Dapper green-haired guide Gabriel led our team behind the scenes at the Black Lion, holographic skulls gleaming on his dark glasses. This “immersive escape room” allows a team of between two and six people to enter a mysterious room with 60 minutes to solve a series of Crystal Maze-style puzzles in the hope of winning a bottle of Lady Chastity’s infamous aphrodisiac wine. Props, lighting and sound effects create an ominous Victorian atmosphere with a saucy sub-plot. Red herrings abounded, but Gabriel was always available to offer hints. This exciting challenge is a terrific and unique group activity: highly recommended!
