Imagine you are playing a video game. You find yourself in the character’s shoes, literally, not figuratively. Virtual reality (VR) arcade games provide an immersive experience, taking the entire concept of video gaming to the next level. The technology simulates the environment of the game and places you in the thick of the action. Rather than staring at a screen and using a controller, you wear a VR headset which allows you to try firsthand all the actions your avatar or character can perform in a virtual world. Adding this type of attraction to a family entertainment center can provide a unique experience for customers.
VR gaming is a growing industry. The number of people using virtual reality technology is on the rise, with the number quadrupling from 2016 to 2018. As a result, companies are putting their resources into developing new entertainment experiences for people to enjoy. For consumers, this is a great time because of the variety of options from traditional arcade games, VR, games of skills and more. For businesses in the amusement and entertainment space, this prospect represents a great opportunity to attract new customers. Betson has targeted some key VR technology vendors that offer unique experiences that can fit almost any size location.
