VR for Everyone

REM5 was started by Amir Berenjian and Travis Hoium. Amir spent over a decade as an investment banker before getting hooked on VR. Travis holds a degree in engineering and, after earning his MBA, worked as an investment analyst for The Motley Fool, where he began covering VR. They created REM5 to bring premium virtual reality to consumers, businesses, and students in Minneapolis. Every aspect of REM5 is built upon their passion for knocking down the existing accessibility barriers and allowing everyone a chance to play, explore, learn and create in VR.

REM5 is the Star Tribune’s Reader’s Choice 2021 Gold Award Winner for Minnesota’s Best Children’s Birthday Party Venue, Family Fun Center, Date Night Spot and Corporate Party/Activity.

Play

Guests reserve a VR pod (perfect for up to 5 players) in 30-min increments, don a Vive Pro VR headset and controllers, and then immerse themselves in a wide-variety of virtual worlds. Some of the many experiences include:

  • Arizona Sunshine – Step into the midst of a zombie apocalypse and shoot your way through hordes of undead.
  • Beat Saber – A VR rhythm game where your goal is to slash floating blocks with lightsabers in time to precisely handcrafted music.
  • Everyday Golf VR – Play golf, but without your natural slice! ​
  • Google Earth – Stroll the streets of Tokyo, soar over Yosemite, or teleport across the globe.
  • Richie’s Plank – You’re on a plank, 80 stories high. Knees shaky, palms sweaty. You have a choice – do you walk out or do you freeze? 
  • Tilt Brush – Paint in 3D space with three-dimensional brush strokes, stars, light, and even fire. 
  • Spider-Man Far From Home – Scale and swing from the highest towers in Manhattan as you try to find and confront New York’s latest enemy.

Choose from over 20 games. REM5 also offers a library of educational content, health and wellness, and training materials for schools and corporate groups.

In order to participate in any of the VR experiences at REM5, all guests must sign a waiver and release of liability form.  For those under the age of 18, the form should be completed by a parent or guardian.
