Design Ideas for VR Arcades

In the past couple of week’s I’ve been asked for ideas about the design of a VR arcade on three different occasions. One of my number one secrets for having topics for your blog is “answer your frequently asked questions”. So without further adieu, allow me to present some of my favorite designs I’ve seen. And please, feel free to share a link to your arcade of pix of your arcade in the comments.

The Original 10 VR Arcade Design Ideas

This first one has a special place in my heart. If Josh and McKay didn’t create this, they wouldn’t have made the software to run it and I likely wouldn’t be sharing about VR Arcade design. So, hat tip to the newly renovated VR Junkies in Orem, Utah.

I don’t know how to pronounce Isimu and to make matters worse, I’m not even sure what the word means. It could mean, cool looking VR arcade in Duluth, GA.

VR1 of Idaho originally appeared on my radar while I was looking at VR Arcades on YouTube. I enjoyed their video and added it to the playlist. I think this is a nice clean look for a VR arcade and I like how they went with table and chairs as opposed to couches.

Hey- Who turned ON the lights?

VRKade certainly has a unique that is befitting of their name. This design in quite interesting and MIGHT spook me out a bit if I was playing a haunted experience here. LOL

It's a little scary
VRKade – Calgary, Alberta Canada

Upward VR has a very clean look and the graphics let you know what kind of experience you’re in for. They also do a nice job showcasing their social media right there on the welcome side. I mean, like seriously, you can see it from here.

Spring on in...

Ignite VR has a very clear design and you know exactly what is going on behind closed doors. You know…cuz they’re glass and you can see through them. I’m curious as to how this works with the lighthouses??

I see what you're doing there...
Ignite VR- Singapore

Here is the first location of Cntrl-V. Actually, this isn’t my favorite picture of theirs. Go to Google, type in Cntrl-V, select images and take a look. They’ve got some cool stuff to show for sure.

Looks really cool from the entrance

I believe this is more of a rendering than a real world photo. I know, the silhouettes do give it away. But we’re talking about design IDEAS and this looks like a really good idea to me.

Not sure if real...
IMAX VR – Los Angeles

A great looking entry from NZ, this VR arcade booth has Pink AND Purple. Yes, I’m a fairly manly man…except when it comes to colors I like. I think this place looks extra fun.

Like your space a bit more industrious? Maybe not as bright and fun as the one above, but certainly fitting. Especially when you consider the amount of shooters and the amount of post apocalyptic experiences in VR.

Additional Design Ideas

After sharing this post in a few places I received some additional photos. Yes this post mentioned 10 ideas, but isn’t more better? In this instance it totally is!

Here you will see our first open room multi-player environment. Have to remember that not every VR arcade requires walls. After all, you take care of room setup and that imaginary cage will protect these people, right?

This has a cool vibe about it. Not overly done by any stretch, but the circuitry art under the screens make it seem to fit. As an added bonus, VR Territory has one of my favorite VR company logos.

Kind of casual design
VR Territory – Los Angeles

And last and certainly first, this entry from Leke VR in China is just amazing. They did such a great job with it.

This is such great design
