Taking on a vampire at London Escaped

Hidden within a dark corner of London Escaped lies a sleeping vampire ready to awake and take his next victims so seeking vampire slayers I and some other community members of Love Pop Ups London we were invited down to become Vampire Slayers within one of their scariest escape rooms for horror fans.

London Escaped

London Escaped provides fans of escape rooms very atmospheric games filled with technology.

At present they have six games Prisoner, Da Vinci, Vampire Slayer, School of Magic, White Walker and Wizards Cup with a new one on the way.

Like all other escape rooms the mission is to hunt for items, find clues, solve puzzles and to beat escape within 60 minutes.

Becoming a Vampire Slayer

Seven centuries ago the members of the “White Rose”, the secret order established to protect the mankind, they gave their lives in the effort to slay Dracula, the bane of humanity. They failed, yet the last of them managed to seal the gates of Dracula’s crypt and bury the master of vampires inside the walls. Years passed. The withered vampire was not able to escape, waiting for his descendants to bring him back to life. Today the crypt, long buried beneath the castle walls was finally found and now it’s just a matter of time for vampires to revive their lord, who only needs a single drop of blood to raise. Yes, there’s still a chance. If those, who carry the symbol of “White Rose” will finish what was started, maybe we all have a chance to survive this evil.

Last year I had the pleasure of playing London Escaped Prisoner and Da Vinci and I was back to take on a vampire. With my last horror experience within their escape room the Prisoner I was excited to seek out the sleeping vampire whom resides in their other horror type escape room. I was ready to stake him before he awoke and potentially killed us all. However I was slightly disappointed by this game and here is why.

I expected high standards like the last ones I played but unfortunately from the off there did not seem to be a great story line and the props were not of great standard. In fact some of the props were so badly made that some were falling apart which is surprising considering this room has only been up and running since February, just over six months old.

The puzzles were alright but not many that involved technology they were more of your average style puzzle type games like a map to solve for a clue and writing on the walls leading to a clue. However I really liked the puzzles within inside the coffins that required using black light. However it was a little difficult to see what the writing said as the coffins were a little small to manoeuvre within.

For me the best part about the Vampire Slayer was the end when I got to stake the vampire saving our lives and escaping the room in 50 minutes, sadly though this room was a horror for all the wrong reasons.

What a horror

As a fan of vampires and horror movies I really wanted to like this room but unfortunately it disappointed me in many ways from the start from the host whom seemed disinterested, the story, the puzzles and shabby props which some were fallen apart.

The room is advertised for 2 – 12 players. There was 7 of us playing and I felt that this was a little to many people for this room as some of us was left standing with nothing to do as some puzzles only required 2 to 3 people. So I would only advise doing this room if you love vampires and with a maximum number of 4 others.
