Sandbox VR use advanced technology and builds on the concept of shared play to create fully immersive, virtual reality gaming experiences. With over 19 venues worldwide and an expanding universe into eSports, they are the future of entertainment.

The first of its kind in London, Sandbox VR invites groups of guests to walk into an unrivalled futuristic experience. Once through the doors of the venue, guests will be hit with a fully immersive environment diving into a high energy ‘social space’. Players will run the full competitive gamut of adrenaline fuelled emotions where they can enter worlds of swashbuckling daring adventures, surviving a Zombie Apocalypse, soar into the clouds in a space elevator or compete against one another in a futuristic combat arena – the true future of immersive entertainment.

Using knowledge of both London and the gaming scene, it was possible to bring specific press contacts and social media heavyweights to the table to cover this significant launch




Leveraging the crossover potential of the technology market, competitive socialising and gaming industries as well as a unique hospitality angle with the robot bar, Mance Communications turned this exciting import into one of the most talked-about openings in London and the UK, drawing in a client base from both inside and outside the capital
