HYPD to bring Thrilling Virtual Reality Experiences to Bluewater this Christmas

Monday 4th November 2019: Leading gaming events company HYPD will bring a unique and unforgettable video gaming attraction to Bluewater shoppers this Christmas. Opening this November, HYPD Arena will be located in the shopping centre’s Upper Mall and will feature an eclectic mix of amazing Virtual Reality gaming experiences for all ages and interests.

Trading across the festive period, the pop-up arcade will be complete with Christmas themed games including Merry Snowballs - a high-octane, fast-paced snowball fight simulator. Other highlighted games include the nerve-shredding terror of Affected: The Manor, lightsaber-swinging rhythm party Beat Saber, and Richie’s Plank Experience, which dares players to step out into the abyss as you stand atop of a skyscraper.

Chris Haydon, Chief Operating Officer at HYPD, said: “We’re absolutely delighted to be opening HYPD Arena at Bluewater. As a Kent-based business, having the opportunity to trade at the county’s biggest and best shopping centre is a true privilege. Christmas is such a wonderful period for family and friends, and we’re confident our envelope-pushing Virtual Reality experiences will create unforgettable memories for all to cherish this festive season”.

Virtual Reality gaming offers players an unmistakable sense of immersion as they step inside the game like never before. HYPD Arena will feature technologies from leading manufacturers HTC Vive and Alienware from Dell. The arena will also enable customers to get hands-on with the cutting edge Vive Cosmos headset, which features fully wireless play capability - expanding the scale and world of the game tenfold.

HYPD arrive at Bluewater following a hugely successful year, in which their coveted gaming arenas have opened across several major tourism attractions in the United Kingdom, including THORPE PARK Resort in Chertsey, Surry. HYPD Arena will offer Christmas shoppers a competitive price for the state-of-the-art attractions, with experiences starting from as little as £10.

HYPD Arena at Bluewater will trade from November until late January 2020. Customers are invited to register their interest for the attraction and receive exclusive discounts at hypdlaunch.com
