While it can be said that current circumstances are a little like a Black Mirror episode, there’s now a theme park ride that places your tech-heavy existential crisis in one compact space. Why not, right?
This week, the Black Mirror Labyrinth opened at Thorpe Park, which is described as the “most thrilling” theme park in the UK. The attraction is a dystopian maze with a plot in line with the Netflix Sci-Fi anthology series, and just like how the show delves into personal lives, the experience will feel like an isolated one.
You’ll start off with your photo being taken—this will be projected on screens during the ride, whether you like it or not. Right off the bat, the ride aims to intrude on your privacy and spike your anxiety levels, Cracked reports.
You’ll then be introduced to an AI mastermind that wants to delete you from existence; the goal is to come out alive with the help of a mysterious hacker.
Thorpe Park has also hinted that Black Mirror Easter eggs have been scattered throughout the maze, waiting to be discovered.
“This twisted, sensory-defying maze puts you at the core of the Black Mirror universe and it wants to keep you there,” the theme park’s website describes. “Escape [it] or lose your mind trying.”
Honestly, what could possibly go wrong with this?
