About this event

Immersed in a retro arcade theatre, your team follows the interactive adventure of a hero caught up in their own thoughts.
Through live negotiations, you must decide on the thoughts, rather than actions, of the hero.

As you journey, you may discover that it really is the thought that counts.

Inspired by the pixel video games of the 1990's.

All tickets 2for1 - play solo or bring a friend for free.
