience. I went into it with NO idea what to expect, and I was completely blown away. 

    Wishing you magical memories,
