Junction 8 is making Christmas a little more exciting with an experience that will literally take you out of this world. Happening at the mall’s Level 2 Atrium from 19 November to 2 December, this year’s festivities feature a Gateway To Space theme, with activities ranging from an immersive VR adventure to a space-inspired Christmas market for the whole fam.
At Straight Into Space, you’ll be going on a thrilling ride – yep, you guessed it – into space through a virtual reality experience, with 180 to 360 degree turns that will leave you at the edge of your seat. Need a break from the adrenaline rush? Take a leisurely walk along a ‘starlit’ path and into Reach for the Stars, a ‘cosmic’ room filled with dazzling light installations. We know you won’t be able to resist taking a couple of selfies for the ‘gram! The festive excitement continues at Galaxy Explorers, where a space odyssey awaits in the form of a virtual reality movie segment. And what better way to round off your adventure than with a grab from a rocket claw machine at the Instant Cheer station? There are $20,000 worth of prizes, so don’t forget to try your hand at snagging one for yourself.
If shopping is on the agenda, Junction 8 has heaps of great gift ideas in store. The mall’s Christmas Market promises to offer quirky, space-themed finds from a curated selection of independent designers.
Grab your Space Pass
Want in on the excitement? All you have to do is spend $50 at Junction 8 to redeem a Space Pass to Gateway to Space. Perks include access to all activities and a $10 Christmas Market shopping credit (terms and conditions apply, of course) – it’s about time you got into the mood for Christmas.
