Holoverse Hologram Entertainment Centres
Holoverse – Brisbane and the Gold Coast’s most amazing new hologram experience for kids
As featured on 97.3 with Robin, Terry and Bob
With Hologram Centres now open at Westfield Carindale and Surfers Paradise (Cavil Avenue, Gold Coast), Holoverse is a new hi-tech family hologram centre that allows your family to experience a wide variety of different hologram attractions – you’ve never seen anything like this before!
What is Holoverse?
Do your kids love their screens? Then you’ll love Holoverse, where your whole family can have a wonderful social experience together while enjoying their hologram experiences. Holoverse’s hologram experiences in Queensland are very popular and they have received 4.9 stars on Facebook reviews.
Perhaps you’ve seen holograms on movies like Star Wars, Avengers or Star Trek. Holograms look real and solid, but they are made of laser light. They float in the air and you can put your hand straight through them. Robin, Terry and Bob from 97.3 FM visited Holoverse recently and they were amazed by the experience – “HOLOVERSE Is Brisbane’s Next Big Thing In Technology” they said.
Kid-friendly Hologram Experiences
Holoverse has used amazing Hologram technology that was formerly very expensive and only available to universities and top science centres to create amazing kid-friendly hologram experiences. Each of their hologram experiences takes place in a COVID-safe private Hologram Room that can accommodate up to 6 people (family discounts available, kids under 4 can attend free if they accompany a paying grown-up).
Holoverse has a variety of different hologram experiences to choose from and they also have a Hologram Arcade where your family can play unique new Hologram Games to win prizes like an Apple watch or cool craft toys! Each hologram experience ticket is a package that also includes free credits for the Hologram Arcade that you can use while you wait to start your hologram experience.
Holoverse does book out very quickly during school holidays, so it’s important to book online at the Holoverse website to avoid disappointment.

Games include Rally Racer, Aerial Assault, Hungry Crocs, Cave Explorers, Catapults & Castles and Unicorns vs Narwhals. New games feature every school holidays. Each game goes for around 5 minutes.

They’ve greatly lowered the odds to make this a fun, rewarding arcade-style game for kids to play while they wait to start their hologram experiences.
NOT just games!
Holoverse’s hologram experiences are NOT just games – they are “social edutainment” experiences designed by Holoverse’s leading Brisbane hologram content studio and offer both amazing entertainment and in-depth holographic education for your kids. For example, in the Holographic Aquarium Experience, your kids will learn about how Parrotfish make sand, they will rescue baby turtle hatchlings from hungry Seagulls, etc. All of this is designed to interactively teach children about the wonderful world of nature in a kid-safe and very unique setting.

The package price for families is $32 per person, or $100 for a group of 4-6. Kids under 4 are free, as long as they accompany a grown-up to a paid session.

Bookings are NOT required and walk-ins are welcome to book at the front desk at Holoverse centres, however, they do strongly recommend that you book online to avoid disappointment as they fill up very quickly during the school holidays like all popular family attractions. You can book online using any credit card.
How long are the hologram experiences?
Each hologram experience is about 30 minutes, but, because hologram experience packages include free credits to the Hologram Arcade, most guests end up spending at least an hour there.
Is this safe for kids? Is it too scary?
All of Holoverse’s hologram experiences are carefully designed to be kid-friendly. They even test them with their own kids – they love coming to the office! The content is designed to be educational and is something that many school groups have enjoyed, while at the same time it is sophisticated enough that grown-ups will also learn something new and be amazed by the interactive hologram experiences.
The special hologram glasses that you wear are COVID-safe and Holverse has a smaller size available for young children. They designed these experiences for the enjoyment of their own families.
Is this virtual reality? Will my child wear a big helmet?
No, this definitely NOT virtual reality. Your child will only wear a small, comfortable pair of glasses, similar to sunglasses. You use a “wand” which is like a TV remote control to interact with the sea creatures and dinosaurs – they respond to your touch and move around. There is no big helmet to wear on your head and no cords attached to you at all – the whole experience is designed to be wireless and is designed to be friendly for younger children.
Are Holoverse centres wheelchair accessible?
YES, Holoverse centres are designed to be used easily by people in wheelchairs. There are no stairs.
Does Holoverse host birthday parties?
Absolutely! Holoverse has a dedicated Hologram Birthday Party Room with special hologram birthday software that will amaze your guests!
