Southend Launch New ‘Pop-Up’ Easter Augmented Reality Experience!

This Easter the team in Southend are offering a limited number of would be secret agents the chance to save the world.

The newest game will only be playable between the 19th and 22nd of April and cost just £30 for a team of up to 6 players.

Unlike other Escape Rooms and experiences this will be set inside the Victoria Shopping Centre and the aim of the game is not to escape but to save all of human kind. Your team will meet our Agents inside the shopping centre and be given a tablet to help you on your mission called Operation Mindfall.

Our W.I.S.E agents have discovered a terrorist organisation known as Spider Tech. They have developed a virus that infects the human brain, giving the terrorists full control over the victim’s mind. You and your team of covert operatives have just 60 minutes to find the antidote and stop them from unleashing chaos and destruction all over the globe.

Jennifer Larner, one of the owners behind Escape Live in Essex thinks this is ideal for families looking for something different and fun to do as a family. She said: “My family love doing things together but sometimes it’s difficult to find something that everyone will love. That’s why we’ve put this experience together and are running it over Easter.”

Jennifer said: “We’ve been here for 3 years almost exactly to the day and following on from the success of our third game Pirate Plunder we really wanted to give our amazing customers something new and a little bit different so I hope they enjoy Operation Mindfall.”

“The game uses some really cool elements of augmented reality which still amazes me when I see it. There’s loads of puzzles to solve and you need to find things all around the shopping centre. When I first played it I really did feel like a spy.”

“We hope that it brings families together and gives them a new option for some quality time together at an affordable price.”

Operation Mindfall can be played by teams of up to 6 players and ages 8+ as long as there is an adult as part of the group. This is only playable on the 19th, 20th, 21st and 22nd April between 10am and 5pm. Book online via the Escape Live website,, or call 01702 437337.
