According to Cineplex, the new centre will feature a mind-shattering VR experience with insanely immersive visuals and 360 sound, launching you into a virtual world more realistic than anything you’ve ever imagined.

The new setup will feature the most advanced VR headset and motion-tracking technology, which will be powered by insanely fast computers, giving you a VR experience that’s light years ahead of anything else available.

Toronto’s gaming hub offers eight different VR experiences, including Star Wars and Star Trek experiences, and even an out-of-this-world Orbital Emergency game.



Whether you’re a VR beginner or an adrenaline junkie looking for an intense thrill ride, there’s definitely something for everyone.

The length of each experience will vary, but according to the Cineplex website, the experience times range from 7 to 20 minutes at this location.

If you’re interested in trying out one of these experiences, head to the IMAX VR Centre located on the ground level of Scotiabank Theatre for tickets.
