Ten-year-old’s birthday
Apr. 2019 • Family
My son and 7 friends came for a birthday party here. We booked 6 booths for 1.5h, to be rotated among the 8 kids. With the exception of a 7-year-old and a 13-year-old, everyone was 9-10. I wasn’t able to find useful reviews, so I wasn’t really sure what to expect. But it looked exciting so we decided to go for it.

Facilities: Good. The place has a front desk with two leather sofas and a cooler (for cold drinks you want to buy). There are 10 (or so) booths for playing. It’s nothing impressive, but clean, tidy and comfortable.

The experience: Of the 8 kids there, one came out in tears after 10 mins, feeling dizzy. He was fine after a cold juice and some snacks, but didn’t want to go back in. The youngest kid, 7.5 years old, complained of dizziness after 25 minutes, recovered after 15 minutes, then asked to go back, played for 10 more minutes and quit. The rest of the group didn’t experience dizziness and played for 65 minutes or so. We had 30 minutes in the end to have snacks and cake, which we did in the reception’s open area. They set up a table for us. Our cake and drinks were stored in the drinks cooler/fridge until that time.

How things work: The staff helped each kid get set up in their booths. There is a helmet/glasses and a pair of handheld remotes. I was told they were going to play a group game. The staff spent about 20-25 minutes trying to explain things to the kids, helping them, going in/out of booths, etc. Eventually, a staff came to me and somewhat frustratedly told me they kept dropping out of the game inadvertently, so what did I want him to do? I was annoyed by this. My response was, well I don’t know, what do you suggest?? He suggested forcing all of them to play in one game. (Why, thank you for doing your job!) We did that, and it seemed everyone finally got the hang of it.

Conclusion: Would I have a birthday party here again? Yes, but for kids 12-13 or older. Six booths for 1.5 hour with 8 kids taking turns is the perfect setup, in my opinion. However, the staff told me the most ideal group size is 4 (to play a group game). I have nothing negative to say about the overall experience, but I felt the staff could have been more helpful and attentive. They were helpful and patient enough, but only acted when they were asked, instead of leading and guiding.

A lot of fun - for a sceptical first timer.
Feb. 2019 • Friends
My adult children really wanted to try this out but they were one short a full team, so I decided to give it a go. I had worried a little that my eyesight would be a problem as I couldn't wear my glasses inside the VR headset, but it all worked out well and the games were really fun. Communication between players was really good and the monitor was very quick to fix things when we had any problems. Well worth a try and less costly than I had expected.

Great VR experience
Mar. 2019 • Couples
Very modern installations, they count with the steam VIVE (which in my opinion is the best VR gadget), a couple of stations and lots of games. Me and my girlfriend had an amaizing time there.
Their fees are a bit high thou.
I would reccommend adding DOOM vr to their library also.

Brought my son here, and I ended up playing in the awesome arcade for hours. My son just loves this place and is now one of our favorite place to visit in Vancouver.

Great place to go for your first VR experience. I'd advise to not drink at all before coming in, as in my experience with friends, it seems like alcohol increases the risk of motion sickness.

Thank You For Your Response David. We do not recommend consuming alcohol before your Evolve VR experience because of the susceptibility of motion sickness for certain games with the consumption of alcohol.

I never play video games, it's just never been an interest of mine but this experience was one of a kind! You feel as if you are really apart of the surroundings and lots of fun
