In a forgotten warehouse in South Bermondsey – South London, Lavinia Carter runs her bar ‘The Escapist’, once a lively part of the local arts scene. Rumours and strange occurrences have led to Lavinia and her bar to being shunned. Her behaviour becomes ever more erratic and now Lavinia herself seems to have gone missing.
Lavinia’s sense of adventure has always been strong, with her travelling the world at a moment’s notice. However, her trips have been getting more frequent and secretive since she has been uncovering strange truths about her late grandfather.
Lavinia’s long-term friend Alfie has asked you to help get the bar back to it’s former glory while she’s away on her latest trip. Will your curiosity lead you to snoop around when he isn’t looking..? What is Lavinia up to..? What happened to her grandfather..?
You have an hour to play this Escape Room where every puzzles tells a piece of the story. Lead your team to find clues, solve puzzles and uncover Lavinia’s secrets. This Escape Game is for teams of between 2 and 5 people and is based in South Bermondsey, just one stop from London Bridge station in South London.
Don’t be afraid to play The Escapist if you are particularly timid, Alfie will look after you and make sure you come to no harm. If this is your first escape room, you can always ask for more help to see you through.
Modern Fables is South London’s truly immersive escape room experience where every puzzle tells the story.
We set ourselves apart from other Escape Rooms by creating site-specific, story-led games focussed on immersing players in unique sensory stories. We use urban legends as our source material so it is not known how much of the stories are actually true… that’s up to you to decide.
Step into Modern Fables’ first Escape Room, The Escapist.
Is the game scary?
Our escape game is not designed to be scary but is spooky in places and created to be atmospheric. There are no scare tactics used and nobody will jump out on you so don’t be put off if you think you are easily scared!
How difficult is this escape game?
The Escapist by Modern Fables is designed to be played by 2 – 5 adults within 60 minutes. Therefore, The Escapist has a difficulty rating of Medium. None of the puzzles need factual knowledge from outside the game so there’s no need to have a degree in astrophysics or be the world pub-quiz champion to take part. In fact, you’ll bring in skills that may indeed show your pub quiz friends they aren’t so smart after all! That being said though, it’s still a game so some may find it easier than others… there’s no guarantee you’ll win!
Will we be safe during the game?
You can ask for help or assistance at any time during the game. A Games Master will be monitoring you at all times and they’ll make sure you’re safe. That being said though, as with anything, it’s important you engage common sense as you would in any situation! You are never actually locked in a room and can leave whenever you want.
What if I am late?
Because this is a live event game it is vital that you arrive 10 minutes before your booking to ensure that you are not late. Those that arrive late cannot be admitted as it may spoil the experience for others. Unfortunately, we cannot accept refunds or cancellations.
Is there anything else I should worry about?
The game contains flashing lights, dim lighting and a brief run-in with a fairly confined space. Please do get in touch if any of these aspects are a concern for you. Please note that some puzzles include written English.
