From Our Editors

Escape Live features a range of themed rooms which groups are challenged to escape from. Participants need to work together complete a mass of puzzles and mysteries before the one-hour deadline runs out. The Essex branch includes Dr Wilson's office, a classic Victorian puzzle, and Room 13, a modern mystery not suitable for the faint-hearted.

WELL ORGANISED AND EXPLAINED & VERY PLEASANT. THOROUGHLY ENJOYED THE EVENT (ESPECIALLY AS WE GOT OUT WITH 4 MINUTES TO SPARE)! WILL BE BACK TO DO THE OTHER ROOM SOON. RECOMMENDED.

Escape live was a great experience, like nothing I've ever done before. My whole family enjoyed it - it was very well thought out and the staff were knowledgeable and helpful. Have booked to go back and do the other room!

What a great venue for a bit of team thinking. Was a real challenge but an absolute laugh.

This was an excellent experience, perfectly pitched so as not to be either too easy or too hard. The hints and tips (when we asked) were great, and were riddles themselves, adding to the puzzle play. Overall this was an entertaining, fun, exciting experience, made better by the friendliness and helpfulness of their staff. We will definitely be back, and can't recommend it highly enough. Thanks!

We had great fun at Escape Live. It met all of our expectations: the puzzles were challenging and varied, the story and atmosphere drew you in and everything came together satisfyingly at the end. I can't say much more without spoiling it! We did the more difficult room and although we made a swift start, some of the puzzles in the middle caught us out - there is definitely enough in there to keep you busy for an hour! We would consider ourselves to be four intelligent adults, however we had to ask for clues in the end as to not run out of time! We enjoyed it so much that we have booked to go back again already and try out the second room. We have recommended EL to many family member and friends and hope that in the future they will change the current challenges to new ones so that we can return a third, fourth and fifth time. Our only criticism was the directional lock. They should either show you exactly how to use it before you enter, give picture instructions or change it altogether. We had the right combination to open it,but lost 5-10 minutes of gameplay as it was fiddly and difficult to open. They were able to talk us through on the walky talky and get it open, however we didn't ask straight away as we were trying our best to complete as much as possible without help. Even so, we had a brilliant time and can't wait to return! Escape Live in Southend is in a great location, close to lots of restaurants too (pretty much opposite Mangetout) so it makes for a great afternoon or evening.
