Frequently Asked Questions
What is virtual reality?
Virtual reality is a digital world that you ‘enter’ simulated by a VR headset where the user immerse in environments that can be similar to or completely different from the real world. A person using virtual reality equipment is able to look around the artificial world, move around in it, and interact with virtual features or items.
How easy is it to use VR?
Virtual reality is pretty intuitive. You use hand controllers to interact with the VR experience that we provide. Our gaming coach will do a quick tutorial before we set-up each participant in their headset for the first time.
How does VR Partyz work?
For booked events, our gaming coach will be at the venue about 30 min before the party is scheduled to start to set everything up. The gaming coach will deploy our VR pads/mats in your play area and setup the VR headsets so they are ready to go. One pad is intended for one participant. Once you have gathered the participants, the coach will provide an overview on how to operate the VR unit and how to activate the games, then, each participant will receive a VR unit (headset and remote controllers) and will be guided to their designated VR pads/mats.
How much space do you need?
We need about 5 x 5 ft. per VR pad/mat. It is about the same size if you were to paint a circle around a regular chair.
How many can you accommodate?
We can support up to 30 participants in a 2-hour window, if you have more people, you can purchase an extra hour for $99.
How many can play at the same time?
On averge, a standard size venue will support two to five stations at a time. If you wish to have more stations and have the space for them, we will be happy to acomodate you (rates apply) just let us know ahead of time.
Where can I host my VR Party?
We recommend indoors. Anywhere that has cover from sun and rain since both can cause damage and interfere with tracking of the headsets and controllers.
I want to host a VR Party but I do not have enough indoor space. What can you do?
We can accommodate some outdoor events and provide game tents as long as the following criteria are met:
Do I need internet?
No. When you book a party with us, we download all of the games ahead of time. If you want us to add a game that requires internet, we have a portable WiFI router that will support the game.
What virtual reality games are available?
We make sure that the games we provide are always appropriate for the age and skill level of the participants. For example, for kids ages from 6 to 12 we provide beginner-level type of games these games have a quick learning curve, minimal controls, and are engaging and exciting. No dead people, no blood, and no foul languages. However, we’re happy to discuss your specific needs and make sure we have something appropriate for your event.
How does VR Partyz keep the headset clean?
We bring sanitation wipes with us to clean each headset and the controllers between uses. In general, the headsets don't get too dirty, but we aim to provide a clean experience so as not to spoil the fun. We also make sure that we use microfiber lens wipes to avoid damaging the lens.
What is included with the VR Partyz package?
Our VR Partyz package includes the Oculus Quest headsets, motion controllers, VR games, VR pads/mats, Chromecasts and on-site staff to instruct and assist your participants throughout the event.
