Escapism at its best! Loved all of it - actors were terrific; such variety, excitement and pace, it kept you entertained throughout… The overall experience was awesome - best day out we’ve had in a long time! Thank you!

We’ve just climbed through windows, slid down slides, taken a boat ride on the Thames and a balloon to Mars. Immersive does not begin to describe it. Complete with the music and artwork from the original Jeff Wayne extravaganza… Two unforgettable hours.

This is by far the best thing I have done in years. In actual fact, I can't even compare the level of this experience to anything else… My partner and I had a wonderful time and will look back on this experience as one of our best. My advice to anyone thinking about going is, GO! You will not regret it.

We travelled from Pitlochry to see this and were not disappointed. Worth visiting for the story telling, the actors were great and the special effects right from the start… Brilliant fun.

This experience is based upon the iconic 1978 double album, Jeff Wayne's Musical Version of The War of The Worlds, which has sold over 16 million records worldwide and gone platinum 13 times in the UK alone.

If you know Jeff's music, this experience is an “absolute must”. If you're new to it, it's a breathtaking way to discover one of the biggest selling albums of all time.

Click here to watch a personal welcome video from Jeff Wayne and find out why he rates this experience as one of the “most unique and enjoyable collaborations” of his career.

“An absolute must for any war of the worlds fan, the VR makes the experience amazing.”
