Aim Escape: London’s naughtiest escape game

Have you ever seen the movie ‘The Hangover’?  Well, last week I found myself in a very similar situation at Aim Escape’s ‘Hangover de ja brew’.  The groom had disappeared, and it was up to the Love Pop Up’s group to find him within 60 minutes!

WHAT IS AIM ESCAPE?

AIM Escape have deployed the latest tech-savvy and creative puzzles that both perplex and bamboozle those who take part.  Gone are the days of locks, combinations, and keys.  AIM offers a fully automated escape room experience, combining imagination, immersion, and technical ingenuity, making it the premium brand of choice.

Taking the escape room concept to a new level, players will experience a high level of involvement filled with extreme challenges, complex narratives, and hyper-realistic sets and props. Each escape room tells a unique story that needs unravelling, and contains mysteries that need solving, in order for players to earn their freedom.

Aim Escape has 4 rooms available, that range from medium to difficult: Psychopath’s Den, Spy Heroes, Hangover Deja Brew, and Patient Zero 2150.  We reviewed Hangover Deja Brew; an over 18 experience for pleasure seeking adults.

OUR EXPERIENCE

Just like the movie, the scene is set as the morning after a turbo-charged stag party.  A hotel room filled with empty bottles, underwear, handcuffs, and a huge wedding cake, makes up London’s most debaucherous escape room.

Obviously, I cannot give too much away in terms of the challenges themselves, but it was definitely one of the most entertaining and fun escape rooms I have been a part of.  The puzzles ranged in difficulty, with a couple of frustrating challenges earlier on, and the last room being particularly easy.  This allowed us to make up for the time we had lost on previous puzzles. Most of the challenges were of a sexual nature and I was worried the whole concept would be overly tacky or cheesy, but AIM Escape happened to get the balance just right, bringing a lot of playfulness and humour to the game.

Working as a group, we managed to piece together the events of the night before and escape the room in 49 minutes and 51 seconds.  This is actually the fastest time I have ever completed an escape game before so I was very proud of myself and the team.

At the end of the game, Hangover deja brew offers something completely different – a scenario type exercise.  They played us a series of videos in order for us to get to know the bride and groom in more detail, giving us the power to cancel the wedding or put it back on track.  We made the decision to cancel the wedding – but I’ll leave you to find out why!

Overall, I really enjoyed this escape room and would particularly recommend it to those celebrating a hen weekend.  The room is risqué and light-hearted, with some imaginative puzzles and a lot of fun costumes and props that we took full advantage of. I’ll definitely be back to try another of their games!

    oh my gosh, this sounds fascinating. I live in a very small town and we don’t have anything like this here, but I wonder where the closest place would be, perhaps Portland.

    I love escape rooms in all formats! I’m actually hooked on a series of board games based on escape room experiences at the moment 🙂

    I’ll keep this in mind for the next time I’m in London. I’ll probably choose the same room as you, too.
