Forget the photo booth - 5 ways VR makes a party unforgettable

Thinking about throwing a party and looking for something a little different? Entertainment options for parties have been the same for years, but it's time to upgrade from the overdone photo booth and bring something truly unique for everyone to enjoy. Here are the top 5 reasons why choosing virtual reality is the perfect choice to take your event to the next level:

1. There is a VR experience for everybody

You don't need to be a gamer to enjoy virtual reality. Whether someone wants to explore underwater worlds, create amazing 3D drawings, or battle alien spaceships, there is something for everyone. We have handled corporate events with hundreds of participants of all ages to birthday parties for children as young as 8, and everyone loves it.

2. Just as fun to watch as it is to play

Although VR is an unbelievable experience to try for yourself, some people would rather just sit back and enjoy their drink. Even then, bringing virtual reality to your party is guaranteed to keep everyone laughing. Who doesn't enjoy watching their friends flailing their arms wildly at invisible objects? The crowd can also see exactly what the person in VR is experiencing on the TV behind them, so everyone gets involved in the fun.

3. A new experience for just about everyone

At this point in time VR has been experienced only by a select few early adopters - 99% of people have yet to experience truly immersive virtual reality. Unlike the phone versions of VR we utilize high-end hardware and software to create a room-scale environment, an experience that let's you move around in space and that you have to try for yourself to believe.

4. Worry-free fun

There is absolutely nothing you need to worry about. At VR Arcade NOLA, we handle the equipment, software, games, set up, and take down. Our experienced staff will be on site to help explain the available experiences and ensure that everyone has an outstanding time. We also have experience with events throughout Louisiana, not only in New Orleans. Whether you live in Lafayette, Baton Rouge, Mobile Alabama, or anywhere in between, we have you covered.

5. Branded and customized content available

Do you want to show a custom video clip to everyone before they jump into the VR games and experiences? For those looking for a more personalized touch, VR Arcade NOLA offers the option of customized content and branded solutions. You can watch any regular video file in virtual reality, or even elect to have a customized 360 degree video created for your party to enjoy. For larger events looking for branded content, there are plenty of options to make sure your brand is front and center.

The Warehouse, a popular coworking space in New Orleans, recently booked us to help out with one of their "Freelance Friday" happy hours. Watch the below video to see why Stephen chose to incorporate Virtual Reality and VR Arcade NOLA into their latest event.
