This year, we got invited to a Christmas Party at the newly refurbished Coach and Horses in Leyton. As well as a chance to listen to Christmas Blues over the meal we also got the chance to travel through a time portal back to New York in 1935 to solve a murder and hunt for Gangsters Treasure.
Well who could resist such an offer?
Gangsters Treasure Escape Room
As you can see, some of us were more into the Christmas Party theme than others as we were shown upstairs for our time machine trip.
Stepping through the door into The Chop Palace Bar in 1935 New York we immediately noticed the blood stained floor where the notorious gangster Dutch Schultz had been killed. The bar tender informed us that the police are due to arrive in one hour. That gave us just enough time to find out who killed Dutch, find his will and locate his hidden treasure.
We split up and started to search the room. When we needed a clue the barman, in return for a small bribe, would point us in the right direction.
The puzzles are intriguing and we spent a lot of time showing each other what we’d solved. So much so that although we solved the murder and found the stash, we did it with only 14 seconds to spare.
14 seconds to evade the cops and head back to 2018 and a delicious Christmas meal.
Gangsters Treasure – A murder mystery and an escape room in one – recommended.
