The newest of such activities sees the Staten Island Yankees, in conjunction with YokeyPokey, offering fans a full virtual reality experience for all 38 of their home games, with the purchase of suite tickets. The virtual reality experience by YokeyPokey allows fans to fight off zombies, become the next race car champion, fly planes, travel the world or step into the world of their favorite piece of art, all providing amazing adventures through a full 360-degree virtual reality gaming experience.
This a revolutionary attraction, especially for a minor league baseball club. Frank Camuso, having children of his own, knows first-hand the value of having a quality distraction for children at the ballpark. While baseball has its moments, 9-innings can get a bit boring if you’re not a super fan or if you have the attention span of a young child. Frank Camuso, is excited to test the virtual reality experience out for himself at an upcoming game soon. Despite the fanfare surrounding the addition of virtual reality to the ballpark, the experience isn’t cheap, at least not by minor league baseball standards. While some tickets to an average game for Frank Camuso, who usually gets good seats, cost anywhere from $10-50, the YokeyPokey virtual reality experience is a $500 add-on to the cost of a luxury suite at the Staten Island Yankees’ Richmond County Bank Ballpark. The suites themselves run about $1000, however they do come pretty well stocked for the price. For $1000 fans like Frank Camuso and his family will get 20-tickets, and a $400 food and beverage ticket.
So for the price of around $1500, about 20 friends and family members of all ages can enjoy a day of baseball, with food, drink, and virtual reality fun all in a luxurious suite at one of the best minor league ballparks in the country.
