Who is VR for?
We can cater for all ages from 5 years upwards, with no technical knowledge required whatsoever. We have a huge catalogue of experiences, there’s truly something for everyone and many of our experiences are perfectly playable in a wheelchair.
For children under 18, we require one adult per three children to help supervise and take care of our equipment.
Vulnerable or cared for persons need to be accompanied by an adult or recognised carer over the age of 18 who must remain in the studio whilst the sessions take place.
Pregnant women absolutely fine too!
Can I use the headset with glasses?
Yes, the headset is designed to work perfectly with glasses.
Do I need to bring anything with me?
Please wear comfortable clothing as are experiences can be quite active! We ask everyone to remove their shoes before stepping on our soft floor, so please come wearing socks too!
When should we arrive?
Please arrive no more than 5 minutes in advance of your booking time. We do not have a waiting area, so you’ll have to wait in your car if you arrive any earlier.
How do we find the studio?
Enter the Co-Innovation Centre building and head straight to the back to the door with the “VRVE” sticker on (between the cafe and the escape rooms).
Go through the door, turn left and head straight to the end of the corridor.
Is there car parking?
Yes! We are situated next to Stembrook Car Park which has plenty of spaces available.
Do we have to book in advance?
Yes please do! Our standard sessions you can book online, but if you have any issues, please contact us and our friendly team will be able to help. We only accept bookings at least 24 hours in advance and cannot accommodate drop-ins.
How long do we get?
With each hour slot, it varies with your choice of experience and speed of completing it. We will recommend appropriate experiences depending on the size of your group, so everyone will have a go.
Can I book multiple hours?
Yes of course! Whilst 1 hour is a great introduction to VR, an extra hour will give you enough time to try a variety of different experiences! To book multiple hours, simply add the second slot into your basket by heading back to the booking page.
How many people can come?
For a 1 hour slot, 4-6 people is ideal and is a good amount of time for everyone to try a variety of experiences.
Our studio can facilitate a maximum of 12 people under our larger group bookings at an additional cost of £7.50/pp (does not include Birthday Parties), contact us for more details! Please bear in mind that our equipment will be shared amongst your group, so the more people you bring the less time each you will have on the headsets.
Do you run birthday parties?
Yes! We can accommodate a maximum of 12 people in our studio and up to 10 aged 18 or under (minimum 1 accompanying adult per 5 children). Please contact us for further details about our birthday party bookings!
We can provide a PDF party invitation for you to print and use as you wish, and we now offer the option of sweetie cones for an additional price.
Please note that spectators will be charged even if they do not take part as they are taking up space in the studio that is used for the VR experiences. However this does give them the option to give it a go (and we encourage everyone to do so!)
What equipment do you have?
Our standalone headsets provide high quality wireless VR, complete with full room scale tracking and controllers. They have a diverse range of fantastic experiences available and you can easily swap to a new experience whenever you like. It’s super easy to use these headsets and there’s something for everyone to enjoy!
Our main headset provides the absolute best experience you can have in VR, with full room scale movement. The view from this headset is projected onto our big projector screen and the audio through our 5.1 sound system. Everyone has a blast using and spectating players on this headset!
Can we do multiplayer experiences?
We have a some experiences where one player is in VR and works together with those who are not. We also have a select few with full multiplayer, but unfortunately the technology isn’t quite there yet for multiple VR players in most of our games! It’s something we’re actively working to bring to VRVE, but at the moment our solo experiences are simply better overall.
Should you wish to cancel your booking we will offer a rebooking or full refund if you notify us at least 1 week before your booking or 1 hour after making a booking.
If you notify us that you cannot attend your booking at least 2 days beforehand, we will offer a rebooking at any time on a week day within the next month (no weekends).
Our standard booking of one hour for up to 6 people for £60 can be booked directly online. We ask for a maximum of 4 under 18s and there must be at least one accompanying adult.
You must bring no more than the total attendees stated in your booking (typically max of 6). If you wish to bring more, please contact us at least 48 hours beforehand.
We will charge an extra £10 per person at the door for unexpected attendees and this may affect our ability to provide the best experience for your group.
