"Arrived at Anvio and was greeted by a large, tranquil, empty room. Received a warm welcome from an Anvio consultant, who asked us to wait for our allotted time. We were then shown to the game room. The tech team were great and explained everything in the briefing. Once in the game, it was so impressive we forgot there was an actual strategy. Untethered and space to walk around, it was a stunning game with amazing landscape and terrain graphics. Cannot recommend this highly enough. Anvio has taken the VR experience to another level. Already looking to book again."
