What Is Virtual Reality

Virtual Reality, or “VR” is a digital simulation of an environment directed towards the player in an immersive 3D image that can be interacted and engaged with in seemingly real ways. VR provides the ultimate gaming platform by putting you inside the game and the best part is, you don’t need to play games or be a “Gamer” to enjoy it.

With lots of games to choose, from being the survivor of a zombie apocalypse, to taking on an alien invasion as a bounty hunter, destroying an evil megacorporation in a cyberpunk resistance, defending fantasy castles from orcs and dragons or firing angry birds at annoying pigs?

Do it all and more at the Pulse Virtual Reality Arcade!
