If you are in or near the Boston, MA area and you’re looking for something a little different when it comes to the out-of-home experience, then a company called 5W!TS is offering just that in the form of a complete interactive adventure called TOMB. In TOMB groups of players enter inside with a guide and once there they have to solve puzzles together using their “mind and body to solve physical and mental challenges” where you unwrap the mystery of the Pharoh’s Tomb. One interesting aspect of this is that the group can lose where they “die” (not literally of course – that would be shut down in a jiffy!) and get a different ending than if they ‘live’ to the end. The expeditions take about 45 minutes are are suitable for most ages.
It’s not hard to endorse out-of-home entertainment experiences like these, from the sounds of this they provide a “mixed reality” environment where special effects blend in seamlessly with the game. Have any of you been to this already and if so, how would you rate the experience?
