Title Selection:

Because everything about Virtual Reality is so new, our gaming and experience selection is ever growing and ever changing. Our selection will have several permanent titles as well as constant flow of new games to keep things current and exciting. We will be testing these new games at the beginning of every month and voting on which games we choose to keep in the coming month’s rotation. If you have a specific game in mind let us know when you are making your reservation.

Before You Play:

House Rules:

Be excellent to each other.

Party on dudes!

More specifically in multiplayer games with folks locally and around the world keep your language clean and treat players and their avatars with respect.

Items of Note:

Glasses

You may not need your glasses if you are nearsighted.

You can however wear glasses in the VR headset if the rims are not too big.

A good guidline is that if, without eyeware, you can clearly see your finger tips with your arm extended then you won't need to wear your corrective lenses.

Hairdo

Mind your hairdo! You won’t be able to fit into the headset if you are wearing your hair in a topknot or high placed bun.

While many VR experiences are gentle and laid-back, please keep in mind that many of the games are physically active.

When playing games it is common to get fatigued and work up a sweat as you play.

Liability Waiver:

Signing the liability waiver is necessary to play.

TL/DR Liability Waiver:

  1. I am legally able to make a binding agreement for myself or my child.
  2. I understand and agree that there are some inherent risks to playing VR.
  3. I understand these risks and agree to play despite them.
