Virtual Reality Arcade opens in Northern Ireland


Alt Esc is the first of its kind to open in Ireland

The first true Virtual Reality Arcade has just opened its doors in Lurgan Craigavon, Co, Armagh. The new gaming experience operates out of Centrepoint Complex on the Portadown Road which should see it getting some good footfall.

Creator Chris Canavan told the Armaghi that the process of transforming the unit took about 6 months. He went on to say that the numbers so far have been very good with them doubling each week and contain repeat visitors.

A 1 hour session costs £20 with 2 hours costing £30 and birthday parties costing £120. Bookings can be made from the link below:


The experience looks very promising and with enough people Alt Esc should be able to offer new games and even better experiences as time goes on.
