After writing about some grown up Halloween experiences last week, it got me thinking about much fun it really would be to get away and do something different this year. That being said, I still the love the idea of having some flexibility around when you actually travel and not having to commit to dates unless you are ready to, so I’ve come up with some more options but this time from the fabulous Red Letter Days.
Head to Holloway in Greater London and you and a friend get to choose between two rooms to escape from before the time runs out. Will you opt for The Breakout and use tactical skills to break your boss out from prison? Or, will you go for my Halloween option, The Killer, this room is simple, you need to escape in time to survive, just channel all that horror movie knowledge to get away.
Experience Jeff Wayne’s The War of the Worlds like never before. With amazing sets, live performances and stunning virtual reality elements you will really feel like you are there. As you are exploring you’ll get to take a twenty minute break in The Red Weed Bar to enjoy a glass of champagne each, a must when trying to escape Martian invaders attacking Victorian London. If you survive you’ll also get to enjoy another glass and a meal at The Spirit of Man.
So we all know with my absolute fear of zombies there’s no way I would be attending this one, but it sounds so horrifying it would be a perfect Halloween experience. With six terrifying locations across the country to choose from you could be suited up and ready with your ammo and weapons in no time, ready to battle zombies in this immersive experience. Zombie apocalypse survival knowledge is a must.
Now I’m not sure if I love, or hate, the idea of a murder mystery evening. On the one hand I love a good murder mystery, I’ve read all the books and watched all the films, I feel solving the crime could be where my skills lie. I’m also surprisingly competitive and love to ‘win’ this type of thing. But then, on the other hand, I hate being the centre of attention and meeting new people and am not great a group participation. It’s a dilemma. What I know for sure I love about this experience is with a choice of 28 locations we’d be able to travel somewhere new, enjoy a night away in a lovely hotel and have a delicious three course meal.
My final pick is maybe not the scariest or spookiest but I think it would be a lot of fun. Head out into London for a tour of famous Doctor Who locations, you’ll find out how certain episodes were made whilst visiting the location of the Slitheen Transmitter and getting to see where the Cybermen invaded. In fact you’ll visit over 15 different sights during this tour that lasts around two and a half hours. Try and slip this one in before the end of the month when they close for the season, but don’t worry your voucher will last long enough that you can use it next year when they re-open in April if your October is as hectic as mine!
