While virtual reality has been hailed as an up-and-coming form of amusement for several decades now, truly immersive VR experience still seems to be a more or less rare bird in the global entertainment market. To be sure, the ever improving availability of headsets as consumer products has been playing a major role in getting more and more people familiar with the idea. However, either the quality and the functionality of these gadgets remain somewhat limited – with the virtual reality experiences they provide still falling short of the expectations raised by the hype – or they command higher prices and rely on powerful and even more expensive gaming PCs to support them.
Commercial-grade VR equipment used at virtual reality attractions such as arcades and gaming centers requires higher budget and more space, but the experience it offers is generally better. A well-designed VR attraction may feature gadgets that provide 3D motion tracking and visual, aural, and haptic (related to the sense of touch) feed along with beefy processing hardware, updated and secure software, and an extensive, diverse selection of virtual reality games. A typical home setup cannot match such an array of accessories, unless we are talking about some enthusiast extraordinaire – an exception that proves the rule.
Now add these powerful capabilities to the excitement and appeal of physical adventures escape rooms offer, and you will have a truly heady mix that both headset wearers and quick-thinking heads will like. This is why we at Boxroom just went ahead and created an awesome virtual reality experience for anyone who dares – escaping from one reality to another has never been this close!
