Thank you so much.Amanda Wilson2019-06-04T01:35:06+0000Nidal is the best! Super helpful and patient with people new to VR (including non-techie people). There's a huge game... selection for whatever you feel like playing. I'm always excited to go back and try something new 😁read moreThom Sparks2019-05-23T08:58:53+0000awesome place to bring the kids and let them go at it. they love it and you get to sneak in then actually getting some... exercise without them knowing. and an added plus, its fairly inexpensive to rent out the whole place (5 monitors) for a private birthday party . and the guy that works there definitely earns his money helping the kids load games and explaining . as you can tell i can say enough good about the place. I'm a disabled guy who doesn't get to exercise with my son a lot a d here i can be that againread morePhil Hirons Jr2019-05-05T03:02:57+0000My kids love it.

Highly... recommend!read moreJacqueline Alzate2019-03-03T23:32:37+0000Super fun experience! My boyfriend and I had a great time. The host, I think that's what you call him, was super nice... and helpful. Very patiently explained the steps to us and made the whole experience a lot more entertaining. If we're ever in RI again, will definitely return. 10/10 would recommend.read moreCristina Riendeau2019-03-02T01:36:07+0000Our first visit...will definitely be back! Thank you..my son and I had a great time!Deb Moriarty2019-02-23T22:13:37+0000I cannot say enough about Base Station and the owner Nidal. My cousin and I took our teenage boys here for February... vacation. It's hard enough to get them out of their rooms nevertheless out of the house. The owner was patient and explained how to use the equipment and how to navigate through if they wanted to choose different games. After the game was over we weren't even down the stairs and they were asking when they could go back! I highly recommend this for kids, teenagers and adults. Deb Zread moreMandy Baker2019-01-25T20:50:57+0000So much fun and easily enjoyed by all levels of gamers!Stephanie Proulx2019-01-20T14:08:27+0000Really fun group activity! The owner and operator is very helpful. Different experience levels availableJeremy Venditto2019-01-04T22:14:23+0000Friendly and helpful staff in a comfortable environment. It was my first time using VR and it was absolutely amazing.... There are a ton of different games to choose from at a good price, you won’t be disappointed here.read moreVictoria Somlo2018-08-30T19:10:14+0000My son Billy (9 years old) and I have gone to Base Station a number of times over the past summer, and while my son... would be the best person to rate the actual Virtual Reality experience, as he is the one who uses the simulators, I can attest to the pleasure of working with the owner, Nidal, who goes above and beyond to ensure Billy has a fun time. Nidal is patient, sweet, bright, and obviously cares about offering the best experience to his customers! Oh, and he is a cutie, to boot! If all business owners were as conscientious as Nidal, it would be a better world!read moreEugene Ridge2018-08-27T01:28:59+0000(In my 1930's radio voice) "It's the wave of the future!"

We are from Virginia... and we are up visiting family. My son really wanted to go to an arcade while we were up here. I Googled arcades around here and saw the Base Station VR Lounge and we decided to give it a try and I am glad we did. It truly was an experience of a life time. I was worried that I would get motion sickness because I have heard it can happen with VR. But I had no issues. I played a multi player game with my son a few times and it was amazing. We both enjoyed it. The next 30 minutes we both played solo games. I played John Wick and it is amazing how real everything seemed. All in all, this place is amazing. It is a little expensive but for the money, I believe it is well worth it. I'm looking forward to visiting here again on our next visit to Rhode Island.read moreLisa Vargas-Sinapi2018-07-27T17:35:20+0000My grandson loved t. He got to choose from many different games.

I did the spiderman VR experience and it was... great. My sweetie did the google earth VR and was soaring above & into the Grand Canyon. It was great fun, we will definitely return. If they sold booze we would stay forever.read moreRebecca Briggs2018-04-21T22:03:34+0000The host was impatient at times and made several demeaning remarks, that he thought were "jokes". It took me pointing... out that my son was autistic that he reset and was appropriate the rest of our time there. Before making a reservation, have them explain to you the games, most of the games are war, gun related, Zombie take over type things. The job simulator game was a hit, as well as fruit ninja. The bathroom was crammed and there's only one. Would make a good birthday gift for one kid, but definitely not suitable for a group larger then 4.read moreAngela DiCesaro2018-03-18T19:05:32+0000Highly recommend.

They make sure you have a good time and actually care about their customers. You don't see that as much anymore.Fran P.17:25 10 Dec 19This place is FAB!

