Metaphysica is taking it up a notch, offering a virtual reality escape room experience. Expect to be transported to another dimension of space and time- you may find yourself in the unknown depths of the ocean, skyrocketing into space or exploring a sorcerer’s laboratory and see if you can escape. We love Metaphysica because it means we can challenge ourselves in situations that would not be safe (or probably allowed) in any other environment.
