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