It works like this...
Pick your board!
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.
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.
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.
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 Vault 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.
Travel around Mr Monopoly's very fun fairground competing in family friendly challenges.
Suitable for families with children aged 5-8
Now Play The Game!
Once you arrive at our spectacular venue, the friendly team of staff will welcome you by scanning your tickets and checking you into your game. You'll then be taken to our gameplay briefing room where your Monopoly Lifesized experience will begin!
First things first, it’s time to meet Mr Monopoly himself! He’ll welcome you to your game and introduce you to your teammates and rival teams. Teams themselves will be no larger than 6 people and there are 4 teams on each board. He’ll also introduce you to your playing token who will guide you through the experience. After a short briefing and explanation of the rules (as well as a couple of quick games to get the blood pumping), you’ll be taken upstairs to your playing board and prepare yourselves for the game to begin!
As the countdown winds its way down to the start, you’ll have an opportunity to take in your surroundings as you step onto your game board for the first time. When the countdown finishes, the game begins! If it’s your turn to do so, you’ll roll the die and move accordingly. If the property you land on isn’t owned then you’ll have an opportunity to buy it but, this is real life, it’s not as easy as just paying the money – there are hoops to jump through! A number of your team members will enter the property through a door off the board and complete a short challenge within the space with the rest of the team watching on. If you are successful in completing the challenge, you’ll buy the property and retain the property card! If not, it will be auctioned off for one of the other teams to swoop in and take it…
If it’s not your turn to roll the die, you’ll receive a Chance Card have an opportunity to take a strategy turn. Perhaps you’ll choose to take a Community Chest Card, or maybe manage your finances, or perhaps choose to build a house on a property you own (easier said than done). The choice is yours. You’ll need to use your properties and cards tactically to make as much money as possible.
Some properties have special abilities that will be important in your journey to becoming the ultimate capitalize. Utility squares will allow you to control the city’s energy, water, or internet supply; and the Train Stations will allow you to charge your rivals to journey around the board while you get to travel for free! Don’t forget to avoid Jail, though… you’ll have to escape if you want to avoid the bail.
Seventy frenetic, exhilarating, and exasperating minutes later with more ups and downs than the stock market, the ultimate champion will be revealed and will be able to revel in their glory! Receiving the plaudits of your opposition, you will be able to make your way back to the restaurant for some well-earned refreshments!
