meetspaceVR, the UK’s first arena-scale, free-roam, multiplayer virtual reality [VR] entertainment centre is opening its next venue in Thatcham, Reading on Friday 17th June.
What’s at the centre?
Visitors will be able to experience the very best in virtual reality gaming, all under one roof. With a huge variety to choose from, meetspaceVR Reading will become the hub for virtual and augmented reality experiences in the Thames Valley.
- Free-Roam VR by Zero Latency VR – Brought to you by the global leaders in arena-scale, multiplayer, free-roam virtual reality, players can expect to enter the most immersive digital worlds in the industry, with up to 8 of their friends. Games range from a whimsical walking adventure that defies gravity to an exhilarating zombie apocalypse. Our centres are the only place where you can experience Zero Latency VR in the UK.
- VR Escape Rooms – A firm favourite amongst classic VR experiences where up to 4 people can enter virtual worlds to unlock challenges you just can’t experience in the real world. From exploring ancient Egypt to the world of Alice in Wonderland, our game options span generations, interests and backgrounds.
- VR Arcade – An immersive, retro virtual space where players can challenge their friends to a variety of classic arcade-style games.
- VR Quest Arena – An action-packed mini free-roam VR experience that’s less intense than Zero Latency, but just as fun! Perfect for younger players and families.
- Digital Play Wall – An exhilarating augmented reality experience that will have you working up a sweat, without even realising! This life-size games console is perfect for kids parties and families alike.

Are there other meetspaceVR venues in the UK?
meetspaceVR already has 3 successful VR centres across the UK in Nottingham, Birmingham and London, Wembley.
John Lilley, CEO of meetspaceVR says:
“We have been lucky over the past 2 years to have such amazing and supportive customers. It is testimony to our teams and our experiences that we have bounced back and started our growth story once again across the UK, starting in Reading. As home VR gaming grows in the UK, we are fully focussed on delivering social, free-roam experiences that are quite simply mind-blowing and cannot be achieved at home. Our experience really challenges the senses and makes for a very special experience. We cannot wait to hear the screams and whoops of delight ring out across the venue.”
