Welcome to Base Station VR

Welcome to Base Station VR Lounge, Johnston's (previously Providence's) and Rhode Island's first and only dedicated Virtual Reality Arcade/Lounge, having opened in 2017.

Base Station VR Lounge came about as an inspiration for a way to share Virtual Reality (VR) with those that may never get the chance to experience it for themselves. Most people have never really experienced VR, having at most only tried it with one of the cheaper headsets that you put a phone into. Although that can give a very basic view of what VR is capable of, it is missing a true level of immersion that we at Base Station VR can provide. With multiple headsets each having an 8'x8' space to physically move around in, we provide what those phone VR sets (and other cheaper VR headsets) cannot. The added benefit of multiple stations is  the opportunity of playing multiplayer VR games with friends.

At Base Station VR, you can rent out a single headset for 60 minutes for yourself, or rent out all 8 of our headsets and share them with up to 50 people for as long as a 3 hour time frame. You're welcome to bring food, cake, pizza, soda, etc (although we do sell some soda and drinks) for our party package. You can certainly also cater the event if you'd like (if you are a caterer that wants to work with us, please contact us!). We want your experience with Virtual Reality to be an experience.

So if you're looking for something unique and different to do in in the Providence area (we're about 10 minutes from Providence) or something to do in Rhode Island in general, this might be a great consideration for your time.

Who Comes to Base Station VR?

You might be surprised by who comes to Base Station VR. We've had kids from 5 to adults in their eighties come by and participate in Virtual Reality. There is something for everyone, with experiences that are simple animated VR, to painting in 3D, to fighting zombies and robots in the future. Every skill level is supported and you might find something you didn't expect to to like in the mix. If you're looking for something unique to do, come by and give it a try. Smiles are inevitable.
