FORT WORTH, Texas (June 17, 2022) – Sandbox VR, an immersive, full-body virtual reality experience, has officially opened the doors to its first Fort Worth location, a 10,000-square-foot space located at 2956 Crockett Street within the Crockett Row at West 7th development.
The Fort Worth location marks the company’s second in Texas and 14th in the U.S., with others throughout Asia, Canada, and opening soon in Europe. Backed by celebrities including Justin Timberlake, Katy Perry, Orlando Bloom, and Will Smith, Sandbox VR’s state-of-the-art futuristic facility combines movie-quality motion capture technology with virtual reality, allowing guests to explore new worlds together.
The space features four full-size Holodecks, each equipped with the newest VR technology. Together with friends, family, or co-workers, players are equipped with a VR headset, a haptic vest, a backpack, and motion sensors on their wrists and ankles. Participants can see and interact with their team through VR goggles while they free-roam together to complete adventures, which include experiences such as defeating zombies in a haunted mansion or participating in a family-friendly Star Trek space mission.
The Fort Worth Sandbox VR offers six exclusive VR experiences, including Amber Sky 2088, Deadwood Mansion, Curse of Davy Jones, Unbound Fighting League (UFL), Star Trek Discover: Away Mission, and their newest experience, Deadwood Valley.
“Launching in Fort Worth, our first North Texas location, is hugely exciting for us,” said Steven Zhao, Sandbox VR founder. “We’re proud to bring Sandbox VR to this vibrant community of families, university students, and young professionals.”
“Crockett Row at West 7th is becoming one of the top destinations for experiential entertainment in all of North Texas, and the fact that Sandbox VR selected Crockett Row as its second location in Texas is proof of this,” said Sierra Tuthill, marketing manager for Crockett Row at West 7th. “We couldn’t be more excited to welcome the VR fans to Crockett Row for a family-friendly activity unlike any other.”
Following the opening in Fort Worth, Sandbox VR will open a second location in North Texas at Mockingbird Station in Dallas on June 24th, 2022.
Each Sandbox VR experience lasts approximately 45 minutes. Participants must be at least 48″ or taller to play. Fort Worth Sandbox VR is open from 10 a.m. – 11p.m. Monday – Thursday and from 10 a.m.- 12 a.m. Friday – Sunday. For more information on Sandbox VR, visit https://sandboxvr.com.
