IMAX gives visitors the chance to try out room-scale VR games in a newly opened location in Los Angeles

Though virtual reality continues to grow in popularity, the high cost of setting up an entire room to take advantage of it can put it out of reach for many. To help introduce VR to those who can’t afford it, IMAX created 14 VR arcade pod rooms for users to try out room-scale games. IMAX opened its first one in The Grove shopping center in Los Angeles.

Rather than paying an entry fee at the door, customers will instead pay for each game they’d like to play, which can last from anywhere from five minutes to 15. Visitors can try out games that utilize a room-scale VR experience, such as Star Wars: Trials on Tatooine, Knockout League, John Wick Chronicles, and more. The cost to play the games range from $7 to $10.

IMAX plans to open up five more in other cities, such as Shanghai and New York City.
