Fox in a Box Madrid: Zombie Lab

Outside the room Conveniently, on our Saturday night in Madrid we’d booked a restaurant just off Gran Vía and our reservation ended at 10:45pm. Convenient, because Fox in a Box is situated just a block or two away and has an 11pm slot – the latest in Madrid. No doubts what I was going to be

The Rombo Code: Casanova

Outside the room Half an hour after I’d left their other room I was back in the Rombo Code to play “la fuga de Casanova”. This time round it was a bit different because it was our teambuilding event. We’d split 18 people into six groups and then lined up the groups in pairs to play the “battle

So how have things moved on since the last update in August? Well, I did indeed visit Escape Hunt – Theft from the Laboratory, Breakout Liverpool – Classified, St Helens vs the Lizards, Code to Exit: Blueprint, Breakout Manchester – Virus, Escape Plan – The Adventure Begins and City Dash: Code Red. Phew. And, unbelievably, it only gets busier… October (in fact – I’m so late with this

The Rombo Code: Capítulo 43

Outside the room Some things just work out incredibly well. I’d been put in charge of organising a team building trip to Madrid for the forty or so people in my team. Naturally (although not at my suggestion, I hasten to add) we’d ended up with an escape room as one of our activities. In

Background When I’m not escaping, working or spending time with my family, you’ll most likely find me running. Unlike with escaping, it’s been a slow burning romance, where I started off hating it, started to like it, then love it, and eventually became addicted to it. I’m a bit of a loner though and most of my runs are early morning affairs

Escape Plan: The Adventure Begins

A well-themed escape room with some interesting mechanical puzzles and a fantastic host. It’s missing that final wow factor to make it a truly outstanding room but it’s packed with good puzzles.

I’ve got a bunch of things backed up (Escape Plan visit, City Dash, and a mini “escape room” type thing I created for my children), four escape rooms booked for this weekend, and a couple of articles I wanted to write covering the treasure hunt that we ran today at work. By the time I get round to finishing them

Background Perhaps this should be entitled “How I got into escape rooms”, because, back in 2013, this was what started me on the path. I’d been tasked with organising a trip to Brussels for 120 people, and I needed to put together various activities to entertain them on the Saturday. Go karting, beer brewing and

Breakout Manchester: Virus

Outside the room It’s been a long time since I’ve headed into the centre of Manchester, and I didn’t really know what to expect. What I certainly didn’t expect to be paying nine pounds for two hours of parking. I thought things were meant to be cheap up North!?! In fairness, Breakout Manchester is located right in

Code to Exit: Blueprint/Edward Teller's Room

Outside the room I couldn’t believe my luck when I asked Mrs Logic how she’d like to spend a spare day and she suggested another escape room. Four in five days might seem excessive, but I’m on holiday, so I offer no excuses. Of course, trying to book an escape room on the day limits your
