A South African arcade dedicated to virtual reality gaming is posting hilarious videos of people doing stunts in VR.

The arcade is unlike anything South Africa has ever seen before. Instead of playing Street Fighter on button-based machines built in the 1980s, you can shoot zombies, have snowball fights with your friends, and diffuse bombs in a lifelike 360-degree experience.

South Africans are new to the immersive world of VR, which most people cannot afford at home as the equipment required to run it can cost thousands of rands.

Virtual Realms opened its doors at the end of December last year. It has been posting the videos on its social media accounts since then. The arcade offers a large bouquet of games for a starting price of R100 for 30 minutes.

The reactions as users duck and dive are priceless:
