Based on Jules Verne’s classic adventure novel Around the World in 80 Days, Fire Hazard Games are staging a new, high energy urban adventure for adults in central London.
The Reform Club has opened the challenge to race Around the World in 80 Days, and players will be briefed by the club’s wealthy patrons, at a secret location in Covent Garden. There will be just 80 minutes to dash around central London to raise funds, make critical expedition purchases and decide whether to trust those who may help or hinder them along the way.
A theatrical adventure in both the virtual and real worlds, players will be guided through the game via a web app on their mobile phones, whilst also encountering a real cast of colourful characters as they make their way through London.
With a live leaderboard, cryptic clues, surprise challenges and multiple ways to win, the journey concludes with a race around the world at Underbelly Festival Southbank, guided by the cast and crew.
Fire Hazard’s recent real-life immersive games have included The Hunted Experience and John Le Carre’s The Circus. 80 Days: A Real-World Adventure is presented in association with Underbelly Festival Southbank.
When: 11th July – 29th September 2019
