Frequently Asked Questions
ABOUT THE GAME
From 1 to 5 players at the same time. The games of red Helmet have been designed to be enjoyed by 1 up 5 people simultaneously. You can play alone, with your friends or join another group to make 5 players. The difficulty of the game adapts to the number of players; that is why you will enjoy regardless of the number of people playing.
No. Reservation slots are open until all 5 places have been occupied. If you reserve for less than 5 people, it is possible that other participants who want to play at the same time than you join the team.
For groups larger than 5 people, we recommend you to contact us to better adjust our activities to your needs.
We can offer company packs or large-groups packs. We can afford to have groups up to 15 people dividied into small groups which compete against each other in several experiences simultaneously. Unfortunately, under circumstances we can afford to have more than 5 people together in the same playing room. Contact us to know more about it if needed.
The experience is designed for adults. However, 13 year old kids or older are allowed to participate in the game, as long as they are accompained by a responsible adult who agrees to sign a security rules disclaimer. Kids under 13 years old are not allowed to play.
The game itself lasts 35 minutes, and the complete activity lasts 60 minutes. All players must arrive at our establishment at the exact time their game session begins.
Punctuality is essential in order to enjoy the full experience. Keep in mind that we have several sessions programmed per day, and no group can be affected due to the unpunctuality of a previous group. That is why, if you arrive up to 20 minutes late, you will only be able to play one of the two rounds of the game. If you are more than 20 minutes late, you will not be allowed to play and you will lose the sum paid for the reservation .
We recommend wearing comfortable, casual clothes. You do not need come in your sports outfit. The room is air-conditioned and the physical effort required to perform the activity is minimal, that is why you will feel more comfortable without wearing your jacket. You can leave your jacket and other personal belongings in the wardrobes.
You will be equipped with three devices: (1) Virtual Reality Glasses, (2) a computer-backpack, (3) a blaster.
Yes, you can use your glasses without any problem, although we recommend using contact lenses for more comfort. Normal-size corrective glasses fit inside our VR glasses. However, we recommend using contact lenses to avoid any movement of your glasses which could affect a correct vision during the game. Keep in mind that you will have the VR glasses positioned over your corrective glasses, which means that it will be difficult for you to access them to place them correctly (and even more holding your blaster!).
Of course! All our Game Masters can speak English and they will be glad to do so if you feel more comfortable playing in this language.

ABOUT VIRTUAL REALITY
Do not worry, no previous knowledge is required to participate and fully enjoy our Virtual Reality game. Once you arrive at our establishment, we will explain everything you need to know to play and enjoy.
You will rarely feel any sickness. Our Virtual Reality glasses can, and must, be correctly adjusted before starting the game. Wearing them not properly adjusted is the most frequent cause of sickness. That is why, before starting the game, we count with enough time to correctly equip each player and adjust their glasses comfortably.
A frequent factor which may cause sickness is the quality of the graphical content and of the devices used. Red Helmet works with high quality VR glasses and designs its own content, thus adapting it to the physical surroundings the player will encounter. That is why it is very infrequent to feel any sort of sickness.
In any case, if you feel sick at any point during the fame, do not hesitate to contact your Game Master. He or she will help you to feel fully comfortable again.
The games we have designed are unfortunately not adapted to people with limited mobility. Participants must be able to walk and move independently inside the room with the VR glasses on for the 35 minutes the game lasts. Moreover, they must be able to carry the 2kg computer- backpack and hold a 0.5kg blaster on their hands.
As your Game Master will explain, there are certain alarm systems to avoid hitting a player, a wall or any physical object located inside the room. If you do not follow these alarm systems you could have a collision with something or someone. However, if you behave with common sense there won’t be any problem.
