Crackit Bolton: Boot Camp

A fun game but, of the three experiences at Crackit, this felt the weakest. In part that’s the theme but mainly it’s because the puzzles are a bit too long/difficult for the format. Definitely try the other two first and play this one once you’re more experienced!

Crack It Bolton: Pirate Cove

An experience every bit as good as Haunted House at the same venue, with fun puzzles that span the range of skill and mental challenges. They’ve improved the overall experience since our previous visit with far better instructions which results in better flow to the game.

Trends: Team challenge arcades

Thoughts on one future direction of the ER industry where teams play many entirely separate individual games as part of an overall experience.

Crack It (Bolton): Haunted Mansion

Sometimes rough around the edges, this is packed with fun puzzles and fantastic value for a couple of enthusiasts. Expect to get a full hour of fun with physical and mental challenges.
