For more information please go to our What To Expect page

 

How Long Does The Experience Go For?

The duration of our games and experiences all vary from 15 minutes to 60 minutes. Your game and experience may last up to one hour, which includes game time, check-in, photo opportunity, debrief session, putting the gear on and off. Please note that as most of our sessions require bookings, especially during busy times, if you are late or one of your friends or team members causes delays, it may eat into your game time. Therefore please ensure that you arrive at least 15 minutes before your session time so that you have enough time to check in, use the bathroom if necessary and put your personal belongings in storage so that you, your friends and team members get the most of your experience.

 

What is a VR Escape Room?

A Virtual Reality (VR) Escape Room is where you and your team members of 2-4 people are ‘locked” in a virtual room where you need work together to find the clues, and/or solve the puzzles to escape the virtual room, within a given time limit. It is completely safe and is a very fun and challenging experience. You are not actually locked in anywhere and are able to walk and move around freely in the designated game space.

 

What is Free Roam VR?

Free Roam VR allows players to walk around inside a virtual world, just as you would in the real world. Older VR systems require users to be attached to a cable, or stay in a fixed spot without the flexibility of being able to walk around. All of VR Kingdoms escape room experiences are Free Roam and most are also wireless meaning you just wear the VR headset and use its accessories. One of our escape rooms, and all of our shooting games require players to wear the VR headset and a backpack that has a laptop inside.

 

How many people can play at once?

Our experiences are generally for 2-4 players. If you want to book an individual ticket, let us know and one of our team can play with you if there are no other players booked for that session.

If you are a group larger than 4, as we have multiple experiences and arenas, we can accommodate a total of up to 4 people per session and up to 44 people per hour, depending on the game or experience. 

 

Do I need to have experience with VR or video games?

No, you do not need to have any experience with VR or video games. Our team will give you a briefing before you start the experience and they will be there the whole time if you need anything.

What are the age requirements?

For the Multiplayer VR Escape Rooms and Shooting games the minimum age is 12 years old. For our single player games the minimum age is 6 years old. Players under 18 years old must have a parent or guardian sign the waiver form for them. Without a completed waiver form, anyone under 18 will not be able to participate in any games and experiences.

 

What are the minimum height requirements?

We do not have a minimum height requirement. All players should be capable of carrying the equipment. For our shooting games and one of our escape rooms, players will need to wear a backpack that has a laptop in it. 

Can I wear my prescription glasses?

As all glasses are different shapes and sizes, it is best not to wear your glasses so that they do not get damaged or damage the headset. We recommend that you wear contact lenses if you have them. For players without glasses or contact lenses, all of our headsets have individual adjustment lenses for each eye so that players can adjust the focus of the headsets but this will not completely compensate for glasses or contact lenses if you need them.

 

Can I wear my hearing aid?

During your game or experience, you will be wearing either external headphones or headphones that are on the VR headset. If you have an in-ear hearing aid, this might be ok but if you have an external hearing aid, this may not fit under the headphones.

Who can or can’t play?

Whilst we try to accommodate everyone, free roam VR is not suitable for everyone.

For safety reasons anyone with the following medical conditions will not be able to play so as to ensure their own safety and the safety of others:

  • People with reduced mobility, or that are physically handicapped (You need to be able to walk around unassisted for up to 1 hour, while wearing a headset and for some experiences, wearing a backpack. You will also need full use of both hands and legs)

Is VR dangerous?

No, VR is very safe. As long as you listen to instructions and obey the rules of participating in the game or experience, it is safe.

 

Is there any chance of dizziness or motion sickness?

Some of the other technology and operators out there do not have the latest technology and/or equipment. The high latency or frame rate and/or poor or old technology systems is what causes dizziness or motion sickness. All of VR Kingdoms’ technology and equipment is the latest and of very high quality, which result in a zero to very low latency. Our equipment is also of the highest quality. Most of our VR escape rooms use the HTC Vive with wireless adaptors. One other escape room and all our shooting games use the HP Z VR Backpack so the likelihood that motion sickness occurs is rather low. However if you are sensitive to motive sickness please be aware that there may be some discomfort. Our game master is always there to help you and answer any of your questions.

What I do not feel comfortable during the experience?

If you do not feel comfortable or want to stop the experience for whatever reason, you just need to tell your game master and they will pull you out of the game.

 

How much do tickets cost?

Tickets for our VR experience can vary but generally is around $77 for a 45 minute game time and total of 60 minute experience. The additional time above the game time is for briefing, donning of equipment, photos and debrief after the game.
