I had so much fun tonight! My co-workers and I went for a company outing and we all have such a blast. Beat saber has gotta be my favorite game. Also everyone there was really nice and accommodating and if you needed help they would help right away with the best attitude. A bunch of good people. I definitely plan on going back soon. 🙂

We had a pretty good time. The one issue I’d mention is that if you have never done this before, a lot of your time is spent just getting familiar with the environment. The training talk is ok, but translating the discussion into real life (well, virtual real life I guess) is not so easy. By the time you understand the instructions and have used them with the equipment, your time is up. Maybe the initial training can add a few free minutes to experiment. I know they have some scheduled free days, but those times don’t always work.

Amazing chance to try virtual reality gaming! Since the budget for VR gaming at home is really high, this is a great option to try the games without the investment. Make sure to check out the deals throughout the week as well! The staff is very friendly and helpful in getting you acclimated to how to play the games, and the options are great! There's a lot of games that adults would enjoy and it's great for kids too. They are also able to host events so it's a great change of pace for a birthday party! Each gaming setup has its own booth with padded floors for comfort, and everything is kept clean too!

Updated* received a response from owner, appreciate the understanding and effort to improve. Small miscommunication initially. Would still recommend to others. Thanks * Original post* First time here and I brought cousins from another country. You have to pay up front to make a reservation. I kind of dislike how stiff, the place is run on block scheduling and the employees aren't accommodating. I had no idea of I was a few minutes late they were going to dock my play time. There was no line behind me and more than half the booths empty.. Besides that, the expertise and patience of the workers at the facility is good. The place is clean and the overall experience is enjoyable and fun. The place doesn't have bi lingual options for instructions or tutorials. The game library is good and PCs are upscale so all the games are smooth.
