Don’t Get Locked In, Leighton Buzzard
Like a challenge? Team up with your friends, family or workmates to see if you’ve got what it takes to work together to complete a set of puzzles and escape before the time’s up. Bring it on!
Remember watching The Crystal Maze on telly? If you fancied yourself as a bit of a sure thing to beat the clock to win those coveted crystals, you’re gonna love this… Don’t Get Locked In offers two different escape room challenges that you and a group of friends, family or workmates can actually take part in yourselves.
In your teams (of 2-6 people) you’ll need to work together to solve the puzzles and escape the ‘Room’ within the 60 minutes allowed, so every second counts! And if you don’t complete it? Well, the clue’s in the name, if you catch our drift!
There are two different escape rooms to try: The Secret Hut, which transports players back to the codebreaking centre of Bletchley, during WWII, where they must find the top secret plans detailing the next enemy attack, before it’s too late; and The Rock, where team members will be challenged to escape from the famous (and very secure!) San Francisco island prison, where they’ll find themselves amongst some of the most fearsome criminals alive.
And if you’re up for a bit of friendly competition, you can split into two groups (one in each room) and battle against each other to escape in the fastest time. Parents Vs. kids perhaps?! On that note, children from age 8 can take part in The Secret Hut, but it’s best for those aged 12+ as they’ll be able to really get stuck into the challenges. For The Rock, kids must be 13 though, as it’s a bit more scary!
It sounds like fab fun for families and friends with a competitive streak, or a team building exercise with a difference for you and a group of workmates. So all that remains to be said is… will you accept the challenge?
