Our blog post is a bit early this week because we're so excited to launch our racing simulators! Bookings are live RIGHT NOW for our special Memorial Day hours beginning at noon and all normal hours after. The best part? You can get a 20% discount when booking any station or package that includes racing with the code RACEVIRTUAL (valid on spots through June 30).
We'll try to answer all your questions below, but if you have more, don't hesitate to get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What is included?
We have 2 stations with adjustable seats, force feedback wheels, and pedals. Both stations run Project Cars 2, from Slightly Mad Studios. This game has an incredible number of customization options, including tracks, vehicles, weather conditions, types of race styles, and more.
Do I have to understand racing rules and types to play?
No, of course not! If you do have specific requests, then we can work with you to customize what you'd like. But if you just want to hop in and race, then we have pre-set options ready. As long as you can turn the wheel and push the pedals, you'll be good to go.
Can I share the station?
You sure can. We usually set up the stations to take 5-10 minutes per race, so there are natural break points for you to switch. However, if you want to race each other rather than computerized opponents, you will need to book both stations since you both will need a headset. As usual, each station is hooked to a TV so that everyone outside can enjoy seeing both the person playing and the in-headset view.
Will this make me sick?
There is a slightly higher risk of VR sickness with these stations than with some of our other options. However, if you let us know, we can make adjustments that are likely to help you enjoy the session, such as camera position and increasing audio volume. Our policy is that if you have no one to swap in and if you let us know within 5 minutes of beginning that you don't want to finish the session, then we will give you a voucher for a regular station.
How do I book?
These stations are listed as "racing stations" on our bookings page. You can also choose to book them as part of a party package: a 4 pack w/racing will get you 2 standard and 2 racing stations, a 6 pack w/racing is 4 standard and 2 racing, and an 8 pack is our full venue of 6 standard and 2 racing.
