I really liked this VR Experience, because I did not saw a documentary before in virtual reality. VR makes you feel like you really there, at the location of the film/documentary. I was happily surprised, even though the overal quality could have been better. All...More

Nice place with a cinema and bar. The best VR movies are selected and you can choose different ones. Great to experience this technology!

The idea of a VR cinema is interesting but this place just doesn't quite get the job done. The video clips are mostly a bit fuzzy. Some are interesting but others were pretty dull. The music was good. The place was well run: it ran...More
