How to Open a VR Theme Park or Virtual Reality Arcade
8 Steps to Opening Your Own VR Room
Park space and size or VR arcade game room
The first and most crucial step in opening a Virtual Reality park or arcade is to carefully consider the location. This involves identifying the appropriate cadastral category, selecting a suitable location, and determining the necessary size for the space. Unlike a traditional amusement park, you don’t need a very large area and that’s the first advantage.
When it comes to your Business Plan, Virtual Play offers a free service to all affiliates to help with its drafting. In terms of location, a Virtual Reality park or arcade can be situated within a shopping center or even a multi-storey building, either in a central area or on the outskirts, depending on the desired size, atmosphere, and revenue expectations. The VR game machines and simulators are typically positioned within defined areas, with perimeters often marked on the ground to ensure each station has sufficient space (on average 9-10 square meters). It’s crucial to allow for adequate freedom of movement to prevent players from colliding with each other during an immersive experience.
