Escape The Norm With A VR Christmas Party
It’s almost time for the grand annual tradition of the end-of-year office party, but how do you ensure your colleagues have a good time in the midst of a pandemic?
You host a VR Christmas party by taking it online!
Not sure where to begin? Take a gander at a few ideas for a great virtual reality/online seasonal shindig below. We’ve also got a few ideas for VR Christmas parties that you and your team can enjoy together at Omescape London.
VR Games At Omescape
If your team doesn’t have any issues with meeting up together, head to Omescape London and see if they can manage to complete the missions assigned in our VR games. Your team members will receive state-of-the-art equipment such as HP Z VR Backpacks, headsets, and hand units that offer full immersion in the games.
Our games, such as Arizona Sunshine, Huxley, Huxley 2, and Mind Horror are designed for smaller teams of 2-4 players. Your team’s goal is to shoot enemy agents, smash obstacles, and solve clues and puzzles as they escape zombies, search for an infinite energy source, or try to locate a kidnapped child within an hour.
Deliver A Festive Feast
Social distancing is one of the keys to limiting the spread of the virus, so staying at home for a VR Christmas party online is something to consider. Of course, this doesn’t mean your team needs to miss out on a delicious festive feast.
Decide on a mouth-watering menu and have the starters, main course, dessert, drinks, and the ubiquitous party hats delivered to each team members’ home at the same time on the same day. Get everyone to meet up on Zoom (or your preferred video conferencing platform) so you can enjoy your Christmas party together. Now that we’ve got a basic idea of what to do about the food, let’s look at a few entertainment ideas.
Online Escape Rooms
For a VR Christmas party with an exciting difference, treat your team to an online escape room. You’ll find a selection of rooms that your team can play remotely at Omescape London.
Our online escape rooms are designed for 2-12 players. Each of the games places your team in a scenario in which they must uncover clues and solve puzzles in a race against time.
Our online escape rooms include Madness, Bomb, Zombie Apocalypse, Murder, Prison, Japan, and Aztec. Other thrilling escape rooms online will join the collection soon.
A Christmas Quiz
Pub quizzes are something of an institution in Britain, but as this next idea proves, you don’t need to be in a pub, and you don’t need to keep the questions to general knowledge. Assign your team into smaller teams and ask them seasonal trivia questions. Draw your questions from Christmas history, songs, traditions, and movies. Don’t forget to give prizes to the winners.
An end-of-year office party isn’t quite the same without karaoke. Take things up a notch by enjoying VR Christmas karaoke. You’ll find plenty of seasonal song videos with lyrics on YouTube. Get each willing team member to belt out their rendition of popular Christmas carols and songs over Zoom.
This year’s Christmas party doesn’t have to be boring; it’s just going to be different. With a little imagination, you can host an event that everyone will love!
