Anyone who knows me knows my love for Alice in Wonderland. As a person with multiple mental-illnesses (brain disorders as my mom calls them), I’ve always felt like Alice; like I don’t belong in this world.
If I could live in any world, it would absolutely hands-down be Wonderland. It has always had such a homey feel to me, and the words just speak to my soul. I’ve never cared much for princesses or finding my “prince charming.” Chasing white rabbits and trying to find out who I am has always been more my cup of tea.
Anytime Alice in Wonderland themed events happen in Cincinnati, I make it a point to be there! My mom and I made it a girls day of taking the older girls to lunch at Taziki then heading downtown for The Alice in Wonderland immersive experience.
“If you don’t know where you are going, then you can take any road.”
We started down the rabbit hole to the first bar.
The girls LOVED this room. Everything was backwards and upside down and they could not believe it.
“People who don’t think shouldn’t talk.”
“I haven’t the slightest idea.”
“Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.”
The chairs hanging from the ceiling was their favorite part in this room, as well as searching for all of the doorknobs throughout the room.
We went deeper into the rabbit hole through this corridor of clocks.
“If you knew time as well as I do, you wouldn’t talk about wasting it.”
Until finally, we landed in Wonderland.
“You may have noticed I’m not all there myself.”
The animated Cheshire Cat was so fun!
Each group was led back one at a time and seated at our tables. I was glad that we were the second group to go and I was able to get pictures without other guests in it.
Our table was so cute! The girls and I shared mocktails and my mom had the real cocktails.
“She gave herself very good advice (though she very seldom followed it)”
“If everyone minded their own business, the world would go around a great deal faster than it does.”
“I’m not strange, weird, off, nor crazy; my reality is just different than yours.”
In order to make our tea, we had to solve 3 riddles. Each time we got a riddle correct, we were given another ingredient to add.
We also had a fun drink where we painted in our foam with chocolate. I drew a mushroom. 🍄
Crochet was set up for the Queen of Hearts. During her part, we were on trial for stealing her tarts. When they picked Mia, she became so scared of losing her head that she began to cry.
“You’re entirely bonkers. But I’ll tell you a secret, all the best people are.”
I loved how similar the font here was to my tattoo. It made me feel right at home.
This really was such a fun experience and if you are able to, I highly suggest going.
They are offering experiences now through March. It is a mostly adult-only event, with a few Family Friendly opportunities as well which is the experience that we went for. I imagine the adult only experience is even better!
Tickets are $45 per person which includes drinks, treats, and an experience you won’t forget!
Event takes place at 140 Marian Spencer Way, Cincinnati, Ohio 45202 inside The Sample Space.
