Young and old, everybody loves experiencing the wonders of the virtual reality with us.

Awesome! Took my parents here to show them what VR was like. They were definitely skeptical, but both ended up having a blast.

This place is BOMB! I was blown away by how realistic my senses felt after strapping on the headset, goggles, and held two controllers IN BOTH HANDS!!!!! DUAL WIELDING UP IN THIS

Droy W.

My first VR arcade experience, and impressed by the variety of games and experiences. Go here with a big group and reserve it for 2-3 hours. You won't realize how the time went by.

I get car sick easily so I was worried about the headsets, but didn't have a single issue! Thanks HH team for the game recommendations 10/10.

Where has this been all my life?? This is going to be one my most frequented places on a Thursday night. Excited to try even more games out :D

Man I thought VR was going to be lame and pixely, but this place was EPIC. There's tons of different games to explore and the equipment they have is seriously top notch.

I caught the bug. I am obsessed with BeatSaber. I'll see you guys again next week!

Tania B

My brother invited me to this place with his buddies and we had such an epic time. Only thing I wish we had scheduled more time! An hour was surprisingly fast.

I was a bit intimidated at first with how I was going to learn to use everything but the Hero Hangout team was super helpful and got me setup on beginner games to learn the ropes.
