Otherworld, a new immersive art installation and experience, is set to open in Columbus, Ohio.
The attraction features large-scale interactive art, mixed reality playgrounds, puzzles, and secret passageways.
It describes itself as an art and storytelling experience where visitors are encouraged to freely explore and interact with a surreal world of science fiction and fantasy.
Otherworld is founded by Ohio artist Jordan Renda, who has previously created and worked on haunted houses and escape rooms.
“It’s a giant, explorable, interactive art installation,” said Renda. “It’s tied together with an underlying story that you can sort of piece together as you go.”
The idea behind the new artainment experience is to immerse the viewer in the environment, using interactive tech, props, sets, and an engaging narrative.
Otherworld features include holograms, holodecks, 52 projectors, motion tracking cameras and more than 2km of LEDs.
