THE GREAT GATSBY IMMERSIVE EXPERIENCE LONDON

Hi there, old sport, are you up for a night of lovely food, dressing up, dancing and theatre? Then you’ll love Immersive Gatsby!

Immersive Gatsby is a theatrical immersive experience based on Scott’s Fitzgerald novel ‘The Great Gatsby’. If you haven’t seen the movie or read the book, I encourage you to do so before visiting. It will be more fun to be able to relate the characters to what you know. If I have to be honest, I did not know what to expect of this evening but as an immersive experience lover I knew I had to live it.

Secret Cinema

The mother of immersive experiences in London, Secret Cinema was founded in 2007 and specialises in immersive theatrical experiences based on film and television, combining film screenings with interactive performances in purpose-built bespoke sets. In simpler terms, imagine being able to step into your favourite film, to interact with the characters, dressed as one of them and hence becoming part of the story yourself. That’s Secret Cinema! It has been held on movies like Back to the Future, Star Wars, Casino Royale and currently, on Stranger Things. Book it here.

Otherworld

Otherworld is a virtual reality immersive experience where you step into a beautiful parallel world, an island. In this world you can choose any from sixteen very fun VR experiences. And it’s 4D which means you’ll be able to feel the heat from the sun was you emerge from a cave, or the wind as you gush down a tunnel. Once you are done adventuring, you can enjoy one of their exotic cocktails in a futuristic setting. Book it here.

The Grid is another creation from the Lollipop team described as “an immersive Black Mirror/Dystopia inspired escape experience”. Having enjoyed ABQ and The Bletchley I knew I was up for a very fun evening.  

We arrived at its location close to Southwark and were given our attire for the evening: futuristic silver jackets.

Our role was to play a member of The Grid; a secret society of individuals working to safeguard humanity’s future against machines. Our job was to infiltrate the NeoSight, the company responsible for the AI.

JOURNEY TO THE UNDERWORLD LONDON

JOURNEY TO THE UNDERWORLD LONDON

Journey to the Underworld was the first Funicular Productions immersive experience I went to. As an immersive experience lover, I have this itch to attend all of them and Journey to the Underworld had great reviews. Also, I had peeked the menu in their website and it looked amazing. And they are able to cater for vegans!

I arrived to Pedley Street Station in Hackney where the experience was to take place and was greeted by a rather zombie-like man in the ticket office who gave us the ticket so that we could shortly board the train. His assistant monsters took our coats and bags.
