Review: Egyptian - Escape Room Centre, Blackpool

Room Story - from Escape Room Centre

Thousands of years ago there ruled the Pharaoh Horus, named after the great falcon god. He prided himself on his intelligence and wit and spent much of his time studying puzzles and mysteries. With no children to inherit his kingdom he spent years building the Pyramid of Mysteries. Built to find a worthy successor of his kingdom.

Following its completion Horus lay down the challenge that whoever could escape the pyramid, within an hour, would inherit the whole of Egypt. Many tried, but all failed, every one of them becoming entombed forever!

His kingdom has long since gone but the Pyramid of Mysteries remains. Are you brave enough to take on the Pharaoh's challenge?

We’d booked a night away in Newcastle, so I thought it would be fun to play an escape room whilst there. We usually select games based on the reviews of other enthusiasts, but strangely, we couldn’t find anything for any of the games in Newcastle. We decided to play Voltatile Laboratories at EXIT Newcastle as it sounded like a fun game. We saw a video on their website with a trailer for the room that gave us a little sneak peak on what was in store.

EXIT Newcastle is based right in the heart of Newcastle city centre, near the o2 Academy. It’s got a big sign above the door so it’s not hard to miss. We were invited upstairs to the waiting area which had a “mansion” library feel to it with it’s desk…

Review: Curious Encounters - Escape Quest, Macclesfield

Room Story - from Escape Quest

Mr Copplestone aka “The Professor” is an inventor. His greatest invention is the world’s first time machine, built so he could travel through space and time to find interesting objects and life saving potions to sell in his curiosity shoppe.

Trials of the time machine have been taking place for many years and thanks to the brave testers, some who were unfortunately lost along the way, Mr Copplestone has a fully working and reliable time machine. Until…

Today something went wrong!

show more.... Mr Copplestone stepped into the time machine and set it to his required destination, all seemed to be working as usual. He pulled the switch to activate it and with a loud bang and a puff of smoke he was gone. The time machine’s vital equipment exploded and scattered into pieces around the shoppe.

As a failsafe measure Mr Copplestone had set an emergency portal to open in the future, which would allow rescuers to enter through it and into his Shoppe. The portal …
