Frequently Asked Questions

Let’s figure this out together.


 How do the gaming bays work?

Ever been bowling?
Well, at Spark, you play in a “VR bay” rather than a lane, and from that bay, you and your friends take turns playing our selection of virtual reality experiences!

(Who can play?)

Is there an age or height requirement?
We allow all ages, but we do have a 56” minimum height requirement for participating. Spectators may be any age or height.

Can I play if I wear glasses?
Absolutely! Most glasses will fit inside of our VR headsets. However, if you do have contacts, we have found that they are more comfortable.

Can I play in a wheelchair?
Yes you can! Our gaming side is entirely wheelchair accessible, so you will be able to play most games. The racing simulators are more challenging to enter, so are handled on a case by case basis. Stop by anytime and let one of our staff know if you would like to test if it works for you!

Will I be able to play if I’ve never tried VR before?
Our favorite guests are those that haven’t tried VR before because we pride ourselves on making VR accessible for everyone! You’ll have a great time.

 Spark’s Origins

(How did Spark come to be?)

Spark Virtual Reality (Spark VR) is the creation of Matthew McGivern and Joseph Eilert. Matt and Joe lived across the hall from each other freshman year at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. Matt is a graduate of Rensselaer's business school while Joe studied engineering, but both are passionate about creating a perfect guest experience. The idea for Spark VR was born in the Spring of 2016 and has been evolving ever since.
