Exciting news for gamers and VR fans in the Evansville area.  Skillz VR, which already has a location inside Towne Square Mall in Owensboro, has announced it will open a second location inside Eastland Mall!  

According to Skillz VR owner Brent Feher, the new Skillz VR arcade will occupy the former Boot Barn location at Eastland mall and he hopes to have the Evansville site open to the public by April 1st of this year.

Evansville's Skillz VR will be much like the Owensboro arcade, but will offer even more stations and some brand new virtual reality experiences.  Here's an idea of what you can expect . . .

And this is exciting as well.  Skillz VR Evansville, like Owensboro, will be open until midnight on Fridays and Saturdays.  Those hours will make the location the first in the history of Eastland Mall to have "after hours."

Last October, I had the chance to tour a virtual haunted house at Skillz VR.  It was so much fun!!

So, if you live in the Evansville area and want to experience a true virtual reality arcade, your chance is just a couple of months away!
