Love logical puzzles, extreme time pressure and being terrified out of your mind? This is quite possibly your perfect night out. 

A new escape room is opening in London later this month at House of Detention, which was formerly a Victorian prison. Brave participants will face a series of 'Crystal Maze'-style challenges against the clock and must then solve them before infamous blood-sucker Dracula finds and catches them. 

And the best news of all? Tickets are free. All you need to do is apply for a space. Those who are successful will be sent a code which will grant them access to Dracula's castle. 

The pop-up escape room is running from September 29 to October 2 and will be open between 9am and 9pm. 

The event is being run by the brains behind new TV show 'Dracula, Escape the Castle' (Sundays from October 2 on INsight TV) which will see contestants compete to escape Dracula's castle in Transylvania.
