Teenage Cancer Trust Visit Escape Live

Birmingham’s number one escape room venue welcomed young cancer patients to tackle the challenges of the attraction.

Young people from the Teenage Cancer Trust Young Person’s Unit (YPU) at Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham (QEHB) enjoyed an exciting morning at Escape Live Birmingham in the Jewellery Quarter.

Split into two teams, they were challenged to get out of one of the themed rooms in an hour by cracking a series of clues and puzzles at the Henrietta Street-based site.

They tackled the challenges of The Lab where players enter a scientific research facility where a toxic gas leak could spread and be a danger. The team worked together to isolate the affected areas, make the facility safe and save the world!

A second group set out on an intrepid adventure in Time Machine, where the team was lost in a time travel loop hole that took them to different moments in history.

They had to discover clues to find their way back to the present day or risk being lost in the past forever.

Will Amott, Venue Manager at Escape Live Birmingham, said: “It was an absolute pleasure to welcome the teams from YPU, QEHB and the young people to take on the challenge of our rooms at Escape Live Birmingham.

“We are very pleased they had a great time. The two teams did extremely well working together to solve the clues and get out of the rooms with minutes still on the clock.

“Escape Live has become one of the most popular escape games room venues in the UK and is earning rave reviews on TripAdvisor.

“Our escape rooms are for between two and six people and we currently have four rooms in Birmingham which include The Lab and Time Machine.”

Other rooms at Escape Live Birmingham are Dr Wilson’s Office, based on a detective theme and Room 13, which has a horror twist.

Senior Fundraiser at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham Charity, Rachel Learmonth, said: “QEHB Charity is incredibly grateful to Will and everyone at Escape Live Birmingham for their generosity in inviting the young people along for a really fun morning.

“It was great to see the young people enjoying themselves and taking on the brilliant challenges.”

As well as Birmingham, Escape Live also has three other venues in Coventry, Stratford and Essex and for more information visit www.escapelive.co.uk.
