WHAT WE OFFER
CHOOSE YOUR REALM
At Virtual Realms we offer the complete VR room scale gaming solution. Each booth is 3x3 meters to give you enough space to move around freely in your virtual world without worrying about accidental collisions. With multiple booths on offer at once, it is easy to play games against your friends in real time, or challenge the best competition online!
There are hundreds of games on the market and hundreds more in development for the future. We have selected the very best games for your experience without cluttering up your selection. The games are tested by our team to ensure you have the best experience possible.
We aim to stay on the leading edge of VR technology with different types of experiences coming in the future.
VIRTUALLY A BEGINNER
You've most likely been introduced to video games at some point in your life, and if not you have nothing to fear! Our software comes with a tutorial to get you familiarised with VR and the controls.
Once you are done with the tutorial we have a landing area where you can see how much time there is left in the session, call for assistance and see all the games grouped by difficulty and genre!
At Virtual Realms we have the latest in VR technology providing both the OCULUS RIFT and HTC VIVE for our headset. While they work differently we feel the VIVE is best suited for room scale immersion and the OCULUS RIFT is great for a seated experience, which is why we use them for our vehicle simulation seats.
The headsets do nothing without the computer powering it behind the scenes. We have some of the most powerful VR ready computers to help provide the best experience possible. These computers are custom built to handle the intense graphic load required to generate the virtual world in a seamless and efficient manner.
Specification of computers:
For all the hardware geeks out there, we use a variety of high-end hardware to power our generators!
- CPU: AMD Ryzen / Intel i7
- Graphics Card: Nvidia 1080
- RAM: 16GB DDR4
- Display: Ultra HD TV
- Cooling: Water Cooling / Fans
Motion simulators bring another level of immersion to virtual reality experiences. Our sim-rigs are state of the art with 2 degrees of freedom to feel every turn, twist and slide. Motion simulators also help prevent motion sickness that some people are prone to while playing driving games.
We currently have 2 sim-rigs allowing multiplayer playing time.
Games currently available on the sim-rigs are Project Car 2.

SAFETY TIPS & HYGIENE
The headset has a fully adjustable head strap to maintain proper fit while playing. If the headset feels front heavy, then it has no been adjusted correctly! The headset will be wiped down before a session using sanitary wipes for hygiene purposes.
Each controller has a wrist loop that must be worn at all times while playing. The controllers are motion sensitive and can be seen with the headset on through the tracking system.
The booths are 3 x 3 meters with material padding that will absorb light impact with controllers or limbs but will cause injury or breakage with more force. The virtual world has a barrier of 2.5 x 2.5 meters to play in and will appear in your headset when approached, leaving you with 0.5 meters of safe zone before reaching the walls around you. If any of the experiences become too real or overwhelming it is advised to remove the headset and not try to physically react.
Cleanliness is a top priority when working with virtual reality equipment, especially when there are multiple users involved. We take every precaution necessary to make sure that our VR equipment is clean and hygienic wiped after each use for your health and our peace of mind.
Disposable masks are available on request. These sit between the user and the headset for that extra layer of protection.
FIRST TIME TO VIRTUAL REALMS
Every user is required to complete the waiver before their first time. Parents and guardians can complete waivers on behalf of children under the age of 13. The waiver can be found online, printed and emailed, or in store.
Anyone under the age of 13 must have a waiver signed by a parent or guardian before being allowed to play due to the mature or graphic content in some of the games titles. Titles with mature content can also be restricted upon request.
No matter how big or small your group we would love to have you with us.
Virtual Reality is giving new possibilities to the way people with disabilities can access and play games. Our store is fully accessible via a lift that goes straight into the shop floor. Please feel free to call us to see how we can accommodate any special requirements needed.
