A review of Tulleys Farm’s Hallowe’en attraction, Shocktoberfest. It’s a festival of fun with a variety of interesting attraction and a carnival feel to the whole event. If you’re not entirely turned off by scares then I’d recommend giving it a go. I did and I was surprised how much I enjoyed it!
A fun medium-length mystery from A Door in a Wall. Blink and you’ll miss it though – this was a one weekend only event that took place at the end of August.
Dead Man’s Hand wasn’t my favourite of the A Door in a Wall games but it’s still a very enjoyable experience and I suspect that we went a long just a little too early to fully appreciate it.
A game that’s little more than a walk round a park solving some puzzles on your phone. On a warm summer’s evening, it’s just about reasonable for a team of two but I wouldn’t sign up with a larger team unless you’re getting a discount.
An immersive game where, if you put your trust in the show, you’ll have a great time. Especially recommended for those who like to take a big role in immersive theatre productions.
A review of Hidden Figures, a fun experience that saw us working our way through a variety of missions including a mini-escape room, interacting with a variety of actors and some tough moral decisions.
A review of three rooms at The Escape Room in Manchester. As with most of the games at this chain, they were linear, relied heavily on darkness and didn’t generally produce puzzles that impressed. The one highlight between them was the Secret Lab, a game that used to be raved about but even that is showing its age.
Every year, I find a couple of things that look interesting at the Vaults and head down to try them out. This time round, one of those experiences was Lamplighters, which appeared to be some sort of immersive gaming theatre event. Add to that a friend vouching for the central (and only) actor as being
Back to their best: Dead Drop is A Door in a Wall’s usual combination of great performance, fun puzzles, a convoluted mystery and a smattering of outrageous puns. I highly recommend.
A great taster event for A Door in a Wall. If you’re looking to organise a fun birthday party or corporate event with plenty of time for mingling then it’s a great choice. Don’t go in expecting their usual full scale events and you’ll likely come away very happy with the experience.
