Photos: Otherworld Gears Up for Soft Opening
Otherworld, the immersive art experience set to call Columbus home, is gearing up for a soft opening in the coming months. As nearly 40 rooms and scenes come together, presale ticket holders will have the opportunity to get a first look before an official grand opening is set for late April or early May.
Columbus Underground toured the work that has been done so far, including rooms surrounded by light beams and reflective floors, interactive light orbs and projective screens, mini-murals, and as promised, a 20-foot tall tree and cave.
There are two different story arcs to Otherworld, says creative director Jordan Renda. As visitors move through scenes and uncover Otherworld’s dystopian backstory, they will uncover symbols used to unlock different rooms.
Visitors will have the ability to touch orbs that will change the color of the 20-foot tall tree. Behind the tree is a tower set to be covered in thousands of LED lights, and in the center will be a device that, once a hand is placed over it, will change the color of the entire tower.
