Location-Based VR Network Launches Escape Room Series

Test your problem-solving skills via Hologate’s supercharged VR-powered escape rooms.

A new partnership between VR entertainment companies HOLOGATE and ARVI VR will come together to produce unforgettable VR escape rooms designed specifically for the HOLOGATE ARENA, each with their own distinctive themes guaranteed to put conventional escape rooms to shame.

Currently there are three VR escape rooms available for you to try.


It’s the beginning of the 22nd century. Society has collapsed amid rapid technological progress. People are modifying their own bodies extensively. Corporations war with one another over data, which has become the most valuable commodity on the market. Your group, made up of cyborgs equipped with special skills, has decided to steal some rare data from the archives of an influential corporation. Infiltrate the complex unnoticed, reach the archives, and download the stack memory.

Mission Sigma

Secret services have located and neutralized a known terrorist who has been hiding out in a deprived area of the city for the last ten years. This is where the good news ends. It turns out that the maniac has installed a nuclear warhead on the roof of the abandoned high-rise structure. The building itself has been turned into a tower filled with intricate traps and obstacles. As a puzzle-solving specialist, it’s up to you to infiltrate the structure, bypass the traps, and disarm the warhead.

The Prison

Your private police force has been cracking down on criminal gangs for years, taking no prisoners in the process. The last major operation left several corrupt police heads rolling. But glory is just one step from oblivion. You’ve been framed and put in jail on trumped-up charges. Your friends still have their freedom though. The escape plan is all set, and you’ll need all the courage, all the cunning, and all the luck you have to gain your freedom and clear your name.

While each VR escape room will lean on a traditional escape room mechanics, each will also feature their own unique characteristics. You’ll have the opportunity to explore every part of the room, pick up objects, and search for hidden clues. You’re also able to participate with your classmates, friends, co-workers, and strangers. However, having that added layer of VR as the delivery mechanism lets you experience more. 

HOLOGATE ARENA’s are currently available in over 35 countries with over 5,000,000 players jumping into VR per year. Of course since COVID, some locations are temporarily closed. You can search for your local HOLOGATE ARENA location here
