Sandbox VR Opens First Washington Location at The Village at Totem Lake

Kirkland, WA - Apr 06, 2022

The Village at Totem Lake welcomes Sandbox VR, the global leader in free-roam virtual reality (VR) experience. The Kirkland location features four virtual reality rooms for experience play and offers five immersive worlds that will leave guests coming back for more. “Seattle and The Eastside are vibrant technology hubs, so opening our first Washington location here was an easy decision. We’re already getting a phenomenal response from the local gaming community,” shares David Friedman, Global Vice President of Real Estate, Sandbox VR.

What is it Like to Play?

Sandbox VR is a futuristic, fully immersive virtual reality experience for groups of up to six where you can see and physically interact with everyone inside, just like the real world. Inspired by Star Trek's Holodeck, the exclusive worlds let players feel like they are living inside a game or movie, and are built by EA, Sony, and Ubisoft veterans.

“It’s a socially immersive gaming experience that provides a unique combination of full body motion capture and virtual reality technologies that allows players to become anyone and go anywhere,” shares Karissa Grow, Store Manager, Sandbox VR.

Together with friends, family, or even co-workers, players are equipped with a VR headset, a haptic vest, a backpack, and motion sensors on their wrists and ankles. Participants can see and interact with their team through VR goggles while they free-roam together to complete an experience such as defeating zombies in a haunted mansion or participating in a family-friendly Star Trek space mission.

“Our goal with The Village at Totem Lake is to create a true mixed-use center which includes retail, restaurants, services, residential, and entertainment all in one place. That’s why we’re excited to welcome Sandbox VR to our line-up and give the community another reason to spend time with us,” says Erika Plummer, Vice President Leasing at CenterCal Properties.
