What is The Park?

What is Virtual Reality?
Virtual reality is a computer-simulated reality. It replicates an environment that simulates the physical presence of places in the real world or of an imagined world, allowing the user to interact in that environment. VR is the future of gaming, film and entertainment in general. It completely immerses the user in the environment, blurring the lines between realities as entertainment. There’s a constant interaction between the physical world and the digital visual content in the experienced environment.
During the Experience
Will other players join my game?
Games should be played in complete teams to guarantee the best experience. A complete team consists of 6 people for De Dag and 8 people for The Hallow. If you play with a larger group, you'll guarantee your group is playing a private game(s). If you choose to play a non private game with a team of 1 to 5 players for De Dag and 1 to 7 players for The Hallow, it could be that other players will join to complete your team.
Can I take pictures during/after the game?
Yes! During the game your friends or family can watch the game behind a safety glass in the lobby and take pictures of you in action. You can't take pictures yourself during the game because of the hardware you'll be wearing.
How big is the room we will play in?
The Park offers you a playing field of 200 square meters. The game itself is set in a larger virtual area and gives you the feeling that is the terrain is endless.
Won’t I walk into a wall?
If you are approaching a wall or obstacle, the game will give you a clear warning. As long as you follow the game instructions, you won’t have to take the VR glasses off during the game and can let yourself go into the virtual world.
Won’t I get dizzy from wearing VR glasses?
The VR hardware at The Park is designed in a way that it avoids dizziness and other unpleasant VR-feelings as much as possible. But if for a reason you don’t feel too well, our personnel is trained to help you.
How heavy is the hardware? Will I be able to carry it during the whole game?
