Get me out of here! The addictive thrill of escape games

Fancy paying to be locked up for an hour? You do. Really, trust me: you do. I’m locked in a room, a woman called Amy is dying before my eyes and I’m freaking out. To help her, I have to escape – if I don’t, we’re both in trouble and judging by the flickery CCTV feed I’m watching her on, she’s fading fast. Just another Wednesday night in Birmingham city centre.
