ANSWERS TO POPULAR QUESTIONS

Will my glasses fit in the VR headset?

Yes, most frames, big or small, will fit in the headset. Although, it is more comfortable to go without them.

Do I have to be a gamer to enjoy Virtual Reality?

Not in the least! VR goes beyond gaming. You can enjoy simple passive experiences, educational experiences, or explore your creative side with art and musical experiences.

Are there Multiplayer VR games?

Of Course!! There are many experiences that have both in house and online multiplayer. We also offer 3 person Multiplayer Escape Rooms!! Click here for more details.

Is there an age limit?

Although HTC doesn’t specify an age limit, it does warn against allowing young children to use the Vive. Which is why we recommend 10 years and up but, will go as low as 8 years old provided the gear fits on their head.

Can Virtual Reality make you feel nauseous?

VR motion sickness happens when your eyes tell your brain you’re moving around in a VR environment, but your body feels like it’s sitting in a chair or standing still. If you are prone to the problem, these conflicting inputs can cause you to feel nausea, dizziness, headaches, etc.

There are several ways to combat this though: 1. Take a rest – If you start to feel any symptoms of VR motion sickness take of the headset and rest a bit. 2. Stay cool – Keep a fan pointed at you or turn on the A/C. 3. Give it time – Start off slow and limit game time in VR to a few minutes and then build up from there. 4. Natural remedies – ginger in all its forms is a highly effective way to alleviate nausea.
