About EVA



Pushing the boundaries of technology, players are equipped with virtual reality headsets and are able to move freely in a vast space at the center of the stadium.

In the playing zone, competitive matches could take place in teams of up to 16 players on After-H, an esports game in virtual reality, developed in-house by EVA.

A Next Level Laser Tag Game In Virtual Reality

From 200m2 to 3000m2, the EVA STADIUM offers a full experience by bringing VR ESPORTS and spectator experience together for a true spectacle. Thanks to the bleachers and gigantic screens, the EVA STADIUM is always ready for tournaments and events.


More than a classic playground, EVA offers a full package uniting a unique gaming experience with a comfortable area to have a snack, a drink, and enjoy the show.

A platform allows shoutcasters to comment on games and live stream on social media. This will help boost the community and esports aspects of the room.

This will also increase the time spent by the customers in the arcade room and the opportunity to maximize profit by upselling.

Unlike typical laser tag games, it would be a place of entertainment not just for the players, but for all visitors.


The EVA stadium is both a state-of-the-art immersive player versus player experience and a first class esports spectacle.

Consist of a huge playground up to 3000m2 large, surrounded by bleachers, the arena can be accommodated up to 500 spectators. They will be able to witness the player’s every move while following the in-game view on gigantic LED screens during the game.

We have also integrated a platform dedicated to the shoutcasters who will provide live commentaries on the game, making this place of entertainment like no other.
