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 😊

Freedom Japanese Market Review: June 2017
A family saw a gap in the market, when their friends who had moved away from Japan could not find the same high quality of Japanese snacks in their own country. During a family holiday in the U.S, they noticed that the international stores stocked snacks, but they were either dangerously close to their sell by dates or not even of Japanese origin. With this in mind, the family went away and set up family run Freedom Japanese Market, with a determined mission to deliver quality Japanese to the world.
