Escape the dull routine

Locked in a room, with seventy minutes to work out the puzzles and escape. Sound like fun? Well, let me tell you, it is!
I had intended to book the Harry Potter game for my 11 year old and his friends, but due to numbers, we had to book a different theme, and opted for Tomb Raider, which is aimed at teens and adults. The content is appropriate but the difficulty of puzzles was a little more demanding than that of the average eleven year old's attention span. It was interesting that some would give up quite easily, but a few really shone and were determined to work out the clues without help.

The game was seventy minutes long, and we used every second to work our way out. There are secret doors, locked cupboards and chests and clues to decipher. It's a game that you solve puzzles both mentally and physically, so great for kids and teens, as well as adults.
I enjoyed it so much, I want to go back and do a different theme, this time with adults. You should be warned, it is slightly addictive.
If you are taking children under 15, and adult needs to be with them. For younger children, the Harry Potter theme would be best, but the 11 year olds all enjoyed the Tomb Raider game, and were chattering excitedly as they debriefed what happened in the car on the way home.
Head to the website to book online and then start an adventure that will leave you grinning as you escape from your everyday life.
