The world’s first Monopoly Lifesized is now welcoming players to the board in central London and I recently had a chance to go and play!
It’s a live interactive version of the classic family board game, where players must complete tasks and games in order to win properties (like the Crystal Maze) and money.
For 80 minutes, players of all ages can feel the thrill of trying to stage a heist in Mayfair, compete against a clock to build some of London’s iconic buildings, solve a baffling murder mystery or step into the world of codebreakers. It is an unmissable and totally unique experience.
Featuring four different Monopoly boards complete with themed challenge rooms, community chest games, a lifesized jail and your favourite pieces (a dog, a battleship, a car etc) in human form who will help guide you through the game.
Plus they have a themed restaurant and bar, The Top Hat, with delicious food, bespoke cocktails.
Priced from £59.00 for adults and £27.50 for children (who have their own junior board to play), this isn’t a cheap night out but if you are a fan of immersive theatre or a lifelong fan of the board game, then this is one experience you don’t want to miss out on.
