As most Netflix fans will attest, Black Mirror has undoubtedly been one of the stand-out shows of the past decade.
So, when some bright spark over at Thorpe Park decided to combine Charlie Brooker’s warped world with the realities of a theme park, it’s safe to say they had our attention.
Based on, you guessed it, none other than the dark and technologically sinister show, Thorpe Park’s latest attraction is set to swap g-force for digi-force.
Black Mirror Labyrinth is the world’s first live Black Mirror experience and takes visitors on a journey they describe as a ‘a sensory-defying dimension’.
As the name would suggest, the new concept involves a maze combined with ‘cutting-edge visual technology’ that’s set to merge the lines between fiction and reality.
Set to open at Thorpe Park in late March, the new experience asks: “will you keep your grip on reality or will you lose yourself in the digital mainframe?”
In basic terms, it means that this labyrinth is set to be an experience that will hit a little too close to home.
In addition to the Black Mirror Labyrinth, the park has also announced the return of the park’s Fright Nights - set to scare any self-respecting horror fan.
Set to join Derren Brown's Ghost Train and The Walking Dead: The RIde, Black Mirror Labyrinth will join a host of exciting (and goosebump inducing) rides.

A man has been seriously injured in a stabbing at Thorpe Park following an altercation between two groups.
The man in his 20s was slashed in his stomach on a footbridge near the exit of the resort in Surrey shortly before 17:00 BST.
The theme park said on-site medical staff were at the scene "within minutes".
Surrey Police said two men in their 20s had been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder.
Visitors were locked down inside the park while police attended, with pictures on social media showing crowds building up as the bridge was cordoned off.
Police said two groups of people were involved in an altercation on the bridge close to the park's exit.
One man was treated for a slash wound to his stomach and is in hospital in a serious condition, the force added.
'Excellent track record'
Det Insp Andy Greaves appealed for witnesses and said officers were tracing "all those believed to have been involved".
"I'm keen to hear from anyone who saw what happened or who has video footage of this assault," he said.
"The two groups of people were close to the exit inside the park on the bridge when the assault took place."
South East Coast Ambulance Service said it was called to the park at about 16:50 following reports of a person with an abdominal injury.
Paramedics treated one person who was taken to a London hospital.
Thorpe Park said its on-site medical staff provided emergency first aid and said it was helping police with inquiries.
"The health, safety and security of our guests is our primary objective. We have an excellent security track record and have never had any incidents of this kind in over 40 years," a spokesman said.
Thorpe Park reopened on 4 July after being shut due to the coronavirus pandemic.
