The fully immersive experience uses 3D sound and complete darkness to take your imagination to its limits and all the way back again. The Séance team will control every aspect of the spine-tingling experience, though they recognise each person’s imagination will take them to different places. Are you spooked yet? Book your seat here, but not if your claustrophobic (that would NOT be a good time).
