A brand-new Robin Hood themed escape room has been officially opened by the Sheriff of Nottingham, Cllr Patience Ifediora, and Robin Hood, local tour guide Ade Andrews a.k.a. Ezekial Bone.
Escapologic, the escape rooms based on Nottingham’s Castle Gate, has recently unveiled its latest escape room concept, named Robin of Lockskey – one of its most ambitious and daring rooms yet.
The Sheriff of Nottingham and Robin Hood cut the ribbon on Tuesday 16th July 2019, officially opening the new room to the public.
The concept of the room promises to take players from the modern day to the mysterious middle ages and back again. The Sheriff of Nottingham has been kidnapped, and the kidnappers are demanding the fabled golden arrow of Robin Hood as a ransom. Players must search the private office of the Sheriff to find the arrow, uncovering hidden secrets, cracking ancient codes and solving elaborate puzzles.
“After establishing Escapologic just 4 years ago, we are very proud to launch our eighth and final room, Robin of Lockskey. We feel immensely privileged to have the endorsement and collaboration of the actual Sheriff!”
“I’m incredibly proud of this room, and I sincerely hope it serves Nottingham proud. As someone who has grown up with the legend, it means very much to me to deliver this room. I hope to inspire the next generation with the same imagination that Nottingham and Robin Hood has given to me.”
Alex Broughton, Marketing and Communications Manager at Visit Nottinghamshire, said:
“As the tourist board, we are very supportive of Robin Hood themed activities and venues in Nottinghamshire. It helps to strengthen our cultural identity, ensures that visitors can experience the legend of Robin Hood in a multitude of unique ways during their visit and ultimately helps to keep the legend alive for generations to come.”
“This latest escape room concept is a creative and adventurous twist on the ancient legend, bringing it well and truly into the modern day. Nottingham’s escape room scene is absolutely flourishing, with every new room seemingly more inventive than the last, and we look forward to seeing more brilliant escape rooms popping up across the city in the future.”
Local Robin Hood tour guide Ade Andrews, a.k.a. Ezekial Bone, said:
“Robin Hood is a global icon whose story has been told in different ways by societies across the world for centuries, and it is great to see this latest creative re-interpretation of the legend by Escapologic bringing it firmly into the present day.”
“This Robin Hood themed escape room will offer a unique way for people to experience the legend for themselves, alongside other world-class tourist attractions in the region such as the Robin Hood Town Tour, the National Justice Museum, the new visitor centre at Sherwood Forest and the Nottingham Castle when it re-opens in 2020, and I am optimistic that it will inspire them to find out more about this world-famous character.”
