THE MAKING OF THE WAR OF THE WORLDS: THE IMMERSIVE EXPERIENCE

EPISODE 2: ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY

It’s time for our second instalment of ‘The Making Of’ where you can hear from our CTO, Carl Guyenette, see sneak peeks of the set designs, watch a time-lapse of the build and get a glimpse of volumetric filming, as The Old Metal Exchange begins its transformation into Victorian England.

<<<< WATCH OTHER EPISODES >>>>

Jeff Wayne’s The War of The Worlds: The Immersive Experience combines Jeff’s Musical Version, immersive theatre, virtual reality, augmented reality, holograms and other cutting-edge technology; giving audiences the chance to live through the Martian invasion of 1898.

Visitors will be thrust into the heart of the story from the moment they step inside the vast 22,000-square foot multi-level site in Central London, which is being transformed for this unique Martian adventure.

Your experience will last for 110 minutes which includes a 20 minute intermission in the Red Weed Bar. Complete your experience by enjoying a drink and food in our steampunk themed bar at the end of your journey.

You will be in a group with up to 12 people. Each group has a dedicated time slot and you must arrive 15 minutes before your start time. We are sad to say that we will not be able to accommodate you if you do not arrive on time.

The experience is suitable for anyone aged 12 and over. It is not suitable for sufferers of motion sickness, dizziness, psychological or neurological disorders. Please see our full terms of entry for more information.

A guest with a disability is entitled to a free carer ticket. To apply please contact us by emailing tickets@dotdot.london. The experience is not fully wheelchair accessible but we will be arranging regular wheelchair accessible events. Please email tickets@dotdot.london for further information.

The experience takes place at;
The Old Metal Exchange,
52-56 Leadenhall Street,
London,

The closest tube station to the experience is Aldgate with the closest overground station being London Fenchurch Street.

This immersive experience includes multiple effects which may include total darkness, uneven surfaces, air blasts, strobe lighting, latex, narrow tunnels, sudden loud noises, live actors, fog, scent, a slide and tight spaces, which require you to bend down while walking or crawling.

When combined these effects immerse guests in the experience which is intended to be impactful.
