Explore Worlds You’ve Never Been in at These 6 VR Arcades in Singapore
Is travelling outside of Singapore not possible for you at the moment? You can still satiate your thirst for exploration, thanks to virtual reality (VR). The city-state has numerous VR arcades where you can spend hours being transported into another world, where pretty much anything is possible.
Whether they’re zombie battles, space expeditions, extreme sports, or exploring ancient Egypt, the options for getting your VR adrenaline is endless. So, bring your friends along and have an awesome time at these virtual reality arcades in Singapore.
1. Zero Latency
Singapore’s biggest VR gaming arena, Zero Latency, is where you can choose from its wide selection of games and themes, including robots, zombies, and fairytale settings. The staggering 4,000-square feet warehouse can accommodate up to eight players so you’re free to move around without worrying about bumping into a wall. You get to use a headset with 2k resolution and a perfectly weighted controller for the ultimate VR experience.
Hologate offers more than ten VR games, ranging from the usual zombie and sci-fi to other varieties where you could become a chef onboard a pirate ship or enter the world of Angry Birds, to name a few. The range of games at Hologate means that there’s something for beginners, advanced gamers, and anyone who wishes to try simulated experiences regardless of age. Prepare to lose track of time while immersed in Hologate’s virtual wonderland.
3. Headrock VR
Experience the thrill of riding high-speed roller coasters without actually riding one at HeadRock VR, which should be perfect if you’re scared of getting into a real ride. HeadRock VR at Resorts World Sentosa is Singapore’s first-ever VR theme park, replicating the excitement of being at a real park, but cranked up to 100%.
Aside from rolling with the stomach-turning loops of the coaster, you can also navigate your way out of a blistering snowstorm, go rafting in the deep of the jungle, or plunge into molten lava. Indeed, Headrock VR is the place for hardcore adrenaline junkies.
4. Legion of Racers
Are you fascinated by the idea of being an F1 race car driver but hesitant about being one? Get the feel of riding one of the supercars, thanks to Legion of Racers. This small virtual arcade in Kallang Avenue has several drive simulators where you can drive your favourite racing car and drive at high speeds around the most famous tracks around the world.
Aside from F1, the arcade also offers Dirt Rally and street racing experiences. Legion of Racers can accommodate only a small group of adults, so make sure to check in advance to reserve your slots.
5. Virtual Room
This is how Virtual Room in Chinatown sets itself apart from other VR arcades: it offers each player his or her own 3m x 3m room to navigate around instead of being included in a group, as most arcades usually do. While players get to have individual rooms to roam around, Virtual Room is voted best team-based VR game room and named one of the top 10% of attractions worldwide in 2020 by the online travel company Tripadvisor.
It’s not surprising that the price is pretty steep at Virtual Room compared to other arcades, but that’s worth the 45 minutes of game time you get here.
6. VR World
If you’re a fan of action-adventure video games Assassin’s Creed and Prince of Persia, then VR World is your place to be. The arcade offers VR escape games inspired by French video game developer Ubisoft’s creations, and this is your chance to experience those environments in the most immersive ways possible.
VR World’s other games and experiences include a laser-tag game, a zombie apocalypse, and some family-friends ones, as well.
