Dave & Buster's Engages VRstudios for Sourcing and System Integration
of New Proprietary VR Attraction

VRstudios®, the leading provider of commercial-grade, wireless,
multiplayer virtual reality (VR) turnkey solutions for Location-Based
Entertainment (LBE) businesses, announced today the deployment of their
VRcade® Attraction Management Platform (AMP™) to operate and manage the
new Dave & Buster's multiplayer VR attraction platform, featuring
Jurassic World. AMP's cloud-based architecture and enterprise features
enable it to centrally manage and power the attraction at over 110
locations, making it the world's largest deployment of commercial
multiplayer VR.

The AMP deployment is the result of a larger project between VRstudios
and Dave & Buster's. Working together from the inception of the new VR
attraction project, VRstudios was entrusted to manage the sourcing and
integration of all the key components of the attraction including the
proprietary simulator, VR hardware, motion control software, content and
management platform. In addition, the two companies continue to work
together to produce additional content experiences for the custom system.

The Dave & Buster's deployment benefits from the AMP strategy to deliver
an enterprise-class management platform specifically designed for LBE
operators, by integrating best-in-class hardware, software and
commercial VR content, combined with multiple customizations to enable a
turnkey solution, streamline the deployment and simplify the daily
operations. AMP is the centralized user interface for the proprietary
system including integrations for motion control, system operation,
status monitoring, content management and customer line management with
SMS notifications. The local operator runs the attraction through a
small tablet with touchscreen access to functionality locked to the
profile of the specific employee. AMP's enterprise employee management
module also enables centralized tracking and logins for hundreds of
employees across all the Dave & Buster's locations.

"We are honored to be a trusted partner to Dave & Buster's, the leading
restaurant/entertainment complexes in North America," said Kevin Vitale,
VRstudios CEO. "Their new attraction is a breakthrough for extending
commercial availability of true multiplayer virtual reality to locations
around the country. AMP enables the seamless integration of technology
and content from best-in-class providers including Hewlett-Packard, HTC,
Universal Studios and The Virtual Reality Company."

"We've been very thoughtful and particular about how we introduce VR
attractions to our stores, and it was critical that we engage with a
trusted partner and technology leader in commercial VR systems," said
Kevin Bachus, SVP Entertainment & Games Strategy. "We have a
longstanding relationship with VRstudios. They are a pioneer of
multiplayer VR attractions for location-based entertainment, and we've
capitalized on that experience for both their enterprise technology and
managing the large-scale integration of our unique attraction."

The new Jurassic World VR Expedition will be available starting on June
14 at all Dave & Buster's locations.
