What is a virtual reality escape room

Compared to a traditional real-life escape room, Virtual Reality Escape Rooms give players endless possibilities and larger-than-life experiences which are just not possible in a brick-and-mortar escape room.  

Imagine crawling through ventilation tunnels, stopping giant fan blades to get through them safely, using a rope trolley to get through a flooded cave, or climbing up through the inside of an ancient temple! 

Our Virtual Reality (VR) Escape rooms are not video games – they are an intuitive experience made for everyone, from 14 to 100 years old. If you know how to talk, listen, walk, and grab objects, you have all the skills needed to play VR! The experiences are non-violent and mainly focused on cooperation between players. 

You and your team of 2-6 players will need to work together to find the clues, solve the puzzles and escape the VR experience within a given time limit! This experience is completely safe while offering unrivaled excitement and fun. You are not locked in anywhere and can walk and move around freely in the designated playing area. 

An incredible and exciting activity for dates, family days out, and team building.

ESCAPE THE LOST PYRAMID

Welcome to the Animus.

February 1928. An expedition led by Sir Beldon Frye disappears somewhere in the Sinai Peninsula. A team of four and a dozen indigenous porters. They were looking for the Lost Pyramid of Nebka… Or more precisely “something” that should have been there. They were never seen again.

Using the simulation reconstructed from their DNA memory, your team will put themselves in the shoes of the explorers.

Find out what happened to the expedition. And more importantly: locate what they were looking for.

VR Escape Room FAQs

Bookings

From the 31st of January 2022, as per Government regulations, we will need to see proof of vaccination against COVID-19 if you wish to enter our premises. More information can be found at: Proof of COVID-19 vaccination to expand state-wide from Monday 31 January (www.wa.gov.au)

We strongly recommend you book before visiting us as bookings have priority over walk-ins and wait times for walk-ins can be longBooking in advance means you won’t need to wait for long. Payment is made at the time of booking and is non-refundable. We understand that things happen sometimes, so we’re happy to reschedule your booking if we receive the required notice, and will do our best to accommodate you. A $10 admin fee is charged when checking in for each time the booking is rescheduled. To cancel or reschedule a booking, we need to be informed during trading hours, and a minimum of 6 hours before your booking. This is so we can open time slots and allow other customers to book the time slots you previously had reserved.

 

As we run back-to-back sessions, we cannot always start a session late as it will cause the next session to run behind schedule and other customers will be left waiting. If it is possible, we can try to start a bit later. However, this cannot be guaranteed. If we are unable to get you started, bookings are forfeited. Please make sure you come on time! You should arrive at least 15 minutes before your scheduled session for check-in and orientation. If you are late you will have less time in the VR experience and there will probably not be enough time to finish your game.

 

 

Headsets cannot be shared during a game sessions with others - each player requires their own headset. You cannot swap players halfway through an experience. Ticket prices are per player.

 

 

The VR escape room time limit is 60 minutes! The whole booking goes for about an hour as we need to go through our VR induction process and give players some time to familiarize themselves with the controls, playing area, and VR mechanics. You have 60 minutes to finish the game although the aim is to solve the riddle as soon as possible to get on top of the leaderboard.

 

 

Tickets cost $48 per person!

 

 

Bookings are live events and are non-refundable. Your booking reserves a number of spots in our booking calendar, stopping other customers from over-booking. However, we understand that unforeseen circumstances can occur and offer a credit for canceled or rescheduled bookings which are valid for 1 year. To cancel or reschedule a booking, we need to be informed during trading hours, and a minimum of 6 hours before your booking. This is so we can open time slots and allow other customers to book the time slots you previously had reserved. 

A $10 admin fee is charged when checking in for each time the booking is rescheduled. 

If we do not receive the required notice of cancellation or wanting to reschedule, credits are forfeited.

 

 

Our Virtual Reality Escape rooms are only suitable for players that are at least 14 years old. Children under the age of 14 are not permitted to play.

 


Whilst we try to accommodate as many people as possible, VR escape rooms are not suitable for everyone.

Players must be 14 years old or older to play the VR escape rooms.

Anyone with the following medical conditions will not be able to play, to ensure their safety and the safety of others:

  • People with reduced mobility, or that are physically handicapped (You need to be able to walk around unassisted for up to 1 hour while wearing a headset. You will also need full use of both hands and legs),
  • Epilepsy or any similar conditions,
  • Hearing-impaired.


VR escape rooms are not recommended for people with the following conditions. Please consult your healthcare professional before making a booking:

  • Claustrophobia,
  • Heart conditions,
  • Pregnant,
  • Motion sickness,
  • Because the experience is very visual, visual impairment is a limitation.


