Agent Venture

Last weekend, the Love Popups London gang attempted to work their way through both Agent Venture adventures. We started off with The Heist, which we had play-tested a little while ago. But as the game had been remodelled and extended, we got to try it again. It is now almost twice as long as it…

Hide And Shriek – Alien Escape

Being in lockdown due to the corona virus pandemic, I thought I’d use the time to work on my backlog of shows I never got around to review back when I actually saw them. I just don’t always have the time to write reviews right away and sometimes they just fall into an eternal backlog…

The Panic Room – CSI Grounded

Today I was invited by Love PopUps London to join her team to solve one of The Panic Room’s online escape adventures, CSI : Grounded. This adventure is played completely online. You need no printer or fancy setup, any internet capable device will do. We were given our access code, which works across multiple devices,…

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…

City Mazes – Pirates Of The Bay

After having played and greatly enjoyed Bamboozled at this location, we jumped at the chance to play Pirates Of The Bay while we were still in Cardiff. We figured this one would be of similar quality, but unfortunately that turned out to not be the case. But first things first. The room itself looks a…

City Mazes – Bamboozled

When I organised a group trip to Cardiff, I obviously had to talk people into trying out an escape room. After some research, I found City Mazes, which we chose mainly because they were able to provide for our accessibility needs, which is unfortunately still quite rare with escape rooms. We chose the Bamboozled room, which…

Jail Escape – Canterbury Escape Room

The second Canterbury escape room we tried was the Jail Escape from Canterbury Escape Room. This one is themed around a medieval jail cell that your team needs to break out of. To begin with, we were all shakled together with a long chain and shuffled into the first room to begin our quest. The first…

Alien Attack – Escape Kent

During our trip to Canterbury, we visited two escape room companies, the only two that existed in the town at the time. The first one was Escape Kent. As of the time of writing this, they had two rooms available, Alien Attack and Escape The Serialkiller. We decided on the Alien Attack room, in which you’re…

The 12 Deaths Of Christmas

As an escape room aficionado I had heard about Room Escape Southend, a company that organsises pop-up escape rooms, usually with a horror theme, for a few months at a time before switching to a different theme. We decided to get into the holiday spirit by visiting their 12 Deaths Of Christmas room, themed around a…
