Jeff Wayne’s The War of The Worlds: The Immersive Experience reviews
The experience was unique, being interactive, we all felt part of the action rather than passively watching. The story came to life, the VR experiences being realistic and enjoyable, bring the story to life. The virtual hot air balloon ride and the boat ride were particularly good. If you adore the music I felt that the quality of that could be better, and was slightly compromised by the layered reality aspect. It could be improved by continuing through some of the quieter scenes in the background, That could be just my feeling, but I would have preferred a bit more music in places.
Brought this as a Christmas present for dad- off we went on a father and son day to London this was a great experience and very much worth adding to our endless bucket list in life. All the actors were great! Front of house team - main bar could be a little bit more upbeat. The welcome hosts was great guy and full of energy. I guess the big question you need to ask yourself is …. Will you survive? Only one way to find out get booking!!
