Viral Roam is a go!

This is massive news from us! Free Roam delivers ultimate VR freedom. Giving you and your mates the space to interact together in the wonderful world of VR. 

High-five together, play laser tag, and fight zombies in this fully immersive technology. We've created room here at ViRAL for untethered Free Roam for unlimited fun!

Free Roam headsets allow us the freedom to deliver VR to the comfort of your home to experience with your loved ones.

"Congratulations to you and your team on your fantastic business, there have been so many challenges you had faced and overcome! Here is to many more successful and prosperous years for your business. See you soon."

Happy ViRAL customer Vicki

ViRAL Entertainment turns 2!

On November 4th, we celebrated two years of craziness! Who thought when we opened on the 4th November 2019 that we'd be fighting our way through a global pandemic.

It's been tough at times, but as husband and wife and business partners, we've pulled each other through. We've had good days and bad days, but we are still here to tell the tale! 

Since opening, we've always been looking for new ways to enhance our VR experiences for all. We're constantly working on exciting new developments, including new systems, equipment, games and event packages!

We couldn't do it without the amazing team behind us.

It feels so good to be doing what we love everyday, and we can’t wait to welcome more of you to the world of VR. Here's to a lot more fab years and our ever growing team at Viral Entertainment in Corby. 

Party Success!

Talking of event packages... we have parties going off left, right and centre!

What a fantastic night we had for Aztec U14's football team this month.

This was long awaited as they should have had it in July when Boris extended lockdown!

It was clear to see that they had an amazing time. They must hold the record for the most face planters in one night!

"Great night the lads loved it. Thanks very much".

Thank you for choosing to have your party here at ViRAL! 

VR – the future of technology!

King of Social Media, Mark Zuckerberg has hit the news with his innovative decision to rename his company to Meta. This change supports our vision and passion towards VR.

Here at Viral Entertainment, we give our customers the freedom to enter an already existing metaverse every day. We provide the opportunity to travel, play, learn, create and even exercise in never-before-seen virtual worlds.

People talk about the potential the metaverse has in helping to unveil new creative, social and even economic opportunities! But we’re here to say that this is happening right now in our VR Centre.

Ranking #1

We’re thrilled to announce that we’re still holding our position as Northamptonshire’s #1 Entertainment venue on TripAdvisor. Not only this, but as always, we would like to extend a huge thanks to everyone who has taken the time to leave us a review after their visit with us at ViRAL, it really does make all the difference.

A few of our favourites from this month:

Joe

Went in to book a date later in the month on the racing rigs. Staff/owners were really really welcoming. They offered us a little shot on the racing rugs for free, took them up on their offer realised it was amazing. The staff/and owners really make the time for you and are good for a conversation. They'll look after you. Nice place for a couple of beers as well. If you're unsure, just go, chances are, you'll be thankful you did!!

Carola

We had a great time! Great atmosphere, friendly staff, fantastic experience! I was a virtual reality skeptic, thinking it would make me sick and “not my thing”- I’m so glad I changed my mind! It was awesome!

Fiona

Took my son who has non verbal autism for a quick visit to see how he would get on. The lady and man who run it were absolutely amazing . They had so much patience and understanding with him that after 15 minutes my son was wearing the equipment and having the best time. Would 100 percent recommend anyone with children with additional needs that's enjoy gaming to give this place a go .I've already booked to take him back x
