This little place was such a highlight of our trip to Barcelona. We stumbled upon it by complete accident, and went back twice! The two guys we met running the place were so friendly, spoke great English (unfortunately our Spanish skills aren't great!), and were so welcoming. The day we came back for the second time, they seemed genuinely pleased to see us, took a lot of time to walk through all the games with us and made sure we were happy with everything before we started playing. They've utilised the space brilliantly. Such a small venue, only 4 people can play at a time, but it works!!!! An absolute MUST if you're visiting Barcelona.

Kind Regards, Kirsty and Jack! X

It's a technology. In the past I tried some V.R. phone glasses, and at first I was skeptical, but you cannot compare.
There are a few games really addictive.
The staff is very nice

This place is so much fun with tons of games to choose from- and it's the only place of it's kind in Barcelona making it a super unique experience. I loved the google earth game where I felt transported to the Arizona desert, Brazil's Copacabana Beach, and a view from Paris's Eiffel Tower. For a lover of travel, this was a really unique experience for my first time in Virtual Reality. It feels so real and is so much fun- test your fear of heights on some of the games that take you high above cities like NYC and Hong Kong or just have fun playing some action games. The staff is super helpful and knowledgable speaking multiple languages and the place is located in the city center. I'll definitely be back and bring a ton of friends who would love it just as much as me! Thanks Virtual Playground!

I came here with a couple of friends and all of us had an amazing time! I've never played virtual reality games before, so I was really curious to see what this is all about. It was actually even wayyyy more exciting than expected and everything looks so real! It's really like you're in the game, no comparison to any other game I've ever played. All the games I played were so fun, a really great experience which is hard to describe if you haven't tried it yet. I will definitely come back!

Wow this was nothing like what I had experienced before! I felt like I was transported to another universe at the blink of an eye. The staff were very friendly and explained the games very well. The place was smack down in the middle of the city, very easy to find. I highly recommend it to anyone who likes new experiences!

Such a fun and comfortable space to explore VR! They've got alot to be proud of as innovators in venues like these. As an artist I really love Google Tiltbrush! The staff was super friendly and walked me through learning to use it. Will definitely be back!

I came in with a group of friends the other night and had a great time! I'd never tried VR before and I really didn't expect it to feel so real. I was genuinely frightened while doing the plank walk on top of a building! You should also try the archery game while you're there, that was a ton of fun. I'm definitely looking forward to going back!

I was in Barcelona recently and noticed Virtual Playground when I was walking around in the city center so I popped in. I was immediately attracted to the games they had as I had never experienced VR before. The staff were really friendly and helpful - they explained to me all the different games they had. I particularly enjoyed the plank game - it felt so real! Store is opened by a fellow Hong Konger like me!

You should definitely check this out - a good break from shopping and eating in Barcelona!
