Otherworld is billed as an “immersive art experience.” It’s housed in an old theater in a nearly-abandoned shopping mall southeast of Columbus, Ohio. We drove down right after we landed in town and arrived when the place was not at all crowded.
It cost us $22 each to get in, and this was really our only beef. It wasn’t nearly as large or as interesting as it pretended to be, but it was a mildly-amusing way to spend an hour. It was certainly more interesting than sitting in a hotel room would have been.
The inside space was divided into 30 or 40 small rooms, each with its own design. Most were dark. All of them felt a little like a good place to pick up a virus. Here are some of the better rooms.
Otherworld was definitely the place where local youths went to take Instagram photos.
