Guests will enjoy a futuristic virtual reality experience featuring unique real-time motion capture technology, latest generation VR headset and 5 holodecks, each hosting up to six guests. Special pre-opening savings are available for those who book early.
LONE TREE, Colo.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Sandbox VR, the global leader in free-roam virtual reality experience with 25 locations open across the United States, Canada, Asia and Europe, will open the doors to its first Colorado location at Park Meadows Mall on September 9, 2022.
Sandbox VR’s socially immersive gaming experience combines full-body motion capture and high-quality haptics to provide unprecedented realism and complete immersion that’s not possible with home VR systems or other location-based VR venues, taking group Virtual Reality gameplay and competitive socializing to the next level.
Players experience heart-pounding, exhilarating, and unforgettably immersive gameplay when they fend off zombie hordes, enter a world of swashbuckling adventure, soar into the clouds in a space elevator or compete against one another in a futuristic combat arena – the true future of immersive entertainment.
The Park Meadows location will feature five private rooms for virtual reality gameplay called “holodecks” in which groups of up to six players have a truly shared experience, exploring virtual worlds and relying on each other to succeed in games specifically designed to be social experiences. Sandbox VR will add an entirely new entertainment experience in the Denver area.
“Opening the first Sandbox VR in Colorado is hugely exciting for us!” says Steven Zhao, CEO of Sandbox VR. “We’re thrilled to introduce a new type of immersive entertainment to the area. Park Meadows attracts visitors from all over the state and we’re proud to join this bustling community.”
“We love introducing new brands at Park Meadows and are proud to welcome Colorado’s first Virtual Reality of Sandbox VR,” says Pam Kelly, Senior General Manager of Park Meadows. “We are delighted to expand the offerings to our customers, and we know our community is excited for this new opening.”
Together with friends, family, or co-workers, players are equipped with a VR headset, a haptic vest, a backpack, and motion sensors on their wrists and ankles. This technology allows players to see and physically interact with one another while feeling like they are in the middle of an action movie, with the heightened emotions that come from not just watching a film, but from actually becoming the stars of the action.
