Kingston’s First VR Experience Centre
Welcome to The VR Hut, Kingston’s first VR experience centre and your Portal To Adventure! If you’re new to VR (Virtual Reality) or are simply interested in learning a bit more about us then this is a great place to start! We’ve outlined everything you need to know, from things to know before arriving here to what sort of experiences you can play!
What To Expect
When you first get to The VR Hut you may be surprised. For us, creating the most immersive experience is key. That’s why our space is divided up into multiple pod-like areas for customers to occupy while they’re in their virtual experience. This gives players peace of mind that they aren’t going to run into one another. There’s also space in front of the pod for family and friends to watch as players wave, flail, and move about in their virtual experience. Not only that but wall-mounted monitors allow viewers a glimpse through the eyes of the player while they wait!
Your First Time Playing
Although it’s hilarious watching others play, there’s nothing better than experiencing virtual reality for yourself. Whether you are hunting down zombies, walking the plank, or playing party games with friends. Pulling that visor over your eyes for the first time and being transported into a new world will leave you in awe. Bill Gowsell put it best in his article when he said, “Have you ever seen characters being transported in Star Trek? One minute they are on a ship, and then suddenly they are standing on the surface of a distant planet. That’s what it felt like when the game loaded for my first session at The VR Hut”. You’ll be surprised how immersive these worlds actually are; it’s something everyone needs to experience for themselves.
We are constantly updating our experience library with new titles that we know you’re going to love; from horror & puzzle to multiplayer experiences, and everything in between. Our goal is to have something for everyone, no matter your age (VR isn’t just for younger generations)! You can even play some of our titles with friends in other pods through co-operative play. And don’t worry, if you’re not enjoying an experience you can simply load up another one at any time during your session. Switch out as many times as you’d like!

Booking Your Experience
Booking your experience at The VR Hut is easy, simply visit our booking page on our site then select the date and time you’d like to come. Once you’ve done that all you have to do is sign our waiver and show up on the day of your VR experience! If you’re more of the spontaneous type, we also accept walk-ins (subject to availability). Here’s where you can find us!
Here are a few things you should know:
- Don’t forget your socks! They’re required on our mats in order to keep things clean, but don’t worry, we sell some at a low cost if you happen to forget your own.
- There’s a maximum of two people per pod – you can share your time by each taking a turn. Sharing time is ideal if you just want to try it out with a friend.
- Your briefing session will begin promptly at your scheduled start time.
