A 'Breaking Bad' Themed Escape Room Is Coming To The UK
There's no denying the UK has gone escape room mad in recent years, but the latest offering might just be the most sketchy yet.
Inspired by one of the most enduringly popular TV shows of all time, Breaking Bad, the new attraction comes complete with abandoned vehicles, lab equipment and yep, you guessed it, some rather inventive 'home baking'.
Named 'Escaping Bad' (see what they did there?), it's located in a shady-looking RV in the backyard of London's Studio 388, located on the Greenwich Peninsula.
Visitors will be tasked with cracking the codes, chemistry and method that are used to cook the purest 'product'.
The immersive experience doesn't open until June 2020, but tickets went on sale today (details below) so you'll need to be quick.
The challenge itself promises to test your brains, teamwork and reactions, while guests will leave with a bag of blue crystals and a 'purity rating' depending on how well they fare.
Basically it sounds a lot like a GCSE chemistry lesson, except the stakes are much higher.
So what's the concept, we hear you ask? Well, an abandoned vehicle has been found deep in the desert wastelands of New Mexico, riddled with bullet holes and containing some highly suspect lab equipment.
Accompanying the methyl-amine and glassware is a notebook. Written entirely in code and hidden behind a series of puzzles and clues, lies the ultimate recipe: the method for making the highest quality crystal the world has ever seen.
As a group of upstart players you're tasked with getting inside the mind of your predecessors and picking up where they left off.
However, it's not quite as straightforward as it sounds; the cartel are on their way so time is short, meaning you'll have to work together quickly or you may never escape the desert alive. Eek.
The instalment is the brainchild of The Riddle Within, a company that also masterminded London's Flight 338, a sold-out escape room set aboard a real life aeroplane.
One-hour sessions are available for teams of between two and six, starting at £20 per head. The venue is a 10-minute walk from North Greenwich station on the Jubilee Line.
