Since 6 November 2021 the following measures have been taken in all arcades.

1) Upon entering, the Host will inquire about the health of the guests.

2) QR-code with ID is mandatory and will be scanned and checked by to host. If (als by one person of the group) this turns red or someone can't or won't show it then a refund is possible. Please inform info@lightningvr.com for a refund.

3) The Host will ensure that guests observe a distance of one and a half meters to each other and staff.

4) During the play session you can see each other in VR. We have a total space of approximately 200 m2, so there is enough space to avoid each other.

6) The toilets are equipped with a push button so that other guests know that it is occupied.

7) In addition to the fact that we have always clean the VR gear thoroughly after every session / group, we now also do this with our furniture / arcade games in the lobby and toilets.

Your session starts at the booked time. The first half hour consists of warming up with our Single Player VR. But of course there is more! The second half hour is for our main game. During and after this hour you can get drinks & bites at our bar.

If you want to reserve for more than 5/6 players you need several, continuous sessions.

If you book for less than the maximum amount of people in your slot, it is possible that other players participate in the same session. If you prefer to keep the session exclusive, select the "no random players" option when making your reservation.

Because of the safety rules and the necessary gear, the minimum age is set at 8 years.

You must be able to walk around during the entire game with a backpack on your back, VR glasses on your head and being able to use both hands. For this reason, our experience is (currently and unfortunately) not wheelchair friendly.
