Archimedes Inspiration escape game

Time Out says

Be warned: this ‘fully automated' escape game is not for novices. On my visit (one month into their existence) a grand total of zero people had ever escaped within an hour, although they do give you extra time to finish. It’s also a real gear change compared to most other London venues of its ilk. This tale of helping a woman find her long-lost brother involves no padlocks at all. It’s heavily logic/maths-puzzle centric, with very little searching of the room involved and rather than your team splitting up to discover and solve puzzles in mini-groups, there's only one puzzle at a time to solve before you can progress.

Basically, it’s not quite the usual adrenaline-packed race against time you’d usually expect from an escape game. The ‘fully automated’ bit means that contraptions unlock automatically rather than anyone in another room pushing a button, which, while clever, makes very little difference to your playing experience. But there are some very cool touches involved: the room features nice gadgets, clues are delivered via a Whatsapp-style app on an iPod touch they give you and if you’d like, you have the option of joining them in the control room to watch your team-mates play rather than actually trying to crack the puzzle yourself (probably more one for repeat visitors). For anyone who loves a fiendish thinky-thinky problem, this is probably the escape game for you. But be prepared to be heavily challenged. Alexi Duggins
