What is Virtual Reality (VR)?

Virtual reality (VR) is the use of computer technology to create a simulated environment. Unlike traditional user interfaces, VR places the user inside an experience. Instead of viewing a screen in front of them, users are able to interact with the 3D world and feel like they’re really inside it.

What to Expect When You Arrive

When you enter our "arcade", you will be asked to choose the games which best suit your taste, whether it be using the Force, swimming with whales, or anything else! We will then relocate you to the centre of the game mat, ensuring that throughout the whole exciting process you don’t harm yourself in any way.

How Does VR Work Exactly?

We will hook you up with HD VR special stereoscopic displays (high-quality goggles that present game data), headphones and hand controllers. With this arsenal of gear, every move you make in real-time is simulated perfectly within the game. You won’t miss even a minute of the action!

Throughout the whole duration of the game, you can expect to be moving, ducking, shooting, and more, so you’ll feel like you’re right there! You might even get a workout in!

Every way you move will be simulated perfectly in-game, creating a full-body experience that you have to try to believe!
