Gravity Wandsworth Launches Sensational Free-Roaming VR Experience

Gravity Wandsworth, the Department Store of Fun, is launching their latest gaming experience – Hologate, and it will be arriving this summer. If you want an adreneline rush and to feel alive, then the high-octane gaming offered by Hologate is for you.

Hologate is a fully immersive, VR experience where up to four players free-roam in a designated arena, taking on fearsome enemies, face epic battles and endure treacherous terrains. The gaming areas are open spaces so other guests can watch the action before taking the plunge for themselves. Plus, although you’ll be working in a team of four, the incredible tech allows you to battle against teams from around the world.

Arena experience – prepare for battle!

At Gravity Wandsworth there will be two Hologate experiences available. With Arena players are transported into incredible virtual reality worlds where they can take on zombies, dragons or robots. Players can even take part in thrilling virtual dance battles – so you can show off your swag, your krumping or your breaking in all its glory. There are over 15 different games to play in the Arena experience giving you plenty of challenges to tackle; escape The Prison, be a cyborg on a mission to steal data from a powerful corporation, have a snowball fight with a yeti on a frozen lake, prevent nuclear war, or join the SLUGTERRA universe, with its anime style graphics, to shoot up the slugs across the multi-platform world where players also use fart clouds and slime to defeat their enemies.

In a first for the UK, the Blitz experience focusses on the game Hyper GP, the multiplayer racing game where you pilot futuristic vehicles. Rather than roaming around a room with a headset, players sit on awesome looking motion simulators. The machine turns and twists as you move your virtual vehicle, with up to 1m vertical lift and 30 degree range of motion in every direction. You can also easily switch between single axis motion for racing to dual axis motion for flying! It’s insanely good! Set in the year 2066, humanity has created super speedy hover vehicles which are used on race circuits across deserts, through ice caves and around interplanetary debris.

Founder Michael Harrison says, “We’re really proud to be the first to bring Hologate to a London audience. Gravity is, again, at the forefront of competitive socialising fun. From e-karting and Hologate to having your lunch served by a robot, there’s not a location in the UK where you can access all these activities under one roof.”
