Think of the experience as a cross between a short film, or sometimes a walking simulator, and a theme park ride. You will be seated in a rotating chair and wear a head-mounted display and headphones.
The Festival will be running Sept 19th - 20th, 2015, between 11:00am to 7:00pm each day at 77 Peter Street. More details about individual Virtual Reality stories can be found at our primary site FIVARS.net Due to the nature of the venue and content, you must be 19+ years old to attend this event and sign a waiver.
