Is it really summer in Vancouver right now? We’re not so sure.

When all of the days that you planned to spend at the beach end up being spent inside watching shows on Netflix (thanks a lot, rain), you know you’ve got to seek out a new experience here in the city.

The perfect place to do that (and throw yourself into another reality) is at Evolve VR. A virtual playground, it’s the only VR lounge in the city offering a brag-worthy cinematic experience.

Ever fight off terrifying waves of monsters or step into the virtual shoes of Adonis Creed to box your way to championship glory? Ever stroll through the streets of Tokyo even though you’ve never been to Japan? How about experience the ultimate thrill ride in a wingsuit?

Good news: You can do all of these things and more at Evolve VR.

The arcade offers stations that you can rent on your own, with your other half on date night, or as part of a group of three. And you can choose the length of time that you wish to play for, whether it’s for one, two, or three hours.
