FAQ

Basics

Voxel Virtual Reality Parlour is a lounge and arcade that you and your friends can come to to share in the experience of virtual reality. We have six VR bays where individuals can choose which VR experiences to try out and your party can view you and monitors see what you’re doing and how you’re interacting with your environment. We also provide snacks, refreshments, and other amenities so you can relax, socialize with your party, and enjoy your stay. You can also arrange private 3-bay events for 6 or more people or even arrange for large special events with 40+ guests.

This is an experience for EVERYONE! While we do restrict the use of our VR equipment to those 10 years of age or above, everyone is welcome to enjoy the lounge. Although, we do ask that anyone younger than 14 years of age have their guardian present. (Guardians should be sure to complete this online waiver form for their minors before attending). We have all types of experiences for all types of people. If you’re a gamer, you’ll love VR. If you’re not a gamer, you’ll ALSO love VR. Please note, though, that some experiences do contain some violence or inappropriate language. While we can make sure you have full control of your experiences, guests in nearby bays might choose those more mature experiences.

This is a moment where you’ll just have to trust us.  Nothing we can say or show you on this screen will come close to doing justice to what you’ll feel when you enter VR.

There are all types of experiences. There are classic games, such as shooting bows and arrows, arcade style games, or first person shooters. There are ultra realistic experiences such as floating through space, diving deep into the ocean, or scaling mountains with breathtaking views. There are educational experiences such as exploring the human body or watching the orbits of planets, stars, and galaxies. There are puzzle rooms and strategy games…the list goes on and on. If you can imagine it, there’s a good chance there’s an experience here for you.

But like we said, you’re just going to have to try it for yourself.  Trust us.  It’ll be worth it.

For first time users, we recommend you plan on an introductory experience of at least ~20 minutes. Since each bay has one VR headset and accessories to share, we recommend that you reserve an hour for 2-3 people if reserving just one bay. You’ll find that it’s fun to both be in VR for yourself, but also to watch your friends try out new experiences for themselves. For example, a one-hour reservation could accommodate 3 people, but if you had 4 or 5 people, we’d recommend getting two bays. With 6 or more people we suggest reserving a private room with 3 bays at the special rate of $240 for up to 6 guests or $300 for up to 12 guests (The 2-hr private reservation has been our most popular option).

 
  • We recommend arriving ~10-15 minutes before your reservation to check in and get acclimated
  • If your guests have the option between contacts and glasses, we recommend wearing contacts for comfort while using the headsets, since not all glasses will fit in the headsets.
  • To save a few moments at check-in, you can complete this online waiver form .
  • If you’re under 18 years of age or are the legal guardian of someone under 18 who will be attending without you, please complete this online waiver form
  • No other preparation or experience is necessary, as our attendants will walk you through a basic tutorial of how everything works and what to expect.

Technically, no, you don’t need to make a reservation. However, if you want to guarantee yourself a time slot it’s a good idea, especially on the weekend. 

Cancellations are accepted up to 48 hours in advance. If reservations are not cancelled with appropriate notice, the card used to hold the reservation will be charged for the full amount of your reservation.

At the front door (the one to the taller building, across from the brewery, next to the big pink “X”) there is a call box to the left of the door.  Call up to us from there and we’ll be able to buzz the door open from there.  As it turns out, just finding us is part of the fun. Here are some detailed, albeit strangely obscure directions: 

PARK ON THE NORTHEAST SIDE OF THE BUILDING (other doors lock before closing time) under the water tower and near the big pink “X”. From there you’ll enter the larger building, pass the large “LOL” sign, go up the stairs, and turn RIGHT down the hallway. The numbers do NOT go in order. We know, it’s craziness. You’ll find us at the end of the long hallway after it turns left. Just follow the sound of music. It’ll be worth the hunt.

Events & Mobile

For simpler smaller events (12 or fewer guests) you can make a “Private Reservation” online through our scheduling system.  You can also reserve birthday packages through our website.  For larger groups, catering, or any other needs, just email us and one of our event coordinators will be in touch with you.

For quotes and details on Special Events or Mobile VR Events, email us at hello@voxelvrp.com. Our in-house event space can comfortably accommodate up to ~40 guests. You can bring your group to us for a Special Event (e.g. large corporate outings, open houses, large group entertainment, etc.), or we can bring the awe to your off-site location with our Mobile VR. Big or small, we can make your custom events stand out.
