  • 🇮🇹🇮🇹🇮🇹🇮🇹🇮🇹🇮🇹🇮🇹🇮🇹🇮🇹🇮🇹🇮🇹🇮🇹🇮🇹🇮🇹Fantastic, a bit like total recall. The middle-aged Bologna was the best. The people with question marks around them, you click and they give you educational information. You firstly are at daytime in the street, you can go into certain shops, backyards, and the local tavern. Then you go up the tower and then fly. A bit scary and leaves grown-ups dizzy, but you can fly up onto coin things and they give you information. Then you land and have a torchlight in your hand, but you cannot set things on fire, as I tried. Then it starts to rain. You can stay out, or go into the tavern. Then it ends. In the discovering Tutankhamun's tomb experience you can click on certain objects to view them up close. You can also click on floating statues or books to hear Howard Carters notes.You are firstly are at the camp. You break down a wall, a short walk, and you break down another wall. You can explore 2 rooms. Then it ends. The experiences were on virtual reality headsets and headphones. The lady wouldn't let the 6 year old do the full on experience, though the man would. When I walked into a wall repeatedly on purpose, she kept redirecting me.😦
