Booking online is preferred because it guarantees the time that you want will be available, and allows us to allocate staff to accommodate your booking so you’re not waiting around. Game sessions start every 60 minutes.
It's highly advised that you check the booking calendar first if you're going to walk in, as we often have group bookings that take over the whole shop for a few hours.

Yes, you can still play. If you get motion sickness easily, it’s advisable to take some motion sickness tablets before playing, or some ginger or other herbal remedy. If you experience nausea in the first 5-10 minutes after trying VR, let our game master know and they will be able to provide a solution for you.
Yes, definitely. Families make up a significant portion of our customer base, and kids love playing virtual reality. Some of our experiences may not be suitable for kids, but we have tagged them and our game masters can advise you on the best games when you arrive. If you're just supervising kids, and not playing virtual reality, you may attend free of charge and don't need to buy yourself a ticket.

Viri is different because first and foremost we focus on immersive virtual reality experiences. This means that you feel the wind in your face on the plank, or the jolt as you nudge your mate in car racing.

We've also invested heavily into our fit-out and environment, so you'll enjoy chilling out with your friends.
Yes, we have water and soft drinks for purchase.
You’ll be transported to another world. Put simply, there is nothing quite like virtual reality.

That being said, VR is a lot of fun, and you’ll be telling your friends and family for days about it afterwards!
Yes, we run various games tournaments throughout the year that are announced through our Facebook page and email list. These include car racing tournaments, multiplayer tournaments and special discount days. Follow us on social media and subscribe to our Viri Insiders Club to be notified of these.
