The best VR experiences near you

Jun 14, 2021

In our opinion, VR is one of the greatest forms of entertainment there is. With this is mind, it would be rude of us to not share with you some of our fellow, VR lovers that are local in and around the Northamptonshire, Bedfordshire, and Cambridgeshire areas. One thing we love about the VR community is that, when you visit another VR Centre, it feels like a home away from home and just like you’re with colleagues!

So as a treat from us to you, here are some of our fellow VR entertainment neighbours, that all contribute gallantly to the surrounding VR community. It wouldn't be right to categorise us within this, that's for you to decide. All we shall say is, we’re very proud to be a part of the VR community and, as long as you’re involved in the VR world, we’re happy.

See how virtual reality is changing the world as we know it, with some fantastic venues.

Vertigo VR – Milton Keynes

Vertigo VR, based in Milton Keynes, certainly puts a spin on the usual VR experience (quite literally). As a cybersports hub, they are dedicated to providing their gamers with a variety of ways to experience VR, with the use of motion pods, HTC VIVE Arenas and 5D cinemas.

Find yourself in one of their VR Spheres, and see yourself soaring through skies or even diving the depths of the ocean in your own private motion pod. These pods even boast a 90% freefall simulation!

If not the spheres, then take on the VR ride of a lifetime with their upstanding, Oculus Rift powered, motion simulators. This VR gaming equipment is perfect if you're brave enough to experience the fear of intense trampolines or giant swings. We dare you...

Then take your cinema experience to the next level with their 5D cinema, which boasts immersive 3D movies. Feel the full effect of action with their moving platforms that keep you on your toes with water, wind, smoke, and much more.

If you're not quite ready for the full effects, fear not! Stay classic with their VR arena and experience all of your favourite VR games.

This is a unique VR experience you can't miss out on. Check out their website and Facebook page below.
