PLEASE READ CAREFULLY

I sign this Release and Waiver of Liability in consideration of the use of the facilities at HBG Investments, LLC doing business as Virtual Experience (“VE”), or to participate in any parties or activities at/by VE.  I acknowledge and understand that there are dangers and risks associated with the activities at/by VE and agree to assume all risk of property damage and personal injury, including but not limited to seizures, loss of awareness, eye strain, eye or muscle twitching, involuntary movements, altered, blurred, or double vision or other visual abnormalities, dizziness, disorientation, impaired balance, impaired hand-eye coordination, excessive sweating, increased salivation, nausea, light-headedness, discomfort or pain in the head or eyes, drowsiness, decreased ability to multi-task, fatigue, or any symptoms similar to motion sickness, all of which can persist and become more apparent hours after use and which may lead to an increased risk of injury when engaging in normal activities in the real world after leaving the Premises.  I expressly agree and promise to accept and assume all of the risks existing in this activity.  My participation in this activity is purely voluntary and I elect to participate in spite of the risks.

I acknowledge that, even though VE’s staff may be present, it is my responsibility to monitor my activity obey the posted rules.  If I observe any rules being broken or hazard during my participation, I will bring it to the attention of the nearest VE employee immediately.

I, and on behalf of my heirs, assigns, personal representatives and next of kin, agree to WAIVE, RELEASE, INDEMNIFY, HOLD HARMLESS, AND FOREVER DISCHARGE VE, and its owners, employees, equipment manufacturers and sponsoring agencies from all liability for any such personal injury, disability, death, proceeding cost, legal costs, expenses or loss or damage to a person or property during my time at VE to the fullest extent of the law, even if the liability arises from the negligence of VE’s owners, employees, equipment manufacturers and sponsoring agencies.  

Virtual Experience Rules:


The following rules govern your participation and/or your child/ward’s participation in any activity at Virtual Experience and I agree to abide by the following rules:

1.       A full refund of deposits will be issued for all reservations cancelled at least forty-eight (48) hours in advance of a scheduled booking.  Users who fail to cancel their reservation at least 48 hours in advance of a scheduled booking will forfeit their deposits.

2.       I grant VE the right to photograph, videotape and/or record me and to use my face, likeness, voice and appearance in connection with exhibitions, publicity, advertising and promotional materials without reservation, limitation or compensation.

3.       All Users using the Virtual Experience virtual reality equipment for the first time are required to watch the Virtual Experience tutorial video in its entirety prior to using the equipment.

4.       Prolonged use should be avoided, as this could negatively impact hand-eye coordination, balance, and multi-tasking ability. Adults should monitor children closely during and after use of the VR equipment for any decrease in these abilities.

5.       A comfortable virtual reality experience requires an unimpaired sense of motion and balance. Do not use the Virtual Experience virtual reality equipment when you are tired, need sleep, are under the influence of alcohol or drugs, are hung-over, have digestive problems, are under emotional stress or anxiety, or when suffering from cold, flu, headaches, migraines, or earaches, as this can increase your susceptibility to adverse symptoms. Operation of Virtual Experience virtual reality equipment under the influence of drugs or alcohol is strictly prohibited.

6.       Immediately cease use of the Virtual Experience virtual reality equipment if you experience any of the following symptoms: seizures, loss of awareness, eye strain, eye or muscle twitching, involuntary movements, altered, blurred, or double vision or other visual abnormalities, dizziness, disorientation, impaired balance, impaired hand-eye coordination, excessive sweating, increased salivation, nausea, light-headedness, discomfort or pain in the head or eyes, drowsiness, fatigue, or any symptoms similar to motion sickness. Consult a physician if you have serious and/or persistent symptoms.

7.       Anyone who has had a seizure, loss of awareness, or other symptoms linked to an epileptic condition should consult a physician before using the Virtual Experience virtual reality equipment.

8.       Virtual Experience virtual reality equipment can emit radio waves that can affect the operation of nearby electronics, including cardiac pacemakers. If you have a pacemaker or other implanted medical device, do not use the Virtual Experience virtual reality equipment without first consulting your physician or the manufacturer of your medical device.

9.       Symptoms of virtual reality exposure can persist and become more apparent hours after use. These post-use symptoms can include the symptoms above, as well as excessive drowsiness and decreased ability to multi-task. These symptoms may put you at an increased risk of injury when engaging in normal activities in the real world. Do not drive, operate machinery, or engage in other visually or physically demanding activities that have potentially serious consequences (i.e., activities in which experiencing any symptoms could lead to death, personal injury, or damage to property), or other activities that require unimpaired balance and hand-eye coordination (such as playing sports or riding a bicycle, etc.) until you have fully recovered from any symptoms.

10.    Food and drink are not permitted within the virtual reality gaming stations.

11.    Users may also be required to calibrate the Virtual Experience virtual reality equipment prior to beginning their session. The calibration of the Virtual Experience virtual reality equipment may take up a portion of the User’s scheduled booking at the Premises.\
