How The Remote Live Escape Room Experience was Born.

Covid 19 hit businesses with a massive impact, no more so than Twinwoods Adventure, an entertainment complex built at a former military research base, complete with wind tunnels, offering everything from indoor skydiving to playrooms for kids. With staff living on site, and falling through the net of any government funding, things looked bleak. So, rather than give up and through in the towel, they decided if people can’t come to the escape room they will take it to them. And this shows that out of negatives, positive things can happen with the right drive and attitude.

They took their war themed ‘Morse Code’ and installed cameras covering all angles, they appointed a games master who was there to help and coordinate the teams progress as well as collate any clues found made available via an online document, and most importantly a trooper, a member of staff, who acts as your hands and is at your command to rummage, push buttons, and interact with everything in the room. And the ‘remote live escape room experience’ was born. Allowing people to get together through lockdown and enjoy all the experiences, adrenaline and excitement as if they were there, from the comfort of their own home.

So, how does a remote live escape room experience work you may ask? Well, everyone connects via their desktop, laptop, tablet or other digital device and with the power of Zoom conferencing can see everything streamed directly to them in a POV (Point of View) by the trooper, as well as able to switch to the other cameras covering the room. Everyone communicates via mic and can instruct the trooper, discuss the clues and challenges together and have full interaction in their bid to escape.

And it doesn’t stop at just a remote live escape room experience, also on the table are premium packages, these include wine tasting experience (with the wine delivered to everyone’s doorstep before the experience.), pub quiz to get your minds in gear, party games, corporate quiz designed to play with your work colleagues and even a school package to keep the children thinking. These are proving to be hugely popular to the point that Twinwoods are building more and even offer a crowd funding project https://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/beattheboredom to #beattheboredom.

This just shows that businesses who face impossible challenges can overcome them and flourish. So, if you, or anyone you know would love to try this remote live escape room experience visit https://twinwoodsadventure.com/activities/remote-escape-room-special-packages and book your experience.

See what our customers thought of it!

A brilliant way to spend lockdown with mates. I've always been a fan of escape rooms, so this was a very novel way to experience one. Good clues, a fun theme and a humorous "trooper' made this really enjoyable. The future of entertainment? - Zak

 

We had our own voice-controlled soldier! What a way to spend some time with friends during lockdown - it was fun directing our "trooper" remotely, and as a team.

Probably at least as fun as getting to the venue and taking the challenge in person. It even ended in a live jump off the building via video. Thanks to the team for setting up this innovation! - Julian

 

What a great Escape! Our team had a mix of first timers and more experienced players from the UK and Ireland. The playing instructions were easy for everyone to follow and it didn’t take long before we were in full flow on the mission at hand. Our designated Avatar facilitated and supported endless demands, moments of confusion, triumph, and dead ends; They became an extended part of our team, willing us on and celebrating our escape within the allotted 60 minutes! The absolute cherry on the cake was the unexpected virtual jump from the top of Twinwoods Adventure - Incredible! Buzzing and high, the laptop lid closed, and it was back to the reality of our front rooms but wearing a grin from ear to ear - The escape was real. - Libby

 

I was a bit sceptical about doing this as I thought it could get confusing, but once we were set up on Zoom, the host made everything clear and it turned out to be a breeze and a good laugh. Good escape from the daily boredom at the moment and would be fun to do anyway! - Tobias 

 

I was incredibly surprised at exactly how involving it was. It did draw you into an experience in a way other forms of entertainment are unable to. The reference materials and the fact clues came up in your inventory immediately worked very well too. - Rob

The Morse Code online escape room was incredibly good fun. Working over Zoom with your in-person 'avatar,' who was easy to direct, allowed you to view the room like you were there. Clues appeared immediately in the Google Drive for you to inspect closely and they presented us with a stiff challenge. There were a number of red herrings that kept us guessing! This experience could be done with a family around one monitor or hooked up to the TV, or with lockdown meaning relatives are distant, a fun way to catch up with them. - Adam
