An Epic “Sherlock” Escape Room Is Opening in London

London is finally getting a Sherlock escape room and we can’t wait to get in (and out of) there. The new “Sherlock: The Game is Now” escape room is coming to London this December, offering a 90-minute experience that fully immerses visitors in BBC One’s Sherlock’s very own 221B Baker Street. Making this room even more special, the puzzle and story have been designed by Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss, the writers behind the BBC series.

While the details of the story won’t be revealed until the room opens, players can expect to be swept up in a Sherlock-esque mystery. Sherlock himself has gone missing amid a series of break-ins in London, and players must figure out what’s going on, assisting an international web of spies called The Network. The show’s cast, including Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman, will also be on board to help you, in the form of pre-recorded video and audio sequences.

Tickets are priced at $70 per person. Although the December games are already sold out, you can reserve through May 2019, and you’ll probably want to book early. You can also choose to add a post-game afternoon tea, including sandwiches, scones, and desserts.

For more information about the room, and to book your ticket, visit the official website.
