CLIMB aboard a train and explore the world in just an hour.

Adventurers will be sent to 1870 and meet Phileas Fogg, the protagonist of Jules Verne’s novel Around The World In Eighty Days.

Phileas Fogg’s World of Adventures features theatrical actors, special effects, puzzles, escape room style challenges and 16 incredibly crafted sets designed by Craft Work, the team behind the sets of blockbuster movies like Star Wars, Harry Potter and James Bond.

The experience is the brainchild of Eastbourne resident Graham Owen, who said the adventure is unlike anything else the public will have ever experienced.

“I wanted something that was for everyone from seven to 70,” he said.

“There’s nothing like this in the world. You can go to the cinema, the theatre, an escape room, this is everything mixed together.”

Graham wants the experience to feel like a theatrical performance, that the audience are fully immersed in.

His team also ensured that all ages are able to take the trip around the world.

“Families can come, stag and hen dos, we can even take nursing homes on tours.

“We have a route which is a bit darker and more serious, but on Saturday mornings we’ll have a family route which is lighter and friendlier, where you can bring little ones along.”

Graham also hopes to experience will help families connect, away from the grasp of modern technology. He said: “Everyone is on their phones. We’ve blocked out the real world. When you go in and families can bond and connect over something.

The show opens to the public on Sunday in Sussex House, Hollingbury. Visit
