Rutland escape room One Way Out offers a game to play at home during lockdown

An escape room creator has branched out to offer a play-at-home game for families needing a new source of entertainment.

Leisure and entertainment businesses are likely to be some of the last to reopen after lockdown.

With escape fans unable to visit One Way Out in Oakham, owner Tessa Angell is taking her latest challenge on the road.

The Lost Traveller challenges players to get into a rucksack rather than out of a room.

The gamed starts when a bag is found in the woods. Players must access the pockets, crack the codes and unlock its secrets in order to reunite the lost traveller with his bag.

Tessa said: "I think it will be popular with family groups who are going crazy at home."

The game was originally created last year with the aim of hiring it out for birthday parties and corporate events.

At the time Tessa never imagined it would help the business during lockdown.

Tessa delivers the rucksack and instructions to the players' home and gives a doorstep briefing.

She will then sit outside in her car and link up with the players via Zoom to oversee the game and give guidances as she would in a normal escape room.

The challenge lasts 70 minutes and costs £50. At the end players put everything back in the bag for Tessa to collect and clean.
