The 49th Room

There is great divide that exits in North America.  The 49th parallel separates continental USA with Canada.  Interestingly to me, though probably not for anyone else, Charles de Gaulle airport lies on this parallel.  I can hear some of you already asking what on earth this has got to do with Escape Rooms?  Well, recently […]

8 Countries, 48 Rooms – UK

Over the last year my experience of UK escape rooms has been fairly mixed.  My first UK room was at Clue Quest.  Clue quest is still ranked as the number 1 escape room in the UK on Trip Advisor and for good reason.  I had a really good experience at Clue Quest but must admit […]

8 Countries, 48 Rooms -Istanbul
