This Christmas, Market City, in the heart of Sydney’s Chinatown, is inviting shoppers and gaming enthusiasts to step into an exciting virtual reality winter wonderland.
From 23 November, visitors will be able to participate in a custom-built, free virtual reality (VR) gaming experience, with up to $30,000 in prizes on offer.
Candy Cane Fight VR, located on the first floor of Market City, is a three-minute immersive VR gaming experience designed for ages eight and upwards. Four people can play the game simultaneously daily between 11.30 am and 5.30 pm from 23 November until 26 December.
Using the VIVE Pro professional headset with built-in headphones, gamers enter a rich VR winter wonderland, where Frosty the Snowman’s younger brother, Grumpy, is attempting to destroy Christmas. Gamers must try to defeat the 10-foot snowman across a series of levels to save the holiday season.
Prizes from retailers – including Playtime, Dangerfield, Review, 1001 Optical, Chatime, Skechers, OSIM, Crumpler and Market City’s 1909 Dining Precinct – will be awarded daily, with the top scorer taking home the ultimate Santa sack, worth $1500, with tech gear from Capitol Computers, Asus and Cool Master, as well as retail vouchers from leading Market City stores and dining venues, among other prizes.
To find out more information about the game and the prizes involved, visit the Market City website.
Market City is open 365 days a year. The retail hub houses more than 100 retail brands, specialist stores, authentic Asian eateries and Paddy’s Markets.
