Upgrade your venue with a Virtual Reality Arena

Forget playing alone in a VR booth, with our industry standard VR arenas, multiple people can play together in a free-roam space without wires or cables.

Arena-Scale VR Benefits

Enhanced Experience

Enhanced Experience

Arena-scale VR allows for more natural walking in an open space that booth setups inhibit, due to the smaller play area and needing the headset to be tethered with cables.

Diverse VR Clientele

Diverse clientele

Free roam VR arenas appeal to a broad audience with something for nearly every age group. This makes it appealing for group events of all kinds -school trips, birthdays, corporate events, and more.

Increased VR Engagement

Increased Engagment

VR arenas enable users to play the same games together in the same space cooperatively or competitively, leading to longer play time retention than VR booth systems.

"The biggest appeal of our free roam arena lies in the ability for participants to move unrestricted, which significantly enhances the immersion and engagement in various experiences... With the promise of more content becoming available for free roam arenas, it's a fantastic opportunity to keep our customers engaged and excited about new experiences."

VR Arena ROI

A clear advantage over VR booths

Depending on their implementation, VR Arenas can yield a higher ROI than traditional VR Booths. These include:

  • Longer playtimes - VR arenas often have longer playtimes of 30-60 minutes compared to 10-15 minute sessions in booths

  • Increased replayability - Arena experiences often offer multiple levels, challenges, and game modes, encouraging repeat visits and increased revenue.

  • Higher throughput - Arenas can accommodate more players per hour than booths. This can significantly increase revenue potential, especially during peak hours.

Can playing in a VR arena cause motion sickness?

Chevron Icon - Videogame X Webflow Template

Motion sickness varies from person to person. Most VR Arena content is mapped to the player's physical space so there is less disconnect between physical movement and perceived motion from the headset, which helps to mitigate motion sickness.

How does Arena-scale VR differ from a home or booth setup?

Arena-scale VR offers a more immersive and physically expansive experience than home or the traditional booth scaled VR. It allows for full-body movement in a large area, often with several users, which isn't typically possible in homes or original room scale setups.

Accessibility varies. Some vendors offer equipment or experiences tailored for various disabilities. We can help with recommendations for getting the best software and equipment based on the clients needs.
