FLIGHT

Aviophobes, you better sit this one out.

Flight is a mesmerising, multidimensional and mind boggling experience. It catapults passengers into a mind game set 35,000 feet in the air.

Flight depicts everything that could possibly go wrong mid-flight.

The unsettling simulation is quite literally out of this world. It feels as though you’re dwindling in and out of consciousness as you meander across many galaxies.

From the creators of Sèance, Flight manages to wreak havoc among even the most self-composed. It’s a DARKFIELD production equipped with binaural sound.

Passengers enter a shipping container that is decked out like a real plane. There are seats and a set of headphones for each passenger. The cabin is claustrophobic and there’s not a lot of air. You’re asked to place your baggage in the overhead compartments and fasten your seatbelts. It’s realism is unnerving.

Boarding passes make the theatrical performance seem even more surreal. They even split you up from your friends to enhance the experience, if you want to hold someone’s hand mid-show, it’ll be a stranger’s.

In the pitch darkness, your senses are heightened, forcing your imagination to muster up hypotheticals in an attempt to regain your bearings.

The interactive experience also manipulates movement to trick your mind into believing you’re in motion.

The stomach churning 30-minute show seems to lose it’s audience in time.

It’s a harrowingly entertaining experience that has you gripping your armrests and dissecting your paranoia.

In a nutshell, it’s every anxious traveller’s worst nightmare. Those with a colossal fear of flying, may just want to check out of this one. It’s a one of a kind experience, aimed at daredevils.

Did you enjoy this show too ?

Very disappointing, tried overly hard with the narration and didn't capture a creepy flight experience. The "critic" reviews definitely overhype it. Headphone volume was also tinnitus-inducing, so be careful if you have sensitive hearing.
