What Can I Expect
Virtual Reality is here on this amazing VR experience! Get ready to fully immerse yourself in the realm of augmented gaming with these brilliant sessions that are hosted by a simulator specialist. Find yourself battling in space, racing cars and fighting zombies in this very realistic virtual world you'll be stepping into.
Explaining what a virtual experience is like is pretty much impossible. It’s one of those things that you just have to try for yourself. It takes game playing to a whole new level, as you will soon forget where you are and get totally and utterly immersed in your new virtually real environment. This operator is offering 30 and 60 minute VR experiences, with an impressive catalogue of games for you to choose from.
Sessions principally use the leading HTC Vive VR headset. This is an impressive top-end piece of virtual reality kit that has impressed technology and gadget experts since its release. In essence, you will be wearing a wraparound face mask, that projects two high resolution images (one for each eye) with high quality surround sound headphones. In your hand, you’ll have two controllers that serve to hit, bat, poke, punch, shoot and steer around this crazy new virtual universe you’re about to enter.
And yes, when you first put the VR headset on you will feel a little self-conscious, but it’s surprising how quickly you get into your virtual reality experience. Before you know it, you’ll be literally ducking bullets and waving your light sabre around. When used in Room Space mode, the HTC Vive allows you to physically move around your mapped out play space, making for spookily realistic game play movement. It’s really clever how it works, with over 50 sensors on mask to plot where you are in the room and where you’re looking.
As we mentioned, this VR experience operator has an extensive collection of virtual reality games and activities which is updated continually with the biggest releases. Once you’ve got your headset on, it’s up to you whether you want to roam the post-apocalypse world with the Brookhaven Experiment, partake in a bit of sniper action like Serious Sam, or fight the enemy with lasers in Space Pirate Trainer. There’s also the chance to sit in a car simulator and experience a virtual drive with your headset on too. Whichever you choose, you’ll be heading for gaming glory in the indescribable virtual domain.
