You can now walk with dinosaurs, take a skydive or join a shoot-out on a Norfolk industrial estate.
A new virtual reality gaming has opened in King's Lynn, offering players the latest hi-tech experience.
Jason Fey, his wife Paula and sons Luke, 20 and Callum, 12, have launched the business on Paxman Road, on the Hardwick Industrial Estate.
Players wear headsets which immerse them in everything from haunted houses to undersea voyages.
Mr Fey, 51, from Downham Market, wanted to move on from building robots for the pharmaceutical industry, which meant he was often abroad.
