A new virtual reality studio is opening on Saturday, September 28 in the Beds R US furniture store, 14 Gascoigne St.
“We’ve currently got 20 different experiences.
“You can drift along a coral reef with turtles, experience European cities with Google Earth, or duck and dodge in a shooting game,” Beds R US owner Mike South said.
Other interactive games include a horror-themed shooter, Spiderman and Star Wars-themed games, a Paintball simulator and Beat Sabre, which is a coordination game set to music. Users wear a visual headset and use controllers in each hand to interact with the game. If they stand too close to the real world walls, a virtual barrier appears in the game to warn them of their proximity.
The Pure Kiwi Adventures virtual reality lounge will be open 10am to 6pm daily. However, people are welcome to call 0800 PURE KIWI (0800 787 351) to book evening sessions in the lounge.
