True Terror on its way to Sheffield!

Now that we have First Contact and The Mysterious Case of Hugh Dunnitt escape rooms here at Cryptology Sheffield we think it is time to bring true terror to West Street.

Cryptology believes that with First Contact escape room ticking the box for choose your own path’ space adventure and The Mysterious Case of Hugh Dunnitt escape room taking you on a murder mystery tour with a difference. It is time that Cryptology Escape Rooms delved into the murky world of truly terrifying HORROR! 

What Kind of Escape Room is it Going to be?

This experience will be more than just a scare-fest – in true escape room tradition, puzzles will be throughout your hour. But will you dare complete them all?

Set in a secret private lab where they test the latest and greatest (most of the time) in neural gadgets. This latest test involves your team and you are here to be a lab rat for a new neural implant. Unfortunately, they need to test this implant to its extremes and that means it will play on your fears. Don’t worry though, they almost never have issues during these tests, in fact 60% of the time it works every time.

Where And When?

This new live escape room experience will be based out of our West Street location in the centre of Sheffield, next to Tescos Extra and up the road from Pizza Express. This will be Cryptology Sheffield’s third immersive escape room experience and we hope to continue the high levels we have achieved so far.

Sheffield Eateries As An Outsider

The Lucky Fox Sheffield

I have visited Sheffield a handful of times in my adult life, and having worked in Barnsley for 7 years knew that it was the most likely place that I would live, if I moved to South Yorkshire.

Now, with opening my third branch of Cryptology Escape Rooms, I have seen much more of the Steel City and in this blog, I will discuss the places around Cryptology Sheffield where I have eaten and enjoyed!

The Devonshire

One of the first places I ate in Sheffield, on passing they were doing BOGOF breakfasts. We visitied, both had Croque Monsieur AND creamed mushrooms. It was excellent value for money, but we didn’t need both… EACH.

“Birdcage” (Frog & Parrot)

“Birdcage” Eatery & Drinkery

I am not sure why I went in here for the first time, but being a music fan, I loved the records on the ceilings and walls. There’s also odd birdcages that you sit in, not massively convenient for eating and drinking, but novel all-the-same. However, the food, particularly for a standard chain from Greene King is excellent! 

The Lucky Fox

Some deliciousness from The Lucky Fox

In a meeting with an HSBC Business Account Manager, he mentioned of a place which is basically “KFC on crack”. It’s a tiny place, you may be lucky to get a seat, however, the food is indeed streets ahead of Colonel Sanders’, not to be missed!

Forum Sheffield

Banging burgers 'til 9pm, and up to 50% off on Mondays
Burger @ The Forum

First of all, the in-house beers are varied and great! We came pretty much every Monday for their BOGOF burger deal, however they changed their menu and the burger were really not the same. They may have changed these again, but we cannot confirm. They also have a pizza bar where you can buy a giant slice! It’s pretty decent, but Frog & Parrot wins hands-down.

What’s Next?

There’s a few more places we have been, but these tend to be chains (Revolucion De Cuba is worthy of mention), but are keen to further explore what culinary treats Sheffield has to offer!
