Mirage VR is Canada’s first full-body, free-roam, multiplayer virtual-reality experience! Enter fantasy worlds where players use magical powers and teamwork to overcome obstacles. Take on an evil being and save Sherwood Forest, or get ready to set sail in search of hidden treasure and dragons – whatever the quest, players are not just playing the game, they are living it!
Also referred to as hyper-reality, Mirage VR offers immersion at the highest level. With hyper-reality, virtually simulated environments are combined with physical elements to allow real life movement. Players experience things and travel to worlds that they could have only dreamed of before.
With no wires or cables to worry about, players are able to roam freely as they work through their quest. Until now experiencing virtual reality with friends has been almost impossible due to hardware incompatibility and lack of content. Mirage VR’s specialized equipment allows groups of players to interact, and kick, swing and talk to each other just like they would in real life. This immersive multiplayer experiences places social interaction at its core.
Making the experience feel even more realistic is the in game avatar developed for each player. Players choose from four characters that can be customized right down to hairstyles and wardrobes. Once the game starts, players see each other’s avatars in real time. With different experiences to choose from, each game provides a unique experience. Families, students and hard core gamers will all enjoy the fun!
Mirage VR also hosts birthday parties and teambuilding events. Games take both individual effort and cooperative team play to complete. Mirage VR is about bringing people together, and creating unforgettable memories that extend beyond virtual dimensions.
Located at 283 Duke Street in the heart of Kitchener’s tech sector, Mirage VR is minutes away from the ION light rail Central station.
