Our Sheffield team grabbed January by the horns…literally! The Devil’s Playground room was so successful in Leeds that it has been released in our Sheffield Generation 2 site. To celebrate this, there’s also been a new trailer made! You can watch it here.

January was all about spreading awareness and developing our business skills. Our Directors Hannah and Peter featured in The Telegraph, Exposed and The Star (amongst others). Using their platform to showcase our new escape rooms and their business journey thus far. Ninja Heather also got the chance to go to Sheffield Generation’s Conference, where she was able to listen to other entrepreneurs and gain invaluable insights.

We also had an inter site trip to find our inner Total Ninja. Staff members from all three sites found themselves in Manchester; running into walls, jumping from ledges and in a heap in the foam pit! We rounded the night off, the only way we know how to! Safe to say everyone was aching the week after.

Social media highlights included the adventures of Bonnie in Leeds and the ‘dad dancing’ in Sheffield! Not to mention Hannah’s infectious laugh as we celebrated her birthday.

That’s all for our January round up, keep your eyes peeled for some very special announcements in February! Can’t wait to see you all for some half term/Valentine’s escapes!

The month of joy, festivity and fun, but for most people, also one of the busiest months of the year. It’s been no different for us here at The Great Escape Game. We’ve been host to a whole range of activities and events which have kept us busy from the first until the last – and it doesn’t show signs of stopping.

First of all, the Christmas season has kept us all on our toes as we welcomed hundreds of festive revellers for their Christmas parties. Here at The Great Escape Game, our fabulous drinks offers, cocktails and festive feasts have satiated even the biggest of Scrooge’s. And of course, our escape rooms have ensured that parties don’t get too comfortable – with plenty of totally immersive and thrilling escape games.

December also saw the launch of two new escape rooms; Alcatraz 2.0 and Homicide 2.0. Following the incredible success of the original games, Alcatraz and Homicide were entirely revamped and refreshed, making them wholly playable for new customers and replayable for returning players. This relaunch right before Christmas saw The Great Escape Game reach its busiest period with a huge number of happy customers.

The Great Escape Game then took a trip to the Sheffield Business Awards, where the company was shortlisted in the category of Best Contribution to Sheffield Visitor Experience. Directors Hannah Duraid and Peter Lecole, Marketing Manager Krissie Akrill and Sales Executive Lauren Greaves got all dressed up and spent the evening in Ponds Forge, Sheffield, to celebrate the successes of local businesses.

Something which has been ongoing behind the scenes but finally came to fruition this December is the launch of our brand new website. Our new and improved site is sleeker, smoother and much more user friendly. Be sure to have a browse and take full advantage of brand spanking new snazzy interface.

All of the above leads us only to one thing… 2018. In January, we have plenty going on to prevent those pesky January blues from setting in. Just one of the exciting events coming up is the launch of The Devil’s Playground – the hit game from The Great Escape Game’s Leeds venue is coming to Sheffield Generation 2. Keep your eyes peeled for more updates on the launch and make sure you don’t miss out!

That’s about it for our December review from us here at The Great Escape Game. We have been as busy as ever and can’t wait for the New Year and all it will bring! We hope you’ve had a great festive period and remember to keep escaping!

Pop princesses Little Mix took time out from their Glory Days Tour to experience Leeds’ Great Escape Game while in the city for their sold-out show tonight.

The girl group – who shot to fame after winning the X Factor in 2011 – paid a visit to the escape game, on King Street, on Sunday afternoon to solve its Crystal Maze-style puzzles. Leigh-Anne Pinnock, Perrie Edwards, Jade Thirlwall and Jesy Nelson were given 50 minutes to break out of three escape games; Underworld Conspiracy, Submerged and Abducted while trying to solve a series of intricate puzzles.

Director Hannah Duraid said: “It was a pleasure to see Little Mix enjoy the highest level of immersive experience, and spend their day being transported away from the reality of day to day life and into worlds of adventure.” The Great Escape Game in Leeds has six, multi-faceted escape rooms plus a fully licensed bar, kitchen and private event area.
