Tyffonium VR in Tokyo
Located in the same mall and even at the same floor as hexaRide, the Tyffonium is an amazing 10~15 minute experience for those who like to walk or float around in VR worlds. They have around 5 different titles that sometimes change, but they mostly revolve around mild or explicit horror. We tried the Corridor, and we can promise you that it will scare you silly! The VR equipment is more advanced than that of most VR rides, as you can see your ‘own body’ inside the game which makes it feel that much more real. If you are not into horror, you can try the less scary titles that are also geared towards kids.
