  • Get ready to experience the much-loved and outrageously popular '90s hit show The Crystal Maze in real life 3D with your family!
  • Dive into four thrilling zones, including industrial, futuristic, medieval and Aztec, where you will test your skills, crack codes and take part in physical challenges.
  • The immersive experience in London and Manchester Is 75 minutes long and is suitable for everybody aged 13 and over.

Were you a fan of '90s show The Crystal Maze back in the day with legendary presenter Richard O’Brien? Now is your chance to see if you can complete the challenges against the clock with your family! How many crystals will you be able to win?

The Crystal Maze Live Experience Is a live, immersive 75-minute team game, where team players complete physical, mental, mystery and skill challenges to collect crystals. Venture through four brilliant themed adventure zones (industrial, futuristic, medieval and Aztec) with your own personal maze master guide. Kids and adults alike will love running from zone to zone whilst the Crystal Maze theme tune plays!  

The challenges themselves are approximately 2-3 minutes and must be done by an individual team member. You will get to test your skills, crack some codes, solve a mystery and challenge your physical ability whilst racing against the clock to win the crystal. With each crystal you earn, you will be given five seconds more in the Crystal Dome final - where your whole team will try and collect as many golden tokens as possible. Just a warning, but grabbing golden tickets in the Crystal Dome is much harder than it looks!

You may be surprised to hear that the Crystal Maze Manchester is different to the Crystal Maze London with entirely different games. Both locations are great, which means now you've got a reason to go twice. The new Kitchen Pot game in Manchester in particular is always a hit with visitors. The Crystal Maze Experience differs from other escape rooms in Manchester and London as games take about twice the time and are more varied. Are you ready for the ultimate team challenge experience? Don your satin bomber jacket and get ready to earn some crystals.

If you are looking for more great immersive experiences in London, Sherlock: The Game Is Now is a 100-minute immersive Sherlock Holmes escape room experience, while War of the Worlds: The Immersive Experience is great for thrill-seeking teens.
