Put your mental skills to the test and beat the clock with this Live Escape Game for Two experience.
This puzzle-based game is a new form of entertainment, and the concept is simple - Working in a team of between two and seven people, you have just 60 minutes to escape from a locked room before it’s too late! With the clock ticking, there is no time to waste. Everyone must work together to find the clues, solve the puzzles, grab the key and escape from the room.
Once locked inside the room, you will both receive hints and clues to point you in the right direction and solve the various puzzles. The clues vary in difficulty with some being straight forward and easy to solve, whilst others can tax even the most seasoned of puzzle-solving minds.
There is help at hand via a quiz master, but they are not in the room with you and can only communicate via a walkie-talkie device. If you successfully make your way through puzzle after puzzle, you will receive the password for the safe where the key is located.
You will have a choice of one from three different rooms to complete; The Triads, The Red Curse or The Double Crossing. Each reflects a theme or story and has its own set of unique puzzles.
Under intense pressure and racing against the clock, will you be able to solve the puzzles and escape the room?

What did you get up to?
I arrived in London Liverpool Street and it was a simple one stop on the underground and a 5 minute walk to the door. I was greeted by an enthusiastic member of staff who informed me the theme of the Escape Room was ‘Spy Heroes’. Once we were ready to get going the member of staff stepped convincingly into character and explained the background to the task – we’re undercover, our agent friend has gone missing and we need to save him. The final word of advice before entering the room was to touch everything as nothing is as it first appears.
It was great fun, the game has a medium difficulty rating which in my option is a good indicator. The four of us definitely had to work as a team, pulling on individual’s problem solving skills, you needed to think laterally to solve the clues. The experience lasted for an hour.
What did you enjoy the most?
Without giving too much away I would certainly recommend this escape room experience and would consider the other rooms on offer at this location. I’m always on the lookout for new thing to do with my teenage family/adult friends and this experience and location was ideal.
Work as a team and listen to every clue over the speaker system.
