Around the world in an hour!

This was amazing! I travelled all around the world to some of the greatest natural wonders. I loved it! Flying around Mt. Fuji was spectacular.

Really good fun, and a view of the future!

Brought my daughter and her friend for a summer holiday treat. Great fun for both, and laughter all around. More exercise than expected and girls were dripping in sweat after. Very helpful staff. Good experience all in all and have booked to go back again.

Really good fun!

Went for my adult sons birthday with family. Did the survival group VR game and despite our very varied ages we all thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The two guys there assisting us were welcoming and happy to explain as many times as we needed how to play the game and how the controls worked. Really recommend VR Bournemouth to all ages, my 72 year old father couldn’t believe how much he enjoyed it too! We’re going back again only a few days later as lived it so much! Thanks for a great time.

This is the second time we have visited with my grandchildren aged 12 and 13. They had a great time and enjoyed it so much, that we have now purchased an annual pass. This will give us half price tickets for any further bookings we make for the next 12 months. Prompt service and friendly staff. Thank you. We will definitely be back soon!

Amazing experience and exceptional service.

The customer service we experienced at this centre was exceptional and should be recognised. We were unable to make our first reservation due to a car breakdown and they sorted this and rebooked us without any problems. They were friendly and helpful and when we did make it back the next week the reception we got on arrival was warm and welcoming. There were 5 people playing Tower Tag, older teen and adults and one younger. The man helping (sorry didn’t get name) kept checking on the little one and ensuring she was okay. They had a lot of fun. I would recommend this place to anyone you can be sure of welcoming and friendly service and a great experience:

Plug in and have fun 🤩

Oh my goodness! I’ve never laughed so much as watching 7 11yr olds plugged in, ducking, diving, running on tip toes and shooting into thin air! The boys all had the best time ever. We were looked after amazingly. The staff made it super special and took time with all the boys. They loved the party room! Would highly recommend and we’ll be visiting again soon!

Wonderful Staff

Wonderful staff and a well-kept VR space. Overall a fantastic experience, the prices sting a little but you 100% get what you pay for. Highly recommended, both for people thinking about buying a VR headset but not sure if they want one yet, and just for those looking for a fun day out.

We had a blast

Great support from staff. We are older parents and not tech savvy. We had a blast! Kids loved it and we had a really good laugh as a family.

Great fun, staff were brilliant

A friend and I had a game with our two children on Mon 21st Feb. The game was great fun and the venue was clean with a good vibe! Best of all, and the reason for my review, were the fab staff on duty that day. They were super helpful when we were struggling somewhat to figure out how to unlock clues in our game. But more importantly, they were so helpful with our children who were being typical annoying kids at times! Absolute life savers. Thankyou for giving us a chance to relax, a good laugh and well needed caffeine. :-)

Best place in Bournemouth for family fun

Fantastic afternoon with my grandson. Its a great place for children of all ages ( i'm 61). The time went so fast. It ticked all the boxes for social distancing, cleanliness, very helpful and friendly staff and fun. Everyone has to try it and they have discounts too. Can't wait to try the escape roon next time. Thanks to Olly for all his help today.

Huge thank you

A group of 14 yr olds!

The boys loved it, the team there were very organised. They explained the process and corrected any adjustments with the equipment promptly. We must have picked a quiet time as they added an extra game on the end for free, a great experience. Would highly recommend.

Amazing Staff, convenient location and a mind blowing gamer experience.

Was really not sure what to expect, but was treated to an hour of VR for my Birthday and I was really impressed with time I spent at Central VR. The staff were very welcoming, making sure to ask if we had been before, and told us what to expect. They were very friendly, knowledgeable and helped us every step of the way. It blew my expectations of VR out of the water. It was immersive, difficult and extremely fun. I would recommend starting with this one (Survival), we loved it so much that we have booked onto the second one already and are excited about our return.

– MG Bournemouth Jan 22
Really good fun for beginners and seasoned pro's alike

The game itself was amazing, as a fan of the game series it was a good fun alternative to the usual escape room setups. The puzzles were mildly challenging and this was made more fun (harder) by taking my girlfriend (non-gamer) along. We made it out with time to spare and had a thoroughly good time. A good experience for both seasoned escape roomers and newbies alike. The game does allow for 4 Will 10/10 return for another experience! As we both had ALOT of fun!

Coolest, yet weirdest thing

One of the coolest yet weirdest things I’ve ever done, would definitely come again, 100%, They should definitely keep all the games as I only played on a few but loved the ones that I played on out of the ‘Top 30’ selection.

Great Experience and fantastic staff

Absolutely loved the Hour spent here! Me and my partner came to do the 1hr mixed game slot, the staff we’re extremely helpful in helping us choose a game to play as two player together. The staff here (thank you Sam) really did go above and beyond to make our experience awesome. Equipment was all in great condition and there was a fantastic choice of games. I would definitely come back.

Excellent for teenagers

This was ideal - we booked the 90min VR experience where you can choose from multiple games. Prior to booking the team was helpful in advising which experience to book and also to use the half price tickets. On arrival the team advised and explained how to use the VR sets and were helpful throughout. The two teenagers were able to communicate throughout. Really good and the team are really helpful and ensure you get maximum fun out of your time.

Brilliant Birthday Experience

Really clean and spacious place. Incredibly friendly and helpful staff that managed my daughters birthday party really well, which was especially appreciated because the girls were all new to the experience. They had a cool time and we were very impressed. I’m looking forward to having a go myself next time! strongly recommend this activity for teen birthdays!

