Virtual Reality Arcade to Open in Franklin This Weekend

Digital Worlds VR

On November 10th, the first Room-Scale Virtual Reality arcade in Williamson County will open in Franklin.

The arcade is called Digital Worlds VR and is located at 1945 Mallory Lane in the former Lenny’s Sub Shop location. The grand opening will offer 15-minute free trial play.

Digital Worlds VR arcade is the brainchild of Craig Carpenter, a life-long resident of Williamson County and graduate of Brentwood High School. An avid computer gamer, Carpenter became interested in virtual reality when it first became available.  After visiting multiple VR arcades around the country, he began planning how to open Williamson County’s first VR arcade.

Digital Worlds VR offers seven stations, each one with 100 square feet, that can be played simultaneously.  Players can choose from over 80 different games from many genres.  They can play a single-player game or can join a multiplayer game in co-op with or compete against their friends. Players and groups can rent one or more stations by the hour.  Parents can book multiple stations or the whole location for birthday parties or other occasions. Companies can book the facility for team-building events or office parties.  

Prices are $30 an hour. Corporate events and birthday parties begin at $250 for two hours. 

The grand opening of Digital Worlds VR arcade will be Saturday, November 10th beginning at noon. Stations can be reserved in advance by calling 615-538-7514 or online at  For more details, contact Craig Carpenter at
