We’ve not been out for a long time to do an Escape room, however, this brand new one was too much of an enticement for us.

Hourglass Escape Room has only just opened at the Focus Centre on Chesnut Avenue in Dogsthorpe. It has been created and is run by two long-term escape room enthusiasts Della-Marie and James – who by the way, built this room single-handed. Their room is called Unstoppable: Your train from Kings Cross is in trouble and you’re the only people who can stop it before disaster hits at Peterborough!

They’ve already had a bunch of testers in to see how the room is from other Peterborough escape rooms so now it’s our turn to see if we can crack those clues. Also, to keep the safety up we are only playing as a pair, not with friends as we might usually do. We have just 60 minutes to stop this train before it goes off the rails.

Peep peep, all aboard and onto the First Class carriage for our trip from London to Peterborough. There’s a great feel to the room with authentic furniture and articles from an era gone-by. A bonus is that all of these things are being recycled – what a great use for your grandma’s suitcases! Cleverly thought out puzzles and intriguing clues to get that mind whirring. If you get stuck, don’t worry just listen for the steam train whistle and there will be help at hand if you look out the carriage window at the scenery. We made it out in 52 minutes – with 2 people can you beat us?

Being located at the Focus Centre there is plenty of free parking all you have to do it go to the main door and either text or call the number to be let in. I personally would say that it’s not suitable for young children. It’s Della and Jame’s first room and hopefully not their last as they have plans for the future. (watch this space)

Here’s the rules: All players and staff will be required to wear a mask on the premises and throughout your game. All games must be played by members of the same household or support bubble. All players will be asked to sanitise their hands upon arrival to the game. Additional time is being allocated between games to allow for deep cleaning. Please arrive no more than 10 minutes before your game time.

If you want to play, why not take them up on their launch discount for September: 20% off all bookings made before September 30th. Use code HOURGLASS20. Open every day except Mondays. They are offering gift vouchers too if anyone’s interested for gifts.

Between having cocktails and playing cards, we think you’re going to enjoy it. Have fun!
