Using motion technology, the high-energy, four-player system is the only attraction that allows guests to experience running in virtual reality. Enhancing the guests overall experience, the attraction includes a built-in staging area with 8 seats, 11 TVs, 11 touchscreens, pre- and post-game show and recorded gameplay video for social sharing. Players have the option of 4 games ranging from co-operative arena-style shooters to player-vs-player deathmatch games. More than 300 guests played Omni Arena in its first week of operation.
