Picture it; you’re wandering through Surrey Quays on a warm summer’s day when the burbling rush of cascading water, excited chatter of crowds and clinking of glasses pierces the everyday hum of the city. You follow the sounds to find Phantom Peak, a fully-realised town that has laid its buzzing, steampunk roots down in South East London. Answer the call of your curiosity and enter the gates to fill your day with exploratory boat rides, strolls along the waterway, delicious drinks on Main Street and plenty of exciting adventures. There is more than meets the eye at Phantom Peak. Don’t miss the irresistible chance to channel your inner detective by delving into intriguing enigmas and unearthing the sensational secrets of this mysterious town.
The power is entirely in your hands at Phantom Peak. Whether you’re after a bit of escapism after a gruelling day at the office, have been hunting for somewhere unique to have drinks with friends, fancy indulging in some experiential dining or are looking to get your teeth into a gripping mystery (blame the Netflix true-crime binge), you’ll be spoilt for choice.
You can carve your own path when exploring this fascinating new world. The striking scenery that has sprouted up around you is not a pretty mirage, but actually, a large scale theme park-style town that is absolutely brimming with delicious secrets and hidden clues. Journey into the depths of the mountain on an adventurous boat ride, meet the townspeople and learn their stories, thumb through the local paper…who knows what you might uncover. At this ‘Venice of the West’, you’ll feel like you have fallen into the pages of fiction and you’re the intrepid protagonist.
You might want to keep it chilled and duck into a bar found along the canal known as The Waterway. Where, in moments, you can find yourself sipping a refreshing concoction while soaking up the sight of the vibrant town in all its steampunk-meets-Victoriana glory. Alternatively, take your tipple to go with a stroll around the lake, join in one of the many carnival games or cool off in the light spray of the waterfall – that’s right, a gushing waterfall will be found in the concrete maze of London. Of course, you’ll need something to fuel your exploration, and thankfully there’ll be no shortage of delicious food available around the town to tuck into. There’ll be no rumbling stomachs at Phantom Peak, that’s for sure.
All this is possible thanks to the marvellous minds of the team behind Time Run and Sherlock: The Game Is Now. They have created a true immersion into an alternate reality with an ever-evolving 30,000-sq ft of walkways, rivers, bars, shops and eateries to explore, not to mention a host of live actors and a living ecosystem which play a crucial role in injecting authentic life into this otherworldly experience. You haven’t experienced anything like this before, so make sure you grab your tickets now to be first through the doors of Phantom Peak.
