We have been coming regularly to this location for about a year now. As soon as we leave my don asks when we are going back. The atmosphere is great and the experience is wonderful. The staff are amazing! I cannot say enough good things about all of them. Helpful, personable and knowledgable. Always feel comfortable going in there. They are super friendly and make the experience even more enjoyable. I definately recommend this location !

When I booked I was told that our group would not be able to enter the playing area until everyone in there was done in order for any customers to enjoy their time uninterrupted. I was not extended the same consideration. 20 minutes before my group was done people started to pour thru the door and having very loud and active conversation right beside the booth I was in. The till and booking should be set up separate from the gaming area.

Ctrl V Red Deer was awesome!!. Super accommodating and flexible with my son (who has a disability)..managed the sound, turned the screen in so that I could see what I was helping him with, helped selecting games that were easier to navigate (played 3)..AND even held the headset in front of his eyes, rather than him wearing it, to avoid being overwhelmed. He did wear it for a while too. Fantastic staff;) All the kids at the party had a fantastic time!!

This was NOT an enjoyable. I have no experience playing video games. The staff was more interested in goofing around & going for smoke brakes. When no one came to help I just stopped & no one even asked why

2 parents. 2 brats. 4 thumbs up! This was our first time going but will definitely not be our last. AJ and his co- worker were extremely helpful the whole time. Pretty easy to use even for the technologically challenged and uncoordinated people like me. Good value for our money and time. We are still talking about it 4 hours later!!!

We came in for my daughters 9th birthday and wow!! This place exceeded all of our expectations and everyone had so much fun! AJ assisted all 12 or us and made sure everyone was having fun. He showed us games that were not on the main screen and had us all laughing the whole time. We will be back for sure

Me and 1 other booked for an hour, and arrived on time. They then proceeded to tell us that we were reduced to 50 minutes of gameplay for the tutorial video that we didn't watch yet. When I arrived at my station it was missing a controller and the staff then attempted to only use one. After this event, they outright refused to connect my friend into my game and forced us to get off. At the end of the session we got scammed out of a total of 47 mintues and wasting 13 because the lighting was too dark and they wouldn't let me adjust it.

I booked two kids in today for their first VR experience. The gaming was great, the facility was great. What was truly impressive, was how patient, professional, and helpful the two staff members were! Imagine, a corridor full of 10-14 year olds, the kids were wild, and kept accidentally smacking the walls, the staff didn’t lose their cool once, they just gently guided the kids to be careful and mindful of the walls. It was really great to see.

We went there for my son's birthday party. Had 3 kids . My son spent the first 10 min of his hour waiting for the guy to fix his controller. My nephews controller quit 5 min before his hour was up and the other kid ,his vr kept taking too long to load ,only got about half hour of play time . Was not a good experience

I wasn't sure what to expect at first, and was slightly nervous. Within five minutes of wearing the big goggles and "looking around me", that nervousness turned to excitement and I can already tell this rush of dopamine and endorphins will become a new addiction. I'm already looking forward to the next visit - there's no entertainment exactly like this!

We had the best time at Ctrl V today! I brought six kids and myself and they hooked us up so we could all hear each other so I could play and enjoy myself while still being able to hear what they were doing and if they had any problems. The staff was awesome and super helpful and patient with us all. I can not wait to go back!

The atmosphere was wicked ; the gameplay even better once you got the hang of it , you never want it to end . We had a big group of 8 and was a lot of fun. My son and his friend were working up a sweat with lazer beat. And me n my other family did a group of 4 with the sunset zombie horde mode was a really good time. An hour went past quick.

My grandchildren are dealing with a huge loss. I took them here to allow them a little fun - they were so happy and said it was a very cool and fun place. The staff was helpful and polite and very kind. I (the grandma) appreciated a comfortable place to wait for them. One of my grandchildren was visiting from Texas and said it was so much fun.

What an awesome place. The staff was excellent. We took my son and 4 friends for his 11th birthday and all of us, parents and 8 yr old sister included, had a blast. The hour went by fast, so we were happy that each kid had their own station. We will definitely go back soon.

Amazing staff. Amazing fun, and an incredible work out. It’s not expensive and it’s something fun for kids probably age 8 and up. The staff are helpful and interactive. Will definitely be doing this again!! If you need to get out of the house just for a bit do this! It’s close to home and couldn’t be more interactive!

