    Awesome VR experience although costly
    We had a great experience at Omescape London, the host was welcoming and very friendly explaining everything fully and helping with any tricky parts of the games. The equipment they have is really high-quality and makes the whole experience immersive and fun. I would rate higher but I believe the cost is prohibitive, 30 minutes isn't really enough time overall for the price. Compared to other activities, you can't really spend an afternoon with friends here in London or it would be hundreds of pounds. Great if you want to experience VR for the first time and do something different. Not great if you are looking to kill a few hours with friends at a reasonable price.
    Hi Scott! Thanks for the great review! Unfortunately due to the way our equipment and business operates, we are limited in how lengthy our experiences can be. We do however have a selection of longer VR escape room games, as well as an arcade collection. Regardless however, we thank you and hope to seeing you again soon

    Arizona Sunshine Nuclear Silo Mission
    Had a great time, staff were great and when the gear lagged/glitched at start gave us more time/discount without us asking for either. Game was really fun and easy to get immersed. Other than the slight technical problems at beginning was good fun. Great for a group of mates to do as it requires teamwork and communication would highly recommend
    Hi F5656UTsamb, Thanks very much for the review! We did resolved some small technical issue caused by the upgraded gears so they are a lot more stable now. Looking forward to host another mission for your team for a smooth experience.

    Arizona Sunshine Zombie Shooting VR X2
    My son (13 yo) and I visited Omescape today to take part in the Arizona Sunshine Zombie Shooting VR experience. Not obvious to find from the outside, but once you are there all was clear. Good facilities, clear instructions and good equipment and a nice host. The game itself was a lot of fun, more so if you are new to VR. Intense, but not too scary. Would definitely recommend.
    Hi oscareades, Thanks very much for the amazing feedback! Hope our recently upgraded true wireless system made a difference for your experience! See you again in the next mission!

    VR awesome, venue not great
    The VR experience itself was great, great intro and the free roam setup was brilliant. The games master was great too and every question was answered well, I felt really comfortable as a first timer using the equipment. The VR game room was spacious, clean and tidy. The venue was a different story, they had works in the building which is completely understandable but independently of that the toilets were really grim and the welcome area was just a mess. Overall I would definitely recommend the VR experience but be wary if you’re taking someone as a gift!
    Dear Zoe, Thank you for sharing your feedback on your recent free roam VR experience with us. We're thrilled to hear that you had a great time and enjoyed the immersive gameplay and our knowledgeable games master. Ensuring our guests feel comfortable, especially first-time users, is a top priority for us. We appreciate your understanding regarding the ongoing works in the building. However, we apologize for the less-than-ideal condition of the toilets and welcome area. We take your concerns seriously and will address them promptly to improve the overall experience for our guests. Thank you for recommending our VR experience despite the venue issues. We value your recommendation and will continue striving to deliver exciting and enjoyable experiences. We hope to welcome you back soon for another memorable visit. Best regards, Omescape Team

    A REALLY FUN AND IMMERSIVE EXPERIENCE!
    A really immersive and entertaining experience! There’s a lot of space to roam around especially when playing Huxley, and the gear we wore felt very comfortable and light. As some of us were also new to VR, we found the staff were so friendly and helpful throughout our session, which made our first experience even better. Definitely worth the time and money especially when going with groups of friends.
    Thank you for the kind words! Happy to hear you enjoyed playing Huxley!

    Great Time!
    We had a booking on June 16th for my nephews 12th birthday, and we had a fantastic time. The staff were friendly, and the briefing was very detailed, which helped massively. Game play and graphics were amazing; I couldn't believe how quick the experience went due to having such a good time. I will definitely be back.

    VR free roaming gaming at its best.
    We had amazing afternoon at Omniscape. Family of 4 with 2 teenagers (16 and 18yr) all of us loved it. We completed Huxley and then went on to kill Zombies in Arizona Sunshine. Fully immersive experience that you get sucked right into.

    Virtual Reality makes me hate my cousins in reality
    Absolutely blew my expectations. Very kind and patient host who greeted us. Well worth the money. Worked up a sweat and had mixture of competitive and team working games. The only problem is the competitive nature of the games would make you hate your family.
    Dear ridwxn, Thank you for sharing your amazing experience with us! We're thrilled to hear that we exceeded your expectations and that you had a fantastic time during your visit. We're glad you appreciated the warm welcome and the patience of our host.

    What a great experience
    WOW, what an experience. 7 of us, all of different ages, visited this week, and we loved it. Having done a zombie game like this before, i thought i knew what i was going to get, but this was even better and really felt like we were inside the game, struggling to step over gaps and even thought we were really going up and down in the lift :), and screaming when the zombies got close! We all loved it and was the highlight of our day out in London, and 100% we will be going back to try another game. Highly recommend!!!!
    Dear robertbE1742SF, Thank you for sharing your exhilarating experience with us! It's truly fantastic to hear that all seven of you, spanning different age groups, had such an amazing time during your visit. We're thrilled that our free roam VR experience exceeded your expectations and truly immersed you in the game world. The sensation of stepping over gaps and feeling like you're actually going up and down in the lift is exactly the kind of immersive adventure we aim to provide. It warms our hearts to know that we were the highlight of your day out in London! We can't wait to welcome you all back for another thrilling game and more unforgettable moments. Thank you for your enthusiastic recommendation, and we look forward to seeing you again soon! Best regards, Omescape Team

We arrived on time only to be made to wait for over half an hour as we were the first people of the day and nothing had been prepared. Once in and VR donned the experience itself lasted about 28 minutes ( not the 40 promised) and was somewhat underwhelming... There was lag happening and the whole thing had to be stopped at one point and we were left in " pause" for a good 5minutes. Having paid well over £200 for six people this just felt like too much for what is a mediocre experience...

The setup was great, and the use of the room/environment blended well with the game. The only reason I haven’t rated this 5/5 is purely subjective to my opinion. I think it’s great, and exactly what I expected really.
