OTHERWORLD takes people from our city centre locations into the metaverse in premium, multi-sensory virtual reality!
Make a booking, arrive at our futuristic venue and step into your own private multi-sensory VR immersion pod before departing to an alternate reality.
Arrive on our LUXURY VIRTUAL RESORT, a stunning VR island with four distinct seasons, and let the adventure begin!
Take a stroll along the beach and feel the summer sun on your back, or keep cool in the snow as you play with the penguins in winter.
Choose from 16 different singleplayer and multiplayer VR games and experiences across a variety of genres as you and your friends traverse the virtual world.
We know there's no I in team, but sometimes it's ok to focus on the M-E. Battle it out against your friends and compete in intense multiplayer free-for-alls or take a relaxing solo trip through the Antarctic - it's completely up to you!
During your experience you’ll earn DreamCoin, which can be used to get discounts at the full-service bars nestled into our futuristic VR centres.
Don't have a VR session booked? No problem! Come in for a drink and enjoy our range of beers, wines, cocktails, mock-tails and softs!
OTHERWORLD is an immersive VR experience where you can see, hear and feel the virtual world around you!
Experience VR with our mind-blowing Immersion Pod technology.
With the power of 360 degree heat, wind and rumble effects, we offer an unparalleled level of realism, so that you feel every blast, breeze and bass drop!
Traverse a digital island paradise, home to 16 of the best single and multiplayer VR experiences available. Whether you want to explore faraway lands, shoot zombies or compete against your friends, you're sure to find an experience that you enjoy!
All of our VR centres, including London, Birmingham and Manchester, feature our immersion pods, pairing our unique technology with top-of-the-line, commercial-grade VR headsets, backed by a huge amount of graphical rendering power.
OTHERWORLD is like a virtual theme park experience. When you enter the virtual world, you're in control!
You'll be able to choose from a selection of some of the best VR games and experiences available. Once you've decided what you want to play, just enter the relevant portal, hit "start" and you'll be on the way!
When you're in VR, you're free to try as many of our experiences as you want. We generally recommend between 3 and 5 different VR games, depending on whether you book a 40, 55 or 70 minute VR experience with us.
Part of a group but can't decide what you all want to play? No problem! You can split off into smaller teams or decide to go solo, without losing contact with one another!
To get the most out of OTHERWORLD, we recommend reviewing our VR experiences and games and planning what you'd like to try out in advance.
We have a great mix of single and multiplayer VR experiences for a variety of skill levels, so whether you're a VR pro or a total newbie, you'll be able to find something that works for you!
Make sure you stick around after your VR session to check out the pictures from your experience and receive your DreamCoin - OTHERWORLD's virtual currency.
The better you play, the more you experience, the more DreamCoin you earn. This currency can then be spent at the bar on real-world drinks and snacks!
Credited to and stored on your profile, your DreamCoin accumulates over time, so if you don't spend it on your first visit, you can build your fortune and spend it on your tenth!
So make sure to shoot as many zombies as possible; there are pints at stake!
Our prices vary depending on the date, time, and session length you select. The cheapest sessions are at off-peak times, while Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays typically cost more.
Check out the Bookings page to see all of our available times and their prices.

The headsets we use are designed for use by adults, so might be a looser fit on children. Please be aware that we also operate as a full-service bar, so the atmosphere may be less suitable for children after 6pm.
Yes! Depending on your venue, OTHERWORLD can host between 10 - 18 simultaneous players!
In VR you can see and hear each other in the form of virtual avatars.
You are then free to explore the island and jump into any of our multiplayer games together, or break away from the group and try a solo adventure!

When your group arrives at OTHERWORLD, you will be greeted by one of our Allies, who will log your arrival and ensure everyone’s DreamPort is set up. This will act as your profile, allowing you to customise your avatar and earn DreamCoin, as well as give you all the necessary info about your journey!
When it's time to depart, each member of your party will enter their own 'Immersion Room', complete with dynamic heat, wind and rumble effects to ensure that you feel every blast, bullet and bass drop!
Depending on which venue you book into, up to 18 guests can play at the same time. Larger groups will be divided and travel to the OTHERWORLD in turns, allowing the rest of your party to enjoy the psychedelic light-show, and relax with some drinks in our futuristic Departure Lounge.
The experience is great for groups of any size!
Once you enter your immersion rooms, you'll be able to see and hear your partner in the form of a virtual avatar - as if they were right next to you!
You will then be free to explore the OTHERWORLD together and choose from our selection of Multiplayer games, or split up and go on solo adventures.
Not to worry though, you'll still be able to talk to each other throughout your entire journey, even if you do different things!
Check out our VR experiences to see player counts for each game!
You don’t need to pre-select any games/experiences at all!
All guests are loaded onto our fully-explorable, VR island, which acts as a hub-world between all of the games and experiences we offer.
If you find yourself hopping into a game you’re not too keen on you can hop right back to the island and find another - the only limit is your time!

OTHERWORLD is accessible for most standard-sized wheelchairs. We have a ramp to help people into their Immersion Pods if required, and a WC on each site with ample disabled access and basic equipment.
We can provide guidance on which experiences will be most fun for people of different physical abilities.
Our virtual reality headsets leave enough room for most glasses to be worn underneath.
One of our hosts will be happy to adjust your headset for the best fit.
The experience is accessible if you are pregnant.
Please be aware that virtual reality can be disorientating. Some of the games in the OTHERWORLD are more intense than others, so we generally recommend taking it easy, especially if you haven't tried VR before.
Please feel free to ask our staff for recommendations on which experiences will be most suitable!
If you're still unsure that VR is suitable for you, we recommend seeking the advice of a doctor before visiting.
We do not recommend the experience if you have epilepsy.
VR has the potential to trigger seizures, fainting, or dizziness.
Please let a member of staff know before your experience if you or a member of your party suffers from epilepsy or a similar condition.
