Virtual Reality Frequently Asked Questions

What is virtual reality?

Virtual reality or virtual realities (VR), which can be referred to as immersive multimedia or computer-simulated reality, replicates an environment that simulates a physical presence in places in the real world or an imagined world, allowing the user to interact in that world.

What games do you have for your virtual reality system?

We have around 70 games for our Virtual Reality system now. Anything from fighting zombies, to painting in 3D, playing golf, Escape Room games, etc. Come check the list of our applications in person.

How do I play the VR games at LIFT LOCK ESCAPE?

Users will wear an HTC Vive headset which 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.

How many people can play at a time?

Each station can accommodate one person operating a VR system at a time. Having said that, you will be able to watch what your friend is playing on a screen. Also, you can split your playing time with a friend.

Can I play a game with the person in the station next to me?

Definitely.  Certain games will enable you to join your friends in the game.  You will be able to communicate with them through the built-in headset microphone, and see your friends’ actions performed by their avatars!

Am I going to walk into the walls?

Highly unlikely.  Thanks, mostly, to HTC’s incredible Chaperone system, you will have a very good sense of where you are located in real space while playing the VR content.  Should you approach any walls, other people, chairs, etc. in the VR station, the Chaperone system will project a blue hologram of that obstacle inside the game.  Yes – this sounds like science fiction, but we assure you it is now science fact.

Is there any minimum/maximum height for a guest?

Technically, there is no minimum height, but users at least four feet or taller will have a better VR experience. Also, any guest who is seven feet or taller may also experience a less-optimal VR experience.

I wear prescription glasses, do I need to take them off?

Not likely!  The HTC Vive head-mounted display (HMD) features slots to allow the average pair of eyewear to fit inside while using the system.  The Vive also features adjustment knobs to configure the focus for each eye independently, and a separate adjustment knob to match the screen separation to that of your eyes!

What if I feel motion sickness while using the VR system?

As with any motion-related entertainment, some people may be susceptible to unexpected side-effects during the VR session.
Should you feel uneasy at any point, we ask that you stop the VR session and inform us.

What are your most popular experiences?

There’s really no such thing. Each guest finds their favorite on their own from shooting droids in space and fighting off zombies to racing on a track, flying on a paraglider, watching short films or painting

Do you have food and drinks?

Yes we have variety of snacks, soft drinks, beer, wine, etc. Check our menu.

WILL YOU STORE MY STUFF?

We have several lockers in the front of the store. You will be able to store your items in the lockers and keep the key with you.
