What is Virtual Reality?
Be ready for a life-changing experience! With the help of computer technology, VR-short for virtual reality is an immersive experience in which users are teleported into a 3D world. The senses of hearing, touch, and vision are stimulated in the interactive world. The users’ actions guide every single movement that is tracked- in which the graphics react accordingly.

Should I be nervous?
Not at all, VR is extremely immersive and fun!

How long is each VR experience?
It depends on the experience, but each should last between 5-10 minutes.
What are the most popular experiences?
Are you afraid of heights? Try walking across a plank that sits 480 feet high above the ground, then dare walk to the end in Richie’s Plank! Or, survive amid a zombie apocalypse in Arizona Sunshine. Why not unleash your creativity in 3D as the room is your canvas in Tilt Brush? There is no such thing as the most popular experience when it comes to VR- it solely depends on your personal interest.
