Me and my mates absolutely loved this, I'd thoroughly recommend it. Good choice of games which meant we could compete against each other and play as one team. Really helpful friendly staff. You'll want to stay longer!

I went there on Saturday morning by myself to try VR, it was an amazing experience, I could try several games which made my morning really interesting and fun. 100% recommended. The staff were really helpful and asking about preferences in the game.
