Waterloo-based VR arcade expanding with 10 new locations across Canada


A virtual reality arcade called ‘Ctrl V‘ based in Waterloo, Ontario, has announced it plans to open 10 new locations across Canada in the next eight months, following a successful launch seven months ago.

So far, the company has two operating locations: its flagship arcade in Waterloo and an arcade in Guelph, Ontario.

Its website shows an arcade opening soon in Red Deer, Alberta and the company’s CFO Robert Bruski says there are more Calgary locations coming, specifically naming Regina, Saskatoon, Lethbridge, Kelowna, Kamloops and Calgary. Bruski didn’t mention whether the remaining arcade locations would also be in Canada’s west.

CTV News reports that the Waterloo location, which has 16 play areas and charges $25 per hour to play games like Job Simulator and Mars Odyssey, is sold out every weekend.
