This entertainment park will transport you to virtual worlds from the heart of Shibuya.
Adding to the growing list of VR arcades popping up in Japan, Tokyo-based entertainment company ADORES has just opened a VR entertainment park called “VR Park Tokyo” on December 16.
Conveniently located only 5-minutes away from Shibuya Station, VR Park Tokyo takes up an entire remodeled 4th floor of the company’s flagship store “Adores Shibuya Shop”.
With higher-end VR headsets often times being inaccessible for many Japanese consumers, location-based VR arcades like this one may be the best way to introduce the technology to a market hungry to try VR for the first time.
This VR arcade is expected to have a total of eight different experiences, many of which utilized the HTC Vive, including 2 original attractions jointly developed by ADORES and GREE. Experiences are divided up into different sections of the arcade floor, each having their own unique look and theme to the play space.
If you end up stopping by, you can expect to pay 3,200 yen ($40, AU$50, £30) for unlimited access to each game for 70 minutes.
