Well, as soon as this game appeared, there was absolutely no doubt in my mind that the addicts would be playing this specific game, 90 minutes long, especially when coupled with live actors! ( N.B. Bad Clown is now called Mr. Chuckles FunHouse – Bad Clown, and they have a non – live actor, less scary game, at 60 minutes long called Mr Chuckles FunHouse).
From the website:
Would you like to play a game?
Mr Chuckles has got one that he’s made especially for you! It’s no ordinary game, Mr Chuckles doesn’t like ordinary games, his are designed to trick, torment and terrify you.
Once you enter his horrific fun house you’ll be at his mercy and only the bravest contestants will survive.
You have 90 minutes to open the exit door and leave after collecting as many golden tickets as you can find or win. There are also other bonus items you can exchange for tickets at the end of your game to help you secure a place on the leader board.
Not only will you need to be brave, you’ll need to be lucky too, as you’re invited to play Mr Chuckles games of chance. When you solve the final puzzle will you escape with your lives or stay longer to find more golden tickets? Is that a gamble you’re willing to take?
For those unlucky enough to be trapped as the final seconds tick by, Mr Chuckles has one last surprise up his sleeve. He needs to clear the fun house ready for his next players and the fastest way to do it is to flush the place out with an acid shower.
Death comes quickly to those that are left behind!
The one other bit that appealed to me specifically…
- Darkness, enclosed spaces, live actors & panic inducing scenarios are all part of this game.
So not only do we get to play a late night escape game, but with the fun noted above, this was going to be amazing.
However, I’m not going to comment on the escape itself. The live acting was damn impressive, each room was spot on, the risk/rewards for the golden tickets was done very well, and the variety of the games superb. What sets this room apart, for me, is twofold. The introduction, which I imagined was going to be good ( going off the previous 2 rooms), was absolutely exceptional ( no spoilers though so tough!!). Secondly, and this nearly made me forget the introduction, was that it was just bloody good fun. A lot of the time we seemed to spend was not escaping, but enjoying ourselves, and I’m going to assume that this is a huge part of the game itself.
As for the result, we escaped with 60 golden tickets, as unfortunately, the games of chance did not fall our way ( and tbh, we missed a fair amount as well!)
A huge congratulations to Elaine, Mike and the team for yet again surpassing expectations and going above and beyond at every step of the journey.
