Fox in a Box is the newest escape room to hit London, and has swung in at a super high level to wow us all!
My heart is still in my mouth after completing their Zodiac Killer game with a group of fellow bloggers, a few days ago. Thanks to @lovepopupslondon for this awesome experience, and to @foxinaboxldn for hosting us. It was scary, fun, challenging: all the things you want to feel and have in an escape room. I loved the way we were taken into the room (which I won’t, of course, give away!), the accompanying audio, the challenges the room offered and the decor.
At 37, it’s actually my only experience of an escape room game: and with the high level it offers, I’m almost a bit concerned to try others now! One of my team mates, fellow blogger @shinylifeforme has done around 55 escape rooms (you can tell- thanks for being an awesome leader through this Bianca!) and said this is one of the best ones she has ever done. So quite simply: you’re not going to be disappointed!
We were met by the lovely Atkin, who’s son Sheay is the owner of this large branch right by Dalston Junction station, which only opened around a month ago. Atkin talked us through some additional health and safety information, gave some general pointers re the game, and also a few laughs which was very welcome, as I have to say we were feeling quite nervous! Anyone would think the Zodiac Killer was going to show up, but then, nerves are part of a good immersive experience isn’t it, and FoxinaBoxldn prides itself on trying to be as immersive as possible. As I say, as someone who has never looked into escape rooms before, on arrival I was still totally clueless as to was was going to happen, apart from understanding that we have 60 minutes to get the code to get out of the room, or we’d be featuring on their wall of shame! And no one wants that to happen, right?!
I was delighted Bianca and the others knew what they was doing, and loved every minute but was so damn grateful when we got out around the 50 minute mark lol! And the water afterwards that we were supplied with was very welcome.
Fox in a Box London offers 4 exciting rooms to choose from, at £30 per person. It’s appropriate for all ages, but they recommend 14 as a minimum age, or under 14 to be accompanied by an adult. Perfect to do with a group of friends, colleagues as part of team building, for a birthday part event, or a little bit of challenging family fun!
I’ll be back- just deciding what room to do next!!
Nearest train/tube: Overground, Dalston Junction
Thanks again @foxinaboxldn and @lovepopupslondon for this super experience.
