Virtual Reality (VR) is the greatest performance of illusion known to man.
Understanding the science behind it takes nothing from the enjoyment of its magic. When you transport yourself into a digital world that you can physically interact with, the only limit to what can be done is your imagination.
Delivered to you through a comfortable headset, you can look straight into a digitally created space. Great artworks spring to life and impossible walks on the seabed become a reality.

Q. Are there any limitations?
A. Our locations provide excellent access for all kinds of requirements to get to our centre. With regards to our machines, most require the ability for full body movement and self-stabilising strength. We will always try to accommodate as best we can for anyone who wants to visit us, so long as there is no increased risk to safety of customers or our machines. Our VR Cinema Pods are an immersive passenger experience which we hope will give access to this incredible technology for the widest variety of people.
DISCLAIMER: The Omni-treadmill, has weight and height restrictions. These are 100kg max load, 4ft, 5” minimum and 6ft, 3″ max height. The guidelines are supplied by the manufacturer based on the design and load bearing parts of the structure.
If you suffer from any medical conditions, you should discuss these with a trained health professional. Certainly, any sensitivity to light or motion should be given due consultation before use of our machines.
Q. Is there an age limit?
A. There may be age limits based on the content of our individual experiences, but overall, we want to encourage access to this new world of experiences for everyone aged 8 and above. The main factor in this is to ensure the user is able to wear the headset comfortably and operate the larger machines.
DISCLAIMER: For those under the age of 10, we recommend a 30 minute session. This is due to the size of some of the machines that smaller children may not be able to use to complete a full hour rotation.
Q. How many people can we fit at one time?
A. Depending on what centre you are visiting we have various capacity limits. In Bristol we have a maximum of 12 stations running at one time. Under normal circumstances we allow a maximum of 10 for smooth transition between stations. For larger parties or corporate bookings please email email@example.com.
In Manchester we have 6 stations currently operational while we operate our temporary site in the premier location in Arndale, before we move to a bigger lot.
Q. Can we play local or online multiplayer?
A. Most of our machines support social play. Our VR cinema pods share experiences and our other simulators are locally connectable for multiplayer. This is subject to the local network and we appreciate your patience during the rare occasion when there are difficulties.
