"We booked a party for 8 children on 28th August for our 2 boys birthdays. Planet VR staff were amazing. They really went above and beyond to meet our needs. From my first contact asking questions they replied straight away. They accommodated all the children at the party and even the children too young to join in. The layout and decor was absolutely 💯. The kids loved every minute that they didn't want to leave. We will definitely return to the venue. Thank you for making their party special. Highly recommend"👍🏿👍🏽👍🏼

"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!"

"My friend wasn’t feeling too good so we decided to go out after work. We first went to a pub grill which was not making us feel too thrilled, and I brought up Planet VR as I had always wanted to go there with a friend. We both decided to go and it was such a pleasant experience! The staff were lovely and approachable, and the best thing is that you don’t HAVE to play the VR headsets, you could just have a few drinks and play some board games (I personally recommend Snakes and Bladdered). The drinks were fantastic, the atmosphere was wonderful, the whole experience just made our evening! We’ll definitely be returning in the near future and actually play some of the games, but for a first time visit everything was wonderful!"👾🕹

"Visited with my partner &9year old godson this weekend and he loved it 💙 it’s really limited at the moment with current circumstances with things to do to keep the kids entertained but this certainly hit the spot! Staff were great really helpful showed us what to do & within 10 minutes he was in the swing of things, already asking when we are going again, best money I’ve spent 😁!"
