Legend has it that the ‘Amulet of Anubis’ was a mysterious charm in the shape of an Ankh which had the power to bestow eternal life on any mortal who possessed it during their lifetime. Its origins have been lost in the sands of time but it is recorded that many wars were fought over this elusive object; men battled each other as their wish to possess the power of the Ankh corrupted and consumed them.
Rumour has it that just when it looked like all was to be lost, a local lad stumbled across the item and in a final bid to bring peace to the land he resisted the temptation to keep it for himself and hid it amongst the thousands of valuable objects in the King's treasury. If this legend is to be believed then the Amulet of Anubis may have ended up within the tomb of the Great King Esk; hoping your research will prove correct, you and your team of Egyptologists have spent many years searching for the location of the mysterious tomb.
While on an archaeological dig in Thebes, you have uncovered an ancient text – and, after much work deciphering the text, you have finally discovered where the elusive tomb has lain undiscovered for 3000 years! However, further inspection of the writings reveals that a curse lies upon the tomb - whoever dares to disturb the sacred space will activate the charm and awaken the mummy!
Can you enter the tomb, retrieve the relic and escape? You have one hour before the mummy awakens and brings any stragglers back with him to the underworld…
Book The Locked Door's trickiest escape game today!
*RAIDERS is set within an Egyptian tomb - it is not horror based but there are elements that may be scary for children.

This room's main strength was its theme. Loved the inclusion of real sand, the props, and a lot of the builds in the room. It kept up a brisk pace and was generally entertaining. We managed at quite a relaxed pace as a group of two. Would probably be great for groups with kids.

Had a lot of fun, but the room itself wasn’t terribly original. A couple of puzzles I’d seen before, and I expected a bit less number locks considering the theme. It’s branded as their hardest room but I wouldn’t call it very hard, just a lot to do if you’re a small team.  

I AM a sucker for any room that lets you wear on-theme props while you play though, and there’s real sand! So an extra half star is for sand. Love sand. 

GM was lovely!
