Sandbox VR is coming to City Foundry STL at the end of 2022

Players can experience six different worlds in VR.

ST. LOUIS – A VR experience will join the plethora of things to do at City Foundry STL in late 2022.

Sandbox VR is “the global leader in free-roam virtual reality experiences,” according to a press release from City Foundry.

Sandbox VR’s City Foundry location is the first Sandbox VR location in St. Louis and will occupy 4,658 square feet in its City Foundry home. The venue will have private rooms for virtual reality gaming that will offer six immersive worlds called “holodecks,” the release said.

The six experiences offered are:

  • NEW Deadwood Valley: The newest and most immersive experience yet! Take part in an adrenaline-pumping zombie thrill ride through a city overrun by zombies – you and your team get to choose the ending.
  • Deadwood Mansion: Do you have what it takes to survive the zombie horde? Work with your team to protect Deadwood Mansion from the undead in the most popular experience.
  • Curse of Davy Jones: Battle a variety of supernatural creatures on the high seas to hunt for Davy Jones’ long-lost treasure.
  • Amber Sky 2088: Fly through the clouds in a futuristic space elevator while defending Earth from alien swarms.
  • Star Trek: Discovery: Built in collaboration with CBS Interactive, Star Trek: Discovery Away Mission completely immerses you in the world of Star Trek like never before. Board the USS Discovery as a Starfleet Officer and beam around to explore alien worlds with your friends.
  • UFL: Transform into a futuristic gladiator and dual opponents in a breathtaking arena beyond the confines of reality.

The VR experience is offered to groups of up to six people with technology on each player that allows them to interact with each other as if they were experiencing the worlds in real life.

According to the release, players will be equipped with a VR headset, backpack, haptic vest and motion sensors on the wrists and ankles.

“Our expansion model is simple, we select vibrant communities, cities with a great technology and start-up scene, somewhere close to universities, and that is located in a meaningful part of the community – City Foundry STL was a natural partner for a Midwestern expansion as it delivers on all fronts,” said David Friedman, global vice president of real estate for Sandbox VR in the release… community.”

New + Found, orchestrated the VR experience’s plan to move to City Foundry, according to the press release.

This year will be a huge time for growth at City Foundry STL,” said Will Smith, CEO of New + Found, in the release. “We welcomed two new retail tenants, three new kitchens at The Food Hall in City Foundry STL, and announced two upcoming attractions. We are thrilled to add Sandbox VR to our first-to-the-area experiences and bring a global leader in virtual reality to St. Louisans.”
