NUREMBERG, Germany -- Spree Interactive reports achieving unprecedented results with the company's VR attraction during the grand reopening of Airtime Trampoline Park here on Sept. 20.


The reopening included the debut of a new VR-dedicated area in which the Spree VR arena is the anchor attraction. The VR Arena allows up to 20 people simultaneously to enjoy virtual-reality experiences in an interactive, fun group setting, According to the company, it's the highest throughput location-based VR system on the market.

For Airtime, like many location-based entertainment businesses around the world, birthday parties make up a large percentage of revenue -- in Airtime's case, birthdays account for 40% of the business, so an attraction like Spree Interactive which caters specifically to this segment is highly relevant and profitable. Airtime now offers a VR birthday package.

"We are very happy to provide this brand-new attraction from Spree Interactive to our customers,'' noted Anne Busch, Airtime's marketing lead. "We were able to serve more than 50 birthday parties in one day, with an average of more than 10 participants per group. Spree is a highly profitable offering for us."

The Airtime reopening also saw the general release of "Extreme Anteater," the first VR game 100% produced in-house by Spree Interactive. Extreme Anteater is an easy-to-play casual game that everyone can enjoy. It transports players into a unique world for several minutes of fun and social interaction. Its VR content is tailored for the younger audience found at trampoline parks. Given Spree Interactive's high-throughput attraction, this makes it ideal for kids' birthday parties.

"This is a great milestone for us, as we are designing content that not only entertains and amazes players, but it is also well suited to create great business opportunities for our partners,'' noted Spree Interactive VR content director Sarah Stief. "Kids and adults alike just fall in love with the Extreme Anteater game."

Following a successful product showing at the recent IAAPA Europe Expo, Spree Interactive plans to announce additional installations in collaboration with major operators. Spree will exhibit at the 2020 IAAPA Expo (Orlando, FL) in November.

Spree Interactive, formerly known as Holodeck VR, is a pioneer and leader in delivering turnkey large-scale, multiplayer, free-roaming commercial VR attraction systems for the location-based entertainment industry. It is said to be the only location-based entertainment VR massive-scale technology platform that's explicitly open to all third-party content developers. The company offers complete solutions that can be installed quickly and operated efficiently. Spree's distribution partners market these solutions to location verticals including shopping malls, family entertainment centers, theme parks, casinos, sports centers, resorts, water parks and cruise ships.

Spree Interactive reports that it recently received a substantial investment from media giant ProSiebenSat.1 to expand its platform and its location network.

THE MORE, THE MERRIER: Spree's Holodeck VR system can accommodate as many as 20 players in a "free-roam" virtual world. Here, six of them celebrate after completing a round of Anteater, Spree's new game for younger patrons, at Nuremberg's Airtime Trampoline Park.
