Bitten by the Escape Room Bug: My First Experience in Gr8Escape York's Space Cadet Room 🔐

A friend suggested we do an escape room, which was something of an unknown phenomenon to all of us first-timers. As we all used to live in York, off to Gr8Escape we went!

 

Story

We had to find 6 Regeneration Orbs to restart our spacecraft's engine to avoid being sucked into a black hole, as is to be expected of a space-themed room! The task of finding pieces of technical equipment to repair a spaceship was an apt goal and kept us aware of our progress.

Puzzles

An engaging mix of physical and mental puzzles: they weren’t really linear, and so we were free to break off into smaller groups to do some simultaneous solving.

Mise-en-scène

As this was my first time, the décor and scenery weren’t things I focused on. However, on reflection, it definitely didn’t come across as a shuttle or rocket’s engine room or whatever. I’d say it was more like a child’s bedroom.

Final Comments

This was a fun, hands-on, habit-forming first escape experience perfect for a larger team!
