Humanity as we know it has gone! – Omescape saving Huxley

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to travel forward in time when machines have taken over the world and humanity as we knew it was gone?  Well with Omescape latest virtual reality (VR) game Huxley you can do just that.

With VR becoming more and more popular these days me and some other enthusiastic escape room players from Love Pop Ups London we were super keen in stepping into the year 3007 AD on a complimentary basis to give our feedback.

Are you sceptical about VR escape rooms because you have done static VR games before and never thought much about the quality of realism? Well don’t be as even though I and some others have done static VR games before this walk around one really will surprise you with it’s mind blowing graphics.

With this VR experience you will be experiencing the latest new technology used by Omescape. No longer will you sit in a chair and navigate through virtual space with some hand motions or a controller that feels like you are just playing on your computer console. This one you can manoeuvre and walk around and you’ll even feel as wind is blowing against you really making you feel you are in the situation. Continue reading

Well at Madame Tussauds silent disco event you can do just that as they are a wax work museum.  They are situated in Baker Street and have life-size wax replicas of celebrities and historic icons over many themed galleries.

There are many reasons for this enduring success, but at the heart of it all is good, old-fashioned curiosity. Continue reading

I became a zombie – London Tombs

I have always dreamt of being a zombie so when the chance to become a zombie for a day at the award winning top horror attraction in the World at The London Bridge Experience & London Tombs came up I just leapt at the opportunity.

Whilst growing up I watched many horror movies with my father from a very young age and so I am a massive fan of horror movies.  Some of my favourite films are 28 Days Later, Nightmare on Elm Street and Child’s Play.

Bang!, Wallop! Pow!, Kaboom! The Art of the Brick: DC Legends is the most eye striking art exhibition I have ever gone to and it took me back to my childhood years.   Even before upon entering this exhibition the buildings outer walls are all covered with comic story strips and DC Legend characters.

Joker at the cinema

I walked through the entrance and sitting right in front of my eyes is The Joker sitting in a chair with 80’s 3D glasses on and eating popcorn (yellow lego bricks) with a spare chair next to him and a spare pair of glasses well what can I say but I am a kid and I just had to sit next to him, as “I’m Joanne, fun and silly at the same time”.

Behind the Joker was some benches and a small cinema screen which you could sit down and watch some movie shorts that star lego characters. Continue reading