We were running late to our scheduled time due some heavy traffic and owner was very understanding and pleasant through the experience. Highly recommended.hi people what21:50 03 Nov 19Very Awesome Place! Me and my cousin calvin were playing together. Also no glitches or anything!Camille Carino15:31 13 Oct 19We had nine thirteen- and fourteen-year-old boys for a birthday party, the majority of whom were serious gamers. The hard-core gamers of course loved the experience, but I was happy to see that even the less gaming-oriented kids had fun. We had six headsets for two hours for the nine kids, so there was always a squad of three who were not gaming at any given moment; they entertained themselves in the party room with the PS 4 and snacks while waiting their turn on the headsets, and I have to say the turn-taking was self-regulated and very fair. Nidel was a relaxed and accommodating host. The gaming space was well-designed, and the separate party room was really quite nice. The lounge provided tablecloths, cutlery, napkins, and cups--just supply the pizza/cake/drinks and you're done! We appreciated the selection of board games available in the party room as well. While the kids gamed in the adjacent space, we the parents enjoyed a good old-fashioned game of Scrabble! The party was really a great success. Thanks Nidel for an excellent experience!Daniel Rivera17:36 19 Sep 19Excellent Place to spend time in VR world. I had my friend’s bachelor party here and we had a blast! The staff is excellent! I highly recommend this place.isaura cabral19:05 09 Aug 19Fun place. My son had a blast. Owner very nice and helpful. Good variety of VR games. Highly recommend.Amanda01:43 04 Jun 19Awesome place! Nidal is friendly and super helpful. Everyone should come at least once to try it out, there really is nothing like VR. I promise you'll be laughing the whole time, just like my family and I always do when coming here, and we're all adults! VR isn't just for kids!Andrew Borstein01:24 08 May 19I rented the space for 2 hours with about 10 friends on a Sunday afternoon and it was not only really fun, but a truly memorable occasion. I'm certainly not the first person to think about proposing to his girlfriend in virtual reality... but I know I'm the first to do it at Base Station VR Lounge! And she said, yes, so I'm probably a little biased in this review. Regardless, everything was great. The staff were very helpful in planning the occasion and making sure it went smoothly. The space was very comfortable and kind of has a tech-y living room vibe to it. If you haven't tried VR before, this is a great place to start. Will definitely be back again, maybe this time on our anniversary!Douglas Small02:43 11 Apr 19Had a great time with family for birthday of our 10 year old grandson. The owner was very helpful and attentive. Only issue was some glitches due to bandwidth which understand was due to heavy web use on the Saturday afternoon we were there. Recommend a visit.Philip Hirons, Jr.23:06 31 Mar 192 hour birthday party all 5 stations. Very cool. Great staffMlg Jay14:19 16 Mar 19I’m a kid so I couldn’t reach the helmet in super hot but the guy helped me reach and it was the best 20 mins of my lifeDan Marrone02:14 18 Feb 19My girlfriend and I booked two VR headsets today and had a fun time playing multiplayer games. The games do require a bit of a learning curve and set up. Shout out to the employee working today, he was able help everyone out as quick as he could. Give this man a raise! There really should be two employees working the floor.Jillian Donoghue22:11 29 Sep 18Very fun! We went for my brother's birthday. Really cool experience. Professional headsets and just a really awesome little place. You don't notice it from the outside, but look online, it's very fun. I would recommend to my friends. Definitely coming back!Shannon Wallace00:27 08 Apr 18This place is amazing. Great for both adults and kids. Had a surprise adult birthday party for my boyfriend and his buddies. All of us were very VR inexperienced but that was ok. The owner was extremely helpful, knowledgeable, and patient with our group. He even took pictures! We had a blast and want to come back soon. Very reasonably priced and great location. Can’t say enough nice things!YourGameSucks22:13 21 Feb 18I had a great time here. I am what some people consider a "noob" when it comes to Virtual Reality, but the games that I played, (Job Simulator and Skyfront), were very easy to learn and I recommend them to anyone coming here. The staff were nice, and I'll definitely be back here soon.Etie-Lee Schaub04:51 28 Jan 18Lots of fun. Great local attraction. Lots of games and experiences to try. Sometimes you need a reservation, otherwise you can just walk in. Highly recommend.Joel Nadeau14:42 01 Jan 18The 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.Owen Herlihy The King of Random Science22:07 09 Dec 17The 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.Scott Anderson17:46 02 Dec 17The shop keep was both friendly, informative and very helpful. Definately will be going back. Very Worth it.Richard Jardon23:35 30 Oct 17I 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.Elizabeth Sturla17:44 28 Oct 17Tons of fun, our 10 year old birthday boy and his buddies had a wonderful experience. Highly recommend!
