Frequently Asked Questions

About The Experience

What Is Monopoly Lifesized?

Monopoly Lifesized is a phsyical, immersive edition of the world’s favourite board game.

Each 80-minute game is played on a 15m x 15m board, featuring 8 Properties, 2 Utility Companies, 2 Train Stations, Jail, Free Parking, Go, and Just Visiting. Each board can host between 8 and 24 people split into 4 teams, all playing against each other. Each team will have their own personal Monopoly Token –, Scottie Dog, Boot, Racing Car, etc. – leading them around the game, taking scores, and giving hints where required. Each property square will have a full-sized location specific room behind it that players enter to participate in a challenge to ‘acquire’ that particular property. The challenges will be a mixture of physical and mental puzzles and games that will test players’ skills and lateral thinking, and will be themed appropriately for the square, featuring either some historical or current day relationship with that part of London.

Our attraction is an interactive, immersive experience that uses a range of effects throughout. This includes, loud music / noises, flashing lights, timed-rounds, group participation and intimate spaces.

What are the differences between the boards?

There are 4 exciting Monopoly Lifesized boards to choose from when you book your tickets. The gameplay on each board works in exactly the same way (no extra rules to learn!) but the themes and challenges differ giving you the chance to come back and compete again.

Luxury Board

Know someone who always has to be the banker? Fairly sure they’re slipping themselves the odd M50 here and there? Maybe it’s time to bring them to the Luxury Board to see how Mr Monopoly does it. See behind the scenes of Mr Monopoly’s bank and get a taste of the finer things in life. You may not always be on the receiving end – perhaps you’re working in the Monopoly Starred Kitchen in Bow Street, or trying to talk your way into First Class at Waterloo – but sometimes you’ll be bidding for art from the auction house on Bond Street, or winning big at the casinos of Coventry Street. Gold trim, marble floors, and wood panelling, playing the Luxury Board will allow you to embrace the higher end of Monopoly life.

Classic Board

The Classic Board and its challenges serve as an homage to Monopoly and the history of the properties available to purchase. Perhaps you’ll get an opportunity to ring the bells on Whitechapel Road, solve a newspaper crossword on Fleet Street, or crack the enigma codes in Whitehall? With recognisable motifs such as property deed cards acting as the entrances to the challenge rooms and houses and hotels donning the walls, the classic board offers the closest experience to stepping onto the Monopoly board itself.

City Board

Take to the streets of modern day London and get a whistle stop tour of all that this wonderful city has to offer! If you roll right, you’ll get the chance to dance the night away on the Strand, perform in the orchestra of a musical at the theatre on Tottenham Court Road, or even get to grips with the teddies at the toy shop on Regents Street. Shadows cast from street lighting and neon signs across an unmistakable skyline, the City Board will give you an exhilarating night time adventure while you snap up some of London’s most iconic city streets.

Classic: Own It All Board

The Classic: Own It All Board and its challenges serve as an homage to Monopoly and the history of the properties available to purchase. Take on riddles in Downing Street or puzzles in Brick Lane to win big. Remember not to trigger the alarms as you attempt to steal artwork in Knightsbridge! Are you quick enough to beat your teammates and finally, Own It All?
