"I wasn't into VR before but I am now!"

I attended a vendor sponsored event at VR World a few months ago and had a great time. I came in a little skeptical, as my past experiences with VR had all been underwhelming. This was definitely not the case at VR World. The games are titles you can download at home, and the hardware (PCs, headsets, motion sensors, TVs, etc) is all stuff you can get off the shelf- but the package here is more than the sum of its parts. Using the expertly configured equipment in an optimal environment adds a lot to the immersion and to the fun. This was missing when I've tried VR at arcades or people's houses. I never thought Fruit Ninja could be such a thrill, for example. It was also a blast to revisit Space Channel 5 in VR. Shooting zombies in the four player co-op game with other folks from my industry was a treat as well. The staff were all friendly and helpful, particularly the woman who warned me about how intense the skyscraper walking simulation was! I'm looking forward to coming again.

Loved everything about this place! Didn’t really know what to expect, decided to go for a day to take the 10-year old son of my fiancé. They offer A LOT of VR games which was great! Kept him preoccupied and entertained the whole time. Staff were very helpful as well, especially with the son of my fiancé. They are all very knowledgeable on all the games and just anything about VR and their company. I wish I got all their names, but I do remember Zoe, Addie, Solo and Kevin to be VERY helpful. Zoe was very pleasant, I’ve never played any of the games and she was very happy to teach us how to play the game. She even was nice enough to be my photographer while playing the game. Addie as well was very helpful and I love her energy! Very positive and the perfect attitude for someone working with people. Solo was very sweet with the son of my fiancé and really looked after him the whole time he played a game in her section. Kevin too was very helpful and has a great personality! All smiles and a very pleasant person. Really perfect for this industry! There was a man who helped us as well but I didn’t get his name, I do remember he assisted in removing the VR after the game and said, “welcome back!”. That statement was the icing on the cake! For some reason him saying that made me feel good about being back 😄 price was pretty good for 2 hours, especially with all the games you can play. Overall, love the place and their staff. They are all ready to assist you and are very pleasant. They are also very good with kids, as if I were at a VR daycare 😄

Went with a group of 3 people and it was an incredible time - especially with it being cold outside! Very short wait times, a lot of choices and types of games, and an extremely friendly staff. Special thanks to William "Will Power" for really making our experience a blast!

Staff were extremely rude and seemed like they hate their job and if you dont like it they dont care. The zombie game was off the entire time we were there because the machines got too hot!lol racing game made you puke nobody actually finished it! The staff were very unconsiderate and they treat you like they are too good to be talking to you . Very pricey ! I was at a game and i was done playing and the staff that was supposed to be there walked off to do something, i kept calling for her and no response so i took my equipment off and another staff came and started yelling at me haha really dont go!! I feel like its too early for vr needs a couple more years and more professional people! Go buy a vr set instead;)
