The latest at Viral Entertainment

Nov 01, 2021

There's been no foots on the breaks as we've rolled from what has been an incredibly busy summer at Viral Entertainment, into autumnal madness! We've been inundated love and support from all avenues and we're grateful daily for the copious amounts of new people who are willing to experience VR. Here's a few updates from us that shine a light on why these past few months have been the best ever at Viral Entertainment in Corby. 

Team Viral Appreciation

As we have already touched on, the past few months have been the best ever for Viral Entertainment in Corby. Post pandemic, it's been an uphill climb to get our business back up to where it was and we can finally say that we're getting there! Granted, we can spend money on marketing, top-notch VR equipment and games. But at the heart of all of our success lies our wonderful team at Viral Entertainment and we couldn't achieve great results without them.

Collectively, our team ooze the skills and positivity needed for us to excel in our day-to-day running and customer service. But we have to extend a shoutout to some special individuals.

Spencer - he joined team Viral back in May and has done nothing but step up to the mark in every challenge given to him. He's flourished in his his job role and has now stepped up to weekend Team Leader. GO Spence!

And then there's Sunny. Sunny only joined the team one month ago and it is like she's been part of the team forever! Any target she's been given has been effortlessly smashed out the park. There's big things coming from Sunny, just you wait!

We're not just a business, we're a family. We couldn't succeed as we do without the help of these guys and we want to thank them for all they do.

A huge thanks to BBC Northampton

A HUGE thank you is in order for BBC Northampton, for their continued support to Viral Entertainment. After hearing about our business story in the Northants Telegraph, they reached out to us to help promote our business by inviting Garry on to BBC Northants radio station. Since this coverage, we have been inundated with new customers who have been desperate to try out the wonders of virtual reality.

We are overwhelmed by the support we have received from the local community, as well as those customers who have come from further afield. Thanks to the coverage that BBC Northants and the Northants Telegraph have provided, we have pushed through to succeed our best month yet in the business. 

To say we're grateful would be an understatement! 

360 Fest, The Corby Core Theatre

Being part of the VR industry, we understand how difficult it's been for the entertainment sector during the Covid-19 pandemic, with repercussions still seen now. With this in mind, we teamed up with our fellow Corby Core Theatre to bring people together again for some mind-blowing entertainment. We supported the organisation of 360 Fest - Corby's first virtual reality festival.

This festival was open to both schools and the general public, and provided the perfect opportunity for people to come and trial VR. 360 Fest also provided prosperous learning opportunities for children to learn about Theatre in VR.

A huge thanks to The Core at Corby Cube for hosting, along with other partnerships including Metro Boulot Dodo Leicester, Immersive Experiences and Arts Council England.

Corporate Events in full swing

Here at Viral, we're pleased to say we have also launched our fantastic corporate package. We're giving you the opportunity to hire out our corporate room for a productive working day and then top it off afterwards with some VR games. Our experiences make for great team building events!

Christmas Gift Vouchers

Okay... so we know we have only just got through Halloween. BUT... we are only 8 weeks away from Christmas! (Apologies for that beastly reminder). It would be rude of us to not mention a little thing called VR CHRISTMAS VOUCHERS, wouldn't it?

Whether you're an organised Christmas shopper or a last minute, run-around-on-Christmas-Eve shopper, you ought to know that gifting someone an experience is the best thing you can do as they'll remember it forever! 

Give someone the gift of VR this Christmas and keep your Christmas shopping stress-free! Pop in and speak to a member of our team about our gift vouchers today.

A couple of our favourites from this month:

Start your engines! Fantastic experience! Superb racing rigs that give a great feeling of being out on track. I'd highly recommend this to any racing fans. The tracks are laser scanned copies, which means they're pinpoint accurate. The staff are very friendly, helpful and happy to help with anything you need. I'll be going back on a regular basis!

Nikita L

Amazing! Me and my boyfriend had an hour session on the vr headsets and was so much fun the staff went the extra mile to make sure are needs were met the racing looks pretty cool and this place has pretty good vibes in general pretty good for the vr or just hanging out, will be coming back and with more pals, thank you to Nylissa for setting us up and taking care of us.

11/10 What a great time, i went with my two 10 year olds. I’m 37 but was made to feel like a kid again. We had a fantastic time and will definitely booking another session again this week. From the moment we walked in the door we were taking care of and they didn’t mind going the extra mile to give us the best experience. I would recommend to everyone no matter how old or young.
