Whether you’re trying your hand at blackjack or betting on a game at a sports book there is always a way to be a part of gaming in Vegas. But what about video games? Well, now you can enjoy that too with everything from virtual reality to gaming lounges. Here are the top things to do for video gamers in Vegas:
Take break from your own reality and step into virtual reality at VR Adventures at The LINQ Promenade. The attraction offers four unique virtual reality experiences that use Oculus Rift technology to immerse guests in a three-dimensional world. Zipline and parachute over a virtual recreation of Las Vegas in “Screaming Skydive;” fly through the city in search of hidden hot air balloons in “Soaring Superhero;” escape a haunted house without disturbing the ghouls in “House of Horrors;” or shoot down enemy fighters as you fly and roll through the air in “Fly N’ Shoot.”
The Wall Gaming Lounge
Imagine an entire wall of gaming. And now go experience it at The Wall Gaming Lounge at Rio All-Suite Hotel Casino. Gamers can choose from a selection of consoles and play classic arcade games and new favorites such as Fortnite, Hearthstone, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Dragon Ball FighterZ and more. And what goes better with video games than food and beer? The Wall Gaming Lounge offers a pour-your-own beverage wall, featuring more than 50 beers and energy drinks on tap. There is also mobile food ordering and a menu including fries, burgers, craft beer and signature cocktails named after gaming icons.
Combine you love of sports with gaming at The Book at The LINQ Hotel & Casino. Book a fan cave, one of 12 rentable “living rooms” and you’ll get access to a 98-inch TV (which can be divided into four screens), two 49-inch TVs, an Xbox One console, a VR rig and more. Now you can watch and play at the same time.
