Join your Spice friends at this new Virtual Reality venue.

You’ve watched the films and seen the TV series (if you’re old enough!) now you can actually join the crew of Star Fleet 

Engage in exhilarating shootouts using your iconic Starfleet Phaser. Beam down and explore breath taking alien worlds with your friends. Find a lost Starfleet ship and discover its mysteries.

Built in partnership with CBS Interactive, Star Trek: Discovery Away Mission fully immerses you in the world of Star Trek like never before. You and your friends will join the crew aboard the U.S.S. Discovery. In your role as Starfleet officers, you'll have the chance to stand on a transporter pad with your own two feet and get beamed to your Away Mission. Guiding you on your mission is Starfleet officer Sylvia Tilly (voiced by Mary Wiseman). As an Away Team, you will investigate a mysterious distress signal originating from an unexplored alien world. Using iconic Starfleet equipment like the phaser and tricorder, it is up to your crew to work together to solve the mystery and survive the perils along the way.

Our evening will consist of :

Arrival to check in with our Sandbox host 15 minutes prior to your booking time to ensure our Sandbox VR experience does not get cut short This will consist of about 10 minutes of training and setup, about 30 minutes in the VR experience. Another 10 minutes post experience to grab a drink from our robot bartender and re-live your experience with cinematic video highlights with you and your group as the stars.

We will be in the game as a group and will not be mixed with any other groups.

Host & Everything Else

Am I likely to get motion sickness? While we can’t 100% guarantee it, the experiences are designed to be very different from other VR experiences you may have tried before: it’s room scale, you can freely move around, and your entire body is tracked. Motion sickness is caused by a difference between your actual and perceived motion. Because the motion capture technology tracks you in real-time, your real movements translate to your perceived movements. Many guests who have had motion sickness in other VR experiences do not experience it at Sandbox VR

Physical Requirements:

As a guideline, guests should be

1.2m (48″) or taller to play

Able to support gear weight of at least 2KG’s (4 lbs) for up to 1 hour
