Fire Hazard: Undercover

A brilliantly varied couple of hours wandering round the streets of London pretending to be spies. Fire Hazard, as ever, deliver an excellent urban street game.

A Door in a Wall: Played to Death

Another installment from the masters of the immersive theatre treasure hunt. A brilliant murder mystery puzzle to solve, some fun puzzles along the trails and great immersive theatre.

The House of Time and Wonder

Disney, Timeout and clueQuest take over a four storey townhouse in Shoreditch and fill it with flamingo croquet, a mad hatter comedian, an origamist and photo booths for a surreal evening’s entertainment.

Hide and Shriek: Dead Centre

A fun, one hour zombie experience set in a working shopping centre. Plenty of zombies, lots of different scenes, good use of the space and a fitting finale.

A Door in a Wall: A Veiled Threat

A once a month extravaganza in Islington. Easier puzzles but more interaction, this is another great performance from the masters of immersive, puzzly theatre.

Block Stop: Counter Call

I’ve really enjoyed some of the immersive theatre that I’ve attended in the past, but I’ve always felt there was something missing.

A few words on a webpage and a slightly cryptic voicemail in a YouTube video

Incredible Midtown: The game

Outside the room When I booked Incredible Midtown, I really wasn’t sure what to expect. The prices (only £12 per person plus booking fee) suggested something on the treasure hunt end of the spectrum, but there were hints that it might be a little more impressive. Certainly the pedigree gave me high hopes – Secret

A Door in a Wall: Appetite for Murder

Before the event Ever since The Life and Death of Paul Marrane, I’d been waiting for A Door in a Wall‘s next outing, so as soon as they announced Appetite for Murder, I emailed out to the usual suspects and started putting together a team. In fact, a team of teams – people had enjoyed last time

Background   Before I’d even got home from City Dash: Code Red my team mates were already organising a trip to Shadow over Shoreditch, a monster packed version set over in the City. On the face of it, this looked very similar. Get codes, avoid guards, compete against other teams. We’d enjoyed it last time round, so
