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.

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.

#ctrlvshoe On Feb 8, 2019 was my first time going to Ctrl V St. Catharines, up to now I had only tried a VR game once and that was on a PS4 at my nephew's house. I was a little nervous as it would be my first time at an establishment. The staff were super friendly and had us watch a video on how to use the equipment. I was a little confused trying to remember what all the buttons did on the controller but the staff were right there making sure we were hooked up correctly and even once we were using the games they were right there helping remind us which buttons to use and checking up on us even when the establishment had a lot of other people playing. My first game was the skiing game and I could not believe how realistic it was and how I felt I was going to fall - I am sure they were amused on how my body was reacting to the game wobbling all around. LOL am I also played the Plank Game but was using something like a jet pack so I was flying around buildings, etc... incredible!! I played game were you can be underwater. I have been scuba diving for real, this game was incredible!! So realistic with the fish, whales, sharks even shipwrecks and a plan wreck. I could of stayed there all day. I also tried the version where you walk around with dinosaurs. I wanted to try one of those escape room puzzle games so ATTEMPTED to play Bloody Mary but I freaked myself out that I had to turn it off. I only got to light the candles and the power went off (in the game) and I didn't want to see what was going to come next, so I exited. LOL!!! NEXT time I will try and be braver. LOL. The hour went by quickly and we were sad to leave, but that gives us an excuse to return. Really hoping at some point a GHOSTBUSTER's game will appear or maybe PINBALL :). As soon as I got home I started to tell people about this amazing place. Hopefully when we return next time we will will have a group of friends/family. Thank You Ctrl V St. Catharines for the amazing fun evening/experience. We named it #VRDATENIGHT 🙂 Hope to see you again soon!!! Keep up the great work!!read more
