Simu Liu unveiled a new sensory room at the Chase Center, home to the Golden State Warriors, on Monday.
According to CBS News, Liu donated the funds to update the room, which now bears his name, in 2019. The Marvel star dedicated the room on Monday before the Warriors’ game against the Oklahoma City Thunder.
The room is meant to help fans who may be overwhelmed by the Chase Center’s noisy, high-energy environment, the San Francisco Examiner reports. It now has artwork, puzzles, games, carpeted walls, noise cancellation and special lighting.
“For a number of these families who have mothers, fathers, children with sensory needs going to something like a public event seems unfathomable when the resources aren’t there, when there’s not the existence of a sensory room to help cope with those moments where the lights, the sounds… there’s an overstimulation of the senses,” Liu said, according to CBS News.
