Some weeks are better than others, and for us, this week has been purely and simply, fabulous! We have been taking our outdoor escape room experience - Magic Portal - to local schools, where we have been working with children from the age of 9 up to 17. The children worked in teams, and had 2 hours to explore their local area following the route we had plotted, solving puzzles in order to close the Magic Portal in the fastest time possible.
After the last 15 months, we all know how important it is for children of all ages to have some fun. We were keen to share how escape rooms and being outdoors in natural settings, has a positive impact on mental health and well-being. It didn’t matter whether the children were 9 years old, or 17 years old, they reacted exactly the same. There was laughter, yelping with joy (that included Lorna!), excited chatter and lots of good fun had by all.
A NEWtown Experience
The success with schools this week, has fuelled our excitement for the next phase of our outdoor escape room experience. We are soon to launch Magic Portal to be played in Newtown, enabling families and friends to explore Newtown in a new way. The game will enable you to experience the town in a way that you never have before!
Testing, Testing, 1,2,3
At present, we are working very hard behind the scenes, plotting co-ordinates on maps, deciding on puzzles to use where, in order to enable the best immersive sight seeing experience. So, as with all escape games, we need some teams to come and test the game, before we officially launch it for the general public. Therefore, if you have a team who would be interested to come and test Magic Portal for us, please get in touch with us, we would love to hear from you.
