The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.

My partner and I both equally enjoyed the experience, definitely something to remember. Nothing like any past gaming experience. staff were fantastic, patient, knowledgeable and attentive! Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a quirky hour of fun in the city!

Worst experience I have ever had in my life if I could give it no points I would, the staff were rude and patronising to the point we ended up asking for a refund and taking our business elsewhere. Also anyone who have any medical conditions or concerns please spare yourself the trouble of being publicly humiliated and put down by the staff at this establishment while your family and children are present.

They should advice you that even if you have rang and informed them your friend is running 10 min late that the time will start ticking regardless. No lenience is given even if they cant help your child with his game and he has to stand and wait for them as they are busy with other customers. They will still, stop their play dead on that booked minuite. And when you explain your grievance they say "we are sorry but we were booked out" even though every booth was empty (just one family was waiting) and I was told that if I was lucky and I asked them, they may give me extra time next time my son plays.

Hi there, we are sorry that you didn't get your full 50 minute session, we do try and accommodate people who arrive late, but as the next session was booked out we would have been unable to give the friend any extra time as that would have meant delaying the next customers booked in, which we don't feel would be fair, and I'm sure you wouldn't be happy if that happened to you. We did our best to accommodate your group, as we started your son rather than wait for his friend to arrive. We are sorry that the second player missed out on some of his time, however we did our best to get him in as quickly as possible when he showed up. I am sorry to hear your son had to wait for assistance, sometime multiple people need help, and we can only help customers in the order they ask, and we always try to be efficient in getting around to everyone. I can definitely understand how seeing all the empty booth would make it seem like we had the space to give out extra time, however we need that time between sessions to sanitize all the equipment in the shop, as it would be irresponsible of us to put our next customers into a headset that had just been used, especially during this pandemic. Again I am sorry your sons friend wasn't able to get the full experience, I know how much fun VR is (for kids especially) and I hope you decide to bring them both back so they can enjoy themselves to the fullest.

Son introduced me to this. Plank started it off and certainly created a real VR experience. Staff were engaged and friendly.

My child had a great time trying out VR for the first time. She really enjoyed the Job Simulator. I had a go at the car and flight simulators. Project Cars was nice, the flight sim was a little limited with just free flying in the air, no landing, taking off or shooting down other planes. Overall a fun time with very friendly and helpful staff.

Hi there, glad to hear you had at good time here at Viri! If you were concerned about the headset cleanliness, rest assured they're all cleaned between every customer, and we do have wet wipes around the store for you to wipe off your headset if it starts to get a little sweaty - apologies if this wasn't pointed out to you clearly! Hope to see you in again :)

A nice little indoor activity to do with my with my kids that are too old for jumping castles, etc. They really enjoyed the job simulator pretending to be virtual shop assistants.

After getting our heads around the player and booth numbers (prompt online chat with a real person helped us figure out our requirements), booking a session at ViriVR was a breeze. The venue itself was well setup but the girls felt the session times were a little short, I felt it was just right, but we were playing different games.Would highly recommend as your first taste in virtual reality.
