Will Virtual Reality make me sick?

GIVE IT A CHANCE! Virtual reality systems have come a long way! If it's your first experience of VR , make sure you’re doing it with a very high-end system like an HTC Vive. This will help minimize the chances of you feeling VR sickness and overall guarantee a better experience. We won't lie though! It might take you a few minutes to adapt to a VR experience. If you are prone to motion sickness, please ask and we'll help you pick games that we'll be more appropriate. WHAT IS VIRTUAL REALITY SICKNESS? VR sickness happens when you’re exposed to a VR environment and it causes symptoms similar to motion sickness. It’s different from motion sickness because real motion isn’t needed - it’s caused just by feeling like you’re moving. THE CHANGING HARDWARE Thanks to better optics, better tracking sensors, and more importantly - better response time/frame rates and resolution, less and less players experience VR sickness. THE CHANGING SOFTWARE In Plank, for example,there is no in-game locomotion and no visualization of the player's body. Despite this prepare for an amazing and engaging experience, free of VR sickness! ARE YOU READY NOW? We can't wait to Welcome you at any of our Gameday VR Locations and give you the tour!
