Interactive 'Squid Game' challenge tests fans in LA - Times of India

Los Angeles: Jabbar Lewis and Nick Ash watched every episode of “The squid game” — and they were sure they could handle the deadly schoolyard encounters. They never thought they’d actually get the chance to try.
In “Squid Game: The Trials” in Los Angeles, fan People of all ages can relive the most emotional moments of Netflix’s South Korean hit show — but there’s very little blood and no one wins any prize money.
“It’s so funny that even without a $4.56 million cash prize, you really feel the stakes in the game. I found myself sweating and shaking and I would do it again,” said Ashe, 27.
“It’s like the show came to life. It came out of my TV and I got to step out into the world.”
In a series of rooms, organizers of immersive L.A The attraction sets harmless versions of the brutal games depicted in the series, in which misfits and criminals play a gamble: win the prize or die.
Netflix says it hopes viewers will be drawn into the show’s universe — and its reality competition spin-off — from the get-go.
Players are greeted by the frontman, who oversees the game, wearing his tiny fuchsia jumpsuit and black mask with symbols.
Classic “squid game” challenges like Glass Bridge and the Dalgona Candy Game have been recreated, as has the all-time favorite: “Red Light, Green Light,” complete with a giant, menacing, motion-sensing doll.
“It was real!” Melanie Gilano said.
Fellow visitor Andrew Lynn said: “It felt like you were sort of in the show.”
Participants wear wristbands that resonate when they “die” in a The challengebut some joked that they hoped for more reality.
“I expected to die for real,” joked Choi Hyombum. “I realized it’s not the same as (the show), but I’m still having fun.”
Lewis, who won his round, said of it, “The ‘squid game’ just represents determination to win, determination to win. And it takes a lot of strategy.”
When asked how he planned his victory, Lewis replied: “Stay low in the background and then come up like a shark and destroy everyone.”
