Quebec shopping centre Alexis Nihon is jumping into virtual reality with the launch of its Virtual Reality Adventure Lounge.
Alexis Nihon is a multi-use complex comprised of over 100 stores, two office towers and an apartment building. The Virtual Reality Adventure Lounge, or ‘Aventure Virtuelle,’ will run exclusively from October 5th to October 30th.
The site will feature the new Samsung Gear VR, which owners of a Samsung Galaxy phone can use to access VR apps and games.
“We are geared up to offer this unique experience and be able to bring the most cutting-edge immersive technologies to our community right here at Alexis Nihon,” says Olga Kuznetsova, marketing manager of Alexis Nihon.
The site will offer a new VR game to interested players each week, though users must be at least 13 years old to participate.
A game entitled Oceans Alive will be offered from October 5th to 9th, Jungle Safari will be offered from October 10th to 16th, Thrills and Chills will be offered from October 17th to 23rd, and Travel and Explore will be offered from October 24th to 30th.
Earlier in August, the Dixie Outlet Mall in Mississauga launched a similar project. The location is also called the Virtual Reality Adventure Lounge, also features the Samsung Gear VR, and is still open today.
The site will be open from Monday to Friday from noon to 6 p.m., and on weekends from noon to 4 p.m.
