‘Not for anyone who has a nervous disposition’ – great.

Guess what folks, you can now discover what it’s like to be in a plane crash in a new, completely terrifying high-tech simulator experience brought to you by designers, Darkfield.

Can’t say I’ll be jumping the queue to grab my ticket but if this sounds like something for you, the flagship FLIGHT container “explores the Many-Worlds Interpretation of quantum mechanics” by taking the audience “through two worlds, two realities and two possible outcomes to their journey”.

It’s certainly set to be theatrical.

The pop-up experience takes place in a 40ft converted shipping container and it has been transformed into an exact replica of a Boeing 707 aircraft.

Darkfield uses binaural sound to create a 3D stereo sound sensation, plus darkness and movement, to immerse the audience in fast-paced, constantly evolving narratives.

The promo video is bizarre and seems to incorporate both horror and fear by encapsulating users in complete darkness for 30-minutes.

The air hostess is a little freaky too.

“There are many worlds in which the plane lands safely”, the website adds.

“Neither Heaven nor Hell is assured. We are not responsible for your final destination”.

Thrill-seekers will undoubtedly delight.

Many of those who could not want to have the s*** scared out of them took to Twitter to express their reviews on FLIGHT.

One user claims he had an “existential crisis”:

Whilst another says she probably should have avoided it just hours before her actual flight:

As a ticket costs only £8 it’s probably worth its money for those of us who revel in the adrenaline rush associated with real-life simulations.

 

It informs part of the Nottingham Festival of Science and Curiosity and will be open to the public between February 15 – 23 at Lakeside Arts Centre in Nottingham.

It will then arrive in Kings Cross between February 28 – March 22.

It has already held three sell-out runs in Edinburgh and it seems pre-bookings for the Nottingham run are already selling-out.

Whatever floats your boat, I guess.
