It’s been a while since I have done an escape room and boy, was this one from the amazing people at Fox in a Box did not disappoint.
Fox in a Box, a newbie to the world of escape room, started in Dalston east London, earlier this year with franchise all over the world so if you see him popping up everywhere, then he isn’t following you 😉.
They currently have three rooms in Dalston, Prison Break, Zombie killer and Bunker.
I was kindly invited to play their Prison Break room with a group of Love Pop Ups London to beat the clock and try and escape before the guard returns to resolve the riots, and to ensure our life sentences was served.
The story of the game is that you have committed a crime and you have been sentenced to life in prison and the only way out is for you to escape!
As we were a group of ten, we played the prison break head to head where we were not only against clock, but to escape before the other team, a great way if you have a big group to and try not to end up on the wall of shame….
The room was well designed, with all the tools you need to work together to break yourselves free, strong communication and team working is a must!
There was kryptic clues, locks, and map work and physical task to really test out all your clue solving skills. So lots of things for everyone to get involved in.
Our team managed to escape with only two clues and 39:35 on the clock just beating our other team by nearly 15 minutes and avoided being posted up on the wall of shame! Well done team.
A great game and definitely recommend this, thanks to our games master Shola, you were great!
I have heard that that for the horror fanatics they have the zombie game which has made grown men cry….. Are you brave enough to try their rooms??
