Nuremberg, Germany, October 25, 2021 – SPREE Interactive, previously known as HolodeckVR, a global leader in multiplayer, free-roaming commercial VR attractions, amplify’s yearly sales by over 250% in the first three quarters of 2021. The tremendous growth has been achieved by the sales of SPREE’s range of free-roam multiplayer VR attractions such as the SPREE Arena and VR Bumper Car systems (licensed by VR Coaster).
“COVID has fueled even more demand from shopping malls which now desperately need alternate revenue streams and innovative ways to utilize the floor space especially with foot traffic fluctuating in various markets.” says Jonathan Nowak Delgado, Founder and Managing Director, SPREE Interactive. SPREE Interactive with its proprietary technology stack and attractive annual recurring licensing B2B SaaS business model is well-positioned to dominate the emerging Entertainment, Education, Sports multi-billion market.

All SPREE Interactive attractions boast a soaring throughput and high repeat play value with the average installation achieving over 3,500 plays a week. The exceptionally high-player level leads SPREE to becoming a substantial leader in the market, offering clients a valuable return on investment.
Earlier this year, SPREE Interactive started to double-down on the high-growth eSports market by providing all-in-one free-roam custom-solutions to the location-based entertainment market through their global partnership with Pico Interactive, creators of the Neo 2 headset that was named to TIME’s Best Inventions of 2020 List and recently bought by Byte Dance, creators of TikTok .
With over 3 billion gamers globally by 2023, global VR gaming market estimated to reach $92.31 billion by 2027, esports revenues estimated to reach $1.5B by 2023, combined with increased foot traffic across a variety of retail locations, the company’s entrance to the eSports market is a strategic move offering a complete solution to clients.
“Our continued expansion and growth can largely be attributed to our focus on developing unique and entertaining attractions,” says Paul Collimore, Commercial Director at SPREE Interactive. “Listening to our clients and delivering solutions which match their needs is key. After a challenging period for our industry, it’s fantastic to see such a bounce back with client sites experiencing record visitor numbers. The increased adoption of interactive immersive VR experiences seems set to continue for the foreseeable future.”
Accompanying increased sales in historic SPREE products, quarter one of this year saw the company launch a new VR Bumper Car title “Cyberblaster,” leading to several global sales agreements including multisite agreements across Saudi Arabia and the expanding GCC region.
