Imagine you are playing a video game. You find yourself in the character’s shoes, literally, not figuratively. Virtual reality (VR) provides 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 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.

The main catalyst behind the strong adoption of VR gaming is the realism the technology offers as you step into a virtual environment. The technology can replicate the scenarios and environments from a game, including real world settings. With these games players can enjoy a sensory experience that mimics the actual activity using motion tracking and eye tracking. The only catch is that businesses need to explore the options in terms of hardware available to them. Selecting the right technology enables them to offer a superior gameplay experience, while leveraging the power of VR.
People interested in VR gaming, or gaming in general, will have a blast with this technology. The graphics in VR games is above and beyond anything conventional games can offer. Moreover, the simulation is lifelike, allowing them to actually ‘play’ the game rather than just control a character. The best part is that you don’t need to be an expert gamer to enjoy VR gaming.
So it should come as no surprise that people are open to the idea of going to an entertainment center to play VR games. Over time, the gaming experience will only improve and the choices available in terms of games will expand. Family entertainment centers can cater to customers of all ages, from young kids to adults. The trend is catching on and will only grow with time. Don’t consider this a fad or your business might miss out.
