    Cool experience
    I went for my sons 16th, never done anything like this but for our first experience I really give it top marks! Considering money is always quite tight, I thought that it was a reasonable cost for the hour. You also get a nice little discount if you book for the 2nd hr. We went for the Arcade VR and kinda thought wen we got there we’d just choose one game for the hour. But it was nice to be able to choose from the selection at any point you like throughout the booking! The communication in the headset was clear so even though I kept on forgetting which button to use, I was always guided through what to do. Looking forward to going back even though parking near the Camden site might have you driving round in circles for a minute to find a spot.

    Not bad vr experience
    This place is ok. The games were good. We did a zombie shooting game then a halo type game. The room fitted all 3 of us and was ok. It's a lot smaller then the wembly vr place we went too. But the games were ok. The added hospital horror game was a bit naff. All in all a good place. Looks newish inside and equipment all worked fine. Only negative is it is about 15 min walk from Camden tube stn...as it rained we got a cab and it cost £10. When we finished it was a nice walk back. Would recommend.

    Killing zombies and orks like no tomorrow 😄
    This was our first time trying VR with my boyfriend, I bought this as a birthday gift for him and it was amazing! Great quality and great help from Robbie who assisted us throughout the game. The games were awesome and although my boyfriend was in the other room, it felt like he was right besides me this is how good the quality of the whole experience was. Thanks so much, it was great fun!

    Great family event!
    Totally enjoyed our Alice in Wonderland VR Escape Room. The venue was modern and clean and the staff were friendly (we had Dulcie and Kimmy help us). We came as a party of 6, myself, my husband, our 15yr old, our 10yr old, and two 70yr olds - the two 70yr olds struggled with the concept and the controls (even though there were only two buttons!), but the rest of us thoroughly enjoyed it and managed to escape with 10mins left (phew!). You aren't together in a room like some VR venues, instead you are in single rooms, which is weird but fine, the only downside was feeling like I spent most of the time in the corner of the room! 😂 Really enjoyable none the less, but maybe not for 70yr olds!

    Brilliant!!
    Went with my 9 year old son and we both loved it. We went for the Arcade package which has plenty of games for all levels and ages. We were both new to VR but the friendly and professional staff supported us throughout the experience. Very highly recommended.

    Didn’t know what to expect but wasn’t disappointed!
    Visited with my son, I’m 48, he’s a 23 year old gamer and it was intended more for his entertainment than mine. However, less than two minutes in and I was hooked! Really good selection of games and relatively easy to use, even for an old fart like me. Lots of different skill levels and experiences, from fixing droids in Star Wars to slicing fruit with samurai swords. We struggled a bit with the multiplayer games, but that was probably more down to my basic grasp of video games than anything else. Really enjoyable, lovely clean space, helpful team and a genuine workout - I was disappointed when our time was up! We’ll be back for sure and will certainly recommend.

    Surprisingly good for a non-gamer
    Surprisingly good for a non-gaming person like me. Went with my 8 year old son and we both had a lot of fun. The facilitator guided us throughout the experience (if we knew what we were doing he'd probably would have let us get on with it). Son going again this time with dad on his birthday next week.

    Mind Blowing Experience
    We took our 12 year old nephew to DNA VR for his first VR experience and it blew us all away. We opted for the free-roam time travel experience and had a fantastic time - the graphics were very immersive and well done, and the puzzle was a little difficult but the VR Master lent us a helping hand. Our nephew loved it. We are definitely coming back to try more!

    I booked this with my nine year old sister, we both thoroughly enjoyed the experience. We laughed and had a really good time. Staff were very helpful at all points during the experience it was our first time. I would recommend this for anyone wanting to try VR. We hope to visit again!

    Fun times
    Attended with my 7 and 12 year olds. They had the best time, and the staff there were amazing at helping my 7 year old in-game so that he got the most out of his visit. They spoke to him throughout his game to keep him progressing and enjoying himself. I wasnt playing, so i wish that there were more screens so that i could more easily see what they were doing in their games, but apart from that we had a fab time and the kids are begging to go back!

So, we dove into our first VR experience to celebrate a friend's birthday (we were in 2), and let me tell you, we were absolutely blown away! We picked the game "Medusa," and honestly, we were hooked from the get-go. The attention to detail, the realism, the sheer intrigue — it was all top-notch! We were so smitten that we decided to dive back in for another adventure just two days later.

Now, here's where the plot thickens. We hadn't quite finished the first game when we thought, "Why not call customer service and see what they suggest?" So, we did just that. They recommended the VR escape room puzzle, and let's just say, it was a whole different story. It felt like we'd stepped into a Nintendo game from the '90s! The reality aspect was a bit lacking, and the game itself felt kinda basic and repetitive. We even found ourselves wishing it would just end because time wasn't exactly flying by. Plus, we reached out for help multiple times, but unfortunately, crickets — not exactly the best addition to the experience.

Considering we'd booked the weekend and shelled out a bit more cash for this adventure, it's safe to say we're feeling a tad disappointed. We would've much preferred another premium experience, especially with so many other awesome games to choose from. It's a bit puzzling why customer service led us down this path. Honestly, if we'd started with this game, I'm not sure we'd even consider coming back.

When we expressed our disappointment, we didn't quite get the understanding or empathy we were hoping for. It would have been better if there was more clarity, especially since we'd talked about our first beautiful experience over the phone and during our second visit. Shouldn't customer service know the difference between the games and make suggestions based on that?

So yeah, not entirely sure if we'll be back anytime soon, which is a real shame because we genuinely had a blast the first time around. But spending over 60 pounds on what turned out to be the most boring experience ever? Ouch. That's definitely enough to make us think twice!!

Visited for my daughter's birthday - 3 young adults/teens and 2 parents. Never done any VR activities before. We spent a fun hour doing the Prison Break escape room with the youngsters leading the way and shepherding the olds. Staff were really lovely and very helpful. Would definitely come back another time. Would be useful if they got some decent signage outside.

A fabulous couple of hours spent in a VR escape room and in the VR arcade. We all had a great time. Facilities were clean and our VR masters, Joshua and Adam were friendly and helpful.

Went here for a day-date and honestly it was way better than I thought! I didn't know how a VR escape room would be but it was such good fun. We did the haunted one, Sanctum (i think), and it was really detailed, graphic and realistic. I've not done a VR game before so it took a few mins to get the hang of it but it was easy after that. I could communicate with my wife who was in another room and the trainer who was guiding us through. The only thing which was frustrating was the trainer would be talking to others players in other games through our game which was distracting at times but i think his mic was on by accident and it didnt happen more than once.

We completed the escape room game and received a free shoot out game to wrap up the session.

All in all, highly recommended and would definitely do it again with this company!

Played free-roam premium Pirate Plague Escape room experience, difficulty level medium. Took my 16 year old god-son, I'm 54. We had the best time. Adam our session handler was super helpful with initial instructions and a few hints along the way. We finished with 6 mins to spare so next time, and there will be a next time, we will attempt the hard option. Honestly, we came out on such a high, laughing and smiling all the way down to Camden Market for a well earned BBQ beef brisket and dirty fries lunch. The best fun! Highly recommend.
