What is Virtual Reality?
Virtual Reality, commonly known as VR, is a realistic digital simulation of reality.
The reality may be a physical location such as Mount Everest or the ocean floor. Maybe an event in history, such as hopping around on the Moon, a simulated “other world” or back in time to pre-history, complete with dinosaurs!
From age 6 to a 106, able-bodied persons and those with mobility issues. The VR Experiences at Tension are made for everyone.
VR is also the ultimate gaming platform, no longer are you sat at a Monitor or TV, with VR you are there! The experience is completely immersive and incredibly believable.
YOU DO NOT NEED TO BE TECHNICALLY MINDED OR A GAMER TO ENJOY VR – IT IS VERY EASY TO USE.

How does Tension VR operate?
Each VR experience will take place in its own private room, with a (soft)maximum of 4 persons per room.
We use the HTC Vive, which is a top of the range HMD (Head Mounted Device), for more on why we use the Vive click Here
Each member of the group can experience VR, one at a time, as inside the room is seating for 3 persons and the person having the VR experience. Those not participating can watch the VR WORLD on a large TV screen within the room, so you can see what they see. Very exciting!
On the first session, a fully trained Tension team member will show you how to use the equipment and navigate you through the Virtual World, and load any games or experiences you wish to view.
You can also participate in experiencing VR if you wear glasses, as the headset can be adjusted. Our team member will help you with this.
YOU DO NOT NEED TO BE TECHNICALLY MINDED OR A GAMER TO ENJOY VR – IT IS VERY EASY TO USE AND WE ARE SURE YOU WILL BE ADDICTED AFTER YOUR FIRST EXPERIENCE!
Room prices are £40.00 per hour per group (1 – 4 people) – and must be booked in advance, although larger bookings can be accommodated under special request. If you would like to book for a larger group, such as for birthday parties, please contact us through the details at the bottom of the page.
