Want to experience ‘Arkham Asylum’ for yourself? Well, here’s your chance! An immersive and unique event is coming to London in 2022 and it sounds fantastic.
Brought to you by Department Studios Inc, Myriad Entertainment and Warner Bros. Themed Entertainment, ‘Arkham Asylum’ is a live and immersive experience set to open its doors in Autumn 2022 in London. It is set to become one of London’s major entertainment destinations, and is (of course) inspired by DC’s very own Batman.
Here is the official write up on the theme and story of ‘Arkham Asylum’:
Batman is missing and Gotham City is in tatters. Crime is running rampant in the streets and civil unrest is festering around every corner. Step forward ambitious psychiatrist Jeremiah Arkham who wants to restore order through his pioneering treatments. The citizens of Gotham City are being summoned by law to the Arkham Asylum for psychological examination.
Set in a vast multi-sensory recreation of the eponymous psychiatric hospital from DC lore – Arkham Asylum will be an epic alternate reality, combining futuristic technology and interactive theatrics with a wholly original story to create a chilling, once-in-a-lifetime, live immersive experience.
Interaction is rewarded, from heightened clues and tasks prior to arrival to unlocking new spaces, characters, and storylines within. The audience become the protagonists: first as citizens of Gotham City, then as patients on their own journey to escape the infamous Arkham Asylum and explore the world of Batman like never before alongside iconic DC characters including Scarecrow, Catwoman, Poison Ivy and many more.
Here’s a look at the official teaser trailer:
The experience is based on original story telling written by the team at Myriad Entertainment – which has produced west end shows, television and immersive shows – and includes Simon Evans creator of Staged – the award winning Covid comedy starring David Tennant and Michael Sheen.
