I was very excited when my Manager invited me to our team building event at the Crystal Maze. I was a huge fan of the show in the 90s. I also worried this might be a let down, and shatter my views of the show. But this was a fear I did not have to live as a reality.
The location is great- just a 2 min walk from Angel tube station, and as soon as you come in, you start to think if you are in the right place. However, once you put on the famous jackets for the photo opps at the start, it all starts to sink in. You do not wear these for the activities and games themselves, as it is really warm down there.
All the games are in the original shows, but this doesn't give you an advantage. It looks and feels just like you are in the TV show. Your guide is brilliant, as they take you through the zones.
Our team won 7 crystals but suffered 2 lock ins so went back to 5 crystals. This meant 25 seconds in the dome.
The dome itself is incredible and didn't disappoint. They are very hot on cheating, and a few of the teams got disqualified for cheating in the dome, so watch out.
I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a fun and different team event, and also for fans of the show. You must go soon, and the cost is very good value for money, considering the amount of work that has gone into recreating the Crystal Maze.
