With a polished and professional look accompanied by NZ’s largest gaming arenas – the Papamoa VR studio is the perfect place to host your next kid’s (or big kid’s) birthday party, corporate event/team building activity or just simply to immerse yourself in a new reality. From the moment you and your friends step in through the portal, you will be blown away by The CAVE’s all-embracing ‘WOW’ factor.

Our 3rd studio was launched in 2019, at Ashley Place, Papamoa, New Zealand.

We believe in a physical activity combined with gaming , so if you’re not getting your heart rate up in BeatSaber or VR Boxing, a few minutes bouncing around will help with that!
