VR World NYC is the biggest Virtual Reality collection in the world.

With the help of computer technology, VR – short for Virtual Reality, is an immersive experience in which users are teleported into a 3D World. The senses of hearing, touch, and vision are stimulated in the interactive world which the computer is the gatekeeper of. The users’ eyes are the guide and every single movement is tracked and the graphics react accordingly.

Users will wear either an Oculus, HTC Vive, or Samsung Gear headset. Each has a set of different experiences and teleports the user into an artificial world where the limitations are endless. Some experiences are completely hands-free and some require use of controls similar to electronic games.

VR World has over fifty unique experiences that guides will lead users through. Guides also ensure a full understanding of the equipment.

VR World is the largest virtual reality experience center located in North America and the Western Hemisphere. It features the finest and most diverse virtual reality experiences that can be used in a public setting. Unlike other venues that concentrate on a single area or genre, VR World aims to deliver the best of virtual reality taking its guests to as many destinations as possible. Each guide is truly passionate about what they do, which makes for an easy and highly entertaining time while at VR World.
