VR World NYC, New York City

3.3
This summer, VR Worldwide will transform a 20,000sq ft historic retail space into the country’s largest and most well placed Virtual Reality Hub called VR World. We’re launching with over 50 content pieces spanning multiple genres from entertainment to social impact, music, gaming, sports, science, art, and more, all of which are housed within a magical, brightly colored retail space.

Our mission is to catalyze the adoption of VR through the fusion of culture and technology. We aim to make headway for the industry by making VR more accessible not only to consumers but also to content providers and product developers. We are doing this by humanizing the presentation of the medium through the integration of immersive storytelling and human centered spacial design.

Upon arrival to VR World, visitors are invited to engage in a multi-sensory journey that goes beyond Virtual Reality. Onsite content is tightly curated to show the best of many genres, taking advantage of the scope and size of the space to allow viewers to deeply explore the medium.

  • VR world is the best place to go midweek after a long day at work. They make your vr dreams come true with short waits and awesome games. The staff like Heidi were so awesome at explaining everything and being patient with first timers. She was very fun to talk to when you first arrive. She showed me a tip to put the hygienic eye covers on your face was to double up the stings as you put them over each ear. I think most of the staff was really cool. For my birthday it became the best night of my birthday week! Plenty (his actual name) was a great help with what to do first and funny as hell. Oh and Kevin - who was from was from Heaven, he like fixed everything so it fit right and wasn't blurry and after talking with me and my friends found us the best games to check out so we used all of our time wisely...and he was hilarious. If no ones using a game towards the end of the night there is no waiting for your line in the cue just play while waiting for your other game. If you want a good night i suggest blow off some steam virtually at VR world with this perfect mix of games + kind thoughtful staff. Great for all ages and a new experience for any one looking for something different and unlike anything you have ever tried!
  • Had an amazing time with my son, took him for his birthday. William's customer service was superb, he had so much patience and he displayed that he actually loves his job. The manger which I forgot his name was also very professional and demonstrated superb customer service as well, the fact that they remembered my son's name and was so personal with him made him feel extra special. Thank you guys, he had a birthday to remember.
