The Big Escape is bringing a live outdoor event to Liverpool


An interactive outdoor escape experience launched in Liverpool just weeks before lockdown is going live in the city later this year – 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 still following social distancing rules.

The event 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 the city centre turned into a giant playground 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 Live said:

“We’ve made a number of changes to ensure people can play the game safely.

“After months of being in lockdown, we wanted to do something to bring people back into the city centre 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.”

Tickets cost £44 per team (a maximum of 6 people) with the organisers offering free tickets to NHS workers for the event which takes place on Saturday 3rd October and starts from the Queen Victoria monument.

All NHS workers need to do is go to Facebook and “like” The Big Escape and send a message with their ID.

More information on how to play the game can be found here.
