VR Games

VR Games




Finally it's here - the VR game where you can fly and shoot your friends. Or, join an inter-pub game for up to ten player mayhem. With a jetpack in one hand and a gun in another, navigate the floating village as you hunt down your friends.

Serious Sam

Team up with your friend in the VR booth next to you and fight off waves of aliens using oversized guns. Over-the top action that allows pairs of people to play together.

Archery (The Lab)

Stand atop your castle and defend it against the cartoon horde of invaders. Incredibly satisfying archery action. A regular favourite.




Q. I've never played a VR game before, is it hard?

We have had a huge range of people play, and we find that our games are easy to get into. The beauty of VR is that it mimics the real world, so the majority of it only requires you to act how you would in real life - i.e. moving your arms and legs!  We also have two large screens in each of the booths that project what the current Player can see - so you can always watch your friends play first to help you understand what is going to happen! Finally and most importantly when you play you will be paired with a trained instructor who will introduce you to our state of the art VR equipment and answer any questions that you have.

Q. Can children play?

We have some excellent games for children as well as adults - our experienced trainers can explain to you which ones are suitable for children to play.

Q. Can I play if I wear glasses/make-up? 

There is no problem with wearing glasses, contact lenses and/or make-up. We can adjust the headsets to make them comfortable for glasses wearers, and the headsets sit comfortably on your forehead and cheeks so no mascara issues!

Q. What should I wear?

You will find yourself ducking and moving around while you play so wear clothes and shoes you are comfortable in.

Q. Can we play as a group?

We have three VR booths so we can have three people playing simultaneously. You can also watch your friends and what they are seeing while you wait for a go! As you can see from our twitter feed many groups find that filming their friends playing is a very entertaining way of passing the time until their go!
