I am in the part of Los Angeles that makes you feel like a movie star, and we are the 1st in line facing an iron gate that marks the entrance of The Willows Family Home. We are then greeted by a host that runs the itinerary of the night as well as the house rules. This is my first time at THE WILLOWS experience and almost 2 years for my companions and I must say I am saddened that it took me so long.
We began our evening in the sitting room where we can interact with other guests and the Willows family. As we wait drinks are poured in the hopes that you will interact with people and entertain ourselves with some of the colorful decorations that define The Willows Family. Some key interactions happen with the family members as we begin to meet more of them, and these interactions will help them decide where your night will venture to.
When it came time for dinner I was separated from my group as we are assigned seating in the dining room, this is where we meet Mrs. Willow. During the dinner we are given more drink and light eating as we are entertained by the exploits and stories of the family as they talk about the late great Jonathan Willows. The talk can seem endearing, but you start to sense that something sinister awaits, as guest introduce themselves and you begin to meet some of the most interesting like-minded people the true evening events start.
In all THE WILLOWS is a guest dinner immersive experience that is always changing from a night of celebration to mourning over the years, but if you can survive the horrors during a 2-hour dinner party. The Amazing Cast make it a night and experience you could have not imagined, with nothing to extreme or off putting it becomes a remarkable experience you find yourself reenacting over and over as the days pass. So please RSVP before it’s too late to obtain tickets to THE WILLOWS
