FAQ

What is VR - Virtual Reality?

Virtual Reality, or VR for short, refers to the representation and simultaneous perception of reality and its physical properties in a real-time computer-generated, interactive, virtual environment.

 

Is VRlebnis comparable to VR from the Playstation, the PC or another console?

No, not at all. Our state-of-the-art, high-quality Hologate VR system is equipped with six high-performance PC's. This tens of thousands of euros expensive system is not comparable to home VR systems. The games of our system are offered exclusively by us, are always up to date and are not available on other platforms. Our games are always up to date and looking for the same in Hamburg. You are part of the VR experience with us.

 

Does one get sick while playing? Is motion sickness an issue?

The game developers have gone to great lengths in designing the games to eliminate the confusion of spatial perception found in some Steam / PlayStation games at home or in the movies. So far nobody has experienced Motion Sickness, because the state-of-the-art technology optimally matches the real and virtual movements, making your VR experience real. If you suffer from severe travel sickness, it may cause discomfort. If you get dizzy while playing, close your eyes and inform our staff.

 

Is VR right for me?

We promise you a lot of fun! Whether for old, young, fat, thin, for gamers or not. So far everyone was thrilled with the experience!

 

How is the game controlled?

You move on an area of 25 square meters (playing area for 4 players). You can bend over and move freely in your playing field. The Hologate runs with the HTC Vive, which is attached with a cable pull in the gate.

 

From how many years can you book the VR experience?

We recommend a minimum age of 6 years. Please note that each game has its own age recommendation. You can see these in the description of the games.

 

Do I have to pay attention as a spectacle wearer?

Yes! Since unfortunately not every eyeglass frame fits under the VR glasses and it can also lead to damage to the eyeglass frame when it is worn, we recommend that people with a pronounced lack of vision wear contact lenses. However, if you have a slight visual impairment, you do not need to worry, then you can enjoy the full VR experience without glasses. In case of severe visual impairment, we recommend a visit exclusively with contact lenses. If you want to wear your glasses under the VR glasses, do so at your own risk!

 

Can I play alone?

Yes, that really does not make much sense. Our games are all designed and programmed to 2 - 4 players. The booking is made per playing area. If you want to play 1 game completely alone, you would have to book the board completely. So you see, that somehow makes no sense. Grab your best colleague and come by as a team.

 

What else needs to be considered?

Updos and high heels are not recommended! Strongly drunk persons are forbidden to play! For our female visitors, it is advisable to visit us only discreetly make-up. Of course you can come as you like and feel best. Just keep in mind that you will wear the VR glasses directly on the skin or face, and if necessary, sweat it.

 

Health Warning

Interrupt the game when dizziness, nausea, fatigue or headache occur. Some people may experience epileptic seizures when exposed to specific light frequencies, flickering light sources, or geometric shapes and patterns. Certain frequencies of light in TV screen backgrounds or in VR games can cause an epileptic seizure in these individuals. Ask your doctor if you or any of your family members have epilepsy before entering the VR Center. Cancel the game immediately and contact our team if any of the following symptoms occur during play: blurred vision, eye and muscle twitching, impaired consciousness, loss of orientation, involuntary movement and convulsions.

 

3D health advice

Some people may experience discomfort (such as overexertion or exhaustion of the eyes or nausea) when watching 3D videos or playing stereoscopic 3D video games on 3D TVs. If you experience such discomfort, you should immediately stop playing until the symptoms ease. In general, we recommend that you do not use the VR games for a long time without interruptions and take a break of 15 minutes per hour of play. However, when watching 3D video or playing stereoscopic 3D video games, the length and frequency of necessary breaks vary depending on the person. If the symptoms persist, consult a doctor.

 

VR health warning

Some people experience kinetosis, nausea, loss of orientation, blurred vision, or other discomfort when watching virtual reality content. If you experience such symptoms, stop use immediately and remove the VR headset.
