Compete in gaming tournaments and win incredible prizes

In our Fortnite tournament players have 20 minutes to attempt to get a victory royale in public matches. If the player dies within the 20 minutes they will be able to restart a new game in an attempt to get another victory, this can repeated as many times as needed during the time limit. If more than one players gets a victory in the round, most kills will separate the 2 players. Also if no-one gets a victory within the time limit, most kills will decide the winner of the round. No teams will be allowed on the day as this tournament is purely a Free-For-All! The winner of each round will progress to a final where a 30 minute time limit will be introduced under the same rules as the previous rounds.

In our Overwatch tournament teams of 6 will compete in head to head knockout style best of 3 games. The game type for the event is; Escort: The attacking team is tasked with escorting a payload to a certain delivery point before time runs out, while the defending team must stop them. The payload vehicle moves along a fixed track when any player on the attacking team is close to it. Teams will consist of 6 people, these teams will be randomly selected on the day, however friends may team together but in no more than groups of 3 in the interest of fairness.

Experience mind blowing VR games in one of our three dedicated VR booths

Experience the latest in VR technology in one of our dedicated HTC Vive and Vive Pro demo booths. We'll be running demos throughout the day for you to try your hand at a range of immersive VR games and experiences.

Kiss the apex in the seat of our fully actuated VRX racing sim

The RAID full motion racing simulator provides an unparalleled racing experience. The three commercial-grade high-performance D-Box actuators provide motion in three degrees of freedom and support for 55 vehicles and 73 tracks. The driving controls are professional grade, equipment straight from the F1 teams’ laboratory. The driver’s cage is designed using authentic race car methods, a low bend radius tubular lightweight steel space frame encloses the driver to create a real ‘inside vehicle’ feel. Other motion racing simulators on the market have been designed first as a non-motion product with the motion solution added later. The RAID system has been conceived to be a motion system that you sit in. The entire chassis vibrates, leans and dives as you throw it around the race track. All these feeling are communicated to you not just through the seat and driving controls, but also through the entire mass surrounding you.
