Took the 15 year old here at his request, and he met up with an online friend to have real time together “virtually”
Got a 20% discount because they booked out two spaces, so paid $60 ish dollars instead of $77 for two hours.
Manager showed them an intro video and explained the facilities/amenities and they were off...and so were we.
We could have stayed as there are lounges etc but we wandered off and let the boys do their own thing and picked them up after their time was up.
Teenagers don’t give much away but I believe they did enjoy themselves and that they would go again. The manager also explained how you can use your own Steam account and games and hire the space for only $10 per hour which they seemed keen for, and of course would be less hurtful to the parents pocket.
They had fun, it’s pricey, but they enjoyed it.

I visited this place a few months ago for my son to try VR for the first time. I tried it too and it was so much fun!
This place used to be more open to first time VR players but now it's a geeky, nerdy place and it was kinda creepy being there...

Sorry just an honest opinion.

Hi Kim, I'm very sorry to hear you feel this way, I've owned and managed the Arcade myself since it opened and this is the first negative review that I've received. We've changed a bit over the last couple of weeks but it has been largely the same for the previous 6months before that so I'm unsure exactly what has changed since the times you've been in and I assure you I'm still passionate about getting people into VR for the first time and making sure they get to see how amazing it is. If you'd like to email me at nick.wallace@freespacevr.com.au I'd be happy to hear what has changed that you feel has made it feel "Creepy" to the point of only being 2 out of 5 now so I can improve. Kind Regards, Nick Wallace

Fantastic set-up run by a wonderful bloke.

Went with my 88-year-old father and WW2 aviation tragic to try the Berlin Blitz VR experience. I am guessing this is not the typical visit, but Nick could not have been more helpful in getting things set up, and was very generous with his time, including answering a long series of questions about the technology.

It's clearly a great space for games as well and is well set up for groups of all sizes. Highly recommended for anyone curious about VR.

Went here to celebrate a birthday as we wanted to try something new. Definitely a different experience. Staff were friendly and helpful. Cost $50 for an hour for up to three people.
Had lots of fun but this is just a once of experience for us!!!

I am not a gamer well I could have said that statement about a few weeks ago and then i discovered Free Space VR Arcade. I booked my husband and I in for his birthday to give it ago. He was skeptical, so was I a bit. Nick was great and got us up and running and now I get gaming. I have not had so much fun (with or without drinking) for ages. Nor have I been so bloody scared (stupid plank). We loved it so much we brought my sister-in-law and brother-in-law back a few days later when they were visiting. That is when i discovered games we can play together and more terror (nope still think the plank is stupid and who in the right mind flies when terrified of heights, lucky no children were harmed with my screaming and swearing). We had the best hour of laughing, screaming, helping each other fight the bad guys and knocking each other out. I can't wait to go back and tell everyone about this place. I hope you get bigger Nick cause if you become as popular as you should I won't be able to come and play.

Free Space VR is not about what you SHOULD be doing instead of doing other things, it exists be cause of what you COULD be doing.

You COULD be swinging Light Sabers and achieving a Top Ten Global Skill score. You COULD be standing on Everest admiring the view while wearing sneakers and shorts. You COULD develop a deep and meaningful relationship with a mouse named Quill. Or you COULD take control of a Mech and save millions of people’s lives after watching your only son perish. Or you could walk out on a plank of wood. 80 storeys above a city.

These are some of the things you COULD do at Free Space VR. And I strongly suggest you should.

First time and it was amazing. The owner ran us through it and then set us up to play some fun games together.
Richie's plank experience and loco dojo are must plays.

Amazing idea being able to use vr and just pay by the hour as apposed to the large start up costs to do it at home. My girlfriend and I will definitely be back playing the great range of co-op games, solo games and even the games you can have 4 people in.

We went there for my birthday - We were all newbies, and had a fantastic time. The owner, Nick, was really nice and friendly, and looked after us all. Great fun, and great value for money, as well. Looking to buy my own VR gear, now!
