Back when the television or when the computer was being introduced into society in order you experience one you had to go to a public place. If you wanted to see a television show before televisions became affordable in every home you had to go a movie theater or maybe see it through the window of a shop. Before video games and computers became affordable for those who wanted them the arcade was the place you needed to go to experience video games.

We are in the early stages of virtual reality. The headsets are bulky and the pricing is affordable for most people unless you are willing to settle for GearVR or Google Cardboard. Until virtual reality headsets become more affordable to the public arcades can be a great way of exposing the public to virtual reality while making some money.

Virtual reality arcades are already rolling out in many places. In an earlier article we talked about virtual reality arcades in cinemas. While virtual reality games could be great for the lobby more specialized experiences would be present at places like theme parks. Already 6 Flags is planning on rolling out virtual reality experiences for its customers. Universal Orlando is also releasing a Halloween VR experience called The Repository, you can read more about it here at this "uploadvr.com" article by Ian Hamilton.

Arcades like this are just companies dipping their toes in the market to see how popular the VR market will be. If these arcades are successful enough then you may see a VR arcade coming to a place near you.

The virtual reality
race is on.
