Virtuix Installs Omni Arena at Dave & Buster’s in Houston, Texas
AUSTIN (November 14, 2019) – Virtuix, developer of the “Omni Arena” virtual reality esports attraction, has installed Omni Arena at Dave & Buster’s in Houston, TX. The Houston venue is the second Dave & Buster’s location to offer Omni Arena. Dave & Buster’s in Austin, TX has operated Omni Arena since May 2019.
“We are thrilled to bring Omni Arena to a second Dave & Buster’s location,” said Jan Goetgeluk, founder and CEO of Virtuix. “Data from the Austin location indicated high repeat play and customer satisfaction rates. We believe Omni Arena’s unique, active experience fits well with Dave & Buster’s target audience.”
Omni Arena is a full-body, competitive virtual reality attraction for up to four players. Motion platforms inside the attraction enable players to walk and run around inside video games. Guests can compete for top spots on leaderboards and win a share of a $100,000 “esports” prize pool sponsored by Virtuix and HP.
