About SENSAS London
Wandering down the row of arches in Vauxhall, I don’t think I was the only member of our team who didn’t really know what to expect when it came to SENSAS. We’d read about the concept, we’d watched the trailer which looked equal measures exciting and scary, but I don’t believe any of us expected the treat that we had in store.
Behind the sliding doors, beyond the graffiti walls, there are two hours of fun and exciting challenges to be explored, with the help of your SENSAS master, Dan.
Each of the zones in SENSAS are linked to the senses of the human body:
The first zone we went into very much tested our taste – I don’t want to give too much away in this zone as I really enjoyed the surprise and suspense of it all. All I’ll say is that you give your dietary restrictions ahead of time! We had to work together as a team to collect information in order to open three safes on the wall outside the tasting room.
The second zone was very similar to the first, only this time testing our touch – screams of both joy and fear were certainly more common in this zone. Again, working as two halves of the team, we collected the information and opened the safes outside the room.
The third zone was hearing, which was a novel one – bringing a more traditional game into the mix, but giving it a team based twist. The highlight of this one was one of my teammates rolling around on the ground pretending to be a seal – again, I don’t want to give too much away.
The fourth zone was probably my least favourite personally, as it was the smell zone. Now my sense of smell has always been a weakness, but thankfully the team rallied together to carry me through this one.
The final zone certainly felt like it was the team’s favourite – sight. Now this one I’m not afraid to spoil a little as I’ve seen that there are already a lot of social media posts about this one! We absolutely loved diving around in a ball pit, obviously it’s a fun activity in and of itself, but it also unlocks that childhood glee that we always wish to recapture. Also you can’t go wrong with a laser maze!
SENSAS – The Verdict
When reviewing an experience I feel like this is always the most important question. Was it fun? Did we have a good time? Would I recommend it?
The answer to all of these questions with SENSAS is a resounding YES.
We turned up at an arch in Vauxhall with very little clue what to expect, and we came out two hours later having done things we’d never done before. It was unique, special and we had a lot of laughs.
I would definitely recommend it as something that the whole family would enjoy – an all in all fantastic experience.
