Got teenagers that need a break, this is the place! Staff is really nice and helpful. The games are also very entertaining. Place is a bit run down, but the main thing is the games and the staff

This is the one place my son wanted to visit. We went in the early morning and everything was just okay. They do not accept cash which was annoying. The games were not as advanced as we expected, one even kept having a pop up of an error message. The overall feel is that the place is unfinished and will soon be amazing, however it is not amazing right now. If it’s out of your way it’s not worth it.

"A Day Full of VR"

VR World was blast! I showed up with several friends and we all purchased the full day pass. We spent the entire day there. There were tons of different games that ranged from shooters like the zombie game to art games and my favorite which was an Ayuhuasca experience on the mezzanine. The space is huge and each of the games is accompanied by a guide who explains the controls and guides you throughout your experience. Would absolutely recommend to come with friends and spend a whole day here!

My son thought this was the most amazing place. We tried to go on a rainy day, and they weren’t letting people in because it was too crowded. We went back the next day when it was sunny and was able to get in. There was a short line for every game, but we were all still able to play several games in our 2 hour window. I’d recommend having 1 person get inline for the multi player games, then you can bring other people in your party with you to play them - it increases the amount of game time. The people running the games were hit or miss, but if you are friendly to them, they were all very nice back. It was pricey for the amount of time spent waiting, but it was a very fun way to spend a couple hours after site seeing. We would definitely go back, especially once we got the hang of the line system and how to work it. My 12 YO was begging to stay the day.
