The Main Event

Prepare yourself for a spectacular immersive experience as you're transported into the story of The War Of The Worlds.

The War Of The Worlds experience will take you on a journey through 24 interactive scenes where live actors, state-of-art virtual reality and sensational multi-sensory effects bring the story to life - all with Jeff Wayne's multi-award double album of The War Of The Worlds as your soundtrack.

It'll be your greatest adventure yet as you come face to face with a 300ft Martian Fighting Machine, sneak into a deserted Victorian house, sail out to sea and witness the battle between the Martians and HMS Thunder Child and fly to Mars in a hot air balloon - Phew!

The experience will last approximately 1hr and 50 minutes which will include a 20 minute interval in the Red Weed Bar to let you get your breath back!

It's truly an amazing experience that puts you in the centre of the action!

  • Fabulous experience!

    Bought this as a treat for my husband as he loves the book. What a fabulous experience! It truly is an immersive experience, you really feel like you're in the story and the actors and special effects really make it amazing. The food and drink in the bar was great too.

  • Amazing experience

    Thank you very much for organising an amazing experience. I had been before, but really wanted to take the family, and so it was perfect timing to go and celebrate my wife's birthday. It was wonderful to be spoilt for the day, as we had our VIP experience with food, drinks and goodies to bring home. But the thing that really makes it memorable is the experience itself - the actors bringing us into their world, the detailed sets, the spectacular audio-visual effects, and of course Jeff Wayne's pumping score that underpins it all.
