Looking to support local companies? Our latest entrepreneur, FlipSwitch VR, has a location in the Crossroads and the owners are KC natives as well. More information on this company can be found below:
Jim and Jamie Mahoney, dad & son duo, are the founders of FlipSwitch VR. With a background in mechanical and architectural engineering, the duo wanted to create a complete immersion experience for their audience. When starting the business in 2017, both had no gaming development knowledge. They reached out to local college students to help with programing and other aspects of the game development. However, once they created the interface, they faced challenges with tracking movement and motion sickness. Once these items were resolved, the game was ready for opening day in 2018. Today, their location offers a free-roaming, multi-player gaming experience with escape room, skeleton v pirate, zombie fighting, and paintball games. Find out more about FlipSwitch VR here.
