A new, high-tech entertainment arcade/venue has just opened in Palm Springs, CA, providing Virtual Reality Games and Experiences, along with Virtual Reality Escape Games.

Seeing a need for more amusement options in the greater Palm Springs area, especially for kids, the owner, Derek Etten, wanted to bring a unique, fun, high-tech entertainment/amusement option to the valley.

With a background of over 35 years in the computer industry, and interests in programming, gaming, video production, entertainment, and tech, Derek has found a great outlet for his interests, in order to provide an enjoyable experience for those who want to try something fun, new, and high-tech.

Derek says, “I’m proud and thrilled to bring a new, fun, family friendly entertainment business to the greater Palm Springs area, as I’ve heard from many local people about the need for more entertainment options, especially for kids.


“I’ve been a tech geek most of my life, growing up with computers and gaming, so really enjoy being in a high-tech business that brings smiles and enjoyment to everyone I’ve seen try it.

“Virtual Reality has been around for over 20 years, but within the past few years the headset technology has greatly improved.  More and more high end developers have been creating games and experiences, so we are seeing more, and better quality games for VR.

“VR is becoming more prevalent in the general public too, thanks to Facebook, now Meta, acquiring Oculus and really pushing their VR equipment, the ‘Quest’, and the VR message to the masses.  This makes me very excited about the future of VR, as a lot of great things are happening, even though we’re still just seeing the tip of the iceberg in the VR realm.”

The Arcade/Venue has 5 Virtual Reality stations as well as extra room to accommodate parties, groups, and events, and is located just minutes from downtown Palm Springs, at 905 Crossley Rd., so is easily accessible to cities in the Coachella Valley and surrounding areas.

Featuring high end virtual reality hardware and software, PRO VR USA provides a new entertainment experience for ALL ages and interests, including everything from a gentle stroll through the savannah hanging out with elephants and giraffes, swimming in the ocean with a humpback whale, exploring our world in Google Earth™ to using a bow and arrow to fend off orcs, ogres, goblins, and dragons from destroying your town, to surviving and taking out the zombie hordes.

PRO VR USA also exclusively offers Virtual Reality Escape Games, for 2-4 persons, from a premier software developer, Ubisoft, the creator of such popular games as Assassin’s Creed, Prince of Persia, Far Cry, and Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six and Ghost Recon.  The Escape Games are set in the realms of Assassin’s Creed Origins and Odyssey, and Prince of Persia, with a newly released game set in Paris, saving Notre Dame from burning to the ground.  These games offer a unique Virtual Reality experience, with incredible graphics, and take about 1 hour to complete.

The virtual reality arcade provides a new, fun, exciting option for date night, team building, parties, family night, or just a night out with friends, as there are plenty of options ranging from kid friendly to hardcore VR gaming, with multi-player options for couples and groups.
