Been there three times and had a blast each time. The staff are friendly, polite, and helpful. Arizona Desert is by far my favourite game there. I would recommend it for any one who is a fan of Call of Duty's Zombie mode. Beat Sabre is also a ton of fun. Avoid playing games where you have to use your thumb on the circle pad to move. It get's quite dizzying. Raw Data was one such game and at the end of it I felt a little nauseous. Highly Recommend going there.

This place is exactly what you'd hope a VR place would be. About 10-12 stations (I didn't count, might be a little more), staff that helps you figure out what you're doing, and a good selection of games. Multiplayer mode is also included. The only thing I can think of to improve this would be to add more games, but it seems like they're adding new games consistently anyways. I can't imagine it'll stay a negative factor for long, so I'm leaving 5 stars and I'd encourage you to do the same.

Second time going. Lots of fun. Staff is very helpful. Would like to see more multiplayer games like Onward or other titles that can’t be played without a VR set like the Rick and Morty game. Would also be cool to see some sort of membership package for those that want to go a few times a week. Awesome experience overall. Highly recommend bringing someone who has never experienced VR.

Awesome place for the whole family went there for a Birthday party the staff is fantastic and very knowledgeable with all the games. The first time is a bit learning curve if you have never played Virtual Reality before but with the help of the staff, you'll be a pro in no time. Can't wait to bring my Family back.

My second experience at VR was not good . When children are involved and staff speak in a way that’s not very kind I have difficulty with that . When inappropriateness language is used and staff don’t address it because they don’t see it since they are trying to save money I have a hard time with that . The CEO Ryan Brooks lacks professionalism and empathy. He proved as much in his first reply which included “ ha ha.” Charmaine was very receptive but didn’t offer any resolution seeing as the company is trying to save money . Their competitor VR wonderland is amazing ! They completely understood my concerns and have policies around how to deal with inappropriate language and their staff didn’t say “ read the instructions “ or “ if I have to deal with them so should you .” I do hope resolution can occur as I want to support local businesses. Thankyou .

Talk about such a cool experience for us first-timers! WOOO WHOOOOO! We had such fun immersing ourselves into a believable world. The owners/instructos are beyond welcoming and have such patience and guidance while teaching us how to play such mind-bogglingly games. Most importantly, they were/are beyond accepting to individuals with special needs. I/we value their willingness in teaching us how on earth to use the virtual reality gaming motion controller and to be able to transform our hand actions in digital inputs. We totally achieved success through social capital!
