The emergence of Virtual Reality technology has been evident in today’s generation. Virtual Reality (VR) is the creation of a stimulating environment with advanced computer technologies. It allows the user to experience an “inside” perspective and interact with a three-dimensional environment.
In London, several enterprises hold virtual reality events and experiences such as workshops, seminars, arcades, and symposium to supply significant information about the creative possibilities and innovations of virtual reality in the future. Listed below are some of the well-known virtual reality ventures and experiences in London for interested individuals.
1) DNA VR
The first virtual reality arcade in Islington, London, DNA VR, is a unique technology attraction that offers interactive experiences for enthusiastic individuals. They provide a single player and multiplayer titles from horror to 3D illustration games including Beat Saber VR, LightBlade VR, Cloudlands: VR Minigolf, and Hotel Transylvania Popstic for at most ten people. DNA VR also features a VR Escape Room such as Tales of Escape – the Mine, and Alice in Wonderland stories: VR where players have an hour to escape by solving puzzles with a team of six players.
The prices in DNA VR differ depending on the chosen virtual reality experience – group room, single player/multiplayer, or VR escape rooms. However, the common complaints of users are motion sickness and poor tracking.

The premier Virtual Reality Café & Bar in Croydon High Street provides an incredible user experience with a VR headset and handheld controllers. Limitless VR states that individuals from ages ten and above can experience the Virtual Reality given that they measure at least 4 ft. They offer a variety of animating environments with optical illusions and eccentric designs including the combat gameplay and sci-fi environment of RawData, and the Arizona Sunshine where users can encounter zombie apocalypse while handling weapons in a real-life atmosphere.
Limitless VR also offers a group experience for at least four players with team building and simulation environments like Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes where one user stays on an empty room with a ticking explosive, and his or her accomplices have the manual to diffuse it without seeing the bomb.
To book a session in Limitless VR, users should select a time slot and the number of players (max of four) to share a VR headset, and pay using a credit or debit card. There is also a waiver liability form that users need to fill up before visiting the VR Café and using VR.
