What is VR?
Virtual Reality, also known as “VR”, is the use of high-end computer technology to create simulated environments. Unlike traditional user interfaces, VR places the user inside the experience. Instead of viewing a screen in front of you, users are immersed an able to interact with the 3D game and experience they are in.

When should I arrive for my booking?
We ask that you arrive 10 minutes in advance of your allotted time slot. This allows us the time to get you geared up and ready for the experience of a lifetime, with an introduction and review of the setup process. For any customers arriving late, we will do our best to add on time for you, but we can’t make any promises!

Is VR good for sim racing?
In the many years the entertainment sector has been thriving, you may have come across the classic monitor-based simulator, for your wild racing experience. Now we're not one's to put a damper on such an experience, but we will say that VR certainly takes racing simulation to the next level.
Transporting your racing skills into a virtual world makes for an unforgettable experience and one that really does put your skills to the test. With realism enhanced in all aspects of motion and senses, the challenge that comes with being a good racer on VR is much more difficult.
It can also be said that people perform better in the VR racing simulation. The full 5D depth that our VR racing sims offer, allows for a more suspense and engaging environment - one where your driving and reaction times are faster.
