I completely forgot what Cardiff is like on a Saturday night. To be fair, I think the last time I went “out” in Cardiff you could still drive down St Mary’s Street and Oceana was still around. Ho yes, it’s been a while. But this time, instead of the whole drinks, drunk-dancing, dirty burger routine we opted for something a little bit different. We dodged the crowds ducking down Caroline Street and decided to Escape Reality instead.
I’d heard of the whole escape room thing before – in fact they’re so popular that there are now four different companies in Cardiff alone – but I’d never tried it. (If you’re new to the concept the idea is to team up with up to 5 other friends, family or coworkers, get locked in a room and then work together to solve a series of themed clues in order to “escape”) So when Escape Reality got in touch and asked if I’d like to give it a try, I said “yes please!” and dragged my brother, his girlfriend and the hubs along for an early Halloween night out. 🙂
If you’re looking for Halloween night out with a difference, then I’d definitely recommend trying out Escape Reality. There’s a room to suit everyone, from difficult to easy and from horror to heists. It’s great fun, and as soon as you’ve escaped you’ll want to be locked back up again 🙂
(Psst! I’ve just noticed via Twitter that you can get a 20% discount on your booking between the 28th and 30th of October if you add the code HALLOW20 at the checkout. PLUS, if you turn up in costume, you get a free drink at the bar. Happy Halloween!)
