Time Out says

Step into a virtual world and blow the crap out of it in the immersive team gaming experience

The future is here, kind of, with the first UK branch of this immersive VR gaming experience. In the US-based, celebrity-backed (Katy Perry, Justin Timberlake, and Will Smith are all investors) Sandbox VR, teams of two to six don helmets, shoulder rifles and step into a virtual world where they’re generally charged with zapping something or other – the games skew towards aggressive shoot ’em ups with names like 'Dragonfire’ and ‘Deadwood Valley’, although there are a couple of gentler games in the mix too like official Star Trek spin-off ‘Away Mission’ or the explicitly younger audiences-orientated ‘Curse of Davy Jones’. 

Older players will be able to sample the slightly random charms of Toni, who is, apparently, a robot bartender capable of making 80 drinks an hour. Anyone under the age of 18 requires somebody over the age of 18 to sign a waiver and remain in the building, but the adult can just cool their heels and get Toni to pour them a tall frosty one while the younger participants play – so good for teens and perhaps even older tweens so long as they have a supportive adult and can afford the not un-steep prices. The entire experience last around an hour, which includes ten minutes of instructions, half an hour of game, and ten minutes to grab a drink and watch highlights.
