Sandbox Virtual Reality Experience Opens Its Seventh U.S. Location In Austin

Announced this week, Sandbox VR, one of the most realistic virtual reality experiences in the world, opens its doors at The Domain in Austin, TX on February 19, 2020. Sandbox VR is the kind of immersive social experience that people have dreamt of since the dawn of computing. Through a unique combination of motion capture and VR technologies, you can become anyone and go anywhere. 

Within the Sandbox VR experience, guests transform into virtual avatars of themselves and enter experiences that are mapped over the physical world. Groups can feel haptic feedback, see their friends, and interact with each other just as they normally would.

Guests can immerse themselves in five exciting Sandbox experiences: The Curse of Davy Jones, Amber Sky 2088, Deadwood Mansion, Unbound Fighting League (UFL), and the newly added Star Trek: Discovery Away Mission. Sandbox VR Austin is located at 11600 Rock Rose Ave Suite 128, Austin, TX 78758, and will be open Monday through Thursday from 11 AM to 10 PM and Friday and Saturday from 11 AM to midnight and Sundays from 11 AM to 11 PM. 

With the successes of the 2019 openings of The Village Westfield Topanga in Los Angeles, and the Mission Valley San Diego location, as well as the 2020 openings of the Los Cerritos Center in Orange County, CA and at The Oakbrook Center in Chicago, Sandbox VR is also slated to launch in New York City this year.

Sandbox is launching with five unique experiences. The Curse of Davy Jones is a thrilling treasure hunt on the high seas, Amber Sky 2088 is a futuristic journey from the ground floor of new Hong Kong all the way up to space, Deadwood Mansion is an intense zombie survival experience, UFL throws you in an ultimate fighting ring, and the newest experience allows you to join the crew of the USS Discovery in Star Trek: Discovery Away Mission.

I have been asked to try out the new Sandbox VR experience in Austin, Texas since that’s where we are located. Stay tuned for a future post of my personal experience!
