Sandbox VR’s socially immersive gaming experience combines full-body motion capture and high-quality haptics to deliver unprecedented realism and complete immersion not possible with home virtual reality systems or other location-based virtual reality sites, taking group virtual reality gaming and competitive socializing to the next level.
Players experience thrilling, exhilarating, and unforgettably immersive gameplay as they fend off hordes of zombies, enter a world of swordplay adventures, soar through the clouds in a space elevator, or face off in a futuristic battle arena – the true future of immersive entertainment.
The Park Meadows location will feature five private rooms for VR gaming called “holodecks” where groups of up to six players have a truly shared experience, exploring virtual worlds and relying on each other to succeed in games specifically designed to be social experiences. Sandbox VR will add a whole new entertainment experience to the Denver area.
“Opening the first VR Sandbox in Colorado is extremely exciting for us!” says Steven Zhao, CEO of Sandbox VR. “We’re thrilled to bring a new kind of immersive entertainment to the area. Park Meadows draws visitors from across the state, and we’re proud to join this vibrant community.”
“We love introducing new brands to Park Meadows and are proud to welcome Sandbox VR’s first virtual reality to Colorado,” said Pam Kelly, Park Meadows Senior General Manager. “We are excited to extend the offerings to our customers, and we know our community is thrilled with this new opening.”
With their friends, family or colleagues, players are equipped with a VR headset, a haptic vest, a backpack and motion sensors on the wrists and ankles. This technology allows players to see and physically interact with each other while feeling like they’re in the middle of an action movie, with the heightened emotions that come from not only watching a film, but also of becoming the stars of the action.
Guests choose from six exclusive immersive experiences, each created by Sandbox VR’s in-house creative team of video game industry veterans:
