Millennial’s and Gen Z’s of Houston and the surrounding areas get reading because the remarkable sci-fi experience of a lifetime – Seismique, is coming to our town in the fall of 2020.
Let me paint the picture, deep in outer space, in the faraway places of our universe is a spaceship coming towards earth. Shooting past all the stars and plants in the permeated place of space yet traveling through the desolate parts safely and soundly.
Seismique: A Mind-Bending Interactive Experience
The artist behind the futuristic masterpiece is Steve Kopelman. He has over 40 years of experience in this art and design industry and has experimented with the architecture of haunted house and escape rooms. No wonder why he served as the principal and COO of the national chain of Escape the Room. He’s now used his artistic abilities to produce an experimental art museum in west Houston with the title Seismique.
Opening this fall, Seismique will feature more than 40 rooms — or “galaxies,” to go with the extra-terrestrial theme — incorporating artificial intelligence, immersive experiences, gamification, and displays of light, color and sound.
People are encouraged to maximize their experience by visiting Seismique multiple times. Since the rooms will be changing every six months, there will be plenty to see over the span of its lifetime.
Seismique is planning on opening in the fall of 2020 and will feature over 40 rooms immersed with the feel of galaxies to go with the out-of-this-world theme. It will integrate artificial intelligence, immersive experiences, gamification, and displays of light, color and sound.
Seismique will be held in a former Bed Bath & Beyond off of Highway 6. The space is 40,000 square feet with 20 foot ceiling and two floors with elevators. Kopelman said all the factors contributed to him choosing the space. The biggest factor he said was the large parking lot which he estimates will bring 250,000 to 500,000 people in the first year.
“We live in an experience economy. Millennials and the younger generations are about the experience. What can I experience and post on my Instagram?” said Steve Kopelman.
“Houston has a huge population base. It’s international; it’s got high culture, lots of different arts and entertainment.”
Kopelman also stated that “Gen Z and Millennials strive to experience something, whether it’s a sunrise at Machu Picchu, or a great, artistic fun thing to do.”
Tickets to Seismique will run just about under $30 for an all-day pass.
