A screen wrapped around you.

Disney already did this 50 years ago.

I also question shadows shown if there is video on the floor.

I mean, it will be neat, but completely artificial and NOT REMOTELY like VR. None of the images will have depth.

That looks really cool... but this doesnt look like a holodeck.

Or, I could just stay at home, avoid the crowds and bullshiat, and visit the MOR in my existing PCVR headset.

The amount of that's guy's emissions on the Holodeck must have caused untold horrors for the next users.

I'm looking forward to checking this out when it opens in Atlanta.

I don't expect anything amazing but it looks like a cool place to hang out and drink if it's not insanely crowded.

For a similar thing, I went to "The Van Gogh Experience" last week and was very underwhelmed. There was a small "gallery" with big reproductions of some paintings, and then a big room with a thirty minute or so video projected on the walls and floor that animated the paintings mimicking his style.  It was pleasant and soothing, but not very impressive.

Ooh, I'll have to give that a try once I can get Oculus Link working properly (it doesn't like Radeon GPUs, apparently).

It was called a CAVE and became totally obsolete when cheap HMDs became commercially available. No shadows, because it is back-projected.

That screen they have on the floor of the mall where kids jump and pop virtual balloons is more immersive and believable than this.

/boo
//$40 for the Van Gogh 'immersive' experience?

Tell that to the poor Ensign that has to scrub out the biological and particulate filters after every Holodeck session.
