We’re all familiar with the tried and tested escape room experience – a series of puzzles and games stand before you and your team’s victory. However, with significant leaps in VR technology, imagine how well a virtual world could lend itself to your escape room experience…
Rather than merely experiencing the escape room, you are truly living it as you hear and see the new world you inhabit.
At Meetspace VR, this is how your adventure begins at our virtual reality escape rooms. Dramatic yes, but you and your squad are guaranteed to have a phenomenal experience as you puzzle, jump and balance your way over beams and ledges to complete your escape room mission!
That’s the beauty of virtual reality escape rooms – you can simulate being in a variety of life-threatening situations without being exposed to any real danger.
If you are tired of the physical escape room experience and are looking for something that’s more high intensity, then our virtual escape rooms are the solution!
Let’s see how VR escape room gaming is redefining the industry. But first, let’s start at the beginning and explore what exactly is virtual reality?
Virtual Reality – What Does It Have in Store for You?
Put simply, virtual reality is about creating and designing an experience that can resemble the actual world, but more typically allows you to experience fantasy settings. It allows players to engage and interact in a virtual simulated world, using a range of inputs in different settings.
It all boils down to placing the players in the spotlight, right in the middle of an action-packed adventure, to live vicariously through their virtual personas as they save the world, solve ancient mysteries or simply escape with their lives.
Why Virtual Reality Goes Hand in Hand with Escape Rooms
Escape rooms have been providing participants with thrills for quite some time. With the advent of virtual reality, the whole experience suddenly had an opening to be bigger, better and more advanced!
The amalgamation of VR with the concept of an escape room feeds off the three major components explained below:
For a truly exhilarating escape room experience, it’s important to create a world that fits around its participants in a way that makes them feel connected to it, whilst at the same time living inside of it.
It allows players to sport a dynamic persona instead of being a mere observer on the outside. That’s the essence of the escape room, as you strive to create a fictitious world for participants to immerse themselves in.
This characteristic alone is what made the concept of escape rooms a big hit in the first place, as participants simulate a mythical world of their own to find a way out from as the clock ticks.
This makes ‘immersion’ the star feature of virtual reality escape rooms as players create a substitute reality to interact with.
Variety of Experiences
From Alice in Wonderland to Cyberpunk there are a plethora of VR escape games and experiences to indulge in. All the ensuing chaos with state of the art effects can now be achieved simply from our venues in Birmingham, Nottingham and London.
With our new and improved multiplayer VR escape room experiences you can change the course of history at Chernobyl or survive a desert island as you battle the clock to win. While all the original elements of an escape room are retained, the addition of virtuality adds a whole new dimension in terms of effects, immersion and overall indulgent experience.
With VR escape room games, participants will be able to bring elements to life, albeit virtually, in a highly engaging and exciting way, thanks to the expansive structure of complex inputs that make the experience what it is.
Eliminates the Challenges of a Physical Escape Room
Prop damage is perhaps the biggest issue in a traditional escape room which, needless to say, is not a problem with a VR experience. In a traditional escape room, participants being as engaged as they are, may end up incurring damage to certain props as they try to find their way through the room while breaking things unintentionally.
In the midst of the challenge, just by the sheer adrenaline rush, participants can damage decorative props by mistake. This is not an issue that players will face in a VR escape room environment as there are no props – it’s just you and your squad against the highly interactive digital world!
Over time a traditional escape room can become outdated and the various props can suffer wear and tear, degrading the quality. As the virtual reality escape room adventure is essentially a computer program, there’s no question of updating props and the experience is as sleek and stylish as the first time.
With new experiences being released all the time, there’s no downtime to update the escape room either, instead simply installing the new software.
All these elements work together to set virtual reality gaming experience a league above its traditional alternatives. Check out our range of VR games to get your blood pumping for the experience!
