Play Factore opens a brand-new virtual reality gaming attraction, creating another great experience for families visiting Manchester’s home of adventure, Beyond.

With both single and double player VR experiences and three gaming scenarios to choose from, budding explorers can transport themselves across time and space as they gear up to play. Choosing between the Star Defence, Clock Tower and Alien Invasion games, players are required to complete tasks and perform actions in a battle for the ultimate high-score during the five-minute long adventure.

Making the experience as realistic as possible, each player will enter the VR room with a sensory floor which vibrates and moves as the player advances through the game, creating an interactive experience unlike any other.

Of the launch, Asiya Durrani, General Manager , said ‘’We’re really excited to bring our brand-new VR experience – each game brings a new world of adventure to our customers. The VR attraction has really proven a hit so far and we are looking forward to adding more games and experiences to our offering.’’

Phil Murphy, Asset Manager at U+I PLC, said ‘’BEYOND is well and truly living up to its name as Manchester’s home of adventure – and we’re delighted that the adventure continues into the virtual world thanks to the addition of the VR experience at PLAY FACTORE. We’re excited to see what else is in store.’’

Players must be 1.25 metres or above to participate. The virtual reality attraction is open on weekends, bank holidays and school holidays at PLAY FACTORE and costs £5 on top of the general £12.95 admission fee for 5-16 year olds. PLAY FACTORE are also offering an ‘ULTIMATE All-Inclusive package’, which includes admission for once child, a run on their EPIC zip-wire and one VR experience for just £18.95 – a deal you virtually cannot say no to!
