Are you Hi-Tec buff? Video Games, Action and Fiction fascinates you? Then get ready to walk into the world of VR and experience like no other. VR park is a new venture of Emaar Entertainment a subsidery of Emaar Properties.
On media preview I got the privilege to experience this augmented reality park where the main purpose is to believe the unreal into real. Launched in March 2018, the attraction is designed to ‘Challenge Reality’ through mind-blowing experiences, blurring the lines between perception and reality through unforgettable and mind-blowing experiences, spanning wholly immersive rides, interactive games and educational journeys.
Spanning on two story this place VR Park offers attractions to suit all ages and interests, including adrenaline, horror, tranquility and more. The whole place with blue electrifying entrance to the dim lights inside differentiate it from any other game areas, with loud noise and freaking sharp lights that sometimes gives you migraine.
Good news is the entry is free so at least anyone can enter and gauge the fun before hitting the seat in real. Rides are priced as low as AED 15 and after all the enthralling ride you can sit back and relish some delectable treat from the PVRK Café.
