The Big Escape announces live outdoor Halloween events

A new interactive outdoor escape experience is coming to Derby, Norwich and Wolverhampton on Halloween with free tickets on offer for NHS workers.

The Big Escape Live has been created so that hundreds can play the GPS activated game while social distancing and following the rule of six.

The event on Halloween will see groups playing against each other with a leaderboard updated in real time giving those taking part a competitive edge.

The gaming experience sees the all three city centres turned into giant playgrounds with teams solving puzzles, cracking codes and completing challenges to take down Big Al’s casino in a classic heist.

Mark French from The Big Escape said:

“We’ve made a number of changes to ensure people can play the game safely.

“After months of being in lockdown, we wanted to do something to bring people back into the city to have fun and maybe spend money in the shops and restaurants.

“The game can be played anytime as tickets are valid for 6 months but the idea of The Big Escape Live is that teams will play on Halloween creating a buzz around the city – especially if they’re also in spooky fancy dress which is optional!

“It’s a fun and safe outdoor atmosphere for people of all ages to enjoy.”

Tickets cost £44 per team (a maximum of 6 people) with the organisers offering free tickets to NHS workers for the events which take place on Saturday 31st October.

All NHS workers need to do is go to Facebook and “like” The Big Escape and send a message with their ID.