Okay, disclosure. I am a woman in her 40s with no experience or, frankly, interest, in computer games. Even the fact that I would use the term computer game probably tells you all you need to know. My idea of using a computer for fun is Microsoft solitaire or Skyping my mum. I went to Centre VR with my partner and our 13 year old. We did the Prince of Persia game. I cannot remember the last time I had SO much unadulterated fun. It was amazing. The controls were easy to master even for such an ingenue and the puzzles genuinely puzzling. We didn’t finish the whole mystery and changed the rest of our holiday plans to go back and have another go. SO much fun. Lovely friendly and helpful staff. Highly recommended.

A bit hesitant at first, but...

I bought a voucher for my partner to play the Assassin’s Creed VR Escape Room as my partner enjoys the Xbox game. Neither of us had done VR before and were a bit hesitant at first but as soon as our headsets were on we honestly had such a great time! I can’t believe how immersive the games are and easy to use especially for someone like me who is awful and any sort of computer game! The staff were so helpful and it was a great experience, we’ll definitely return! 😊

We will be returning

We took a family aged 8 to 65. The 8 year old was taken to a special gaming area and played angry birds close to us but she was so occupied we had almost forgotten all about her. The rest of us played the Survive Together Desert Island survival game. It was a team game and was very professionally managed. The hour flew past and so Covid safe. Sam on the day looked after us and I can honestly say very professional and welcoming, thanks to Roman also who was very helpful and thorough on our first phone call. The whole team at Bournemouth VR should be proud of what they have achieved. Well done to them all, we will certainly be returning on one of their special returning deals.’

– Paul Huff Sept 2021

We visited with our 14 year old grandson for the 90 minute gaming experience where he could select from an array of games to play during that time. He described the experience as "awesome" and would love to go on a regular basis if it were nearer his home. This was the best 90 minutes of a 3 day break for him. He described it to mates on his phone as "totally amazing." The staff were very friendly and helped you if required. During our time there we watched several families and friends participating in other games. Everyone in the centre seemed to be having a great, fun-filled time whatever activity they were doing. All in all, a definite destination in Bournemouth for VR fans of all ages. Great!

Highly recommended! Mind blowing experience

Absolutely amazing experience. Really recommend the Multi pass and playing Assassins creed origins! The staff are passionate about what they do, so so helpful and support you in navigating the VR experience. I wish I had more time in Bournemouth to have gone back again!

Unique Group Activity

Completed one of the VR Escape Rooms (Prison) with friends in July 2021 and we all really enjoyed our experience. Had a fantastic time and using VR was a completely new experience for some of the group so we were all a bit blown away by it! Had some initial teething issues setting up the game but were quickly fixed by staff who were friendly, professional and helpful. Although a bit pricey, I would recommend for a unique group experience. Looking forward to trying the other themed escape room games in the near future!

Birthday Party

Today my son had an amazing birthday party at Centre VR. Him and his 9 friends had a brilliant time. Now normally food at parties is cheap- squash, cheap crisps etc… not here! It was “boys help yourself to any branded drink from chiller, here’s your hot-dog.. help yourself to any branded bag of crisps… now go and help yourself to any ice cream from the freezer!” Just brilliant. Thank you Centre VR for such a chilled out, easy party! Highly recommended! 👍👍

We went for my daughters 13th birthday. The team couldn’t have been more helpful. Plenty of social distancing and lots of teenage competitiveness. Give yourself a few hours there. You’ll be glad if it. Definitely coming back. Thanks to the team for all your help. The kids really enjoyed themselves.

Super futuristic!

Took my daughter and a friend to try this VR place. I thought it would be cool, and it was SERIOUSLY cool, but what happily impressed me further was the wonderful staff. They were really good with the children and very helpful in assisting us. One young lad was so enthusiastic he's basically sold me the idea of getting a home kit. Clean, totally futuristic, and fun. Brilliant.

Fantastic fun

Came here with our two sons aged 10 and 12. We started using the virtual ride machine at the entrance which they both enjoyed. They the did one and a half hours be together. We could see all that was going on via big screens from the seating area and could also see the children. The thing that made it even better was the help and support given to us by Jamie and Sam. Very supportive very knowledgeable and extremely helpful and happy to do whatever the children needed to enhance this experience. An absolute joy to talk to them both can’t express enough how helpful they were and we will definitely come back

We visited the Centre VR as a large group - family of 4 x 2 Both families played against each other which made it so much fun. Its VR but it feels so real!! The graphics / CGI is so good.

Fantastic birthday event for my son’s 12th birthday

Centre VR could not have been any more helpful and accommodating. It was my youngest son’s birthday and from the moment we arrived till when we left, the staff were friendly and supportive. Even for me! The staff explained how everything works, obviously the kids took to it straight away! I however, took a bit longer to master, the staff helped the technophobe (me), and I was enjoying the catalogue of available games within 5 minutes. I was the last person to down the headset and controllers at the end of our session! Didn’t want it to stop. Visit again?? Hell yeah!

Christmas present for Dad and son

We had the best time all together at Centre VR. From booking the staff even on the phone were so helpful and gave us a great special offer on the Assassin's Creed game. When we arrived again all the staff were so friendly. My husband didn't know the game all that well but he and our older son soon got the hang of it and very vocally together had a great time. It was so funny to watch them climbing and risking their lives in the game. You can sit and watch both what they're doing on the screen and them. They finished the game before the session was up so the staff let our daughters have a go. They absolutely loved it. One went under the sea which she loved and the other became a virtual Santa. It's a really lovely atmosphere in the place as each of the staff get very involved and you quickly feel relaxed. We can't wait to go again.
