I went along to this escape game experience with my work colleagues. It was such a good night, although we did find it quite difficult! I would definitely go again with my friends as I had such a good time. Highly recommend!
Escape games are so much fun! This one was just the right level of difficulty so we completed it with about thirty seconds to spare... Definitely recommend.
Something different but found it a little difficult. Some of the clues were more luck than judgement which seems to miss the point a little. Still fun but would be better if all of the clues were something that could be worked out rather than guessed.
We recently had the amazing opportunity to take part in Brighton’s only Escape Game! Escape Games are becoming popular activities for groups all over the world and we felt especially lucky to have the opportunity to experience this one right in the heart of Brighton. We have tried our best to not give any clues away, so read on for more details on this incredible experience!
Being Brighton’s only Escape Game we were very excited to be taking part. The theme of Brighton’s escape room is based on the infamous ‘Brighton Trunk Murders’ in 1934 – which were never actually solved!
Arriving at the Escape Game location, the escape room was situated in the basement of a traditional Brighton townhouse. We were very apprehensive about what this evening had in store, although in some ways not knowing added that extra thrill! We were warmly greeted when we arrived and were given the aim of the game plus any restrictions, before being shown to the room that would become our prison for the next hour.
The room was decorated in the authentic style of the 1930’s with props such as briefcases, teapots, maps and books scattered around for added atmosphere. A video clip was projected onto the wall which displayed a short video of the case to solve. We were then locked in the room to begin the game, although we were reassured that we could ask for clues if we got stuck, using the walkie-talkie in the corner.
The aim is to solve the murder in 60 minutes, with a bonus game of guessing the murder weapon at the end! We began by scanning the room for any clues we could use to kick off the investigation. Searching through draws, cupboards and books, it was harder than it seemed to find clues.
The clock was ticking and we were almost half way through – without having found enough clues to solve the mystery, the nerves definitely started to kick in! Luckily enough, Richard was there to help us out by giving some hints to help us find the all-important clues.
At the 57 minute mark… We solved the mystery! Unfortunately that left us with only 3 minutes to find the murder weapon, and so we fell at the final hurdle. That didn’t take away our sense of achievement though, as it’s definitely more difficult than we initially thought.
This 1 hour murder mystery was an incredible experience, it really let us live out our inner detective, whilst putting our combined intuition to the test! If you would like the opportunity to take on the task of solving the Brighton trunk murders, grab yourself a gift voucher.
We recently had the pleasure of meeting Will, the owner of Brighton’s very own first-of-its-kind Escape game. These types of games are gaining popularity fast in the UK, providing fun and unique ways to spend time with friends, bond as a family, or complete some team-building with colleagues. We were lucky enough to secure an interview with Will who owns Brighton’s first escape game! Here’s how it went:
Hi Will, Great to meet you!
