New virtual reality arcade opens in Greece


6/21/2018

GREECE, NY (WROC) - A brand new arcade in the Rochester area is giving many people the chance to experience virtual reality for the first time.

It's called Virtuosity and it's located at the Mall at Greece Ridge.

Making it even more unique: The arcade is the only business like it in the Rochester-area that is both female and minority-owned.

Lori Thomas is a retired teacher. She says she opened the arcade because she wants to bring virtual reality to everyone despite their financial, physical or mental limitations.

"We had a young man who had been in a wheelchair all of his life and he was able to ride a roller coaster for the first time and that's so rewarding and that's what i want to bring to the community,” says Thomas. “I want to bring that enjoyment of life that everyone can experience."

Virtuosity has five virtual reality stations in which people can play games or enjoy simulations.

It's located across from Lenscrafters at the Mall at Greece Ridge.
