Octane Raceway to Debut Virtual Reality Attraction Memorial Day
Velocity VR is first free-roam virtual gaming arena to open in Western US
Scottsdale, AZ – April 24, 2017 – Octane Raceway, a premium destination for kart racing and experiential entertainment, is bringing world-class virtual reality gaming to the Phoenix area. The Velocity VR attraction, powered by Zero Latency, will launch Memorial Day weekend. This is the first free-roam multiplayer virtual reality arena to open in the Western United States.
This new permanent attraction will occupy 3,500 square feet within Octane Raceway’s existing 65,000 square foot facility. Velocity VR will have no physical walls or obstacles within the play area, meaning players have complete maneuverability to walk, explore, and fight their way through virtual terrains. The VR experience will be 45 minutes in length with a 15 minute mission briefing and two 15 minute games. The attraction will be geared for players ages 13 and older.
The first game offering will be Survival, which transports teams of up to six players into the middle of a zombie outbreak. Teams will work together to build barriers, fight off the undead and hold position until the extraction team arrives. The game will require teamwork, but the player with the most points will come out on top. Additional games will be added later this year.
“Octane Raceway is committed to the most exciting and immersive experiences for our customers that leave them awestruck and wanting more. Velocity VR falls in line with that commitment, and will truly be a unique and memorable attraction,” says Scott Sanders, CEO of Octane Raceway.
As a premiere Scottsdale entertainment destination since 2003, Octane Raceway offers guests the thrill of racing electric karts that travel at speeds of up to 45 MPH on an indoor/outdoor track, a full-service bar & grill, an arcade, mini bowling and an outdoor patio for socializing and playing games. Octane is open 365 days a year.
