Otherworld Is Finally Open, And The Wait Was Totally Worth It

Well, friends, the day has finally come and gone. Otherworld has officially opened their doors and let me tell you, it’s one heck of an experience.

The 30,000 square foot installation is a magical place. Once you get checked in, you are free to explore the many rooms, hallways, nooks, and crannies throughout Otherworld. From broken down labs to seemingly endless rooms, you’ll walk (and sometimes crawl) through what seems to be pure imagination.

Moving through the entire venue is supposed to take about an hour, but during our visit, we certainly took our time. Mostly because we were in awe of the level of detail, but also because there were times when we genuinely had to push ourselves to figure out what exactly the interactive portions of Otherworld meant. I’m pretty sure we were overthinking it, but we had a lot of fun nonetheless.

I don’t want to spoil everything for you, because it truly is a one-of-a-kind experience, so I’ll just mention the highlights.

The tree at the center of Otherworld is by far one of the most eye-catching parts of the whole place. It’s also a good place to venture out and discover new rooms, as it feels like almost all paths through Otherworld lead there.

We also fell in love with what we affectionately called the “super cool light tube room”. That’s not the official name by any means, but trust me, once you see it, you’ll understand.

For the month of June, Otherworld will be open every weekend, Friday-Sunday. Tickets are $22 for adults, $20 for seniors and military, $18 for kids 3-12 and free for children under 3! For more information about Otherworld, you can visit their website here.
