London Dungeon

On Sunday I was invited by Love Popups London to check out the London Dungeon tour. Last time I attended the London Dungeon is about 11 years ago, so I was curious to see if anything had changed with this popular tourist attraction. We arrived a little before our noon time slot and got to…

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…

The Big London Bake

Last night, I was invited by Love Popups London to attend one of The Big London Bake‘s bake off sessions in Tooting. I was given two tickets free of cost in exchange for reviewing the experience. The gifted tickets do not influence my review at all. In the back of a gorgeous beer garden of…

Komnata – Droctor Frankenstein

I was invited to play Komnata‘s Doctor Frankenstein room by Love Popups London the other day. The room’s premise is quite simple, the Professor has been trying to create artificial life, but just as he was close to a breakthrough, he has gone missing. We have one hour to unravel the mystery of what happened…

A Door In A Wall – Dead Man’s Hand

I was invited by Love Popups London to come along to A Door In A Wall‘s Dead Man’s Hand immersive murder mystery game. After having played their Horses For Corpses game a while ago, I was excited to try this new one out! Seeing as none of the three people on our team plays poker,…

Hidden City – Moriarty’s Game

Having played The Hund For The Cheshire Cat previously, I had to try out another Hidden City game. We opted for Moriarty’s Game by Hidden City and headed out on a beautiful Saturday afternoon to master this challenge. Hidden City provide self-guided games that work through messages on your phone, no app necessary, and take…

Secret Cinema – Blade Runner

I have a complicated relationship with Secret Cinema. Some of their events are amazingly immersive, others just lack in engagement and entertaiment and don’t warrant the very steep price tag. But as a fan of the original Blade Runner film, I felt I really had to try this one out. As usual with Secret Cinema…

Escape The Cantina

When I heard about MovieEscape‘s Escape The Cantina game, I knew I had to organise a group of friends to go and try this one out. Basically, it’s a full scale rebuilt of the famous Star Wars bar, with a themed escape game inside it! It took a little time to organise a large group…

Inkwell Investigations

Yesterday I was invited to take part in an event organised by Inkwell Investigations for Love Popups London. The adventure is described on their website thusly: Solve fiendish puzzles! Get betrayed by your closest friend!  Die horribly at the hands of angry Romans!  A routine adventure with Professor Inkwell’s time machine goes drastically wrong and the investigators find…

Cluedupp Manhunt – Covent Garden

A friend recommended Cluedupp Manhunt to me as an outdoor escape room like murder mystery game, so I assembled a small group and we headed out together to solve a murder. This game is played via an app, which is very convenient as you can choose what time to start on the specified day and…

GoBoat

Yesterday I was invited for a boat trip along Regents Canal courtesy of Love Popups London and GoBoat with refreshments provided by Fentimans.  GoBoat is the only self-drive boating experience in London, with their 8-seater boats powered by electric engines they provide a unique social experience, and best of all, it’s very safe and there’s no previous boating experience required. …

Paris Catacombs

While on my trip to Paris, I managed to get into the Catacombs, which I’ve been wanting to do for a while! The catacombs are a set of deep underground tunnels serving as an ossuary to more than six million people’s remains. The tunnels are sparsely lit and a little eerie, but quite safe and…
