We’ve completed the Unweave the Rainbow series that Alone has created with its final installment called Absorption. During this journey we have been immersed in a surreal experience where we learned about ourselves and the properties of light. Absorption is the interception of radiant energy or sound waves. This is a much darker experience that takes you even deeper into your self.
The event takes place at a facility that was once used for film processing and the location is used to perfection. Alone centers itself with the locations it uses. Through the 45 minute experience you’ll go through the different rooms and passageways of the building seeing a different scene. Some of them were scary while others were slightly disturbing or even funny.
From what we got out of our experience is that you become an employee of Alone or bigger yet, The Enola Foundation. We won’t give anything away, but you’re put to different tests, shown a few clips that talk about being alone and the properties of light, then receive a company mission statement. Like Alone experiences in the past, most of the characters within aren’t even in makeup or costume, but there are some that have taken on a rather mysterious persona including being dressed as corporate employees.
This is a much darker experience than the past few Alone installments and you will be touched, grabbed, pushed around and even danced with. They’ve incorporated some really cool elements which include an interaction with an unseen voice and the creative use of a chair.
This was one of our favorite experiences at Alone, only being beat out by the first year. But maybe that’s because we got a chance to do a paranormal investigation at the location it was held at before we went through. This location as well has a weird vibe and sorry to use the pun, but at times when there’s no one else around you’ll actually feel like you’re not alone.
Before you even go through Absorption you have the chance to unlock a clue that will take you into another room. The acting in the scene is incredible, as is all the acting in Alone. Although at times creepy, the experience is absolutely beautiful and spellbinding. Not only is it a haunt, but rather a living art piece that explores the human element. You have one more week to check it out and we say that it is must! We can’t wait to see what they have in store next time around.
