Immersive theater pioneer Michael Counts created this unique experience, which marries escape-room entertainment with interactive theater. More…
Loosely inspired by 'The Divine Comedy,' 'PARADISO: Chapter 1' drops 10 audience members into a noir-styled, futuristic nightmare that they must navigate through. With a company of actors guiding the experience, 'PARADISO' features a narrative structure that makes audiences feel as if they have entered a world where the circumstances, characters, risks, and drama represent an immersive 'reality.' A multi-layered story unfolds complete with actors, 3D holographic projection technology, and special effects. From the team behind 'The Walking Dead Experience' and 'Play/Date.' Ages 13 and up only. Exact Midtown Manhattan location provided upon purchase of tickets.
See it if you like escape rooms with production values. The actors are totally in their roles. Hints are therefore ore interesting.

Also I was the most terrified of the group lol.
