Launching with 12 top-selling VR games across a range of themes suitable for all ages (over 10), guys or girls, WE R VR offers one-hour sessions in their ‘cubes’ at $45/hr with players able to ‘switch’ games if they like. Players play solo or as a duo, with team-play and competitive events planned. To start, bookings are accepted by phone, email, Facebook or in person with online bookings coming soon at www.wervr.com.au
A Start-Up with Heart (and a lot of cool tech)
WE R VR is a new venture for Caroline Ely and Trevor Rose, both recent residents of Newman and career professionals in management. They’re looking to step outside the box with the WE R VR arcade to make a cool new community recreation facility.
“We see the attraction of the latest action and quest games in life-size VR,” says Caroline. “Players of any age get caught up in challenges, cool graphics and competitive levels. People can be a superhero, fight zombies, work together through an escape room and explore medieval or miniature worlds. We want to make WE R VR a special, a high value recreational choice for date night or family entertainment.”
Among 12 games on offer, players can enjoy shoot ‘em up action with Raw Data; awesome sound symphonies created by light sabers with Beat Saber; boxing ring challenges with Creed: Rise to Glory; or a beautiful miniature winter wonderland with the Curious Tale of the Stolen Pets. Headsets are quality HTV Vive Pro wireless and the Oculus Quest.
WE R VR has clear Rules of Conduct and has all players sign a waiver. While there are no health restrictions, VR gaming is not recommended for those who are pregnant, have epilepsy or have heart conditions. All children under 15 need guardian permission. Games can be selected on arrival with no reservations required.
A booming bandwagon to be on
Virtual Reality games are big in Australia with arcades in most major metros and 40% growth in high end headsets. Market volume worldwide is expected to reach over 98 million Oculus Quest units sold. Those units are the ‘Gold Standard’ of headsets, retailing between $650 and $2,000 each in Australia. No wonder visiting a VR gaming arcade in a cool studio like WE R VR has massive appeal for more than just gaming-geeks –it’s fun and good value for the whole family!
