Lost Origin, Hoxton Docks ★★★★★ | Nov 21 - Dec 4, 2021


So, there's this evil distributor of forbidden goods on the dark web and we've got to stop him! Lost Origin is a novel experience for a group of friends or a family outing. Working together, teams of six sneak into a warehouse and take on what appears to be the daunting challenge of catching the bad guy, but it turns out there may be darker forces at work – perhaps, a supernatural element to this quest. It's all a fun-filled change from the usual movie night or pub get-together. Lost Origin offers a great mixture of interactive role playing and an enhanced virtual reality experience known as mixed and augmented reality that is utterly captivating. The Magic Leap One device completely lived up to its billing and provided an unforgettable opportunity to savour the wonders of this new technology. For us, it was also nice that this aspect of the experience was allowed to delight and enthral, without being lessened by any attempts to shock or horrify participants with jumpscares. We were simply allowed to enjoy the wonder of discovering and seeing a whole new world. Kudos to the actors who guide teams through the role-play of the escapade. They do an excellent job of drawing in the participants and shaping the adventure. Their efforts were also beautifully complemented by the realistic, high quality sets. So for something different, a first-rate and unique entertainment experience, why not sign on to a mission at the Lost Origin.
