These experiences let you shoot aliens while riding a real-life roller coaster, cook a meal with a Japanese heartthrob or cozy up to players and cheerleaders at a baseball game.
One day, home VR systems will likely be common enough to make VR destinations unnecessary, just as video-game arcades are now rare. For now, though, these public attractions offer your best chance at giving you a taste of VR.
