HoldOut! Bunker Defense Virtual Reality

The Bunker Defense VR Arena accepts up to 4 people at a time. It uses state-of-the-art VR and 4D-technology to let patrons have an immersive presence inside a digital world while engaging in simulated rifle target practice with artificial intelligent (AI) enemies. Patrons wear high-tech head-mounted VR goggles that allow them to look around in any direction while their simulated rifles provide haptic feedback to simulate recoil as they fire at their targets. 4D effects such as floor vibrations and wind add to the realism of being on a virtual battlefield. The experience is collaborative, and patrons compete with each other within the arena.
