Escape Hunt Manchester Samurai Vs Viking: The Fourth Samurai and The Last Vikings Escape Rooms – Review

Escape Hunt Manchester Samurai Vs Viking: The Fourth Samurai and The Last Vikings Escape Rooms – Review

Get your game on at Escape Hunt Manchester city centre and prepare to become a super Samurai or victorious Viking.

Go back in time to ancient Japan, and prepare to defeat the evil warlord Tanaka Masamune, by order of the imperial emperor.

Protected by an all-powerful curse, Tanaka is no easy feat, steal his mysterious and magic stone from his sword and escape the dungeon to be victorious.

Prepare yourself warriors, as this is not all about physical strength, to win freedom, your mind must be sharper than the sword.

Channel your inner Viking, as your clan sits without protection and prepare for the onslaught from the Ice Giants.  Your only saviour is the Norse Gods, you need their help before it’s too late.

A long journey leads you to the Gods banqueting hall, but on entry your stomach sinks, as the Gods are off site on other God duties.

Desperation kicks in, as you only have one hour to summon the Gods, seek their protection, before the Ice Giants destroy your village.

Be bold, brave and a bountiful victory will be yours when you return to the village

Thank you for reading 😊

The amazingness continues with their range of sauces and garnishes using authentic ingredients such as their beautiful blushing Datterini tomatoes from Sicily or the classic pesto di pistacchi, a take on the classic Ligurian sauce using pistachios grown in the Sicilian sun.

The Vegetarian Feasting Box, a fab kit with information cards, did not disappoint, including super scrumptious dishes such as the fabulous Fusilloni with spicy Arrabbiata sauce, parmesan & fresh Basil.  Also, the tasty ‘Tricolore’ Tortelloni with tomato, mozzarella & Basil with sage butter and parmesan.  Finally, the gorgeous giant pesto-filled gnocchi with cherry tomato sauce and parmesan.

Also, no need to even provide you with step by step instructions, as it was super simple and easy to do with excellent results.

Got some pasta inspiration why not opt for one of their stunning Pasta making kits, well why not whip up a Pasta swirl in the kitchen too.

Making gnocchi and ravioli was a real joy, as top quality wonderful wooden tools had been provided.

The kit would make an ideal mothers day gift or perfect for a cosy and cute date night in.

Combing ingredients sourced from Italy along with lovingly handcrafting each piece of pasta at their London location, it’s easy to see why the team have achieved pasta perfection.
