ZERO LATENCY VR OPENS IN SYDNEY TOMORROW
The world’s largest free-roam Virtual Reality (VR) entertainment network Zero Latency VR will open the doors to its first VR venue in Sydney tomorrow, 1 December.
Located at 219 O’Riordan Street, Mascot, Zero Latency VR Sydney will allow players to explore VR experiences with up to seven friends, without being restricted by any wires. Customers can book tickets now at https://booking.zerolatencyvr.com/book-now/sydney/, with prices at $59 (Tuesday – Thursday) and $69 (Friday – Sunday).
From 1 December, visitors can survive a reality TV show set in the zombie apocalypse in Undead Arena, or attempt to escape a stranded space station taken over by robots in Singularity. Visitors can expect more experiences to be available over time, including the highly anticipated Far Cry VR (coming 2021), based on the hit Ubisoft game Far Cry 3.
“We’re excited to bring our free-roam virtual reality experience to Sydney, allowing players to explore digital worlds as if they were actually living in them,” said Zero Latency VR CEO Tim Ruse. “Whether you’re looking for something to do with family and friends, a fun hens and bucks night activity, or something different for the work Christmas party, a session in Zero Latency VR won’t soon be forgotten.”
To experience Zero Latency VR, players wear a VR headset, strap into a backpack which tracks movement, and use a controller to interact with the virtual world. During the experience, players can navigate around the virtual environment they’ve chosen by physically moving around the 200 square metre play space and communicating with their friends via built-in microphones and speakers.
Visitors to Zero Latency VR Sydney can have peace of mind knowing that they’ll have a safe and hygienic experience.
“Zero Latency VR’s safety and hygiene standards were high before COVID-19, but we’ve taken extra steps in all our venues to ensure visitors will have an enjoyable, safe experience when they visit,” said Ruse.
“We’ve always performed vigorous sanitisation and disinfection of all gear before and after each session, but we’ve now also adjusted the safety alarms in our games to keep players 1.5 metres apart throughout their experience, and our Game Masters have completed additional training in hygiene practices including temperature checks, sanitation processes, and using personal protective equipment.”
This will be the sixth Zero Latency VR venue in Australia, joining the existing Brisbane, Gold Coast, Perth, Melbourne and South Melbourne venues, and the 46th venue worldwide since the first venue was opened in Melbourne in 2015.
