Frequently asked questions
What comes with my VR rental?
We cater to the needs of each event and have provided virtual reality rental services since 2014! We have all the equipment under the sun but the most typical event will include 1 computer, 1 HTC Vive Pro, and a knowledgeable and experienced host to help your guests use our equipment. Please contact us for more details.
How does a virtual reality team event work?
Setup takes about 1 hour and we can get our gear ready to go whenever you need us to. Once it's running our hosts will rotate your guests through whatever VR experiences they choose. The virtual reality setup is engaging and interactive for everyone at your event even for those who do not wish to use the VR because we display what the virtual reality user is seeing on a HDTV which can have some really funny results!
Can you do themed events with the virtual reality rental?
Yes! We have hundreds of games ready to go and also frequently download new games in order to cater to whatever your theme is. To provide some examples of what our virtual reality team offers: deep sea diving, snowboarding and skiing, horror, music and dance, star wars, fantasy and other popular media, thrillseekers and extreme sports, travel, medical and science, and much much more!
How many people can use the virtual reality?
If necessary we can bring additional setups and more entertainment. (our retro games setup is a great addition!). Our single unit VR party rental is capable of running a person through about once every 4-5 minutes. But is also a great spectator addition to your event as we display what the VR user is seeing onto a HDTV or projector for everyone to see.
What space requirements are there for a VR headset rental?
We have sit down options that only require a table but for the best results a 8'x8' area or larger for your virtual reality rental users to walk around in is ideal. We can operate anywhere indoors and only require power. We do operate outdoors but have to inspect the venue (needs to be flat and have a tent or canopy so it operates in the shade). Our gaming truck is a good option for outdoor virtual reality events.
What service area is covered by virtual reality rentals?
We operate WORLDWIDE for our virtual reality rentals. Our equipment is nicely packaged in travel safe containers and we fly with it often. Our experienced hosts are more than happy to travel for VR events for a reasonable fee. That said our predominant service area is within Utah; some of the popular areas we service for VR rental events are Salt Lake City, Ogden, Layton, Bountiful, Farmington, North Salt Lake, Murray, West Valley, Millcreek, Sugarhouse, Cottonwood Heights, Sandy, Draper, West Jordan, South Jordan, Taylorsville, West Valley, Lehi, Orem, Provo, Spanish Fork, Heber and Park City.
What do I need to do?
Not much! Just show us your space and give us some power and we are good to go :)... If you have HDTV's or a projector you would like us to hook up into we are more than happy to do so. We take care of the rest.
How many events has Playbox operated?
Playbox was an early adopter of virtual reality events and VR rentals starting way back with the Oculus Rift DK (the first in the current generation designs) in 2013. Since then we have operated well over a hundred different virtual reality events including: trade shows, company picnics, private parties, birthday parties, weddings, corporate events, team building events, holliday parties, company Christmas parties, and more.
Does your virtual reality headset cause motion sickness?
Our equipment is cutting edge and drastically reduces any kind of motion sickness. The overwhelming majority of users have had no problems! This is because we use the highest resolution and highest qauity headset available and use incredibly powerful computers to have high frame rates. We also avoid using games that may cause discomfort. This means much less motion sickness! And most likely none at all :)
