Manchester Junk Yard Golf Club Review

Manchester Junk Yard Golf Club Review: April 2018

Rumours are flying around, that Crazy golf just got epic, and I can confirm it’s all true! Get your game face ready, as things are in full swing down at the super cool Junk Yard Golf site slap bang on first street Manchester.

Before play, fuel up like we did, and enjoy a beer or a mocktail decked to the rafters with sweet treats and an umbrella to boot.  Jump into the golf buggy, gear up to the golf range, ready for some Grand Slam play…well not quite, but a game on the 9 hole Bozo and Gary courses for sure.

Rock up like a pro, with your very own cool Junk Yard golf visor caps, this was guy Vs girl so we went with Blue & red, and turned things on their head; blue for the girl and red for the guy.

Junk Yard Golf B

Welcomed on course Gary, golf club in hand ready to swing into action and get on it like a car bonnet.  Yes, there is a slide, and yes you can actually slide down it too!  Party people, this is the place to be with UV Lights, loud music and flashing lights, while you get funky on the golf course and strut your stuff.

Shell off those inhibitions, scrap those doubts and let’s make this a hitter.  Drive into the garage, confident that your game is on form, swaying that shot and steer that ball into the hole.

The Bang on Bozo course, goes carnival crazy, and takes you to the dark side.  Your game above or below par…well for me it was time to get dodgy, shut this game off and shatter my opponent’s dreams, bring on my waggle, as the winner takes it all.

No clowning around and don’t let this course be the death of you, hook that ball and aim for the glory moment – a hole in one. This was such a super informal activity which was interactive, immersive, and so much fun.  All the staff were awesome, in particular Georgina, who was a super star.  Would I go again, well that is a fore-gone conclusion!

Breakout Manchester High Street Most Wanted

Breakout Manchester High Street Most Wanted: January 2018

Located in the cool, quirky, eclectic northern quarter hub is the brilliant Breakout Manchester.  Prepare to motivate your mind to find clues and solve a serious of puzzles, to unlock padlocks.  Do you accept the challenge, can you Breakout, can you escape?

Howdy partners, us cowboys rode up to the wild west aka Manchester Breakout for a show down like no other.  We entered the Saloon bar, not to wet our whistle or hoe down to the sound of the piano keys, but in search of the loot – Yee-ha!  However, we got to get a skedaddle on, things just got wild, as there is a new sheriff in town who recognised my partner and I from our wanted posters.

A shoot out signalled that the 60-minute countdown had begun in this duel room game with twists and turns around every corner.  Milly our third partner in crime and our brilliant Breakout game master guided us bounty hunters through the wild west to try and aid our escape, so she too could take her cut of the riches.

Take a gamble and collect as many poker chips, as possible for a chance to gain a place on the coveted “Most Wanted” leader board, but be warned this is a secondary task, so don’t let this distract you from getting that darn loot and escaping.

Our horses were watered and waiting, ready to giddy up and ride off into the sunset, but alas the jig was up and our game had been sussed, so ya’ll better go before the Sheriff throws you in this cell with us, as Breakout Manchester’s Most Wanted!

Ride on up to play Breakout Manchester’s Most Wanted game to see if you can conquer the Wild West, take home the loot and gain a prized place on the coveted “Most Wanted” leader board.

Thank you for reading 😊

Breakout Room Manchester High Street Review

Breakout Room Manchester High Street Review: October 2017

Located in the quirky, eclectic northern quarter hub lies a quizzical challenge, that will get your blood pumping, heart racing and test your mind to the max.  Number 36 an eerie black door set the atmosphere and tone for a gaming adventure. The lovely Liv our game master provided an enthusiastic introduction and set the scene for the ‘Vacancy’ room we were about to enter.

We checked into Breakout High Street, and prepared ourselves for a stay like no other. Exhausted and energies low after a long journey, the Crimson Lake Motel provided shelter from the rain and some basic comfort for the night to recharge our batteries. How bad can it be right, just for one night? However, things soon take a worryingly frightful turn, as all doors are locked and there appears to be no immediate way of escape.

We had 60 minutes, to work in our team through a maze of mental mind challenges, clues, puzzles and locks, to escape or except our fate. Communications and clues are displayed through a TV and this game also has a mic where Liv could hear our every word – eek no pressure then! Just keep calm and carry on…This unique immersive, entertaining and electrifying experience has twists and turns around every corner.  No spoilers, but this is not a single room game – exciting stuff!

Close, oh so close…we nearly broke out! Welcome to the Crimson Lake Motel. You check in, but you NEVER check out…Check to see if they have any vacancies for a Manchester stay you will never forget.

Thank you for reading 😊
