Habitat 8

Running at the Auckland Stardome: an SF larp-adjacent event:

Habitat 8 is a high-stakes interactive space mission set on the planet Mars in the year 2034.

Stardome’s 360 degree planetarium dome has been transformed into the Launch Control Room of the Habitat 8 operating base.

When a solar flare endangers the base, everyone must work together to avert disaster. Quick thinking and teamwork will be critical. Have you got what it takes to survive?

Audience members are seated at working computer consoles with touch screen tablets and interactive dashboards. Guided by two expert engineers, everyone will be responsible for maintaining the base’s life support systems, managing the fuel production and directing the countdown for the latest rocket launch.

Experience something truly out of this world with friends and whānau as you become space engineers in this thrilling space adventure.

Habitat 8 will run for a strictly limited season at Stardome from 2nd – 17th October 2021, so don’t miss out on this first of its kind experience.

Shows run Tuesday – Sunday, 11am, 1pm and 7.30pm. Book now to avoid disappointment!

Which sounds pretty cool, and probably full of stealable ideas for SF larps.

Also, its from the people who did Apollo 13 many years ago, which was a very enjoyable larp-like experience.

I definitely would, Covid permitting.

I’d be up for that too!

[EDIT] I think the other half could be persuaded as well.
