The Origin Story

The Hero Hangout Virtual Reality Arcade is the brainchild of legendary Venture Capitalist Tim Draper. Through his many years of investing in up and coming technologies he noticed a trend; The newest technologies (Virtual Reality) tend to be very expensive for the consumers to purchase and the general public struggles to experience or get access to these technologies. The price and set up is really a strong barrier for the average consumer.

We wanted to change this.

With Tim’s support and guidance, the Hero Hangout was created and is run by Daniel Wiegand an entrepreneur and Draper University Alumni from the Spring 2016 Class. Our goal and vision is to enable the general public the ability to experience, learn, and get their hands dirty with these latest technologies through a state of the art Virtual Reality Arcade. We hope to delight our customers by providing them with the latest and greatest technologies at a low pay per minute cost.

We also pride ourselves in making this a seamless and easy experience for our customers. This will enable the general public the ability to try the latest and greatest in virtual reality technology, and hopefully inspire and enlighten people about the possibilities of these new technologies.

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

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.
