DNA VR is ready to take you to Egypt, to the bottom of the ocean and, well, to Brown Street in town
We know, we know, there’s something very Black Mirror, and a little queasy about these VR headsets. If you have any family members who were around 12 last Christmas, you probably saw your 58-year-old aunt enjoying herself after a load of wine and turkey. “Oooh God, that’s weird isn’t it” they say as they race down a virtual roller coaster in your dining room with two play station remotes strapped to their wrists.
how the hell can you escape a room that doesn’t even exist in the first place?
The chance to “escape reality for a bit” seems very tempting right now though, and thanks to London-based biz DNA VR you can do it from early 2023.
Think escape rooms, “unimaginable” virtual worlds, and an experience that encompasses fantasy, music, horror, and fun. Basically, if you’ve ever imagined experiencing a zombie apocalypse after a few bevs, or want to laugh and point fingers at your friends as they throw their arms up at nothing, this is a new opener for you.
Bigger than your average VR Arcade paradise
DNA VR will have the capacity to host up to 16 virtual sessions at a time (about 19 people), and there are over 70 games to play both solo and as part of a larger group, so they can all exist in the same metaverse at the same time. time.
As London’s first and biggest virtual reality arcade, it has big boots to fill on Brown Street at New Years when it heads to The Big Smoke. Attention Flight Club.
Co-founder and CEO (he’s real, not virtual), Alexander Tsyurupa, said, “DNA VR’s state-of-the-art technology allows visitors to enjoy exciting gameplay. Whether you want to experience a fantasy adventure or solve mysteries, we have hundreds of games for all interests and passions. Think Disneyland, but for adults and people who love The Big Bang Theory.
Give me examples
Ok, we get it, “virtual reality” is a bit vague, the metaverse is a bit mind-boggling, and how the hell can you escape a room that doesn’t even exist in the first place?
Well, at DNA VR you can explore the depths of the ocean, walk through the pyramids, and explore new worlds including Skyfront VR, Elven Assassin, and Arizona Sunshine. Still no clearer?
Basically, if you’re playing with a group, up to 15 people can be hooked up to the VR pods, and the “free roam” arcade features long-running escape rooms and exploratory experiences, as well as games and landscapes interactive.
get angry before
If the idea of a virtual reality escape room or a walk around the pyramids in Egypt sounds like your idea of existential hell, maybe a drink or seven will give you the Dutch courage you need to put on a helmet and release your inhibitions.
The new location on Brown Street will be complemented by a “decorated and futuristic foyer” and a bar for some pre-dinner fun. The venue is between King Street and the Arndale, right in the center of Manchester, so you can fall into the hyper-real world of Market Street after all the experience.
