Join us in Leeds for some weekend afternoon drinks, with an escape room thrown in too.
The Great Escape Game, Leeds, 14:00, Saturday 13th October 2018
Escape rooms are a Young Mensa favourite - if you've never tried one before, we will voluntarily be locked up together in a room and then we need to complete challenges in order to escape within a time limit.
We'll be heading to The Great Escape Game to take on King Arthur's Secret.
Know this brave knight, man’s darkest hour is upon us. Following King Arthur’s death, the banner which held the United Kingdoms together has all but vanished. Houses of the North, South, East and West battle in a constant struggle for power, causing a reckless destruction of everything we hold dear. The North is set to storm the capital, beginning what only can be imagined as centuries of needless war and devastation.
However, there is just one glimmer of hope. To find a new King of England and reunite the seven kingdoms under one true leader. Legends speak of secret chambers built into King Arthur’s Castle, riddled with mysteries and guarded by Merlin’s magic. It is said that when the time comes to pass, the secrets of King Arthur’s castle will only speak to the worthy, the one who has what it takes to become the King of England.
This is where your journey begins, brave knight. Here, deep in the heart of King Arthur’s castle…
Can you evade Merlin’s magic, unravel the mystery and unearth King Arthur’s secret?
How to register
There are limited places available so if you’d like to come please email me at email@example.com or message me on Facebook or Telegram, then we'll arrange payment via Paypal or bank transfer. The price is £18 per person.
We’ll meet from 14:00 in the Manahatta on Greek Street – this is only a few minutes’ walk from the train station and conveniently located just across the road from the escape room - then head to the venue for 15:00 to ensure a prompt start. You're welcome to join us for drinks without participating in the escape room, too.
If we manage to escape, we’ll head for more drinks and probably some food. Keep an eye on the Facebook event or our Telegram group, or get in touch to find out where we are.
The Great Escape Game is on King Street, a few minutes' walk from Leeds station. If you're driving, there are a number of car parks nearby which can be cheap at weekends.
