You’ve played the Playstation game, you’ve seen the movies, maybe you’ve even dressed up as her for Halloween but now you can have a real go at being Lara Croft because an immersive, all-action Tomb Raider experience has come to London, setting up shop in Camden Market. Tomb Raider: The Live Experience has been created by the same team behind the Crystal Maze, so that should give you some idea of the level of production involved, and as well as a cast of live performers, they’ve even got Oscar-winning actor Alicia Vikander to provide the voice for Lara.
We won’t spoil the surprises for you by giving too many details of the experience away, but you’ll join Lara Croft on a mission to recover a powerful artefact that has fallen into the wrong hands. The globetrotting adventure will see you fending off enemies in Finland, solving puzzles on a sinking ship, zip-lining across the Costa Rican jungle, exploring an ancient tomb and collecting important relics in an effort to save the world.
It’s properly action-packed, so if you’ve always fancied yourself as a Tomb Raider, get those tickets – short shorts and holsters are optional.
