Have you tried a little Lockdown.

I don't normally post on a Sunday but I thought I would share a little Inverness entertainment with you.
On Friday afternoon the family decided to have a little time out together at a recently new attraction in Inverness called Lockdown.

At Lockdown you enter a room, it's not a normal room and are locked in!
You have an hour to work out the combination to a safe which allows you to retrieve a key and exit the room.  We decided to do the Area 51 room which had an Alien theme.
An hour to save the planet, gulp!
When you first enter the room you do feel a little like a rabbit in the headlights, not really knowing where to start.   We soon got the hang of things and after quite a bit of fumbling, some team work and a few problems solved we did manage to exit the room with only 7 minutes and 38 seconds left on the clock.  Phew!  Just in time.
The boys both managed a couple of key points which was great.
It good fun for all the family.
The only downside is that the hour goes far too fast, when you are busy clue solving.
Or if you have teens like mine it is just long enough to spend out socialising with your embarrassing parents!  ;)
The rooms are for 2 to 6 people, great for groups, families and friends.
Why not give it a go yourself?
Can you save the world?!

We have one of these in Norwich and I rather fancy trying it, need to find some other hood clue solvers to join us, not sure if I might feel claustrophobic though.

I've not heard of it before but it does sound a lot of fun. It must be very satisfying to have found the key within the time limit. Barbxx

I have to admit I've only heard of these as they did one on the Big Bang theory! Sounds like it was a great trip out for the family. Have a great day, Cara x

Hi Erika, I've not heard of this, but it sounds like a great day out if you have children, Kate x
