Excalibur VR is a new virtual reality game room and more, located right on Egg Harbor Road in Washington Township! They opened about 2 months ago, and we stopped in recently to check out what they are all about!
It’s a heck of a lot of fun, and when you have a great time there.. you are also helping out a Township family, as this fun center is owned by Washington Township’s own Allen Family!
Excalibur VR is located in the Acme Shopping Center on Egg Harbor Road. They bring a fun element to a center that has many options for delicious food and snacks! It makes for a fun one-two combination.
Make a fun day right in Washington Township starting with Excalibur VR and then heading a minute away to get a meal or snack at Pasta Pomodoro, Chipotle, First Watch, Bistro Di Marino, Bruster’s Ice Cream, Cold Stone Creamery… And many more options!
Summer Hours are in place: Thurs-Sunday 12pm-9pm
You can just walk in, but they also accept reservations online or via telephone. 856-716-6321
In our visit a few weeks ago, we chatted a few minutes with the kid’s of the Allen Family… who are old enough to run the facility at times as they are Washington Township High School students!
Excalibur VR Gaming
We wrote about Excalibur back in April ahead of their May opening. If you aren’t familiar with Virtual Reality gaming, here is a quick refresher.
In many ways VR gaming is like playing a video game. I mean… it IS a video game!
But the big twist is instead of looking at a traditional screen, you wear google style headsets which have the screens embedded in them. It’s like little TV monitor glasses!
The setup includes motion and area sensors to track your head and hand movements.
The sophisticated computers can determine where you are looking and since your entire field of vision is in the computer screen, the game software can create 100% immersive virtual worlds.
The motion sensors are a key part to it, because as you turn your head to the left… the view in the goggles also turns, as if you are really inside this digital world looking around!
While it’s an illusion.. it quickly becomes very real! And this mind-vision trickery really gets fun when you add creative gaming software!
With the flip of a switch you are transported onto a pirate ship in the middle of the ocean, fighting other rival ships.
You can run a crazy cookie factory, in high speed virtual 3D!
How about a Wild West shootout with an alien twist?!
Or even a cute game of super hero Cat, flying around the city saving kittens?!
There really is something for everyone with Excalibur VR! All ages will find an exciting adventure to take!
Games, Cranes and More!
Sure you can check out Excalibur VR by yourself, but the best way to visit is with friends and family.
And chances are not everyone is in the VR world at the same time, so Excalibur offers other fun amusements.
They offer a few classic yet fun arcade games. Donkey Kong?! Pacman! Fast and the Furious racing!
They have “Crane Games” that every loves at the Jersey shore.
And even an air hockey table!

Pricing for the VR Gaming are primarily time based. Their website lists the most recent prices.
