Where do I even begin to describe Escape Reality? I was completely unsure of what to expect when I was invited to try it out. But upon looking at the website it was apparent that there were multiple themes from a Jumanji-style adventure to a sh*t your pants scary Saw experience.
I had recently watched Whitechapel during some much needed procrastination while I supposed to be studying so I was beyond excited to be transported back to Victorian London to solve some murders. We decided to call our team the ‘Goff Detectives’ & I feel that I’m pulling that look off rather terribly.
With a group of six, we navigated the rooms & solved mysteries. Thankfully we managed to escape within the 1 hour time slot with 9 minutes to spare! It was really high intensity but so fun that the time flew in! Without giving away any of the secrets of the room, we managed to break codes & find secret messages. All, in very suave detective style of course.
Overall, Escape Reality proved to be a completely different experience to anything I’ve ever had before & I’m surprised there was no fall outs or tantrums, just a really fun night! However, we did find out that the Alcatraz themed room has nearly caused divorces… Maybe won’t be inviting the boyfriend along with me next time! Our team enjoyed a glass or five of prosseco upon entering & managed to escape so it’s perfect for a night out or if you’re feeling competitive, leave out the beverages & aim for the high score!
P.S. We’re 100% going back to try the Saw room, I’m a mega wimp but it needs to be done!
& a massive thank you to Escape Reality for having me!