CAN'T WAIT TO GO BACK! I must admit I was a little intimidated about a VR arcade. I've never been a big gamer and I'm not the most tech savvy person so I kept my expectations reasonable. Without a doubt, I had one of the most enjoyable afternoons in recent memory! The staff are so helpful and willing to address any questions or concerns. In no time my friends and I were so immersed that time just flew by and I didn't want to leave. You can guarantee that I'll be back! To anyone that is on the fence about VR, please give Ctrl V a try and then thank me later.

AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME! This was my 2nd visit, this time with the kids. I visited a few months ago and was blown away by how real it was. So I brought the kids during summer break and they had a blast. The team really looked after them, explaining everything to them and being patient with them too. Definitely recommend it both for adults and for kids!

I went in yesterday for my first experience with modern VR. I enjoyed the gameplay, but it took some time to get used... to. I was having strange visual effects afterward for about an hour (similar to when you get a new pair of glasses and everything looks like it is in a fish bowl). I played Arizona Sun and Creed Boxing. Enjoyed both, but Arizona Sun more. This experience was mind-blowing. The computing power was not bad, but my friend (who I was playing co-op with) said that he has seen better VR quality in other places). I liked it. The facility is very open. I would hope that they would make the place look cleaner. The whole operation looked.... temporary. It reminded me of an escape room business where as little money is put into decorations or furniture as humanly possible. Staff were friendly enough but seemed bored. Training was a terrible video and some basic info from the staff member. I had to call the staff member over a few times to help. The first time I had to step out of the gaming system to get him from the front desk. The other times he came right to me. The time went by very quick. The think I might just look into buying one of these systems and become a home gamer... Overall: 3.5/5 Would I go again: yes Frequency: a few times a year Value for $$$: 3/5 Fee: $20-$25 per hour per personread more

The staff are amazing! I cannot say enough good things about all of them. Helpful, personable and knowledgable. Always feel comfortable going in there. They are super friendly and make the experience even more enjoyable. I definately recommend this location !

Clean and friendly service! Thursdays Bogo is 39 taxes in and you get one hr per person! I suggest wearing lightweight clothing because it can get warm 🙂

When I booked I was told that our group would not be able to enter the playing area until everyone in there was done in order for any customers to enjoy their time uninterrupted. I was not extended the same consideration. 20 minutes before my group was done people started to pour thru the door and having very loud and active conversation right beside the booth I was in. The till and booking should be set up separate from the gaming area.

Ctrl V Red Deer was awesome!!. Super accommodating and flexible with my son (who has a disability)..managed the sound, turned the screen in so that I could see what I was helping him with, helped selecting games that were easier to navigate (played 3)..AND even held the headset in front of his eyes, rather than him wearing it, to avoid being overwhelmed. He did wear it for a while too. Fantastic staff;) All the kids at the party had a fantastic time!!

This was NOT an enjoyable. I have no experience playing video games. The staff was more interested in goofing around & going for smoke brakes. When no one came to help I just stopped & no one even asked why

2 parents. 2 brats. 4 thumbs up! This was our first time going but will definitely not be our last. AJ and his co- worker were extremely helpful the whole time. Pretty easy to use even for the technologically challenged and uncoordinated people like me. Good value for our money and time. We are still talking about it 4 hours later!!!

We came in for my daughters 9th birthday and wow!! This place exceeded all of our expectations and everyone had so much fun! AJ assisted all 12 or us and made sure everyone was having fun. He showed us games that were not on the main screen and had us all laughing the whole time. We will be back for sure

Me and 1 other booked for an hour, and arrived on time. They then proceeded to tell us that we were reduced to 50 minutes of gameplay for the tutorial video that we didn't watch yet. When I arrived at my station it was missing a controller and the staff then attempted to only use one. After this event, they outright refused to connect my friend into my game and forced us to get off. At the end of the session we got scammed out of a total of 47 mintues and wasting 13 because the lighting was too dark and they wouldn't let me adjust it.

I booked two kids in today for their first VR experience. The gaming was great, the facility was great. What was truly impressive, was how patient, professional, and helpful the two staff members were! Imagine, a corridor full of 10-14 year olds, the kids were wild, and kept accidentally smacking the walls, the staff didn’t lose their cool once, they just gently guided the kids to be careful and mindful of the walls. It was really great to see.

We went there for my son's birthday party. Had 3 kids . My son spent the first 10 min of his hour waiting for the guy to fix his controller. My nephews controller quit 5 min before his hour was up and the other kid ,his vr kept taking too long to load ,only got about half hour of play time . Was not a good experience

I wasn't sure what to expect at first, and was slightly nervous. Within five minutes of wearing the big goggles and "looking around me", that nervousness turned to excitement and I can already tell this rush of dopamine and endorphins will become a new addiction. I'm already looking forward to the next visit - there's no entertainment exactly like this!

