Group hangs have just got a little more interesting, thanks to a couple of new entertainment experiences that have landed at Archie Brothers Cirque Electriq's Docklands outpost. In the heart of The District, Funlab's 'hospo-tainment' hub has unveiled two new immersive games that promise to tempt you and your crew off the couch this winter.

First up, there's the Zero Latency Virtual Reality experience — a heart-pumping free-roam VR game that's built on the latest zero-latency tech, boasting 5K resolution graphics and 3D spatial audio to really mess with your sense of reality. Pop on a headset and take on one of eight different immersive game scenarios, using your controller to battle killer robots ('Singularity'), fight off zombies ('Undead Arena') or even defy gravity ('Engineerium').

Developed in conjunction with Taiwan-based tech giant and international VR masters HTC, and played in an arena the size of a tennis court, it's a gaming experience that's destined to impress.

For some slightly more reality-based thrills, you can hop around to the precinct's new laser tag, where you'll need to duck and dive away from your mates' laser attacks while maneuvering around an arena that's decked out like an abandoned carnival.

The two new experiences join Archie Brothers' existing offering of arcade games, ten-pin bowling, bumper cars and other indoor entertainment. And if fending off all those virtual zombies leaves you in need of a refuel, there's a menu of sandos, burgers and riotous circus-themed cocktails to keep you going.

Play the new Laser Tag and Zero Latency Virtual Reality games at Archie Brothers Cirque Electriq, The District, 440 Docklands Drive, Docklands. Book online via the website.
