Went with 2 friends and had great fun, we had barely left the building before talking about going again. Some of the games felt a bit rushed but everyone had fun and really enjoyed the experience.

Me and two mates did the Variety Package - it was so much fun and a great first VR experience. The Variety Package lasted about 45 mins. You play approx 9 games, all about 5 mins each. We can't wait to go back.

furniture designers display their wares. There are
specialist bookshops, funky record bars, and quality
vintage clothing shops where browsing is the next best