Very accommodating staff. The games were lots of fun. If it's a 1st time you almost need 2hrs to kind of get the hang of everything.

We had the best time at Ctrl V today! I brought six kids and myself and they hooked us up so we could all hear each other so I could play and enjoy myself while still being able to hear what they were doing and if they had any problems. The staff was awesome and super helpful and patient with us all. I can not wait to go back!

It was an awesome day celebrating my birthday with you guys. Majority of us, first time playing the virtual games, staff were very helpful and lots of patience teaching us how to play.. for you guys THANK YOU SO MUCH. I will recommend you guys to my friends and family who wants something different to celebrate any occasions. And for the function room we used after playing.. very nice, clean, spacious and surprise there was already birthday banner. Thank you also even for a short noticed booking .. you find time to accommodate. See you next time again.

The atmosphere was wicked ; the gameplay even better once you got the hang of it , you never want it to end . We had a big group of 8 and was a lot of fun. My son and his friend were working up a sweat with lazer beat. And me n my other family did a group of 4 with the sunset zombie horde mode was a really good time. An hour went past quick.

My grandchildren are dealing with a huge loss. I took them here to allow them a little fun - they were so happy and said it was a very cool and fun place. The staff was helpful and polite and very kind. I (the grandma) appreciated a comfortable place to wait for them. One of my grandchildren was visiting from Texas and said it was so much fun.

My son and I went to Ctrl V in Red Deer for the first time yesterday and had the best experience. Not only was it a lot of fun but the staff was amazing. The young man working there went above and beyond to help my son and I. He made sure that we had a great experience. We will be going back soon!

What an awesome place. The staff was excellent. We took my son and 4 friends for his 11th birthday and all of us, parents and 8 yr old sister included, had a blast. The hour went by fast, so we were happy that each kid had their own station. We will definitely go back soon.

Amazing staff. Amazing fun, and an incredible work out. It’s not expensive and it’s something fun for kids probably age 8 and up. The staff are helpful and interactive. Will definitely be doing this again!! If you need to get out of the house just for a bit do this! It’s close to home and couldn’t be more interactive!

CAN'T WAIT TO GO BACK! I must admit I was a little intimidated about a VR arcade. I've never been a big gamer and I'm not the most tech savvy person so I kept my expectations reasonable. Without a doubt, I had one of the most enjoyable afternoons in recent memory! The staff are so helpful and willing to address any questions or concerns. In no time my friends and I were so immersed that time just flew by and I didn't want to leave. You can guarantee that I'll be back! To anyone that is on the fence about VR, please give Ctrl V a try and then thank me later.

AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME! This was my 2nd visit, this time with the kids. I visited a few months ago and was blown away by how real it was. So I brought the kids during summer break and they had a blast. The team really looked after them, explaining everything to them and being patient with them too. Definitely recommend it both for adults and for kids!

I went in yesterday for my first experience with modern VR. I enjoyed the gameplay, but it took some time to get used... to. I was having strange visual effects afterward for about an hour (similar to when you get a new pair of glasses and everything looks like it is in a fish bowl). I played Arizona Sun and Creed Boxing. Enjoyed both, but Arizona Sun more. This experience was mind-blowing. The computing power was not bad, but my friend (who I was playing co-op with) said that he has seen better VR quality in other places). I liked it. The facility is very open. I would hope that they would make the place look cleaner. The whole operation looked.... temporary. It reminded me of an escape room business where as little money is put into decorations or furniture as humanly possible. Staff were friendly enough but seemed bored. Training was a terrible video and some basic info from the staff member. I had to call the staff member over a few times to help. The first time I had to step out of the gaming system to get him from the front desk. The other times he came right to me. The time went by very quick. The think I might just look into buying one of these systems and become a home gamer... Overall: 3.5/5 Would I go again: yes Frequency: a few times a year Value for $$$: 3/5 Fee: $20-$25 per hour per personread more

Just had my kids' bday party there. staff was fantastic and super flexible and accommodating to ensure my son (who has... a disability) had a good experience. Even holding the headset near his eyes so that wearing it would not be overwhelming, managing sound, changing games and having the screen turned in so that I could help as well. So awesome! Great feedback from all of their (party for both my kids) friends too...great time had by all:)read more
