Averting A Christmas Eve Disaster!
Our friend, Savio, told us that Santa had just loaded all the presents on his sleigh ready to deliver to all the boys and girls around the world, when he discovered a problem. Santa’s sleigh was stuck! If he didn’t release it soon Christmas will be a disaster and no gifts would be delivered.
So this Christmas Eve we leapt into action and headed to Hornchurch. (Yes, I know that’s not the north pole, but that’s where the portal to the barn was located.) Braving the traffic and the last minute Christmas shoppers we arrived at ROOM LOCKDOWN where we were met by Games Master Ben.
He explained our team’s mission. We were to enter the barn and find a way to release Santa’s sleigh. And we only had an hour to complete the mission.
First we were shown into a Christmas themed room. A large decorated tree stood in the corner of the room. Tinsel and decorations were all around.
So where was the barn?
Well, to stop anyone realising that this was a portal to Santa, we had to prove ourselves worthy by solving puzzles and revealing the secret door. then we still had to solve puzzles to free the sleigh and send Santa on his way.
As you probably know by now ( as you open your presents) we succeeded.
Merry Christmas Everyone!
Room Lockdown run a number of escape rooms. They change the themes on a regular basis, so there is always something new to discover. Games Master Ben tells me they also run seasonal games. This Christmas themed one runs until 6th January 2019 and they run an annual Halloween themed room.

Ho, ho, ho! Time for a festive Treasure Hunt.
This adventure is based on Christmas carols. You will not have to strain your singing voices, just your “little grey cells” as you try to work out the answers to the song sheet of clues. This is not a ‘race’, so you can take your time to explore the National Portrait Gallery, the oldest portrait gallery in the world. Then it’s off to a secret location for after-hunt cocktails and prize giving.
Teams of 2 to 4 people must be pre-booked. This adventure is for over 18’s only and includes the festive treasure hunt, cocktails and prizes.