Players under the influence of drugs or alcohol will not be permitted to play and may be refused entry to the venue. Players who are refused entry are not entitled to credits or refunds for their booking.

 

You can play with 2, 4 or 6 people at the same time.

 

 

VR escape rooms are a multiplayer experience. You cannot escape alone! You will only share the experience with the other players who are part of your booking. If you are booking for a larger group (e.g. 6 players) you will be split into smaller teams as the maximum players per VR escape room is 4.

 

 

You should arrive at the venue at least 15 minutes before your scheduled booking for check-in and orientation.

 

 

You will only need to tell us your name when checking in. As some of the games have a minimum age requirement, proof of age may be requested so it is best to bring along a form of identification (e.g. driver’s license or student ID). If you are under 18 years old, you will need your parent or guardian to sign a waiver form for you and you will need to bring it with you. You do not need to bring anything else.

 

General

 

No, VR is very safe! If you listen to the instructions and follow the rules while participating in the game or experience, it is completely safe.

 

 

Yes, definitely! You do not need to be a gamer or a technology geek. Our VR experiences are intuitive and made for everyone, from ages 14 to 100. Our VR Escape Rooms have different themes and levels but are mainly focused on cooperation between players. Our staff will give you a briefing before you start the experience, and they will be there the whole time if you need anything.

 

 

Absolutely – we will give you a short briefing when you arrive which covers general instructions and safety information. If it’s your first time playing and you’re unsure, we’ll run you through the equipment. First-time players are strongly encouraged to go through a short VR tutorial where they will learn how to use the controllers and navigate in the virtual environment. If you have any questions during your experience, we’re are always there to help. Either way, we are sure you will be an expert in no time!

 

 

At Glowing Rooms, we use the latest HTC VIVE PRO 2s which are currently recognized as the best technology for room-scale VR!

We are also equipped with the top-notch computing power to support high FPS 360° VR resolution, surround sound, and state-of-the-art tracking capabilities.

 

 

The simple answer is YES. Hygiene is incredibly important to us. The headset’s cushioning and the controllers are wiped down with Anti-Bacterial Wipes after each use. A new single-use disposable face shield is applied to each headset before every session. Hand sanitizer and wipes are readily available for staff and customers.

 

 

It is made for teams! You cannot escape alone. The key to a successful escape is to communicate and work as a team because everyone has a role to play.

 

 

Our experiences involve movement and activity, and you will be on your feet for an hour, so please wear comfortable clothes and appropriate footwear. That means no high heels or shoes that could hinder your movement. Pinned-up hairstyles are not recommended because of the VR headset strap.

 

 

Our game master is constantly monitoring your experience, and if requested can provide hints that assist with your team’s progression.

 

 

In your headset there will be a visual perimeter reflecting the real-life limitations of the playing area – this will help you to understand your space and keep you safe.

 

 

Our VR area is all on one level but inside the game you may find yourself walking on elevated platforms, or climbing up ropes. Our experiences can be challenging for people with a strong fear of height. However, they can also be incredibly rewarding to play!

 

 

Some technology and operators don’t have the latest technology or equipment. A combination of high latency, low frame rate, and poor technology is what causes dizziness or motion sickness. At Glowing Rooms, we use the latest in high-quality equipment, which results in either low or zero latency!

The experiences we offer are carefully selected to minimize the risk of dizziness and motion sickness. We only use premium games, developed by internationally recognized industry leaders, so the likelihood of motion sickness or dizziness occurring is rather low.

However, if you are susceptible to motive sickness, please be aware that there may be some discomfort. Our game master is always there to help you and answer any of your questions.

 

 

If you don’t feel comfortable or you want to stop the experience for whatever reason, you just need to tell your game master and they will pull you out of the game.

 

Accessibility

 

The VR headsets fit comfortably over most glasses without a problem. However, glasses come in many different shapes and sizes, and not all glasses may fit under the VR headset. It is best to wear contact lenses instead (if possible) to avoid damaging your glasses or the VR headset. There is no small print text or fine details in the VR experience. People with light visual impairment may not need their glasses.

 

 

During your game or experience, you will be wearing headphones that are part of the VR headset. In-ear hearing aids should be okay to fit under the headphones. However, we may refuse gameplay to some external hearing aids due to the risk of damaging the headset.

 

About The Venue

 

So that you can enjoy your game without having to worry about your belongings, we have secure lockers at the venue. We require a $5 refundable cash bond for locker keys.

 

Yes, we have tables and chairs in our cafe area where people can enjoy some refreshments or just sit and wait. We also have the amazing 3D Mini-golf available at the venue, which also usually takes about an hour!
