Review: Butcher - Escapologic, Nottingham

Room Story - from Escapologic

Anna and Max have the kind of relationship everyone pretends to find annoying. But really, their friends are just a little bit jealous. Because you can see how much these two people are meant to be together. They just-fit.

Anna is daring and inquisitive, Max is sensible. She encourages him to try new things. He stops her from doing stupid stuff.

USUALLY. But not today.

show more.... Maybe it's the sunshine. Maybe it's the wine. Because today, when Anna finds a randomly-unlocked shutter on a random side street, Max isn't quick enough to persuade her not to go inside. His mind is on the picnic they've just had, the kisses they've shared. So what if Anna is intent on seeking out some new dark and gloomy pace to scare him with. It's just Anna being Anna, right? This is why he loves her.

It's just an adventure. A dare. It'll be OK.

And then the shutter bangs down, and everything is very far from OK.

Review: The Ruby Factory - Trapped In, Bury

Room Story - from Trapped In

Infiltrate the abandoned Ruby Factory and escape with as many rubies as possible before the security guards return. You will need to use physical and mental skills to operate the disused machinery and extract the rubies. This game isn't about how quickly you can get out, hence it's easy rating. To get on the leaderboard you'll need to collect the most rubies and successfully escape before the guards return.

After completing Interstellar, we returned to Trapped In the following week to do The Ruby Factory after reading some good reviews online and enjoying our previous experience at Trapped In. We’d booked the room on a Friday night, so it was an exciting end of week treat. But it wasn’t the most ideal time as we maybe weren’t at our sharpest at the end of the working week!

The Ruby Room is different than …

This was our first visit to Trapped In. It’s situated in a converted office building behind the main street in Bury Town Centre. Conveniently, there’s a car park right next door so it was easy to get to and easy to find. There are a couple of large signs outside the building so you really can’t miss it.

The waiting area is filled with a lot of table based puzzle games, so there are things to keep you entertained whilst waiting fo…

Review: Curio - Escapologic, Nottingham

Room Story - from Escapologic

Be careful what you wish for. An Englishman's home is his castle. Or his curio if he's a treasure hunter who's spent a lifetime collecting trinkets from all four corners of the globe. Alexander Curio was a true eccentric. A legendary explorer who left no stone unturned in his search for gems and gimcracks. To him, life was a gamble, with fate to be decided on a whim or a flip of a coin. A mysterious loner who loved to raise the stakes until they could be raised no higher.

show more.... Alexander's life was one big puzzle. Only a select few ever got beyond his front door. You're about to join their exclusive ranks. At first glance, Curio looks like the home of an explorer whose passion for chasing treasures has taken him from the Thames to Timbuktu. But the clue lies in the name. Secrets lie within her seemingly innocent walls and trinkets hold the key to untold riches. Fortune favours the brave but riches come at a price.

Review: Cryptic - Escapologic, Nottingham

Room Story - from Escapologic

The door creaks closed. In the pale light of your lantern, abandoned skeletons cast terrifying shadows on the walls. Frantically, you open your dusty satchel, praying for answers. Could this be all that remains of legendary explorer Crispin Sheppard, who mysteriously vanished all those years ago?

show more.... Rumours of an ancient curse shroud the stones of this pitch-black tomb. You're sure this is where the treasure is buried. But now you're all alone in the dark-and in the cold air of the crypt, something primeval is stirring...

Cryptic was the second Nottingham escape room to take shape in the diabolical mind of our creator! A secretive, mad genius who rarely sees the light, he delved deep into his love of the medieval, the mysterious, and classic adventure to bring you this compelling room.

Macabre, insidious, and packed with surprises, Cryptic is a room that doesn't suffer fools gladly. Take too many wrong turns as you try to puzzle o…
