What is a VR escape room adventure with a live host?
Our VR escape room adventures are a mix of escape room, immersive theater, and roleplaying game. We think VR is at its best when it’s with others and we love how coming together for a showtime creates play. It’s designed to be fun for VR novices and experts. When you show up for an adventure in VR, you’ll be greeted by a real live person who will be your host, guide, and at times, your nemesis. You’ll have to work together to solve puzzles and fight your way to the end game before time runs out. For those who love VR, escape rooms, cooperative board games, multiplayer games, Dungeons & Dragons, and immersive theater— VR adventures are for you.
Who will join me on my adventure?
We want you to go on an adventure with your friends and family. When you buy a showtime, you’ve bought a private experience for your party. We will send you instructions on how you can invite your friends along for the adventure where they can join you from the comfort of their homes. We recommend you have at least 1 VR capable friend in mind who can help make up your party. It’s not as much fun on your own. We can work with a party size from 2 to 4, and the more you have, the more fun it is.
What do we need to play?
Our VR adventures work on the Oculus Quest, and will work on the Oculus Rift, Oculus Rift S, and HTC Vive, the Valve Index, and Windows Mixed Reality (with Steam VR) very soon! You’ll need to find team mates who have the proper equipment. We do not support PSVR but have it on our roadmap.
Our adventures are designed to be a seated or standing experience.
If I have multiple Oculus Quest devices that use the same account, will it work?
Yes! When you sign up, you’ll get an invite in your email. After accepting, you’ll be able to download our adventure app on both devices.
If you are using multiple Quest devices in the same household, we recommend using headphones or playing in separate rooms to avoid microphone feedback.
How much does it cost?
A showtime with a live host costs $100 all-in for 2 to 4 players. So if you gather a team of 4, it’s equivalent to $25/person. For a limited time to celebrate our opening, use coupon code OG-LAB-RAT to get your adventure for $50.
Ok! I’m interested. How does this actually work?
When you buy a private showtime, we’ll provide an onboarding URL you can send out to your teammates. Once they fill it out, we’ll get them setup with onboarding info.
If you’re using an Oculus Quest, we’ll ask for your Oculus account email that you use with your device. We’ll send you an invite to be an early release user so you can download the Adventure Lab app in your Preview Apps.
Finally, you’ll receive a 3-digit game code that you’ll enter in the lobby of the app at the time of your adventure. You’ll be granted access to the V.I.A. 5 minutes before hand and your mission briefing will start 5 minutes after the hour. We ask that you show up on time.
