What is Sphere Virtual Reality Arcade?

Sphere is Ohio's first dedicated VR Arcade. Whether you're looking for an awesome night out with friends, spend quality time with the kids or you want to test the HTC Vive before you buy it Sphere is the perfect destination for you! We currently have locations in Columbus, Cincinnati and Toledo Ohio for the holiday season. February 1st we'll be opening a 14 station location in Columbus. If you're interested in working with Sphere in business development contact jayson@spherearcade.com. 

What is VR?

Virtual Reality (VR) is the use of computer technology to create a simulated environment. Unlike traditional user interfaces, VR places the user inside an experience. Instead of viewing a screen in front of them, users are immersed and able to interact with 3D worlds.

Why should I come experience VR?

The short answer? Because it’s fun. The long answer? Sphere lets you interact with another world. You could be pulling back the string of a bow or be looking down the scope of a rifle. You could be commanding an army at your feet or holding a heavy golf club. As limitless as your options are in reality you will have many more in virtual reality. We are here to provide you with the newest and best in the virtual world.

Can't I buy my own system? 

We would love for you to own your own system! The advantage of using our service is the speed at which new equipment and games come out. To keep up with that on your own will cost far more than spending 5-10 hours a month at Sphere.

How do I book time? 

Just like buying tickets for a movie! All bookings at Sphere are done in advance either through our online booking system, over the phone or in store using the following steps: Tell us the number of people attending. Pick your preferred time slot. Complete your payment – that’s it!

What is a Station?

A station is your play space. One station can be split between two people but only one person may be in the station at one time. To play multiplayer games you'll need to book multiple stations.

How Far Ahead of Time Should I arrive? 

We recommend arriving at least 15 minutes before your booked appointment to sign our Terms and Conditions waivers, get set-up and choose your experiences!

Do I have to choose my game ahead of time? 

Nope! You'll be able to choose any game you want at any time. 

Do you have Gift Certificates? 

Gift Certificates can be purchased at our Toledo and Cincinnati locations and must be redeemed before Jan 31, 2018. 

Do you do birthday parties and corporate events? 

They're our specialty! Most people say the true roomscale VR we offer is one of the coolest things they've ever tried. This makes it perfect for Birthday Parties, Corporate Events, Gatherings, Bachelor Parties and Team Building. For special party rates please call (614) 347-0676

How does this compare to laser tag, bowling, go-karts, zip-lining or jump parks? 

Based on our testimonials, it's not even close. Scroll down to see what a few people had to say about their time as Sphere!

“I grew up with an Atari. This doesn’t even seem real. Easily one of the most impressive technologies I’ve ever seen”

Richard James


“All I can say is WOW!!! The staff is so nice and professional. You really get the feeling like this isn’t a job for them. We all loved it and we couldn’t get out the door without the kids asking when we were coming back!”
