“How often have I said to you that when you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth?” – Sherlock Holmes
Wise words from our Shezza.
And ones you most definitely shouldn’t forget if you're planning on trying out the below.
An interactive 'escape the room' live-game, The Escape Hunt Experience originated in Thailand in 2013 and has since erupted in more than 70 major cities across the globe. At their London operation, players assume the role of an unflappable detective, tasked with unravelling a complex and mysterious crime.
Definitely not one for those who hate their friends, upon arrival and once briefed, you’ll be locked in a room with your team where you’ll have exactly one hour to solve the riddle and in turn, escape. While we can’t tell you exactly how you escape, we can tell you that your logic, intuition and team-working skills will all be tested.
Designed for groups of 2-5 people, this secret hub in the heart of the City has 10 rooms covering ‘Murder in the Bedroom’, ‘Kidnapping in the Living Room’ and ‘Theft in the Laboratory’. You’ll take notes, piece together the story and with a bit of luck, nail the slippery creep that committed the crime.
Come, Watson, come! The game is afoot.
The private rooms are available for 2-5 players, ranging from £24-£29pp depending on the size of your group. The Escape Hunt Experience is located at George Yard, City of London, EC3V 9DH.
