Please take this into consideration if you are pregnant or have any adverse medical conditions contrary to these activities.
Will I be shown how to use the VR system?
Absolutely, we will give you a short briefing when you arrive for general instructions and safety information. If it’s your first time and you are unsure, we suggest playing the VR tutorial where you will be walked through a hands-on rundown of the controllers and the Virtual world.

What if I wear glasses?
VR headsets are made with room in front of the eyes to allow players to still wear their glasses, however for prolonged use it may be uncomfortable to some people. However in order to get the most of your gaming experience it is important that you can see as clearly as possible. For that reason we strongly recommend that if contacts are an option for a participant that they wear them on the day of their VR experience.
How hygienic are the VR devices?
We take health and hygiene very seriously at VR-Plus. We understand that the VR Goggles are used by several different players on any given day and have measures in place to keep everyone who comes in contact with them from sharing germs or illness. We have hygienic leather face masks which we swap out after each play. Before the swapped out face mask is entered back into circulation it is sterilized with anti bacterial wipes.
What if I am late?
Please try to arrive on time as you will affect the length of your own game play if you show up after your scheduled booking, as we can’t keep those who have rented the VR system after you waiting.
Can I extend my play?
Yes, you can extend your time with our equipment but only as long as there are no bookings after your session. You can always check before you arrive to see if the option to extend will be available by, visiting our website and going to bookings or by calling the store.
How big are the playing areas?
Each playing area is about 8 m^2 (3m*2.6m).
Will I walk into objects?
The VR system has a built-in safety feature called Chaperone which will have a pre-determined perimeter letting players know they are close to a wall. This will be indicated in game by the use of a coloured grid. Participants will be instructed how to navigate the bays and properly read the grid during the brief instructional our staff provides before all sessions of play.
Will I get motion sickness from VR?
The majority of our titles won’t upset even the weakest of stomachs, only a few specific games have the ability to cause the user to feel as though they are moving in a manner foreign to them, which may cause an uneasy feeling. That said if you don’t have a pre-existing condition or a vulnerability to motion sickness then you should be fine. If a specific game or level is causing you to feel a bit iffy, you have the ability to change it right then and there. Additionally we can and will provide chairs to any and all players who may find playing from a seated position helpful.
Can I take photos or videos?
You are more than welcome to film and video yourself and your friends within your Playing Bay, but if you wish to film other people in the area, ensure that you seek consent. VR Plus may wish to photograph or film you for promo purposes but we will always seek your permission first.
I’m having a party at VR Plus. Can I bring my own food and drinks?
Yes! We also have softdrinks and water for sale, and have a large table where you’re welcome to eat and cut cake!
All food, cutlery and plates must be brought by you.
