- What People Say
L.A. Dragon Studios is located in Van Nuys near an eclectic selection of shops and eateries. The area may not look the safest, and some homeless people may be walking about, so you may want to park in their lot in back. Otherwise, there is ample metered parking available in front. The building used to be a medical structure, but if you see an inflatable dragon near the entrance you know you’re in the right place.
The owners are very hospitable and passionate people who are open to feedback. They provide coffee and water, and you can purchase some snacks in the waiting room for their physical escape room, “Knights of the Roundtable”. There may not be lockers for your your bags but they will keep them in a safe spot where the hosts can watch them.
Space Station Tiberia is one of their VR games, with their number of VR games growing. Your mission is to save Planet Earth from a giant meteor by reactivating the Space Station Tiberia and using its weapons to destroy the meteor. Many challenges stand between you and the salvation of the planet. Your team will travel into the future to save our world. In the research lab you will need to find all the information needed to determine the fate of the Earth. Make your way through the laser security and figure out how to activate the laser beam to destroy the meteor that will collide with Earth.
This game is different from other VR escape rooms we’ve played. For one, your entire group of 2-4 will physically be in a large room together, but what you see through the VR goggles will not reflect the actual room. Rather, you will be seeing and interacting with the VR world. You will even be able to see and interact with your team members represented by their individually-colored astronaut helmets and space gloves. You will be holding a set of controllers to act as your hands, which allows you to interact with the environment, pick up objects, and complete different puzzles. You will also wear a headset connected to a backpack, which heats up over time and could actually add to the immersion of the room. Through this headset you can see and hear the environment, which completely immerses you in the game.
The time limit is different from a typical escape room. You have 30 minutes to complete the game, so you better be practicing your code-breaking skills! It’s a reasonable amount of time for such a game and worth the price tag. And if you have a group of more than four people, one group can play some retro arcade games while the other group plays the VR game. The arcade is free if you play any of the VR games. If you want just the arcade experience, the rate is $10. They also have a physical escape room, Knights of the Roundtable, in the same building in case you want to play that one too. That one is a 60 minute experience. You could also always ask for a combo package and take advantage of the discounted pricing for both.
Players must be 12 years of age or older in order to play the VR escape room. But that gives your children time to train with the regular escape rooms. They’ll be more than ready to take on other escape rooms and VR rooms easily and on their own when they’re old enough!
All that being said, the experience is a lot of fun and has pretty good visuals compared to some other VR games. If you are able to communicate with your teammates you will definitely succeed and save Planet Earth! There is no group photo after the game, but the staff is very polite and you could ask them to take pictures and videos while you are playing. We look forward to many other experiences this company has to offer, and they are quickly creating some of our favorite experiences in Los Angeles.
