Frequently asked questions
What is Fantasium?
We specialize in integrating fully-immersive and surreal VR experiences into performances, events, parties, classrooms and more!
What services do you offer?
We incorporate VR into art shows, exhibits, corporate events, birthday parties, as well as day camps for kids and Saturday labs for both children and adults.
What does VR stand for?
It stands for Virtual Reality, which is a full immersive 3D experience that users receive through VR Wearables (headsets).
Is Augmented Reality the same thing as Virtual Reality?
No. Augmented reality is a technology which superimposes an image onto the user’s view of the real world on a device, most commonly in smartphones.
Are you an arcade?
Good question but no, we are not an arcade! While we do offer some arcade-style games and experiences, we also have so much more: camps for kids, events, art exhibits, etc.
How does it work?
Users will wear either an Oculus or HTC Vive. Each has a set of different experiences and teleports the user into an artificial world where the limitations are endless. Some experiences are completely hands-free and others require use of controls similar to video games.
How does a person play or ‘immerse’ themselves in a VR world?
A person interacts with a computer-generated VR environment and becomes part of this virtual world. You will use hearing, touch, and vision to manipulate objects or perform a series of actions using movement from your hands, eyes, legs, etc.
Is VR suitable for everyone?
A VR is a great experience for most people from the ages of 8 and up. People who are prone to motion sickness may feel some slight nausea for the first time, but for most this is fleeting and merely a sign that your brain is being exposed to something totally new.
