Wirral Escape Rooms – Christmas Confusion
The Team: TDM, Mr Carrot, JM
Santa has selected you and your fellow elves to take the prestigious “Christmas Confusion” examination.
Set in the “Living Room 1.0 simulation” – you have 1 hour to complete the puzzles, find the presents and pass your examination, what grade will you get?
It may have only been November, but we donned our Santa hats with no sense of embarrassment and whizzed up the Wirral to Wallasey to be warmly welcomed with the genuine enthusiasm that we’d received from Amy and Ian at Wirral Escape Rooms on our previous visit.
We had a quick chat, but then as were keen to get stuck in, we soon found our merry selves transported to a cosy living room decked out with all the holiday trimmings.
A brief hunt around revealed a few things which set us off in the right direction, and soon led to a good variety of seasonally themed puzzles and tasks including an opportunity for a bit of fun playing with an actual toy to make progress.
From simple substition codes, observational requirements, logic based tasks, and even a musically themed puzzle (which I always love) there was a good mix of family friendly fun to keep all entertained. I think ‘family’ is one of the key words here too as it felt as though the room had maybe been designed with this in mind and therefore was slightly on the easier end of the difficulty scale. We certainly found ourselves making good headway right from the start which is unusual for us, and managed to finish in a really quick time…
Well, a quick time for us anyway.
Christmas Confusion is a seasonal room set up just for the festive period, but don’t let that make you think it’s any less of a great experience. We learned last year when we made a Christmas Eve trip to Lakes Escapes up in Cumbria that temporary rooms can be just as much fun as permanent ones, and the team at Wirral Escape Rooms years of experience made sure that this was also the case here.
I do feel a little guilty for taking so long to get this written up as at the time of publishing the room is currently not available, but fingers crossed it will see a return every year as it certainly deserves to be out there again.
Ho ho ho, loads of fun.
