Opened in 2019, Otherworld is a unique virtual reality arcade located within a converted railway arch in Haggerston. The multi-sensory immersive concept from The Dream Corporation was designed by leading London-based architectural firm Red Deer and hosts 14 immersion rooms with a parallel universe of possibility, featuring custom-built booths that are integrated with extra-sensory effects like heat, wind, rumble, and scent for the VR experience. Choose from 16 experiences – from climbing Mount Everest to fighting in a zombie apocalypse – and afterwards head to the craft beer and cocktail bar or pan-pacific inspired poké kitchen.
