Bloggers – who needs ‘em?

“Part of the support network for any emerging industry, should be the presence of the bloggers”. I’ve been blogging for almost 15 years, from the early days of Blogger.com, and long before it had the widespread presence that we find… Continue reading →

Alcatraz
Escape Reality - Coventry

I have to admit that the ‘prison break’ escape room is not particularly attractive to me.  It’s well overdone for the scope that such a theme can offer, but being Escape Reality we were hoping for some creative expansion on… Continue reading →

Captain Riddles Forgotten Fortune
ClueHQ - Birmingham

A good pirate story line, with Captain Riddle pillaging the area for hidden treasure and gold.  The game is based around that objective, so you know you’re always working to find the riches.  It was good to see ClueHQ extend… Continue reading →

Get In! Norris Box Puzzle – no more getting out…

The Norris Box had piqued my interest from the moment I first heard about it at the Great Escape Unconference.  There were two things in particular…. firstly, I loved the idea of instead of escaping out of somewhere, you were… Continue reading →

Demon Barber
CyberQ - Worcester

We were passing through Worcester on a jaunt to a balloon flight, so stopped off at CyberQ to give them a try.  We booked in with Demon Barber, which is very much a paper based detective/sleuth storyline. Lots of information… Continue reading →

Operation Moonshine
The Escaporium - Halifax

Operation Moonshine is the first room created by Angela and Mark for their new company, The Escaporium.  I was invited to team up with Jane Norris to be one of the final testers on this new room and to offer… Continue reading →

Walkie Talkie – Squawky Dorky

Here’s the thing…. I’m a stickler for items within the room fitting in with theme and being congruent to the storyline.  That’s probably just a minimum level of expectation for entering an Escape Room.  We want things to make sense,… Continue reading →

Lost Tomb
Extreme Escape - Stockport

This is a room built with love! Which is the only way you can describe the wonderful creation that is the Extreme Escape Lost Tomb. The craftsmanship, the theme, the intelligent design of puzzles and props – all wonderful. You… Continue reading →

The Iron Kingdom
Escape Reality - Leeds

We were invited by Escape Reality Leeds to try two of their rooms, and had a really enjoyable afternoon with them.  The first room – Iron Kingdom – is based loosely on Game of Thrones and entering the room we… Continue reading →

Down the Rabbit Hole
Escape Reality - Leeds

Our second game of the afternoon with Escape Reality. This room starts really well, it transports you into an ‘alternate’ world where things are backwards and upside down and wonderfully quirky.  It was great fun just to get past the… Continue reading →

The Million Pound Heist
Enigma Quests - London

I’d like to say we chose this game to keep our themes varied, but I think the real reason is that we all like a bit of exhilarating pressure when you finally get to the cash. The Enigma Quests building… Continue reading →

Revenge of the Sheep
ClueQuest - London

After planning a day out to do some London escape games, Revenge of the sheep was top of our list and first to do on the day. And boy did it live up to our high expectations! Upon entering the… Continue reading →
