Virtual reality fans have found their new HQ at Virtual Planet, a new VR center set a stone’s throw from Châtelet. A place providing different experiences whether it’s arcade game, car simulations or even escape room. Let’s go, friends, shall we?

Discovering virtual reality in a new light… This is what Virtual Planet provides as a new VR center set a stone’s throw from the Halles. It also provides fans with a whole bunch of experiences such as arcade games, escape games, shooting games and other car simulators…. As many ways to discover virtual reality and to have fun with your family, friends or colleagues!

And in the heart of this center, a motto: innovation and quality! This is why the center enjoys the latest technologies in terms of virtual reality to provide visitors with a unique moment that is as immersive as possible. In terms of experience, 4 spaces are available (and a snack area), that are as accessible to beginners as for more skilled players:

  • Discovering virtual reality
    Beginners and other curious people have found the spot to discover VR via experiences meeting their expectations. A place with the latest technologies available to make visitors “discover the virtual reality world in the best conditions possible”. On the menu, contemplative experiences where the player does nothing for a “mind-blowing effect” and that gives a nice overview of the graphic and immersive capacities of the VR.

  • Racing Area
    Car race fans will be happy with the racing area providing simulators and other dynamic machines to make the driving experience as real as possible. Highlight of this area, a true Formula 1 in which players can seat and with a VR helmet on the head, pedals and wheel, they can try their hands at racing diving on different circuits.

  • Arcade area
    Games and arcade fans, unite! The Arcade area is literally was made for you and provides you with many softs as delightful as varied! All in all, about twenty experiences are available, and they have all been tested by the team and suit every age and level: Beat Saber, Face your Fears, Job Simulator, Fruit Ninja, Arizona Sunshine… As many games to discover for a unique experience!

  • Escape room area
    Escape rooms definitely are on the trend in Paris and VR centers get it! This is why Virtual Planet offers fans to try a VR escape room to make them try and solve many and varied enigmas. Visitors can try “La Mine”, an escape room in which you have to get out of a mine and find a treasure before turning into a zombie… what a program!

Different experiences we’ve had the chance to try… And Virtual Planet definitely plays its cards right in the Parisian world of Virtual Reality. Starting with the setting, urban and futuristic, game areas for an atypical immersion. Another particularity of the VR center, its open spaces for more freedom of movement (and avoid hitting the walls).

But the true asset of Virtual Planet is its racing area offering us to drive a Formula 1 in closed circuits and up to 6 players. A true asset to which is added a cutting-edge HTC Vive helmet and simulators put on cylinders for an unparalleled driving sensation.

Note a Snack area providing sweet treats created by the house, IceRolls, these ice creams coming from Asia, as well as hot beverages (coffees, teas, chocolates) and cold drinks. Another reason – if we needed another one – to give a go to Virtual Planet… Let’s book a time slot, friends, shall we?
