Behind the scenes recording a TV show segment for What Britain Buys (Channel 4) on escape rooms with Mary Portas.
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.
An adrenaline rush of a game. On theme from before you even enter the room and an outstanding performance from the zombie, but let down by the puzzles.
Musings from Dan Egnor, an experienced escape room player who visited London in Spring 2016 and took in most of the best London Escape rooms.
All this month’s news from the London scene. AI Escape and the Crystal Maze finally open after a long wait, info on new games at clueQuest and Enigma Quests. Expansion at Handmade Mysteries and rumours of TV mention.
The remake of the classic 90s TV series of the same name. With a million pound kickstarter, bookings stretching out a year in advance and media praising them left, right and centre they had a lot to live up to. How did they fare?
A once a month extravaganza in Islington. Easier puzzles but more interaction, this is another great performance from the masters of immersive, puzzly theatre.
A room whose difficulty is derived from an almost impossible to solve puzzle, rather than general hardness. If you go here, be prepared to be frustrated!
A very basic, unpretentious room. A decent game for novices, although experienced players will likely be disappointed by the decor and lack of interesting puzzles.
A solid room with some brilliant moments. Great for novices, but still fun for small groups of experienced players.
