Player Ready Virtual Reality (VR) Cornwall & Plymouth is the premier place to experience the latest technology and experiences that Virtual Reality has to offer.
Our first venue opened in July 2018 at Rollers Roller Rink in Redruth, Cornwall UK.
We then moved to our own premises in Truro in the heart of the city full of VR & VR Racing Simulators in March 2019 with the Roller Rink site moving to Flambards Theme Park for Summer 2019 which will be there again in 2020.
Playing Virtual Reality is a great day out with the family when its raining and your on holiday in Cornwall.
Player Ready opened its doors on 21st July 2018 making us the biggest VR Arcade in Cornwall and maybe the UK with over 7 headsets all working at the same time.
