"Both the manager and Becky were so amazing and couldn't do enough for us to ensure me, my Mrs and my 9yr old had an awesome VR experience. They spent plenty of time explaining the VR equipment and we were immediately screaming and laughing moments later. So much so we stayed faaaaar longer than we originally intended and didn't mind the additional (totally optional) expense to try out all of the various tech they have on site. This is something we are already booking for the next birthday and have got the super reasonably priced 40 day pass (get it on the website) can't wait to return and I apologise for screaming whilst doing the plank 😉 This is a must for anyone experienced or new to VR thanks again all."

"Fantastic service and loads of fun! Went with my partner and my 9 year old son and we all had a blast!! If you're renting a pod then only one person can use the headset at a time but it is just as much fun to watch on the screen what they can see and see them fight invisible enemies or scream while walking the plank and you can swap anytime you want. Having never played VR before, I must say that I was absolutely stunned at how fantastic it is! Plus the staff there are so friendly, helpful and they seem so passionate about vr themselves that they make the whole experience even more fun. 10/10 would recommend, great afternoon out for the whole family 😊 will definitely be buying a pass!"
