World’s first escape room on a plane prepares for lift-off
The Riddle Within, an Escape Rooms team with years of experience staging immersive events, has teamed up with one of London’s largest clubs, Studio 338, and the crew behind Brighton’s successful Bewilder Box, to create two experiences set to take the escape room industry to the next level.
As well as the world’s first escape room on an actual plane (taking flight from November 2019), The Riddle Within is also launching Chernobyl: 10 seconds to midnight, based on the HBO drama which will take place from Jan 2020.
Both Escape Rooms by The Riddle Within are in London for 3 months only before they move to their next location around the UK.
Set in the grounds of Greenwich venue Studio 338, a real decommissioned jet plane has been shipped in and offers a thrilling experience perfect for families, team bonding and fun with friends. The immersive storyline will start with participants donning prisoner garments and handcuffs, before boarding the plane.
“After years on the straight and narrow, your past has finally come back to haunt you.
Once one of the most feared gangs in the USA, responsible for some of the most audacious and daring robberies in the country’s history, time has mellowed your crew and retirement has been pretty uneventful.
That is until a shadowy figure from your ‘less law-abiding days’ reappears to take revenge
You have been framed, found guilty, sentenced and given your shady past that sentence is a tough one. Life to be exact. Life in one of the world’s highest security prisons.
So now you find yourselves thrust back together with the old faces. Faces you last saw obscured by balaclavas and in the midst of a high speed pursuit many years ago….faces that bring back memories of the old ways. Old ways you will need more than ever if you are to escape into the sunset and finally disappear
You are being readied for transportation on board prisoner shipping plane: Flight 338, but there is one member of the gang they didn’t find. He has caused a disruption at the airstrip and left some things on board which you might just find useful, but is everything quite as it seems?
The Riddle within brings you the world’s first ever escape room which takes place on a real life plane!
Find the clues, solve the puzzles, overcome obstacles and work together with your loyal crew to make good your get away, there isn’t much time.”
