FAQ

Answers to Frequently Asked Questions

R

Does it feel real?

Yes! Although you are placed in an environment that is not real, your body will react as if it is. You may feel your stomach drop at tall heights or you will jump at surprises around the corner. When underwater, you will try to hold your breath! So much fun!!!

Can we record ourselves playing?

Yes! We encourage you to film yourself or we can do it for you and send it to you!

What is VR?

Virtual Reality (VR) is the use of computer technology to create a simulated environment. Unlike traditional user interfaces, VR places the user inside an experience. Instead of viewing a screen in front of them, users are immersed and able to interact with 3D worlds.

What Do You Mean By 'The Best Virtual Reality'?

We will always strive to be on the cutting edge once it comes to hardware and experiences.  We use wireless pro headsets and powerful gaming PCs to ensure your VR experience is optimal.

What Games Do You Have?

At Fixation we are constantly adding experiences to our system’s library. For a full list of the experiences we offer, please visit the experiences tab in the top right hand corner!

There Is A Game I Want To Play But You Don't Have It

We’re always looking to expand our Experiences Library with the latest new content! If you have a suggestion for a experience you want to see at Fixation, please let us know and we will see if it is feasible to add.  If you own a game that’s missing from the Games Library, don’t hesitate to ask to log into your own Steam account and play!

How Do I Book Time?

Prepaid bookings guarantee your VR Station and are done in advance either through our online booking system, or over the phone (682-404-6445).

Walk Ins are based on space available on any given day and are based on both space and staff availability.

Do I have to get there before my appointment?

Please arrive 5 minutes in advance so we can check you in and sign waivers, if necessary.  This way you maximize your play time.  

Age Limit?

We strongly suggest a minimum of 8 years old overall.  Ages 6 & 7 can be accommodated M-TH with advance notice to the arcade.  An adult (parent/guardian) must be available to assist staff with the younger child.  Players must be able to follow instructions, be responsible with the equipment and read directions within the headset.

Cost?

Cost varies by amount of time you want to play!  Basic pricing per player is:  $30 for first 30 minutes, and an additional $15 for every 30 minutes after that.  So an hour, per player, would be $45.  Check out full details under the “PRICING” Tab! 

We also offer  memberships, members get discounted pricing of $25/hour for the length of their purchased membership.  

Do you serve alcohol?

We are BYOB, but we do not offer alcohol for sale nor do we serve alcohol.  You are responsible for the responsible consumption of what you bring and we will not tolerate any disrespectful conduct towards staff or other customers.

Is it expensive?

Purchasing VR gaming equipment and accessories can get pricey. Fortunately, Fixation has all of this equipment for you to play on and experience already.

Do I have to be a gamer to enjoy playing VR?

No! The majority of VR enthusiasts are non-gamers. There is a VR experience for everyone, whatever their interests. You can experience new environments, paint a 3D masterpiece, or play with friends in an alternate reality!

What's the big deal about VR?

Short answer:  VR is incredibly immersive and like nothing you’ve ever done.

Long answer:  VR lets you interact with another world. You could be pulling back the string of a bow or be looking down the scope of a rifle as you eliminate your enemies.  You could be holding off a zombie horde, quashing a robot rebellion, or boxing your buddy.  You can dance to the beat on a space platform or get trapped in a leaking submarine, diving for clues as you try to escape before you drown! We’ve never seen an escape room in the real world offer that!!!  You can even create art, cook/serve food to customers in a restaurant, or work with a friend to disable a bomb before it explodes.  And so much more!  VR is an opportunity to twist reality and have limitless experiences.  Fixation is here to present you with the best in the virtual world.

Why Should I Come To Fixation? Can't I Buy My Own System?

VR is very social.  At Fixation, you can play multi-player games with friends and family or come in and play on your own. The other advantage of using our service is the speed at which new equipment and experiences come out:  Tech is always changing and we keep up!  

Can I Play My Own Games?

Yes! If you have your own Steam account with your own library of VR games, then you’re more than welcome to sign into your personal account and play! Just remember that the more time you spend logging in, the less time you’ll have to play!  

Do I Have To Play Alone Or Can I Play With Friends?

VR is a social experience! We can put you all in the same experience so you will play with your friends.  You will see each other’s character’s in the headset and communicate over the mics.  Number of players in an experience is based on how the game was designed.

How many people can I bring?

Players:  Our location has the capacity to have 15 people playing simultaneously, and up to 10 in a single multiplayer session (this is based on game limitations). We can accommodate larger groups as well, so check out our party packages.

Non-Players:  Also referred to as watchers, as we cast what is inside each headset to big screen tvs above the VR stations.  1 non-player per player is allowed.  More watchers than that incurs a fee as it takes up space in the arcade.  Watchers must stay in the same area as the players they are accompanying.  All children under 14 that are not playing must be accompanied by an adult and cannot wander into other play areas.  This is to ensure the safety of all, as other players will be in headsets and cannot see what is occurring in the “real” world.

Can I Walk In? Or do I have to book ahead?

Walk Ins are welcome based on space and staff availability.  We cannot guarantee the spaces will be available. To ensure you get to play at the time you want, please book ahead!

Glasses?

Absolutely! Our headsets are designed to be usable while wearing eyeglasses. We do recommend contacts if possible though as very active players find that more comfortable.

Do you serve food or drinks?

We have drinks and snacks available for purchase.  We allow outside food and drinks, which can be consumed in the seated areas.  Food/Drink is not allowed in the play area due to safety reasons.
