Virtual reality escape rooms are places in which guests can escape the physical world to be transported to other realities to complete challenges in alternate dimensions or scary versions of ours.
We have the latest technologies in tracking, computing, and visual display to trick your brain into believing that the fantastic is real. VR enables the creation of unique interactive puzzles and other tricks that you just can’t do in a physical escape room such as flying through space, swimming through piranha infested waters, teleporting around a Space Station and shooting lasers and fireballs from your hand as your battle giant spiders.
Entermission also delivers incredible effects to enhance the immersion, like physical vibrations, wind and heat on your face and lifelike smells like smoke and gunpowder that will convince you it is real!
Entermission rooms deliver several advantages over ordinary VR rooms with tricked out Mission Module game seats inbuilt with motion effects so you feel physical vibrations enhancing your adventure to make it feel even more real. All you team play at the same time, in the same place instead of being separated and isolated in individual spaces so you can take cheeky photos of your family and friends while they're playing.
This allows for shared, social, spectacular moments! Entermission also delivers incredible effects to enhance the immersion, like wind and heat on your face and lifelike smells like smoke and gunpowder that will convince you it is real!

Yes you can participate, however, you may experience some motion sickness during the adventure although we have had many who do not feel it even though they have a history.
In our adventures using Hand Tracking rather than Controllers, you can fly and swim in virtual reality which many people love and find amazing, however for some people, this can cause disorientation. Moving slowly within the virtual reality world will help reduce the likelihood and if you do feel uncomfortable, you can lift up your virtual reality headset for a break. We can also teleport you in virtual reality so you don’t have to move.
You can also bring your own travel bands to wear or take travel tablets beforehand to help reduce the likelihood and alleviate symptoms.

This isn’t just for children. Its a great family activity to have FUN together, and we regularly get multiple generations (kids, parents and grandparents) enjoying the experience together.
