The ‘VR’ stands for virtual reality and according to the owner, Brent Feher, it’s a ‘place to go to experience things out of your reach.’

Play as an individual or select up to four teammates to play with when you choose from a huge selection sports, strategy and shooter games. There’s even an option to play online with players from all around the world.

Games not your thing? Try the VR Driving Simulators or the  Adventure Simulator that lets you choose from 20 different experiences such as skydiving, bungee jumping, sailing, roller coasters and more.

Unlike most shops and attractions in the mall, Skillz VR Arcade will be open well after the mall has closed on weekends.
