HONOLULU (October 27, 2022) – Have you ever dreamed of flying? Chambers Escape Games is making the dream of flying a (virtual) reality, with the help of Birdly®, their new, state-of-the-art virtual reality flight simulator.
Birdly® combines robotics and simulation technology – including full-range headwind simulation, 3D audio, and visual impact – allowing guests to enjoy every aspect of the avian experience: from the wind beneath your wings to a bird’s-eye view of some of the richest landscapes in the digital world.
“We’re thrilled to bring this innovative virtual reality attraction to the islands and offer visitors and local residents an immersive, full-body experience of what it feels like to take to the skies,” said Ron Bronstein, founder and co-owner of Chambers Escape Games.
While typical “flight” simulators give the experience of operating aircrafts, Birdly® simulates the actual experience of full-body flight – as a wingsuit flyer racing through alpine valleys, or a pterodactyl soaring over prehistoric landscapes. Rather than fussing with joysticks and buttons, Birdly® flyers simply spread their arms and hands across mechanical wings, and the simulator will pitch, roll, weave, and move intuitively to the flyer’s every control. A premium, virtual reality headset provides high-resolution visuals, while a front-mounted fan simulates the wind in your face.
Such high-tech immersion is no small feat: this Swiss-engineered device is a $100,000 piece of equipment, of which there are only a handful across United States.
Chambers Escape Games is making this thrill of flying affordable and accessible, offering flights of up to three minutes at reduced rates: $9 for a single flight, $16 for two flights, and $20 for three flights. Birdly® can be purchased as a standalone experience or as an add-on before or after an escape room. Birdly® is the newest addition to Chambers Escape Games’ library of innovate attractions.
Currently entering its third year as the #1 Top-Rated Escape Room in Hawaii (with a 5.0 star rating across Google, Yelp, and TripAdvisor) Chambers has captivated over 25,000 players to date with their live-action and virtual reality escape room experiences.
The virtual reality escape rooms utilize advanced free-roam and room-scale technology, which allow multiple players to play together in the same virtual and physical space. Combining high-end graphics and environmental realism with full, untethered mobility, players can float in outer space, dive under the ocean, and even battle dragons in one of seven highly immersive virtual reality adventures.
Despite the popularity of their various virtual reality experiences, Chambers’ flagship attraction is their physical, live-action escape room: “The Temple.” Created and designed by Ron Bronstein, it is what’s known in the industry as a “third generation” escape room (currently the only one in Hawaii) boasting detailed theming and set design, high-tech puzzles and special effects, and intricate gameplay that creates a cinematic experience for players.
Together, their live-action and virtual reality escape rooms comprise the unique value offering behind the Chambers Escape Games brand: premium game experiences that bring together immersive environments, advanced technology, and user-focused gameplay. The escape games are popular with players of all ages, from keiki to kupuna, and are perfect for family outings, date nights, birthdays, team-building events, or just a fun adventure with friends.
Chambers Escape Games is located between Kaka’ako and Downtown at 550 Halekauwila Street.
