Lucardo was my first room escape experience and I loved it. I’d heard so much about the horror-themed rooms around the country that I was never quite sure about doing one myself, but Lucardo offers an alternative experience.
When I went with a group of my own friends we took part in the ‘Espionage’ escape, set during World War 2. Your group is tasked with finding the confidential documents hidden around the room before finding the keys to escape, all within a time limit.
It was the most fun afternoon I’d had in a long time as we worked together to figure out clues and codes, running around the room to try and unlock cabinets and piece together pieces of the puzzle.
The staff were lovely and incredibly supportive throughout, offering hints and tips when we asked and staying generally very positive throughout.
We got out within the time limit (just) but it made us all want to go again.
Lucardo also offers other takes on the room escape genre: a Harry Potter-like room, a dream-based room, a murder mystery and a bank heist are all also available.
Personally, it may be a bit pricey to be more than a once or twice off, but Lucardo is definitely fun.
