Step into the pages of history books and test your wits in an exhilarating game of truth and lies at the immersive Gunpowder Plot Experience. Found in the shadowy depths of the Tower Hill Vaults, this explosive adventure takes you back to 1605 where you will become part of the story. Along the way you’ll meet mysterious strangers, plot epic escapes and even partake in a spot of smuggling; with all of these events being brought to life through an immersive combination of virtual reality, talented character actors and authentic sets.
What can you expect at the Gunpowder Plot Experience?
Been completely hooked on BBC’s The Traitors lately? Haven’t we all. This experience could be just the thing for those of you who love a bit of cloak and dagger. Over the course of around 1 hour and 40 minutes you will find yourself plunged into a world of deceit which will have you wondering who are the traitors and who can you trust. As the story unfolds you’ll go from deviously spying for the crown, to sympathising with the oppressed rebels, to fleeing from the Tower Of London in a heart-pounding escape. Every step of the way you will be guided by talented actors who will take you on a journey from the dank and gloomy dungeons to the sanctuary of a safe house.
There are three virtual reality scenes that, once you slip on the headset, will shut out the world and plunge you into the past. Then, each time you return to reality, you’ll be fully immersed with fascinating, million-pound sets that ensure an authentic experience. Every feature has been carefully curated and thought out to make sure history is accurately recreated. Then, once fate has dealt its hand and the story comes to an end, you can find sanctum at their themed bar and sink a few ales (or cocktails if you fancy).
Not one to make a grab for a participation medal? Not to worry, this isn’t an escape room with convoluted puzzles you need to solve, you can get involved as much as you fancy – either way, you’ll witness history coming to life. You’ll even encounter a celeb on your journey through time, with Harry Potter’s own Tom Felton as part of the digital cast, playing the pivotal role of Guy Fawkes. This Gunpowder Plot Experience has already received a wealth of great reviews and continues to impress, so why not see what all the fuss is about and grab your tickets today!
