Review: Pirate Ship - Extremescape, Disley

Room Story - from Extremescape

A long time ago on the Carribean seas sailed the Spanish Galleon, Castoria. Captained by Zak Barrow and crewed by a gang of murderers & merciless cutthroats. Plundering ships of all kinds along India’s Malabar coast, Barrow was a Pirate, one of the most infamous Pirates of all time.

In rough seas, the merchant vessel fired but due to a sudden ocean swell, the shot missed its mark. The pirates threw their grappling hooks, bringing the two ships together. And rapidly boarded the ship, soon Captain Barrow was in the possession of one of the greatest pirate treasures ever.

The ship disappeared in 1722 and was not seen again until now!

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 …
