... More about the Virtual Reality Games ...

Individual VR experiences will include:
- Richie's Plank Experience: You're on a plank, 80 stories high. Knees shaky, palms sweaty. You have a choice. Do you walk or do you freeze?.
- TheBlu: Experience the wonder and majesty of the ocean through a series of habitats and come face to face with some of the most awe-inspiring species on the planet.
- Star Wars: Trials on Tatooine. Repair the Millennium Falcon, defend it from attack by Imperial Stormtroopers, and wield a LIGHTSABER.
- Pistol Whip: Inspired by God-mode action movies like John Wick and Equilibrium, Pistol Whip throws you gun-first into an explosive batch of hand-crafted action scenes each set to their own breakneck soundtrack.

Group games available include:
- Loco Dojo. Take turns to spin the wheel of a central board game and launch one of sixteen marvelously mad mini-games in which to compete with your rivals for Grand Sensei's favor. (Think Mario Party in VR)
- After The Fall. Set in an alternate 1980s LA, team up with friends and shoot your way through the frozen wasteland overrun by mutated hordes.
