The best multiplayer VR games for kids of all ages

If your child loves multiplayer VR games, make room in your living room, parents! Because I have 7 multiplayer games to keep them moving and collaborating – or from our perspective, randomly grabbing the coin while talking to each other.

VR games have come a long way since their launch, and I’m really impressed with what’s on the market right now. These multiplayer VR games for kids are a great way to keep everyone in the family active and enjoying social times even when we’re at home. So they’re perfect for quarantines (hopefully not much longer!), school holidays, weekends and late nights.

Here’s where to start if you’re buying a multiplayer kids VR game with a VR bundle that can’t wait to get more use out of it.

The ping pong simulation game, Eleven Table Tennis, lets kids play against their friends or alone against the realistic AI. Players can choose three different settings and also play mini-games to improve their skills. It’s a little more stripped down than some of the other games, with no fun characters or magical abilities, and more of a simple sports game – but grab the ping pong handle to make it more realistic.

In this silly game, players only use their arms to climb and jump through a pixelated jungle. With Gorilla Tag, you can play regular tag with up to three friends or opt for infection mode, where you all run away from…infected gorillas. Fun stuff. It’s free with in-app purchases. Just make sure to gorilla-proof your room before you start, as this game tends to get wild. (Ha.)

Created by a former chef, this game sees players working together to cook meals for their hungry customers. If you liked Overcooked, it has a similar frenetic energy, which screams at itself. The menu items they ask for get progressively more complicated as the game progresses in this addictive collaboration game.

The Wii Golf was the big thing when I was a teenager, but I’m glad to see it’s been upgraded for the era of VR gaming. Walkabout Mini Golf VR is packed with incredible fantasy putt-putt courses, and players love that the physics are super realistic. You can even use your own environment – not just the course itself – for trick shots. And there are fun upgrades for different holes, and even a harder night mode.

It’s the VR version of the popular phone game Spaceteam that asks crew members to give each other instructions to keep their spaceship afloat. If you like chaotic screaming games like Overcooked, this one is good to try.

This deliciously spooky game is for just two players – yes, Carly and the Reaperman. Carly is trying to escape the Underworld and the Reaperman helps her by removing obstacles from her path and teaming up with her to solve puzzles. The world itself isn’t as big as in some of the other games, but your kid likes problem solving and playing with one person rather than a whole team, this might be a good option.

A spinoff of Lone Echo, this multiplayer VR game for kids is the only one here rated for teens and up, but it’s so popular I had to include it. Echo VR gives players the feeling of competing in zero gravity. Wow! Players take on a robot body called a Chassis which they will try to wear while trying to get their Space Disc through the goal on the virtual field – while battling the other team. Players say this game gets pretty physical, so definitely clear some serious space. And move everything that is breakable!
