    What to Expect
    Visit: VR World NYC, 4 E 34th Street, New York City, NY 10016-4333

    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 which the computer is the gatekeeper of. The users’ eyes are the guide and every single movement is tracked and the graphics react accordingly.

    Users will wear either an Oculus, HTC Vive, or Samsung Gear headset. Each has a set of different experiences and teleports the user into an artificial world where the limitations are endless. Some experiences are completely hands-free and some require use of controls similar to electronic games.

    The largest virtual reality experience center is located in North America and the Western Hemisphere, right here in New York City. It features the finest and most diverse virtual reality experiences that can be used in a public setting.  Each guide is truly passionate about what they do, which makes for an easy and highly entertaining virtual reality experience.

    VRWorld is what a well executed VR Themepark should be, but due to the limitations of current gen VR hardware it is no more than a test bed of prototypes. Your wait time not only depends on the number of people in the queue but how complaint the hardware is during that run. Your

    All the negative reviews are true- long waits, rude and undertrained staff. Basically it’s just a bunch of games on flat screens and a few random documentaries and films. They don’t even truly exploit the technology. You spend more time waiting and learning to use each game than

    For a family of 4 for 2 hours $191. We should have just gone to Best Buy and purchased an Oculus Go. Boring inexpensive games - most of which are free. We were done long before 2 hours.
