Absolutely! We have had many people who thought they wouldn’t enjoy it or that it wasn’t their thing, who have been blown away by the experience. The one word everyone uses to describe the experience is IMMERSIVE! VR is not just for the ‘Gamers’ – it’s about “Experiences’. With a huge curated catalogue of VR experiences, games and VR Team Building options, there is something for everyone across even the most diverse corporate groups.
This is a relatively new concept in Perth so that depends on who you ask. VR-ARRIVAL is a place for anyone looking to escape the everyday and immerse themselves in a virtual world for a moment in time. Virtual reality is ideal for corporate bookings looking to experience immersive group activities, whether from a team building or bonding perspective.
If you have never experienced VR before you are in for a ride. If you have, but not at VR-ARRIVAL, you haven’t seen how good VR can be! We have large play areas, the HTC Vive Pro Equipment and blazing fast computers – this is VR as it should be experienced!
Our VR arcade is equipped with eight room-scale areas (~9 sqm) where you can play with/against colleagues or go solo, all showcasing VR at its absolute best! We have some great curated content across all genres, along with some that are ideally suited to corporate team building that focus on communication and teamwork.
Because the player’s view inside the headset is displayed onto the TVs, those who aren’t playing can still have fun watching their co-workers. Sometimes that is just as entertaining!
Glad you asked and you’ve started off well – this FAQ section provides an overview if you are not familiar with VR at VR-ARRIVAL. We have some suggested packages that might work for your group on out Corporate Website but we are more than happy to walk you through what might work best for your group based on the group numbers and what you are after from the session. We can definitely customise the session to work in best for your group!
The best way to start is to send through a booking enquiry. We’ll get in contact and help you out from there!
Prior to the session a VR-ARRIVAL staff member will guide you through the equipment and play area which will get you up to speed in no time. We’ll have plenty of staff on to help your group out throughout the session.
Absolutely – we will give you a short briefing when you arrive for general instructions and safety information. We’ll run you through how it all works with the play space area, the controllers and the content launcher. If there are any questions during your time, we’re there for you to help you along the way. Either way, we are sure you will be an expert in no time!
Currently VR-Arrival has 8 stations which means at any one time, there will be 8 people in the VR world at any one time. For larger groups, it is no problem to swap people in and out throughout the session. Depending on what you are after from the session, we can definitely suggest multi-player options that will suit the group.
The VR headsets can be adjusted for all but the biggest of glasses – our staff will help you adjust your headset when you start. It is recommended that if you can wear contacts please do so as you will find them more comfortable for a long session.
Simple answer is YES and hygiene is incredibly important to us. The Headsets cushioning is wiped down with Anti-Bacterial Wipes after each use along with the controllers. We also use single-use disposable face shields, plus hand sanitizer and wipes readily available.
Good question! The VR system has a built-in safety feature, called Chaperone, which is a virtual grid that appears in whatever experience/game you are in. The great thing about Chaperone is that it lets you know in your VR environment that you are close to the edge of your boundary. Staff members will also be on the lookout for those over-exuberant players that get a little too close to the edge of the play space.
This can definitely happen if using the cheaper VR systems out there such as the phone-based ones. However, this is much less likely to occur in the high-end VR systems we use. The majority of our VR applications are fine for most people with only a few specific games can possibly cause disorientation. If you’re worried about this, please let our friendly staff know and we will recommend which ones you might want to steer clear of. That said, if you don’t have a pre-existing condition or a vulnerability to motion sickness then you should be fine. If a specific game or level is causing you to feel a bit iffy, you have the ability to change it right then and there, or simply take the headset off for a few minutes to re-orientate. Additionally we can provide chairs to any players who may find experiencing VR from a seated position preferable.
You are more than welcome to film and video yourself and your co-workers (if they agree) within your VR Station and feel free to share them on your social media (we would love to be tagged in!). VR-ARRIVAL may wish to photograph or film you for promo purposes but we will always seek your permission first.
