Fun VR Experiences To Do With Friends
Are you looking for something a little bit different to do at the weekend? Activities like the cinema and ice skating are all well and good but if you want to bring a bit of excitement to your day, there’s nothing quite like a VR experience. Virtual reality experiences have come on leaps and bounds in the past couple of years and can transport you to a whole new realm.
So if you’re ready for an unforgettable adventure, here are some fun VR games, escape rooms, and experiences to try.
What is a virtual reality (VR) experience?
Before we look at what VR experiences are on offer, let’s just recap a little on how virtual reality works. Virtual reality is essentially a computer-generated universe allowing you to interact with environments in 3D. You put on a headset and become immersed in a virtual world with 360-degree views and encapsulating soundscapes.
Do you have to be an experienced gamer to try a VR experience?
Our VR escape rooms and games are suitable for all experience levels, so don’t worry if you’re new to the concept. We’ll brief you on all you need to know before you start your adventure.
How do virtual escape rooms work?
At Omescape, we’ve long since been pioneers in escape rooms. And VR technology has allowed us to open up new, immersive opportunities. You can still enjoy the puzzle-solving elements of a classic escape room — all with extra layers of interactivity. Don your VR headset and earphones and get ready to take on various virtual challenges to solve the mystery. You’ll be up against the clock and can manipulate objects and interact with different virtual elements.
Virtual escape rooms at Omescape
Are you and your friends hoping to unleash your inner Indiana Jones? Our Jumpers VR escape room takes you on a true adventure in search of an ancient artefact — explore, find clues, and watch out for traps! Perfect for families as well as groups of friends and colleagues, Jumpers is suitable for 2 to 8 players, and we recommend a minimum age of 14.
For stunning visuals on a mystical island, there’s always our Ascenders VR escape room. This experience combines powerful storytelling with puzzles and hidden clues that all hinge on teamwork.
Who doesn’t love a pirate adventure? Find your sea legs aboard an enchanted galleon in our Corsair’s Curse VR escape room. You and your group will have 40 minutes to explore Corsair’s ship, search for his treasure, and break his curse. The perfect blend of fantasy, mystery, and swashbuckling fun, this escape room is an exciting way to spend time with friends.
The best VR game experiences for groups
Virtual escape rooms are just one VR experience on offer — VR opens up a whole host of other activity opportunities, bringing new dynamics to physical games.
Here are a few of the VR games we have on offer at Omescape.
Become a ghostbuster
Bring a childhood dream to reality and become a real-life ghostbuster with Ghost Patrol. Find your way through the haunted manor and defeat your ghouls before your friend shoots theirs. Eerie yet thrilling, Ghost Patrol is a great VR experience for up to eight people — though it could also be a fun date for you and your partner.
Save a city
Perhaps the most immersive of all our VR experiences, Rotten Apple takes you to apocalyptic New York, where you and three friends have up to 30 minutes to stop the city being bombed and zombies taking over. Ultra-realistic graphics and haptics vests mean this is a VR group experience for only the bravest adventurers.
Survive a zombie takeover
In Death Squad, you can explore three different maps as you earn money by killing zombies then use your cash to buy new weapons. Unlock new areas as you go and see what happens when you roll the mystery dice.
Death Squad is part of our VEX mix-and-match VR experience — choose it as part of your 40-minute gameplay.
Cook up a storm
If you want to take a break from shooting zombies, why not try Kitchen Panic as part of your VEX experience? Great for groups of all ages (10+), this VR game lets you show off your cooking skills as you work as a team to create dishes within the time limit.
