During the summer, Montreal is full of activities and sometimes it can be hard to choose which one will fully offer a unique experience. Which is why we were excited to try out Horos, a new virtual reality experience next to the Montreal Science Center. The interesting concept puts the user into a limitless universe of different worlds, as they try and find clues to progress onto the next quest. I must say it’s mind-blowing and reminded me a lot of the Matrix as you can move in time and space and interact with different objects. What I found so cool was the multiplayer experience. Meaning, you and your friend are in the scene together. I’ve never experienced anything like this. 

The experience allows you to move in an enclosed area and interact with real-life objects unlike any other at-home VR game

Bonus – For a limited time, Horos by Phenomena is offering a contest on their social media platforms for a chance to try out the experience for free and win a 50$ gift card for any Cominar shopping center, here.

Phenomena are the masterminds behind the creation of this VR expedition.
