The Viri Experience will engage your senses through 50 minutes of immersive virtual reality. It involves 25+ VR experience, including the Plank, Racing, Flight Simulator, Puzzle games, Rhythm games, Shooters and more! You can spend your time however you like - try every game, or stick to what appeals most to you!
This experience now provides one private booth for every player in the group, in addition to access to the shared stations.
Our regular hours are 3pm-9pm Weekdays, 10am-10pm Saturdays and 10am-6pm Sundays.
As our sessions run for 50 minutes (not including the briefing) we will close early if there are no bookings for the final hour, so if you're looking to come in for our final session of the day make sure to book in ahead of time as it is bookings only.
Holiday hours may vary
Our minimum age is 8, as younger children tend to be overwhelmed by VR, and they are often too small to operate some of the games, or fit the headset. Additionally, if a child struggles with their lefts and rights and/or reading comprehension, they may require some help from a guardian to navigate the games and menus.
Viri is at 555 Flinders Lane, Melbourne CBD. We are a four minute walk from Southern Cross Station on the corner of Flinders Lane and Downie Street. (Close to Spencer Street).
If you are diagnosed with epilepsy, you should not play virtual reality as some of the animations may trigger symptoms.
If you have a diagnosed heart condition, we suggest you obtain medical advice before playing virtual reality as some games can be strenuous.
We recommend that pregnant women and elderly customers take care when playing virtual reality as you may need to move around. Our staff will be able to recommend suitable games.
Booking is strongly recommended. Viri opens early/closes late if there are no bookings, and if we are open we cannot necessarily guarantee space for walk-ins. Game sessions start every hour on the hour.
Contact lenses are highly recommended, as glasses can be difficult to fit in the headset. Glasses with smaller frames can fit inside our headsets so feel free to bring them just incase. If you're short sighted, VR is often fine without glasses.
Very few of our games cause motion sickness in players. From experience, if you are worried about become nauseous, we recommend steering clear of the racing and the flight simulator.
