Get strapped in for a whirlwind tour of the latest and greatest in location-based entertainment! From the adrenaline-pumping Andretti Karting and Games in Arizona, to the enigmatic Museum of Intrigue in New York, we’re bringing you firsthand experiences of immersive attractions that are transforming leisure time. Ever wondered what cutting-edge VR tech feels like when zapping foes in laser tag, or how storytelling can become an interactive affair? We’ve got you covered, along with a candid look at London’s Fair Game, where carnival nostalgia meets modern innovation – albeit with a few kinks to iron out in the scoring department.

Buckle up for a reality check as we recount our journey through the Wonderland Madhouse, where expectations met reality with a thud. Despite the allure of an Alice in Wonderland themed escapade, we peel back the curtain to show you why all that glitters might not be gold, especially when it comes to immersive entertainment. Plus, we’re stirring the pot on marketing mayhem, as we dissect a Willy Wonka themed event that left a bittersweet taste. Hold onto your hats – and your candy – as we tease the next big thing in gaming walls, promising more laughter, insights, and perhaps a golden ticket to the next big thing in location-based thrills.
