It's a pretty simple premise, you pay $5.00 to walk a 6 foot plank which hangs 160 meters in the air but only in Virtual Reality. In real life the plank sits just a couple of inches off the ground. If you make it across and back within the allotted 2 minute time limit, you win yourself 50% off an hour of a rental of a Virtual Reality Station to be redeemed anytime. Sounds easy, doesn't it? Just $5 and potentially save $20. Just be careful not to fall to your death* as you can only try this once.

We completely understand if you're not ready to take the challenge, but you are still welcome to come down and watch others for free as they brave the the heights and Walk the Plank! Take photos, take videos, post to all your social media, encourage others to take this crazy risk.

*Although in most cases, dying in VR does not cause death in real life, we have some padding around just in case.

Discount cannot be combined with other offers and must be used all on one session.
