“Basically, there are three rooms, the protection one, thencomes the break and the relaxation. From there the whole experience is built by choosing, target objects, bats, clothes, music and then decide what you are going to drink at the end.So, you can tell yourself, OK, that’s it. I am done. I close with a flourish the whole experience.”
