We went to The Crystal Maze Manchester feeling confident, but once the clock started ticking and the audience started watching, the adrenaline hit.
The immersive experience takes inspiration from one of the nation’s favourite TV shows, and we had to complete a series of tasks as a team – which was loads of fun.

Overall, we’d definitely recommend giving the experience a visit as it was a good laugh!
We were separated into groups of around six people and we each got about two and a half tasks each on average, taking the total amount of tasks up to about fifteen for us all to complete as a team.
