Interactive Entertainment: Get Involved In The Action

About Me
Finding Family Friendly Entertainment

A few months ago, we realized that one of the shows we had been letting our kids watch contained some adult material. It was frustrating to learn that the network had made so many allowances, but we were left with a crucial task on our hands. We knew that we had to find some family friendly entertainment for our children. We started paying closer attention to ratings and reviews, and eventually we came across a website that talked all about different show content. I want to help other parents to keep their kids safe, which is why this blog is dedicated to family friendly entertainment options.

Interactive Entertainment: Get Involved In The Action

If you're tired of sitting back and watching all of the action happen on the big screen, then it's time to get involved in a real life adventure. Luckily, you don't have to travel across the globe seeking thrills. There are new interactive games and theater experiences that will provide you with the action and entertainment you are looking for.

Here is a list of three types of interactive entertainment that you can choose from. Each caters to a different audience, so see which is right for you.

Murder Mystery Dinner Party

Do you love reading mystery novels and watching murder dramas on television? If so, then you should definitely check out a murder mystery dinner theater party. These are interactive events where the audience becomes part of the cast for the night.  Unlike regular theater, in a murder mystery dinner theater, the cast will often move among the audience. They will improvise conversations with dinner patrons and bring them into the story line.

There are lots of different settings to choose from. Some theaters will cast the story in an old English manor house with a classic English detective. Other settings might be a 1940's NYC with mobsters and hard-nosed detectives. There are lots of settings so you can go to multiple events and experience more than one type of story.

Escape The Room

If you're a fan of suspense movies where the hero is trapped in a room and has to escape in order to avoid certain death or save the day, then you have got to check this game out. They are designed for a small group of people to play. The group is placed in a room and the door is locked. They then have a set amount of time to escape the room. There is no key in the room, only a series of objects that double as clues. The group has to use these clues to help figure out how to open the door. For more information, contact Houdini’s Room Escape or a similar company.

Midnight Movies: Cult Camp

If you're into cult or campy movies, then you should do yourself a favor and check out a midnight screening where the audience gets involved. Some movies have attracted such a large following that audience members dress up as characters and get up in front of the screen and act out the roles. Other movies, particularly the early zombie films, have become so popular that around Halloween some theaters will host midnight screenings where the audience comes dressed as zombies. You don't have to dress up to go to these events. You might just enjoy seeing the spectacle.
