Two new VR Pod products have been recently introduced: the VR Kiosk and the VR Pod Arena. The first is a smaller and lighter version of the original VR Pod, and probably the most affordable VR solution on the market. The VR Pod Arena is a 4-player VR solution designed for multiplayer gaming experiences and VR escape games, sold with premium gaming titles such as Arizona sunshine (Vertigo Games) and Space Junkies (Ubisoft).

With analysts estimating that the number of VR Location-Based Entertainment locations will rise from around 5,700 in 2018 to 45,700 by the end of 2022 (source: Greenlight Insights analysis), mk2’s offer of VR solutions appears in a very favourable environment.
