    Great time. Cool new place on Thayer. Perfect for parties.

  • Mary-Jo V. S.Mary-Jo V. S.

    Had a blast! Once I figured out what I was doing! The owner was very nice and patient!

  • Greg B.Greg B.

    Base Station VR is amazing. I went in today and tried out 2 of the games and my mind was blown. It was my first time trying VR and I'm hooked.

    I played a shooting game and another one where I was dodging bullets and fighting faceless enemies. I controlled when it became slow motion and the bullets would slowly fly by my head.

    You have to try this out!

  • XBombXBomb

    This was an awesome experience I would definitely go again The games you see on YouTube are even better irl Top of the line equipment makes it that much better

  • Mike S.Mike S.

    This is something you have to try to believe. From 6-42 we all had a blast. Friendly, unique and affordable. If you are thinking of doing something at a big arcade, think again! This is the place!

  • Robin D.Robin D.

    Very cool joint! I really enjoyed the 3D aspect, and getting immersed in the games.

  • Keith D.Keith D.

    Nidal is a fantastic host and the experience was AMAZING! Can't wait to do it again! Two thumbs up!

  • Scott A.Scott A.

    The shop keep was both friendly, informative and very helpful. Definitely will be going back. Very Worth it.

  • Sherri C.Sherri C.

    I can't wait to go back!!! Excellent for all ages. The kids haven't stopped talking about it. Friendly service and nice venue.

  • Scott C.Scott C.

    Kids had a great time. Awesome idea for a birthday celebration

  • Victoria H.Victoria H.

    It was super fun! We will be back soon! It was worth the Groupon.

  • Craig R.Craig R.

    Would definitely go back. Had a great time and the staff was very helpful.

  • Richard J.Richard J.

    I thought it was a lot of fun. The owner was a good guy and was very helpful. Some of the games had controls that took time getting used to so you waste part of the time just trying to figure things out. At $39/hr, you don't want to waste time. I liked the sailing VR and got lost in that quite a while. I used to sail Lasers and the experience is similar. It would have been more fun if you were actually competing in a race though. All in all, I would recommend it. I'm sure the next time I go, it will be easier as there is definitely a learning curve. But then again, I'm old.

  • Theodore H.Theodore H.

    Great night out. We wanted to see what VR was all about. Session was private and the owner could not have been nicer teaching us about what to expect and how to enjoy the experience. VR transported us away. It was amazing.

  • Elizabeth S.Elizabeth S.

    Tons of fun, our 10 year old birthday boy and his buddies had a wonderful experience. Highly recommend!

  • Joel N.Joel N.

    The kids had a great time (9yo and 14yo); they picked the concepts up quickly. Staff was great (this helped the learning curve) and was of great assistance picking an ‘experience’. We found that an hour was a sufficient amount as well, and we would definitely return when/if in the area again.

    For a new concept, the business is pretty cool. Located in a central area to have a cheap or expensive night out or date, you can augment it by getting your nerd on at this cool place.

    While it is designed with a minimalist yet comfortable appeal, the thing that is really going to grab your attention is once the VR goggles are on.

    After signing the waiver, you place the gear on your head, including headphones to integrate sound, just seeing the 'holodeck'-like VR will seem very cool.

    I was able to take 10 minute sample of a game, which was John Wick: Chronicles. It played pretty well. The technology definitely does a good job of immersing you in the situation, even if I was a total noob.

    I will come back here again!

  • Lankaster P.Lankaster P.

    Perfect for date night! Must do if you have never done it. Great escape and make 30 minutes feel like 2 hours. Owner is onsite and super helpful to make the most of your experience. We will definitely be back for more fun.

  • Jim K.Jim K.

    Held my son's birthday party here (about ten 10 and 11 year olds). I think it was the first VR experience for all of them. The reactions they had when they first put on the headset were priceless. Navigating the game selection and otherwise getting each kid setup and running was a bit difficult and required frequent assistance, but once they got the hang of it, they loved it.

    We rented two stations for three hours so we gave each kid 10 min at a time which was enough to get into some of the longer playing games. I think the favorite was Job Trainer.

    Great time and highly recommended!

  • Owen H.Owen H.

    The place is AMAZING! The staff was very attentive and nice. The games were super fun and my first VR experience was something i'll never forget.

  • Debby O.Debby O.

    So much fun! I think I need another 10-12 hours in there to do all the cool stuff!

  • Burnt HermitBurnt Hermit

    A lot of fun and a great environment for a date or with friends. I'll be coming back.

  • Raphael C.Raphael C.

    This was an incredible experience, I'll definitely go again.
