Mission Camden

I found out about the new adventure of Mission Camden on Facebook, it consists of five different escape-room-esque puzzle trails troughout Camden, and it’s completely free throughout July and August (until the 26th of August). So I grabbed a friend and attempted two of the trails on a sunny Sunday afternoon. We started off at…

Colab Theatre – Spy City

Having previously attended Colab‘s The Swell Mob and The Copy Cat, I was very excited to be invited by Love Popups London to try out their newest adventure, Spy City. So we headed down to London Bridge on a sunny Saturday afternoon to try our luck at being super secret agents. We first arrived at…

Fox In A Box – Zodiac Killer

Last night we were invited to try out Fox In A Box‘s Zodiac Killer room, courtesy of Love Popups London. Fox In A Box is an escape room franchise company, their London location is in Dalston, just steps from the Overground and really easy to find. They have three different rooms, Zodiac Killer, The Bunker,…

Night Of The Living Dead Live

This afternoon I was invited by Love Popups London to attend the 5pm show of Night Of The Living Dead Live at the Pleasance Theatre in Islington. We were treated to premium on-stage platter zone seating, so upon arrival we were outfitted with dark grey boiler suits to cover our clothes with and provide a…

The Swell Mob

I was invited along to the press night of Flabbergast Theatre‘s new production The Swell Mob by Love Popups London, so I headed down to the Colab Factory near Borough Station to get immersed in the 1830s taproom setting of this whirlwind show. Upon arrival we were greeted by a variety of seedy characters, given…

Great British Mysteries – 1599

After having seen Great British Mysteries in their Edinborough previews two years ago (you can check out my review here) I’ve been wanting to see their prequel 1599 since I first heard about it. I finally got the chance when they had a short run at the Soho Theare. Olive Bacon and Teddy Tyrell are…

Hidden City – The Enchanted Mirror

I love the Hidden City trails, these are self-guided trails through different areas of London that are suitable for small groups and are played through text messages. So, after playing The Hunt For The Cheshire Cat as well as Moriarty’s Game, I finally decided to try out The Enchanted Mirror! This one is based around…

Recollection

I had the opportunity to try out Any One Thing‘s new show Recollection at a discount, so headed down to the pub where it starts to see what it was all about. At the starting point, we were immediately thrown into the action. This immersive show is very small, there were only four players in…

The Talented Mr. Ripley

Last night I got to see another play at the Vaults Festival, this time it was The Talented Mr. Ripley by The Faction. This production was quite scaled back due to the limitations of the theatre, but the space was very effectively used with a square of tables used in a variety of ways for…

Clue Adventures – 2 Tickets 2 Ride

After having played the book of secrets room months ago, I finally got to try Clue Adventures‘ two player escape room, 2 tickets 2 ride. Just like the room I previously played, this one has a very solid storyline that makes you feel like you’re actually achieving a goal, not just opening random boxes. The…

AIM Escape – Hangover Déjà Brew

Last week I was invited by Love Popups London to test out AIM Escape‘s Hangover room. Having already played two of their other rooms, I was very keen on trying this one out. They tend to have great electronic equipment and fun, unusual challenges, so I was hoping this one was no different. The blurb…

The Hunt For The Smoking Caterpillar – Buck Buck Games

The other day I got to try out Buck Buck Games‘ newest fun immersive experience, The Hunt For The Smoking Caterpillar. I was invited by Love Popups London to join a small team for this big group experience. The premise of this game is that the Baron of Wonderland as recruited us as gold hunters….
