Hint Hunt – JMs Office

I was invited by Love Popups London to participate in Hint Hunt‘s JM’s Office escape game. We gathered at Euston station and walked over to the Hint Hunt offices, they house several identical rooms of each of their games, so we were able to race each other in two teams, which is always a great incentive when working…

Poppa Plock’s Wonky Workshop

After playing Lady Chastity’s Reserve and really enjoying it, we jist had to try out Handmade Mysteries‘ new game, Poppa Plock’s Wonky Workshop. It’s located in the beautiful The Depot pub in north London. We gathered in the pub for a drink and waited for our time slot. A few minutes later, a man dressed as a toy soldier picked…

A Door In A Wall – Horses For Corpses

Today I got to go along to A Door In A Wall’s new Horses For Corpses, an outdoor murder mystery set in Stables Market in Camden. It is set up to be a 3 hour adventure in which you follow clues and solve riddles to find out who, why and how. We gathered in the office…

Codebreakers – Mission Breakout

A friend of mine organised a team to try Mission Breakout, a WWII themed escape room situated in an old, disused tube station. South Kentish Town station was closed in 1924 and was subsequently used as an air raid shelter when needed. The building alone is definitely worth a visit! This room is fully immersive, which…

Escape From Alcatrax – Adventox

This is a sequel to Adventox – Mission X, as we did both rooms on the same night. After averting a missile being launched into London, we gave our feedback to the owners and were again really lucky in being offered to preview the second room, Alcatraz, after a short break. This one has more of…

Mission X – Adventox

I was lucky to snap up a preview slot with Adventox, a new escape game company in Shepherd’s Bush. They’re in a super convenient location, which is rare for this type of company, often warehouses, industrial areas, or large spaces in office buildings are used for escape games; Adventox have found a beautiful, slick space inside…

Crystal Maze

I had heard a lot about the Crystal Maze; while I’d never seen the show, a lot of my friends were raving about how awesome it was. The high ticket price was a bit of a deterrent for me though. A friend sent me a last minute invite to be on her team that same…

Houdinis Last Trick – EscapeMobile

When I heard about the Escape Mobile (which, as of the time of writing this, don’t seem to have an actual website) I knew I had to give it a go! An escape room type game inside a little van. How great is that! They featured at the Vaults festival, so I gathered a group of…

The Celestial Chain

After having tried The Lance Of Longinus before and hearing they were opening a second room, we simply had to return to Time Run to try out The Celestial Chain. As usual, arrival is a little awkward as they don’t have a waiting room and only let you in a few minutes before your booking….

Million Pound Heist

Another day, another escape room! Well, this one isn’t quite an escape room per se, it’s a bank heist! Which sounds even more fun if you ask me. I already did Enigma Quests’ School Of Witchcraft And Wizardry, which was amazing, so when they announced a kickstarter to finance this new room, I just had to…

Mind The Game

Another escape game we just had to try out. We booked our spot for Sunday afternoon, half of our team had visited Highgate Cemetery in the morning and with rail replacement buses being confusing and unreliable, we Ubered to arrive with just a few minutes to spare. The owner greeted us politely and let us have…

Time Run – The Lance Of Longinus

Time Run is a fantastic experience! These people really have the immersive part of this business down. From the moment you arrive, they play their roles and get you into the mood. The actors were fantastic and the steampunky time travel theme is really well done. Without giving anything away about the actual riddles and…
