London’s IRL Arkham Asylum is Opening, and You Can Be an Inmate
Arkham Asylum is bringing an immersive Arkham Asylum experience to the Big Smoke. It is putting out all the stops to offer opportunities to interact with the heroes and villains of Gotham City.
Arkham Asylum was created by a collaboration between Department Studios and Warner Brothers Themed Entertainment. It isn’t trying to erase the horrible legacy of the fictional criminal mental hospital. Myriad Entertainment has members who have been recognized for their contributions to “critically lauded West End productions, award winning television and some of the most ambitious narrative immersive programs in the past decade.”
This is not something for the faint-hearted. Arkham Asylum requires that you are at least 18 years old to register. This trailer shows what fans can expect, including callous staff and restraints on patients being wheeled around in cramped wheelchairs and tested on ricketygurneys.
Tickets will go on sale in 2 weeks. However, you can sign-up to be first in line and receive marketing materials regarding Arkham Asylum before it arrives. Although it is not yet clear what participants will gain from their experience, Department Studios is proud that it uses its “interactive theatre and cutting-edge technology to create unique, multiplatform alternate reality experiences that place fans as the protagonists of their own story.”
HBO recently called Zack Snyder’s Justice League an ” global phenomenon”, which brought together DC Comics fans in a way that was unlike any other. Many people are calling for the revival of the “Snyderverse”, and Warner Bros is certainly open to the idea.
