Department Studios, Myriad Entertainment, and Warner Bros Themed Entertainment, in association with DC, have announced Arkham Asylum, a live immersive experience, inspired by iconic superhero Batman.
Set in a vast multi-sensory recreation of the eponymous psychiatric hospital from DC lore – Arkham Asylum aims to be “an epic alternate reality, combining futuristic technology and interactive theatrics with a wholly original story to create a chilling, once-in-a-lifetime, live immersive experience”.
Interaction will be rewarded, from heightened clues and tasks prior to arrival to unlocking new spaces, characters, and storylines within. The audience will become the protagonists: first as citizens of Gotham City, then as patients on their own journey to escape the infamous Arkham Asylum and explore the world of Batman alongside iconic DC characters including Scarecrow, Catwoman, Poison Ivy and more.
Arkham Asylum will open in September 2022 in London, England.
