“St. Paul, MN – October 25th, 2016 – Voxel Virtual Reality Parlour, Minnesota’s first Virtual Reality Arcade, announces the opening of its first Twin Cities location, which offers a high-end, curated experience for a special event or an unforgettable night out.

The Voxel team, headed by three Minnesota locals, will hold a public open house on November 12th, from 6PM until midnight at its newly renovated space in Vandalia Tower, 550 Vandalia Street, Suite 218, St. Paul, MN 55114. The Grand Opening event will feature a suite of custom hardware solutions and a library of cutting-edge experiences to bring the best of VR to the Twin Cities.

The parlour boasts a captivating, immersive environment in which to explore several different virtual worlds. Each of the three Virtual Reality areas in the parlour can be reserved for private parties, allowing the group to snack, socialize, and spectate as individuals interact with the virtual surroundings.

With a newly remodeled space and customized equipment allowing a wide-range of free movement, Voxel offers a fun, mesmerizing group experience that will not be found in most living rooms. Voxel allows the ability to explore the expansiveness of VR without a huge up-front investment from users. As new technologies emerge, the Voxel team is dedicated to securing and developing cutting-edge solutions to continue to provide the most immersive and exciting VR settings in Minnesota.

“When we first started exploring the Virtual Reality landscape, it was obvious that not enough people were getting the opportunity to understand what it has to offer,” said Jeff Trinh-Sy, CEO of Voxel.

“We wanted to make sure that people not only had access to this incredibly immersive experience, but also had the chance to share it with their friends and family. It’s like knowing you’re about to see a sunrise for the first time, but you have the chance to share that wonder and awe with the people you care about.”

Voxel is committed to evolving with the emerging Virtual Reality technology. They hope to support developers in creating content, make VR accessible to a broad range of people, and ensure that a wide audience is able to experience VR in its absolute best form. More information on the Open House and reserving a free 15-minute demo can be found at www.facebook.com/voxelvrp.
