Resort Reality

POCONO MANOR, MONROE COUNTY (WBRE/WOU) You can be part of a virtual reality game like you've probably never experienced before  You won't be picking up a controller and playing a video game.
     Instead,  it's like jumping through the screen and interacting in the game yourself.
     Eyewitness News Reporter Brianna Strunk geared up to give it a try.

"The Arena" inside Kalahari Resorts in Pocono Manor is an interactive game you have to experience for yourself.

 
"This is the ultimate virtual reality experience and it's like none other" said Cary Brandt, the Corporate Creative Director at Kalahari Resorts.
 

Eyewitness News Reporter Brianna Strunk decided to put on some gear and try it out.

 
In this particular 12 minute game, six teammates communicate through a headset and work together battling zombies.

 

While you see just a bare room.... through headsets Brianna and the other players saw an entirely different digital world.

 
"You are literally in an environment where you can run, duck." added Brandt when describing the game

With a weapon, we're shooting at zombies running towards us.
It's a race against time.... we have to be on the lookout for zombie's before they attack.

 
"It's a full on assault zombie game like you'd see on an xbox one, but on steroids because it's all around you!" noted Brandt

 Once you put on the headset you feel like your in a different world! In the game you can take an elevator to different floors but in reality your feet aren't leaving this ground

Kevin Kunzmann with the Pocono Record tried the game himself during our media tour Thursday.

 
  
His reaction, "It was very real, but in the most fun way possible"

He adds "The arena" is something you don't want to miss"  He noted  "It was crazier than any video game I ever played in my life!"

A unique, one-of-a-kind experience all inside a local resort.
Kalahari switches their games every few months.
 It's now open to the public for 25-dollars per game.
