Nellie Bly – aka Elizabeth Jane Cochran – was an American journalist of Irish descent. Inspired by the tales of Jules Verne’s fictional character Phileas Fogg, she travelled around the world in a record breaking 72 days. Now, you can too in this life-size game depicting Nellie’s journey! Adapted from an out of print 1890’s board game, take on fellow members of the public and try to beat Bly in record-breaking time. Each roll of the dice presents a new challenge, such as answering a trivia question, performing a comedy piece, or taking on your neighbour in a game of wits or mischief!
1 x ticket required for each individual wishing to take part in the game. Ticket entitles you to take part in the game only, and does not include entry to EPIC’s main museum exhibitions.
