Venue of the week: Locked In A Room at ExCeL London

Take claustrophobia to new levels with Locked In A Room - Europe's largest escape-game themed venue, which opened this week at ExCeL London.

Individual teams are locked in a room and tasked with solving a series of tests, puzzles and clues in order to escape. With 13 themed rooms available over two identical formats, Locked In A Room can cater for large groups, allowing participants to compete against 12 other teams in a head-to-head challenge. The space has been purposefully designed to ensure players are provided with a memorable escape game experience. 

Escape game provider Locked In A Room also has a facility in Bristol. Its director, Jon Pfaff, said: "We are thrilled to have our newest venue up and running and are delighted to have partnered with ExCeL to bring the concept of Locked In A Room to London."

The experience can be combined with an event, offering a fun and interactive team building experience. 

James Rees, executive Director at ExCeL London, said: "We are delighted that Locked In A Room has chosen Excel to open a London arm of their business."

An Alcatraz-inspired escape room was created at Westfield London over the summer to promote low-cost airline Norwegian's new route from London Gatwick to Oakland International Airport, San Francisco.

Top secret agents have to find their way to the centre of operations at Maman Le Mot, a venue, dinner and immmersive experience in one.
