On Thursday 10th May the #covhour team were kindly invited to take part in our very first Escape Room at Escape Live based in Coventry, Fargo Village.
So, what exactly is an Escape Room?
Working in a team of between two and six people, you will have just 60 minutes to escape from a locked room before it is too late. With the clock ticking, there is no time to argue. Everyone must work together to find the clues and solve the puzzles so you all make your way out in time.
On arrival we were met by the very bubbly Pippa who informed us that she would be our games master. Pippa gave us a quick rundown of what to expect and made us feel very welcome. After a quick trip to the toilet (anyone who knows Emma knows she always needs the loo before she does anything, especially before being locked in a room for an hour!) we were locked into our room.
We were in the room called Casino Heist. As the saying goes ‘what goes on in the escape room stays in the escape room’. We wouldn’t like to ruin the game for everyone but needless to say there was much fun and bewilderment had within those 4 walls!
Our biggest fear was that we would miss #Covhour. We are pleased to say that we managed to escape with 4 minutes to spare and with $140,000 in cold hard cash and we made it in time for some tweeting.
We would all highly recommend Escape Live. If you are looking for something a little bit different for a night out or a great team building exercise. We all certainly plan to go back again and try a different room.
If you would like the #covhour team to review your restaurant or attraction just get in touch with Jo.
