If you love an escape room then you’ll love this new outdoor event. Yes, the new interactive outdoor escape experience is coming to Leicester this month and they’re even offering free tickets on offer for NHS workers.

The Big Escape Live runs through a GPS activated game, which means you can enjoy it outdoors whilst keeping social distancing and following the rule of six. Groups of up to six people play against each other with a leaderboard updated in real time giving those taking part a competitive edge.

The gaming experience will see Leicester city centre turned into a giant playground with teams solving puzzles, cracking codes and completing challenges to take down Big Al’s casino in a classic heist.

Mark French from The Big Escape said:

“We had such a great time in Birmingham earlier this month we wanted to offer other people in the Midlands the chance to enjoy this unique gaming experience. After months of being in lockdown, we hope this brings people back into our city centres to have fun and maybe spend money in the shops and restaurants.

“The game can be played anytime as tickets are valid for 6 months but the idea of The Big Escape Live is that teams will play on the same day creating a buzz around the city – especially if they’re also in fancy dress which is optional!

“It’s a fun and safe outdoor atmosphere for people of all ages to enjoy.”
