The new establishment in the capital of the Netherlands combines everything that made The VR Room realise its rapid grow: a substantial offering of experiences, exclusive licenses, competitive VR Lasergaming, Assassin’s Creed VR Escape Rooms in collaboration with Ubisoft and Full Motion Racing Simulators.
Virtual Reality Lasergaming
Exclusively at (partners of) The VR Room you’re able to experience a completely new way of lasertag. VR Lasergaming enables three players to go head-to-head against another team of three as they are armed with a VR headset, a sturdy weapon and a special vest that lets players feel real impact when they get shot. In addition players can cover up behind a physical tower that’s a replica of the virtual model to amplify the interaction with the ‘real’ world.
VR Escape Rooms
In March 2018 The VR Room introduced their VR Escape Rooms in collaboration with Ubisoft. In the game players enter the universe of the world renowned Assassin’s Creed franchise, in which they get to choose between two adventures. Both offer amazing virtual worlds in which two to four players have to escape by solving puzzles that would be far too dangerous in real life.
“The usage of Virtual Reality continues to rise and with that also the demand for quality. Our collaboration with Ubisoft and 3vs3 VR Lasergaming shows we continue to innovate. We want people to experience VR in a way that would be impossible in their own homes” -Wouter van den Bijgaart, owner of The VR Room
