Q. Why Redline VR?

A. We’ve thought of everything.

Our nine bays-NINE!- are arranged in an open design that’s ideal for parties or parents who might want to stand at the bar and talk while still keeping an eye on their children. Our top-of-the-line equipment (HTC Vive Pro) sports an 80% increase in graphic resolution, removing any fear of nausea caused by blurrier/earlier headsets. We project the action and light the player so they’re Instagram ready. While we have access to every game, we curate the list, so you only get the best. Plus, our proprietary Mixed Reality Escape room and VR Drink Experiences make it better IRL while others are taking a turn in VR.
