Bloomington, Il – There’s a new power player in Bloomington’s gaming world.
“You know it’s not where you’re just sitting in front of the computer,” said Johnnette Palumbo. “Now you’re in a virtual reality world.”
Palumbo and her team are bringing the innovative and interactive concept of virtual reality to life with her new business, MassVR. In the space you’ll find single and multi-player gaming simulators, along with a 4,000 sq. ft., free-roaming VR arena. Palumbo says she and her husband came up with the multi-part business idea after a visit to a similar VR arena in Chicago.
“So I started researching and researching and there’s no where in the United States that has simulators like this except for Universal Studios and I was not going to pay that kind of money,” she said.
