Let’s Begin with The Popcorn Room!

As we walked up the stairs I could smell the familiar sweet scent that I absolutely love…POPCORN! For anyone that knows me, knows my favourite snack is indeed popcorn and I will always have a mouthful of it whenever I get a chance.

When we entered the first room, we were overwhelmed with the glorious smell of fresh popcorn. The room was decorated with the colours of famous popcorn buckets: red and white stripes and a projection screen covered the walls, like a giant popcorn machine with the sounds and sights of popcornpopping. There were red seats on the floor all around, so you can sit and watch the cinematic popping and right in the middle of the room was heaven. A giant popcorn box filled to the brim with packets of sweet and salty popcorn.

Of course, I picked up a bag…maybe two bags of popcorn. A tasty snack at a fabulous interactive museum? Yes, please.

Into Infinity and Beyond Room

This had to be my favourite room… A spectacle of dangling, colourful lights with infinite mirror illusions. It felt like you were surrounded by literal happiness.

I’m drawn to anything with flashing lights, dazzling illuminations and bright pops of colour and with the added component of huge mirrors reflecting all of this joy… boy, did this room deliver.

As we entered, we were taken aback by the sheer light and positive energy this room radiated. You literally felt like you had walked into a rainbow. With strings of balls of lights dangling from the infinite ceiling-to-floor mirrors, we were transfixed. They shimmered with all the colours in the rainbow, dancing as they changed from multicoloured to shiny red and ocean blue. They moved in synchronisation as they danced.

It was truly a disconnect from reality and an escape from everyday life as you got lost in the forest of lights. With light-hearted and positive inducing sound effects filling your ears, you couldn’t help but smile and giggle with glee!

Did I feel like a child lost in paradise? Of course, no shame here.

The Ground Is Your Enemy Room

A little bit of a maze, a little bit of a retro dance mat with flashing blue and pink lights, invoking a sense of a childhood game. Coupled with the feeling of being sucked into an 80s video game! Follow the path of lit-up squares to find your way out!

Don’t forget to dance to the groove as you jump around. Did I forget to mention there are huge mirrors from the floor to the ceiling? Another infinite room that will have you enjoying a classic game while you make amazing memories with family and friends.

Lucid Dreaming

An ASMR dream. With sounds that crinkle deep into your mind, mad illusions that evoke lights and a fuzziness feeling and an infinite dreamscape that truly allows your imagination to run wild and fly free. You’ll feel relaxed, intrigued, amused and satisfied in the body, mind and soul.

When you’ll enter you’ll find cutting-edge technology and a huge projection screen showing a series of colourful, artsy and bold simulations. Colours shimmering and weaving as if they were in liquid form, coloured balls bursting and hitting every corner of the screen, a swirling vortex and explosions of colour. Just watching this for a few seconds will have the back of your brain tingling and goosebumps erupting on your arms.

It’s a must-see room.

Finger Puppet Room

Do you have the fondest childhood memories of creating finger puppets with your torch at night? Did you try and make dogs, and foxes or push the boat and make an eagle? Well, travel back in time and channel that childlike enjoyable experience.

Ballpit Room

Are you ready to act like kids again and jump into a ball pit filled with happy memories?! Throw your shoes off and get stuck into a ball pit where you can really feel like a happy bunny again. Swim through the balls, playfully throw them at your friends and remember the days of wacky warehouse.

Did my friends bury me in the balls? Of course, they did. Did I laugh the entire time? 100%.

Say What You Feel Room

A room that had all 4 of its walls blank, multiple cups full of coloured felt tips and whatever positive message you want to leave on the walls. There is also an idea of writing what you’re grateful for…which could be just about anything. Write it on a slip of paper and slip it into a box!

When we walked in, we were greeted with thousands of messages scattered and illustrated all over the walls, even on the ceilings! Gently illuminated. by the pink neon sign, the room was quaint and held a positive vibe to it. We all grabbed a felt tip and scribbled our little message, what we were grateful for and then sat down for a little while and read what everyone else wrote.

Fireflies Room

Fancy a bit of peace and quiet? You’re in luck, Dopamine Land has a giant room that is shrouded in darkness, except for little lanterns delicately hung way above you.

All along the floor were rugs and beanbags where you could relax and lie down on.

As we lay down on the cushioned seating, I felt my body relax and my eyes adjust to the lanterns above. Flickering so effortlessly in a peaceful environment. It was a moment of reflection and a wind-down from the amazing experience.

But it wasn’t over yet…

Keep Calm and Carry On Room
