It’s nearly time… And don’t we know it?

Here’s what our friends at Cambridge Edition had to say about us this week.

Life a little dull? Your 12-year-old needs a bit of stimulation away from their iPad? Want to release your inner superhero? Well then, it’s time to go on a thrill ride to wake up the senses, with a new place to go in Cambridge that’s sure to be (quite possibly literally) a hit!

Lockhouse Games brings escape games to the city, and from Thursday 25 May, they will be open 9am to 10pm, Monday to Saturday to invigorate, excite and challenge you.

Offering three escape games – Armageddon, Secret Agent and Egyptian Tomb – players in teams of up to five have up to one hour to search the rooms for clues and solve puzzles before time runs out.

The venue also has virtual reality games, a board games lounge and a magical market stall at its Regent Street site.

Owner Paul Chapman explains: “I played my first escape room game in Amsterdam a few years ago and I was soon hooked. It’s quite addictive and no two games are the same. Some puzzles are logical, some lateral, some involve spatial awareness and some are downright fiendish.

“The team element is the most interesting part. I’ve seen teams involving three generations of family members do really well, teams of very smart people do not so well and many people have lots of unexpected fun.”
