Today, I ended up at my first escape room experience. Beforehand I felt a little nervous as I wasn’t sure what to expect but we had the most amazing time!
When we arrived we read some information about the room we were entering.
MAINE STATE PRISON (CORBY ONLY)
Welcome to the Maine State Prison, also known as, ‘HELL IN A CELL’ and renowned for being the worst prison on Earth. Prisoners are left to die here, treated as slaves for the remainder of their lives and forced to live in conditions so horrific that over 500 people have died within these walls since 2014.
If you are unlucky enough to be sentenced to a term in Maine State Prison, the chances are you won’t be leaving here alive. Rats run freely around the cells, the stench of faeces and urine sticks to the back of your lungs, people are executed publicly in a display of power by the guards. This is not a prison you ever want to set foot in, let alone spend the rest of your life in.
With armed guards at every corner of the prison, only two people have ever managed to escape; the other 424 who tried were executed. Legend has it that the two heroes who escaped Maine State, left a cryptic code in their cell which no-one has ever managed to crack. Solving this code holds the only key to any hope of escape.
You were stupid enough to get yourself in here, now it’s time to prove that you’ve got what it takes to get out. Crack the code and run for your freedom…or remain TRAPP’D at Maine State Prison.
We popped on our inmate suits, left our phones behind and were blindfolded. Then we were led to the room(s) that we had to escape.
Once inside the room we removed our blindfolds and had 1 hour to escape. To do this, you have to look for clues and tools to help you escape!
I won’t spoil the surprise as to how you escape ☺
We did manage to escape from the room in approximately 40 minuets. This was my first escape room experience and I will DEFINITELY be doing it again!
