If you’re still stuck on ideas for a Christmas / end of year party and looking to try something new, we recommend taking your friends to a virtual reality escape room session.
Located in the heart of Sydney, and now Melbourne, Virtual Room takes the concept of escape rooms up a notch with a fully immersive 3D experience. Played in groups of up to four people, each player will be assigned their own room, so everyone has to work together and complete the mission. There’ll be no sitting on the sidelines when you’re alone in the room and communicating with your friends via virtual reality gear.
The entire session lasts from 40 – 50 minutes, and there’s no gore or horror so you don’t have to be on edge for jumpscares. For those who easily get headaches or motion sickness, Virtual Room guarantees none of that will happen, as the experience is developed specifically to avoid any discomforts, thanks to the HTC Vives and specially designed in-house software.
Missions include “Time Travel“, where you get to explore different time eras, including ancient Egypt, the dinosaur age, and futuristic outer space to find and rescue lost agents. There’s also “Are We Dead?“, set in the year 2040 and the planet has been devastated by a zombie infection. Scientists have found a cure and are ready to eliminate zombies – except you and your team are the zombies and have to escape for your survival.
We’re giving away a Virtual Room session for a group of up to four in either Sydney or Melbourne for you and your mates!
