Step into a fantasy world of immersive gaming at Manchester’s new VR DNA experience

An incredible new VR gaming experience has opened in Manchester today.

Every fancied fighting your way out of a zombie apocalypse, defending your castle against monster invaders with a crossbow, or flying around shooting your friends with futuristic laser guns?

Well, now you can, thanks to VR DNA which opens in Manchester today on Brown Street.

The VR experience is bringing a unique entertainment experience that will take visitors on unimaginable journeys to fantasy worlds, horror, and music.

Log in with your headset and virtual controllers, and transport yourself to another world of fantasy and immersive gaming.

The experience is designed for novices and experienced VR gamers alike.

The venue will have the capacity to host up to 16 virtual sessions (19 people) at one time, providing hours of gameplay with an unparalleled immersive experience for gamers.

With 70 games to choose from, visitors can enjoy solo and group virtual reality modes, including Skyfront VR, Ragnarok, Elven Assassin, and Arizona Sunshine.

The Free Roam arcade offers longer-form escape rooms, explorative experiences, and horror game modes for up to four players, such as Hospital Of Horror, Space Station Tiberia, and Depths Of Osiris.

The Manchester venue has a game for everyone, whether you want to solve an escape room, explore the depths of the deep blue ocean, or save the Earth from an intergalactic disaster.

DNA VR is perfect for family day trips, evenings out with friends, corporate parties, and even date nights, with a host of famous faces having already enjoyed the experience, including Olivia and Alex Bowen, Idris Elba, KSI, and Hollywood royalty, Chris Hemsworth (and his kids!).

The venue is also fully equipped with a minibar, serving an array of drinks in the beautifully decorated and futuristic foyer, for those requiring a little Dutch courage before taking on a horde of zombies.

DNA VR CEO, Alexander Tsyurupa, said, “Whether you want a fantastical adventure or to solve a series of mysteries, we have hundreds of games for every interest and passion.

“People want new immersive experiences, and DNA VR’s leading technology enables visitors to enjoy thrilling gameplay.”

DNA VR is an interactive and communal encounter that debuted in July 2017 in a modest subterranean space in Camden, establishing itself as the premier and most extensive virtual reality arcade in London.

The establishment rapidly gained popularity, thanks to enthusiastic patrons who spread the word. Despite the company’s evolution, one aspect remained constant: an emphasis on customer satisfaction and the social component.

DNA VR was the recipient of the Tripadvisor Travellers’ Choice Award twice in 2019 and 2020. In 2020, the company broadened its horizons by opening two new locations in Hammersmith and Battersea Power Station.

And now it has landed in the greatest city in the world, Manchester.
