Despite receiving bad news (not laptop related, this time), I have had a whale of a time this week.
From re-bonding with people I used to work with years ago and working with new people, birthday dinners and a lot of fun and games, let’s just say that I don’t think my summer has ended just yet.
This week, I was lucky enough to be one of the 25 bloggers who visited HintHunt this week with LV= Insurance and Joe Blogs. It honestly has to be one of the best Wednesday nights I’ve had in a while. You can read the blog post about fun family days out here.
HintHunt “is a new simple and fun live escape game, designed for small groups of 3-5 people. You get 60 minutes to climb a mountain of puzzles and mysteries in a tiny room. The goal is simple yet challenging: get out in time! Else … you could be trapped inside forever! During this engaging and challenging game team members truly live and breathe in union for an hour.”
I can’t divulge too much information about what exactly happened in that locked room, except that there were a lot of passcodes, clues and locked doors. Also a lot of scrambling! However, my team (shout out to Katy and Erin!) managed to escape with one second to go. No joke, no lie. #teamonesecondtogo
We wanted to take a picture as proof, but we weren’t allowed 🙁 Nevertheless, I had a blast and I will definitely be visiting again with my friends. It’s totally something that would be fun to do for a birthday or similar occasion. And despite thinking one hour is quite a long time, time FLIES in there.
I’m stoked just thinking about the next time I get to go there! 😀
It sounds like your week has been a w e s o m e (in cursive writing). You’re so lucky to be able to attend blogging events! It brings hobby to a whole new level (in a good way). The game, HintHunt sounds interesting. I wonder what kind of puzzles are there. But wow, your teammates got lucky for getting out before the game was over!!
Hopefully you’ll get that chance to come again ;).
A blogging event? That sounds like pure awesome! I’m glad your friends made it in time, because I’ve felt the joy of making it with minutes to spare. It’s a great feeling. Hahahaha
It’s relief too, but also joy.
Hinthunt sounds interesting. Puzzles? I wish I was good at them. Oh well 🙁
I want to go to HintHunt. It sounds like Crystal Maze, haha! Looks like you had a good night.
I’m going to an event run by Joe Blogs next week in Manchester and I’m so excited, but I little nervous too. I have to thank you for that because if I hadn’t read about your past adventures with them on your blog then I probably wouldn’t have known about it and joined. So thank you very much!
It was so nice to meet you! You were a fabulous teammate 🙂 hope to see you again soon! Xxxx
My Gosh, that sounds like fun. Philadelphia is terribly dull and they don’t have such cool and interactive events. I need to move to the UK, pronto.
