WHAT MEASURES HAVE WE TAKEN TO PREVENT THE SPREAD OF COVID-19?
We take Covid19 very seriously! Good hygiene is always a priority for us and during these times we follow HSE guidelines closely so that you can safely experience VR.
Our qualified staff will guide you through your session and will explain everything you need to know before you get started.
Please be aware that following restrictions are in place:
– only 1 spectator per player
– sessions by appointment only, please book using our website booking tab
– customers are required to use the supplied hand sanitizer on arrival
– our staff will wear masks & we ask customers to wear one on arrival
– at present only VR gaming pods & 2 car sims are available
Other equipment will be made available at a later stage.
– We ask our patrons to arrive on time and leave promptly as soon as each session is over to avoid meeting other groups. We have created 15 minutes buffer in between each session to avoid groups overlapping.
WHAT IS VIRTUAL REALITY?
With the help of computer technology, VR – short for Virtual Reality, is an immersive experience in which users are teleported into a 3D world.
VR will make you feel like you are there mentally and physically. You turn, your head and your world turns with you so the illusion created by whatever world you see in is never lost.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Users will wear a headset. Some experiences are completely handsfree and some require the use of controls similar to electronic games. Dress fashionably for comfort. Our gaming pods have TV screens where your friends/family can watch the action that’s happening in the headset.
ARE THERE AGE RESTRCITIONS?
Virtual Reality World isn’t an all-ages attraction. In fact, children under age 8 aren’t recommended to play and certain games have age requirements, while a couple of others are geared toward those over 5-foot-2. Some experiences require physical movements.
WHAT ARE YOUR PRICES?
Our pricing for Parties and Team Events differs depending on the size and age of the group. We try our best to cater to all budgets. Speak to a member of staff today to learn what your Virtual Reality World has to offer you!
WHAT ARE YOUR SOCIAL MEDIA ACCOUNTS?
Follow us on Instagram @vrworldgalway and like us on Facebook @vrworldgalway and Twitter @vrworldgalway
WHAT ARE YOUR HOURS OF OPERATIONS?
We are open Monday to Wednesday by appointment only and Thursday to Sunday from 12 – 9pm, later by appointment. We are open everyday during school holidays. Please check our home page for any changes to our hours and schedules.
WILL YOU STORE MY STUFF?
We hate to say this, but there’s no storage on-site. Coming light and freely moving around the space is the best way to experience VR World. You can stash your belonging near where you’re playing, or hand off to family/friends.
DO YOU HAVE FOOD AND DRINKS?
Catering & light refreshments can be provided for parties and corporate events. No outside food or drinks are permitted at Virtual Reality World due to highly sophisticated electronics.
