About

Be transported.

How many times have you found yourself reading a book, or watching a movie and wishing that you could step through the screen into another world? With VR Link’s AR.CADE, this dream can become a reality.

With the use of the latest in Virtual Reality (VR) systems we aim to deliver new and exciting experiences to everyone in a friendly and affordable environment.

We are staging a return to the classic arcade experience that many of us miss, with a twist for the modern era. We wish to create the social environment of an arcade with the potential for grand and amazing experiences that only VR can provide.

So please, come join us and let’s play

Experience the edge.

We will be equipping each “pod” with a curated selection of bleeding-edge VR hardware to ensure our users have the most immersive experience possible. This means an experience that evolves as we learn and as technology progresses we can continue to bring the latest and greatest experiences to our customers. Obsolete is an outdated term here.

How it works.

We strive for as user friendly an experience as possible, from the moment you walk in our door. With a selection of several different payment schemes to suit everyone. Users purchase time in the form of credit, which allows for access to a pod for that amount of time. You can purchase as many hours as you want, and you don’t have to use it all there and then. Any customer can leave and retain the remaining credit on their account up to a minimum of a half hour time slot.

Here at VR Link we value our community above all else. We want our customers to feel comfortable and enjoy themselves both inside and outside of VR, for this purpose we have designed a “chill out” area for customers to relax with friends, play some games and refresh before or after an experience in a welcoming “no worries” environment.

Join us, and let’s experience VR together.

Risks and challenges

We believe for our dream to become a reality, location is everything. We want to be at the heart of it all, a nexus for all our customers to converge and the best location we could think of is the heart of our nation’s capital, Dublin City Centre. A portion of the funds that we ask for will go to securing such a location so that all of our customers can experience VR with minimum travel time.

Once we have a home, we need to fill it with the latest VR tech we can get our hands on, as we wish to bring the best experience possible to our customers. We are asking you to help us procure the best VR HMDs, accessories and tracking systems available to achieve our dreams.
