HeadRock VR on Sentosa is Singapore’s First-Ever VR Theme Park. From bungee jumping to river rafting and bobsled rides, it’s adrenaline-pumping indoor play for older kids.

If you’ve made the Singapore theme park rounds a time or two before – from Universal Studios, to the Zoo, to Wild Wild Wet – there’s a new attraction in town to check out with the kiddos over school holidays, mama!

Fresh from South Korea, HeadRock VR is a new virtual reality theme park that allows you to go river rafting with dinosaurs, teeter at the top of skyscrapers, or bungee jump into volcanoes. Seriously mama, I did all three! (In fact I was so freaked out by the realism of the skyscraper game that I had to take my headset off. In related news, I’m not great with heights.)

Geared toward anyone age 6 and up, HeadRock VR features 11 different rides and attractions. My hands-down favorite was Jungle Rafting, the aforementioned raft ride where you catapult down waterfalls alongside friendly dinosaurs, all the while getting spritzed with water by a diligent ride attendant.

My colleague Sam and I also both enjoyed Flying Dive, where you strap into a real harness and drop suddenly (a few times!) into the top of volcano. We didn’t try out Jump Jump, which is a similar set-up where you bungee jump through a jungle that also looked really fun.

All of these were quite kid-friendly, as is Beat Saber, a virtual dance game. Meanwhile, Storm Blizzard, in which you take a bumpy bobsled ride through a windy mountain pass, features a decent amount of gun violence (another character repeatedly shoots bears and other animals). In my opinion this did nothing to add to the enjoyment of the ride. It also made me kinda dizzy!

Skyscraper and Zombie Busters (which I didn’t try) also require you to actively shoot at things with a gun – perhaps not ideal for a 6-year-old, but probably would be super fun for a tween video game enthusiast.

Extreme Train is one of the park’s most popular attractions, but it was unfortunately under maintenance when we visited. Other rides include Horror Room (too scary for this mama!), Robin Hood (Archery game) and VR Room, where you can chooose from interactive experiences like “Bank Sheriff” (shooting bank robbers), “Shooting Warrior” (archery with monsters) and “Zombie Slasher” in a virtual graveyard.

HeadRock VR feels like an arcade; it’s a dark, windowless room with lots of neon lights and loud noises. There are a variety of ticket options where you can choose three, five or seven rides. You’re then given a mask to wear over your eyes, which keeps things sanitary as you slip on various VR headsets. On the afternoon that we visited, it wasn’t too crowded and we never had to wait more than a couple minutes for a ride.

So if you’re keen to see what the future will be like, mama, and find yourself after a nice air-conditioned activity on a rainy day, give HeadSpace VR a try. I’d say you could easily be in and out in about an hour. There’s certainly nothing else like it in Singapore!

Tickets: available available on SISTIC or at the door; prices start from $35 per person (for three rides) and go up to $65 (for seven rides), with family discounts available.
