1: The Crystal Maze Live Experience

  Entry Price: £65 per head

The crystal maze has made it to our top ten escape rooms in London because of its loaded fun. It was almost a forgotten TV show until some brilliant group of people brought it back to life. 

The price to get into the action is quite expensive, but not something you can measure with the excitement in it. The escape room is now packed with mysterious tasks from the Aztec, Industrial, Futuristic, and Eastern zone. 

You get to choose your team of eight people for the mental and mystery trap challenges. Pick a team leader; someone wise enough to decide who plays each game. The players tackle and solve the tasks and trials to earn the team a time crystal for an extra 5 seconds in the Giant Crystal finale. In the 5-men celebrity adventurer game, each teammate must prove that they can work together as one to ensure that none of them run out of time to waste their amount of crystals.

There is a big and strong crystal that can contain eight adults in it. This is where they play for a double worth of time from the other crystals. This can only be played once, so be ready not to waste your chance for precious playtime.

Customer's comment
"Whilst not cheap (£65 pp) and not something most people could not afford to do that often, you do have to give credit to the team behind this, their enthusiasm and recreation of the sets. Our team had a blast and you can also remember your time in the maze with your very own crystal to take home (available to buy in the gift shop). Now if they could only also recreate a 'Finders Keepers' live experience..."

Customer’s comment
“Me, my girlfriend and another couple decided to play the prison room. It was the first I did and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It was actually very well-thought of and the puzzles were challenging requiring a lot of thinking and teamwork. Our 'helper' Tito was very friendly, told the story in a fun way and whenever we asked for clues he just gave us enough to go on to the next puzzles. Overall an excellent game, a great team-building activity and a lovely way to stretch those problem-solving muscles!”
