clueQuest’s Revenge of the Sheep Review & Giveaway!

There’s always something going on in London – whether it’s a new restaurant opening, or an art exhibition – it’s what makes it so great to live here.

Which is why I absolutely love the Escape Room trend going on at the moment. I’ve tried a couple in London now, and always have such a blast – as a massive fan of mystery/thriller films, the thought of having to get myself out of a room by following clues is more than a little exciting.

clueQuest - Islandbell ReviewFor those of you who don’t know what an escape room experience entails, it involves being shut in a mysterious room for an hour – and having to make your way out before the clock ends by figuring out the clues. No phones, no 50/50 – just yourself (and your teammates, of course!)

DSC06903clueQuest1clueQuest - Islandbell ReviewNow I don’t want to give too much away (that will totally spoil the fun!) but the challenge we did, The Revenge of the Sheep, revolves around you working to save the world from the evil Professor Blacksheep and his SheepMutator. It’s by far the most high-tech escape room I’ve done so far, and is such a fun way to spend an evening!

It’s also a great way to break the ice with people you don’t know particularly well – you can be sure there won’t be any awkward silences when you’re racing against the clock. I’d met most of the girls from events before, but you learn a lot about a person when you’re stuck in a room with them for an hour (like the fact that Jasiminne eats Heinz soup for breakfast!)

    Omg how fun does this look! I have to agree aside from eating and drinking what is there to do, haha. But glad there are activities like this around!

    • Thanks Lima! Its so easy to get stuck for things to do and get inspired sometimes, and this is such a great alternative! xx

  • I haven’t tried any of these yet but it sounds like such great fun. I’m hopeless with cryptic clues so would probably be in there for ages!

  • Oh this does look like a lot of fun but annoyingly one of those things I probably wouldn’t enjoy that much myself!
