Jeff Wayne created brand new sound design and music for this unique event, and has been integral to the production. Every element has been approved by him!
Climbing through windows, racing down a spiral staircase, hiding under a table, confessional booths, hot air balloon ride. You name it, we did it
Absolutely mind blowing. The most wow-factored experience I have encountered in a long time. I cannot recommend this enough. Truly Amazing
Absolutely loved it! It was my first experience of VR and I loved it… Boat trip, hot air balloon - all utterly spectacular.
The actors really made this an immersive experience. The tech used was really clever but the sets and the actors really sold the story and gave some genuinely creepy moments.
Astonishingly good. The whole experience is absolutely a must see whether you’re a fan of the album (like me) or not
