Escape Hunt Manchester Cowboys Vs Pirates: Wild West & Blackbeard’s Treasure Escape Rooms – Review

Escape Hunt Manchester Cowboys Vs Pirates: Wild West & Blackbeard’s Treasure – Review: February 2019

Exciting Escape Hunt Manchester, located in Manchester city centre, is where all the action takes place.  Cowboy or Pirate, you decide and prepare for a wild west ride or swash buckling adventure.

I am sure you will be warmly welcomed by the team, just like on our arrival, and their game masters are awesome.

Howdy partners, the wild west tiny frontier town of East Victoria, has struck gold, so celebrations throughout town are rife.

Not everything that glistens is gold though, as with this news, the bloodthirsty Bill French Gang are riding their way into town to claim the gold and kill everyone in East Victoria.

With the Sheriff out of town, our only hope is to load the gold and residents into a rusty old locomotive, that hasn’t worked for years, get this going and you escape with your lives and get the Gold & the Glory yee-ha, fail and prepare for a Plastic Pistol shoot-down with the Bill French gang who will take no mercy, so make sure you lasso your way to victory.

From the wild land to the high seas, swagger onto the plunging pirate galleon, mid-way through a battle, as the terrifying Captain Blackbeard has just been killed.

Ship shot to bits and sinking fast, you must take control.  Arr me hearties, grab the crew as it’s all hands-off deck, lets jump ship, of course not before grabbing a hand full of gold pieces from Blackbeard’s legendary treasure chest.

Gold in hand, but the cabin door jammed shut and with just 60 minutes to escape, here’s me hoping…we managed to escape, as knowing full well the sharks don’t grant no parley and we didn’t fancy becoming their feed.

We looted the bootie, so it’s a pirates life for us, what about you?

Thank you for reading 😊

The Crystal Maze Live Experience Manchester Review

The Crystal Maze Live Experience Manchester review: September 2018

Whether you go in solo or already have your squad worked out, The Crystal Maze Live Experience Manchester, located smack bang in Manchester city centre, right next to the Museum of Science and Industry, is where eight individuals become one team to conquer the crystal dome.

Based on the 90s Iconic series, with the original legendary Maze Master Richard O’Brien and his ever loving marvellous mumsie, The Crystal Maze Live Experience Manchester, offers participants a unique opportunity to grab their very own slice of this nostalgic era.

Warmly welcomed with energy and enthusiasm, by the Crystal Maze team, we were geared up and all ready to go, go, go!  We have been lucky enough to attend on several invites, with the first visit being thrown in with a group of strangers and our most recent experience a private session for two.

After the health and safety stuff has had the big thumbs up, you will be all pumped up and ready for a crazy crystal collection mission, you and your star team, get to pop on the brilliant bomber jackets, to take those ‘must have’ insta pics.

Then, prepare to hit the team booths to talk team captains, names, tactics and strategy.  Don’t under estimate booth team time, if you want your crystal count to soar, listen to all your team members.  The four game types include Mental, Mystery, physical and Skill, so play to your team strengths, so you can scoop as many crystals as you can.

Being team captain in a private session was easy, as I knew our strengths and played to our advantage, but our first mixed session made up of several guys and gals, they key is to listen, learn and become one.

Feel those motivation moments and get the cheesy slogans at the ready “one team one dream”, “there’s no I in the word team” and prepare to meet your marvellous maze master, who on all my visits have been top notch, as they fabulously and flawlessly present with natural flare and finesse, resulting in non-robotic maze masters, and not losing their personality within the process.

You and your squad need to be prepared for a journey through four zones, Medieval, Industrial, Aztec and Futuristic, and yes for the mega super fans you do get to slide your way down the iconic slide in Aztec – one of my personal fav zones…apart from the Dome!

On arrival, Nichol our games master, an all-round lovely lass prepped our team of two for play.  The core objective, 60 minutes to escape, by cracking a range of challenging puzzles using our mega brains, with the help of our games master and a nifty iPad which enables your team to unlock clues every 10 minutes throughout your challenge, but be warned you can only use this 5 times so use wisely.
