Have seen both the jack the ripper tour and Christmas Carol. Both were fantastic! Cant wait to see the other tours.
Everyone is very friendly. Well worth a visit.

Fabulous characters
Dec 2020 • Family
Have been to the Elf pantomime experience & I can honestly say it’s the most fun I’ve had visiting Santa....
Our elf ‘Buddy’ was amazing & brought the magic to life with his fantastic acting, the other actors were fantastic too & really interacted with us. Santa was fabulous & by far the best we’ve ever seen. My cheeks hurt for hours after from all the laughing & smiling I did. Thank you all for making a family of 3 extremely happy. We can’t wait to re visit for another experience.

Great day out

We did the Christmas Panto experience today and it was great - the kids loved it.
It was expensive but really felt it was worth it and the actors were very good (and patient!)

A Christmas Carol with Phileas Fogg
Dec 2020
My friends and I went to Phileas Foggs for the 'A Christmas Carol' experience. All of the actors involved were superb and were able to bring the story alive and keep it super entertaining. A few minor (quite funny) jump scares and sing alongs made you really feel involved with the story. The host was really good at taking us from Brighton and changing the atmosphere to 1800s London. We began with learning the background of the characters as well as the different relationships they share. Due to Covid, I noticed the use of the same actors to play different characters, but we could definitely differentiate these and continue to understand the story. On an occasion or two I could hear other actors talking from afar and didn't know whether that was part of the show. I later found out it was other groups going around taking part in the experience as well. Overall I had a great time and had such a laugh with my friends. I would definitely recommend to anyone trying to get into the Christmas spirit and loves immersive theatre. Looking forward to returning!

Phileas fun
Dec 2019
We went to Phileas Fogg for the vampire experience. The lady at reception was great and very entertaining, our host Andrew was fantastic and very funny. Some of the games were good some of the games are a bit unfair, things in very dark areas that are hard to see. For the vampire experience I was expecting vampires and some scares but there weren't any, other than dracula at the end but there wasn't a puzzle or anything to do at the end which was a bit disappointing. All in all we enjoyed the experience but it was a bit on the pricey side. More actors and spooks, less things in really high up places or dark areas that can't be seen, and a couple of pounds off the price of a ticket and it would have got a 5.

Didn’t want it to end
Oct 2020 • Family
Decided to give this a go during the half term with our two children (8 & 14). As it’s Halloween it was a ‘hunt the vampire’ type of experience led by ‘Van Helsing’. It was similar to The Crystal Maze and my god, what fun it is. From the very start to the very end. Greeting us at the front of house was an exceptionally nice man who explained the new COVID guidance and he led us to the start when it was like our very own theatre performance. Our Van Helsing was one of the best actors I’ve come across. He was so funny I was in fits of laughter. There were times when the kids were a little bit scared but it all added to the experience. The challenges were age appropriate (although some of them we didn’t complete in time). Cannot recommend this enough. We will definitely be going back for one of their other events.

Phileas Fogg meets Van Heisling Brilliant
Oct 2020 • Family
We had a fantastic time in crystal maze style attraction.
The staff are so enthusiastic and entertaining and the whole thing is very well done.
We also liked the Van Heisling link which was an exciting Halloween themed mix. We will be going again to try out some of the other things they do.

Fantastic experience and recommended
Sep 2020 • Couples
Had an amazing experience - short taxi drive away from Brighton centre but well worth it. A cross between Crystal Maze and theatrical production. Right from the outset with Queen Victoria greeting us at the door it was an immersive experience unlike any other. We would highly recommend for locals or visitors. Staff were professional and good humoured throughout - can’t wait to revisit sometime soon. Wendy’s Wizards - our team name

BRILLIANT, AMAZING, FANTASTIC!!
Sep 2020 • Friends
We visited Phileas Foggs last night, having done little research and not knowing what to expect - suffice to say, we were blown away. The whole experience was amazing, from the fantastic, immersive sets to the hilarious and friendly actors - we LOVED it! The sets were so professional, with every detail being considered from the smell to the sounds! Despite being seemingly the last group of the day, we did not feel rushed AT ALL through the experience and we were given countless opportunities to get more stars, even though we were pretty rubbish!

Upon arrival we were greeted by Dan who ensured our experience began the moment we walked through the door! He made us feel so comfortable and welcome and made sure we were excited and ready! Our Phileas Fogg (unfortunately we didn’t catch his name!) was amazing!! He was so patient with us despite our incompetence! Although we had a fantastic time completing the challenges, because they allowed us to live out our dreams of appearing on I’m a celeb and Race Across the World, the true fun of the night came from the atmosphere and rapport built by the actors who were up for laughing with us and not at us!! They were both so friendly and fantastic at what they do! We could feel their love and passion and it really positively impacted upon our experience! Huge thank you!!!!

We would recommend this to everyone!!
