We’re delighted to announce that we’ve re-opened our doors to customers and can’t wait to welcome you back…  with a few changes.

Taking government Covid-19 safety guidelines into account, we’re now operating our centres in a new,
carefully planned environment where your safety is our top priority
and strict hygiene standards are maintained at all times.

We’re also running with new safety precautions on activities which means escape rooms and VR games are now limited to six people, and there will be up to an hour between bookings so that all rooms and equipment can be thoroughly cleaned.

For more information on all our Covid-19 safety measures, please click here

We’re also offering KIDS PARTIES once more, for a maximum of six children.

Alternatively you can also try one of our new, OUTSIDE GAMES, which don’t compromise on
the need to social distance, or your enjoyment 🙂


 Back by popular demand!  Our Nerf War battle-zone is re-opening at VIRE Bishop’s Stortford on 1 October, with strict new hygiene measures and a maximum of 6 players at any one time.

Great fun as a stand alone activity or as part of a kids party!  CLICK HERE TO FIND OUT MORE

If you find yourself searching for totally different things to do near you, or want to find a fantastic idea for a birthday party or corporate event, you’ve come to the right place!

Vire is a successful multi-activity concept offering original, edgy activities all under one roof, with three separate locations in Aylesbury, Bishop’s Stortford and Hemel Hempstead.

Choose from brilliantly challenging escape rooms; amazing Virtual Reality games experienced via some of the latest high-tech VR equipment; or battle it out in one of our purpose-built Nerf War zones with unlimited Nerf darts.*

When the action’s finished, relax in one of our welcoming cafes with freshly baked pizza or one of our legendary hot chocolates, the ‘Speciality of the House’.

Due to current restrictions around Covid-19, our Nerf zones will remain closed until further notice.


Locked inside a themed room for one hour, you’ll need to solve puzzles, riddles and clues to escape and win the game. Will you succeed?  From a haunted house to a nuclear countdown, our escape room games will get your mind racing and adrenaline pumping.
