I recently learned about an interactive escape experience that is coming to Sydney (and to Melbourne and Adelaide) . The outfit is AR Escapes. The Sydney experience runs on 11 November - it's a one day event.
The theme of the experience is Jack the Ripper. Here's the summary from their website:
The whole experience goes for between 1.5 hours and 2 hours. One hour into the game, they let the killer loose and from that point on, if the killer gets within 10 meters of you, you're out. I understand that they use your mobile phone to track your location during the experience. The idea of the game is to work through crime scenes and presumably figure out who the Ripper is before he (or she) finds you.
I bought my tickets on the day that they were released (I was a tad excited). It sounds awesome to me, so my fingers are crossed that the experience will live up to my pretty high expectations.
They currently have a 50% discount on tickets for early bird purchases. I'm not sure when the early bird discount runs out, but at $50 per person (rather than $100), you should get in quick.
You can check out their website here.
I'll be there in the final session of the day in Sydney, so I might see you there!
