What is virtual reality?
Virtual reality (VR) immerses you into an environment that simulates the real world or an imagined world, allowing you to interact in that world. To be honest words can just not describe... Just try it!
I'm not a gamer is virtual reality for me?
Definitely! VR is an amazing look in to the future of technology. Games aside we can transport you to the top of a mountain or to the sea floor. Alongside many incredible games we offer a range of creative arts, puzzles, team building, multi-player & storybook experiences.
TO BREAK IT DOWN... If you like movies, arts, adventures or general entertainment we guarantee you will have plenty to blow your mind & your socks off during your VR session at our studio!
*Parents often wish they would have brought along other family members but were unsure if the virtual reality studio would be a suitable choice for fun, creativity and entertainment. We are happy to say that we cater to all walks of life! (If you are unsure, please swing by and check us out for yourself or contact our helpful team on 027 350 3554.)

Do you have multiplayer games at Virtual Reality Studio?
SHORT ANSWER: YES
LONGER ANSWER: If you wish to play multiplayer we recommend a longer session time (110 mins). Most multiplayer games require a tutorial.. Once completed play your friends and family & yes, you will be able to communicate with them (through a built-in microphone). Be ready to embrace your competitive gaming spirit & see your friends’ actions performed by their chosen avatars!
I wear prescription glasses - do I need to take them off in VR?
Eye wear is able to fit inside while using the system. There are also adjustment knobs to configure the focus for each eye independently, and a separate adjustment knob to match the screen separation to your eyes.
If i die in the game do I die in real life?
Can I play more than one game during my session?
Of course you are free to play as many/ little as you wish!
Is there an age restriction?
Short answer: No, but we do recommend 6+
