“Wow!! What can I say apart from I have never had so much fun in my life.
From start to finish you are immersed in the 90s tv show the crystal maze. The detail and time it has taken these guys to put this all together shows as this is one of the best experiences I had.”
The 90s Crystal Maze show is trending again. No, it’s not the TV game launched by Richard O’Brien and now presented by another Richard (Ayoade). It’s the escape room – inspired by the show we’ve all wanted to be part of as a kid. If you’re looking for an adventurous weekend that fulfils your childhood’s dream, booking your game at the Crystal Maze in London should be on top of the list.

What is the Crystal Maze?
The Crystal Maze escape game has a similar set to the TV show. You and your team run around four different zones – Futuristic, Industrial, Aztec and Medieval – to solve mysteries and face challenges both physical and mental. You get to win crystal just like in the real game to complete your final test in the Crystal Dome. Unlike other escape games that are limited to one room, this one is a complete against the clock world! It’s worth noting as well that the experience last 75 mins, instead of the traditional 60 mins in the escape industry. Why should you want to do it? Because, if you’re honest, a tiny part of you has always watched the show and hoped to be part of a team in the future. Now is your chance!
Organise transport ahead
Every escape game is an adrenaline rush. So, if you want to make the most of the Crystal Maze, you should plan for comfortable and relaxing transportation through town. Hiring a minicab in London is a brilliant plan to arrive on time and avoid getting lost in the public transport system! Ultimately, the Crystal Maze is a challenging experience; you want to come in the best mental conditions.
Wear something suitable
What should you wear in an escape room? The Crystal Maze doesn’t provide players with a team uniform. Therefore, you’ll be wearing your own clothes. It’s a good idea to stick to a breathy and cosy outfit that doesn’t hinder your movement. You will be running and crawling during the experience, so heels and tight dresses are a no-no. Additionally, you should keep your style as casual as possible. A cute necklace could cost you precious time in the field!
Get your Insta-worthy picture
Finally, your group picture is maybe the most critical part of the Crystal Maze experience. The chances are that the photo will be shared online, and it might even be your profile picture. So you want to put some thoughts into creating an interesting photo. Group posing can be a lot of fun. A tip from the experts: Practice your pose ahead! Large groups can use their bodies to create giant numbers, such as your escape time.
Are you ready to get to the Crystal Dome? If you’ve heard this in the voice of Richard O’Brien, you are a true fan from the first hour. But regardless which presenter has won your heart, it is your time to shine in your own Crystal Maze adventure in London.
