VR World NYC, New York City

3.4
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.

  • Awesome staff (very helpful, engaging, outgoing, sanitary, punctual) invigorating experience - brought light to new opportunities to explore. The staff at all time kept the customer well-being a priority. William. H in particular was great at informing me the very different benefits the products gave. So a big thank you to him and the rest of the staff. Awesome.
  • Middle floor was closed, the VR ride shown in the window doesn't even work, and multiple technical difficulties. Luckily it wasn't packed so we didn't have to wait long for the best games. Very clean equipment and bathrooms. Staff was friendly and helpful. Not worth the price of admission though. Save up and get your own VR instead.
