Is this real life, or is this just fantasy? Find out for yourself at amazing virtual reality arcades in Singapore.
We’re big fans of all the fun activities available in the Lion City (we’ve got everything from bowling to hiking to kayaking) but we know things can get a little stale. Sure, VTLs are open, but some of us aren’t too keen on paying exorbitant prices for Covid-19 tests just to travel. So, what if we told you it’s possible to get out of the country, without actually getting out of the country? With virtual reality, you can! Grab your friends and a headset and explore these VR arcades in Singapore that’ll transport you to another world.
Amazing virtual reality arcades in Singapore
1. VR World Singapore
Known as Singapore’s first virtual reality arcade, VR World welcomes players to solve mysteries, fight zombies and explore vast new worlds together. We love that these immersive video games take traditional escape rooms to the next level. Gather in groups of two to four players and find your way back home from a magical jungle sanctuary, or escape lost pyramids and underworlds straight out of Assassin’s Creed.
VR World Singapore, prices start at $35/hour per player, 8A Sago Street, Singapore 059012
2. Zero Latency Singapore
Do you love fantasy games? Sign up for a wild time at Zero Latency. Originating from Melbourne, this virtual reality arcade is a global leader in free-roaming, multiplayer virtual reality (not to mention, it’s the largest virtual reality gaming arena in Singapore). Bring up to four other friends and get ready for a multitude of zombie VR experiences, space adventures and impossible puzzles within alien worlds!

We know Golden Village for its cinemas and movies, but did you know it also has VR pods? Head to the foyer of Golden Village Funan to find them. Step to the beat with rhythm games, or sling webs in the air like your favourite neighbourhood Spider-Man! We’d say this is the perfect way to kill time while waiting for your movie to begin.
