The Viri Experience will engage your senses through 50 minutes of immersive virtual reality. It involves 23 VR experience, including the Plank, the Horror Room, Archery, Racing, Flight Simulator and a Private Booth with 18 different games. You can spend your time however you like - try every game, or stick to what appeals most to you!
This experience provides one shared private booth between every two players in your group and spaces to roam. If you'd like to play multiplayer, you can add extra booths during the booking process.
12pm - 10pm: Monday - Thursday (unless prior appointment)
10am - 10pm: Friday - Sunday
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.
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).

Contact lenses are highly recommended, as glasses can be difficult to fit in the headset. If you're short sighted, VR is often fine without glasses.
