A new interactive outdoor escape experience is coming to Coventry and Leicester next month with free tickets on offer for NHS workers. The Big Escape Live has been created so that hundreds can play the GPS activated game while social distancing and following the rule of six.

The events scheduled for October will see groups of up to six people playing against each other with a leaderboard updated in real time giving those taking part a competitive edge.

The gaming experience sees both city centres turned into giant playgrounds with teams solving puzzles, cracking codes and completing challenges to take down Big Al’s casino in a classic heist.

Mark French from The Big Escape said: “We had such a great time in Birmingham earlier this month we wanted to offer other people in the Midlands the chance to enjoy this unique gaming experience. After months of being in lockdown, we hope this brings people back into our city centres to have fun and maybe spend money in the shops and restaurants.”

“The game can be played anytime as tickets are valid for 6 months but the idea of The Big Escape Live is that teams will play on the same day creating a buzz around the city – especially if they’re also in fancy dress which is optional! It’s a fun and safe outdoor atmosphere for people of all ages to enjoy.”

The live events take place on 24th October in Coventry and Leicester. Tickets cost £44 per team (a maximum of 6 people) with the organisers offering free tickets to NHS workers- all NHS workers need to do is go to Facebook and “like” The Big Escape and send a message with their ID.
