An amazing-looking digital adventure experience is opening in Manchester – taking players through a room of futuristic puzzles and challenges.
Electric Playbox, which has already attracted big crowds in London, has cut the red ribbon to its new branch at the Arndale Centre – promising to offer a “first of its kind experience” for players.
An immersive group entertainment platform, Electric Playbox features four Adventures lasting 60 minutes each – using projection mapping, touch screens and motion tracking technology to deliver a team adventure in alternative reality.
Adventures include time-travelling to 1984 to outwit an alien race taking over the globe, and taking a trip to the future to rescue a royal family in need.
Up to six players can leap inside each Playbox; strapping on motion sensor visors and working together to complete a series of challenges.
The unique concept is the brainchild of Tough Mudder founder Will Dean, who has swapped mud for motion-sensors.
The founder said: “Our first venue has been a massive hit with Londoners, and Manchester was always going to be the next place to launch the Electric Playbox concept.
“The city has a thriving entertainment scene and we’re so excited to welcome families, couples, and friends to tackle our Adventures.”
Priced at a special reopening offer of only £19 for adults and £9 for children, bookings are now open and can be made online.
The Electronic Playbox group is following the latest COVID-19 health regulations and guidelines, all of which can be found here.
This will include staggered start times, online check-in before arrival, and social distancing at the venue.
