Two Bit Circus Micro-Amusement Park™ Debuts Virtual Reality Game PING! and Hosts PING! Tournament In Downtown Los Angeles

New Take on an Old Favorite with Modal’s Latest VR Game at Two Bit
Circus

LOS ANGELES–(BUSINESS WIRE)–One heavy dose of nostalgia meets cutting-edge virtual reality immersion
at Two Bit Circus Micro-Amusement Park with the newest park addition of
PING!

PING! is a virtual reality game where players are inserted into the 3D
world of Pong, except instead of joysticks, the players are the paddles.
Beam yourself into this classic game to compete against friends and
family. Recommended for ages 9 to 99.

Sharing its DNA with the groundbreaking 1972 Atari classic Pong, PING!
at Two Bit Circus will bring teams and spectators together to host a
winner-takes-all tournament on Tuesday, November 13, with a chance to
play a Two Bit Circus co-founder, Brent Bushnell or Eric Gradman, as a
grand prize.

PING! is the newest addition to the 38,000 square-foot rotating
entertainment platform and another example of the park’s ability to grow
and evolve, giving returning guests a fresh and dynamic experience every
time.

For the tournament, 16 players will don HTC Vive Focus VR headsets and
compete in a one-on-one sudden death style bracket to find out who is
the master of the paddles. Each individual will be their own “team” and
will be competing in a single elimination round bracket. The contestants
must use their bodies as tools to volley a familiarly oversized and
volatile white pixel back and forth at ever quickening speeds.
Successful players must be one part goalkeeper and one part
pixel-striker to best their opponent.
