Crystal Maze-style adventure escape room game is set to open in Northampton
Work is due to start next week to renovate a derelict workshop in Northampton to make way for four live escape rooms.
The one hour timed game, Trapp'd, is designed to shut in a small group of people inside a themed room where participants are encouraged to use teamwork skills, intuition and intelligence to crack challenging codes, which will lead to their escape.
Owner, David Laird said that work will begin on Monday (February, 6) at a workshop on Connaught Street and the goal is for the building to open in May.
He said: "We are aiming between a six to seven-week turnaround.
"There will be four escape rooms but the two rooms we are planning to launch with is an old mine shaft and an optical illusion room.
"We lock you and your friends or colleagues into a room and you have to solve problems and crack codes in 60 minutes, it's not too dissimilar to the crystal maze."
The popular teamwork game has already three escape rooms in Corby in the east of Northamptonshire.
