I booked the Escape Rooms back in September for Scott’s birthday (that’s the problem with December birthdays as it means you have to book months in advance). It’s a five minute walk from London Bridge station, and it’s a real-life escape game where you’re locked inside a themed room where you and your team need to solve a series of puzzles, riddles and hints in order to escape within 60 minutes.
They recommend Room 33 for four people, yet Scott and I felt up to the challenge. I can honestly say we were gutted when we found out that we were only 30 seconds over the time limit. After reading reviews afterwards, most said this room was for more experienced players, so I’m really chuffed at our time and effort.
All the rooms are themed: Room 33 is set in 1675 China, and you’re lost one of the emperor’s prized processions, a golden vase. You and your team stumble upon a time machine where you’ll travel to Room 33 of the British Museum and you’ll need to find the vase and bring it back to the emperor.
I found it odd that one of the tasks is a physical one (you have to avoid lasers and if you hit them you’ll receive a time penalty), and a smaller group definitely helps with this.
I cannot express how much fun we had, Scott and I are dying to go back and try the Pharaoh’s Chamber!
