What is virtual reality?

Virtual Reality is just that, a reality that isn’t your own – VR allows you to experience whole new worlds and sensations. Using the most up to date technology and “Room Scale Virtual Reality” allowing for a truly immersive experience that you’ll be talking about for months to come.

Who are we?

We’re not special, we’re not Uber-Cool – we’re gamers, lifelong gamers, from the ZX Spectrum (Yes, you can age us on that…) all the way to playing Candy Crush on our phones. We discovered virtual reality, as the HTC Vive and the Oculus Rift began to go “Mainstream” and we worked one thing out, damn quickly. It’s either food or VR – It’s not cheap, it’s not easy to set up. So, we decided, hey let’s do both! So, we decided to make VR accessible and for a fraction of the price, you can experience VR and we can eat! That’s where Colossal Escape came from.

Who can use virtual reality?

There aren’t many limitations to who can be immersed in VR – Unfortunately you need to be over the age of 8 years old. There is no upper age limit! We have experiences to suit all tastes, from the educational enthusiast all the way to adventurers seeking the next great journey.

How does a session at Colossal Escape work?

Up to 4 people can book a room for 1 hour. In that time play, explore and be amazed as you leave reality. A member of staff will show you how to attach the equipment and away you go. The rest of your team can relax and watch what you see on state of the art equipment as you are totally immersed.

Can I play with my friends in VR?

Yes – Up to 4 people can play together in our Black Hole Room, and two players together in our Space Marine Room in One Hour Sessions (If you want to book two consecutive sessions we’re happy to discuss possibilities) In your hour, you will be able to explore new worlds and be amazed as you leave your reality and come in to ours. A member of staff will be on hand to show you how to attach the equipment and get you set up. After that, within reason, the room and the hour is yours. The rest of your team can relax and watch what you see on state of the art equipment and see what you see, before switching allowing for everyone in your party to experience this amazing new sensation.

Can I book for my group, club, school or college?
