Meanwhile, as an example of the sort of things I’ve been up to, here is a photo of Team Parrot that successfully escaped The Forger’s Room at Code to Exit in Altrincham.
Without want to give too much away, we were locked in a room full of works of art created by the forger but one of them was the genuine masterpiece and we had one hour to work out which one it was by solving puzzles, opening locks and cracking codes. We made it out with twelve minutes to spare although we did need a few hints that come up on a tv screen when the going gets tough.
We previously tried and failed to escape The Blueprint Room mainly because we didn’t ask for hints until we were down to our last three minutes which wasn’t enough time to crack the last puzzle but it was still great fun. The rooms are really well put together and perfect for a family outing. Next on our list is the Dark Ages Room which I gather has more physical than mental challenges.
There are breakout rooms all over the country and if they are all as good as those in Altrincham then I really recommend them for a bit of fun.
