This weekend, Nobs ‘n Knockers is organising a Singles Escape Room Adventure Event.
An Escape Room is a popular group brain teaser activity. It involves a number of people (in this case, singles looking to meet new people) being locked in a room together to solve a series of puzzles and decipher clues in order to solve the mystery or complete the mission of that particular room.
Participants must complete all of the tasks and escape from the room within the 60 minute time limit to win. If you don’t manage to escape don’t worry, you’ll still be released at the end of 60 minutes.
The event will take place at WEESCAPE located on 1 The Haymarket, Smithfield, Dublin 7. Tickets are €40 each. Be sure to bring your printed ticket to the event.
Upon arrival, participants will be divided into teams of four to six players for each escape room.
After participants escape the room (or don’t) they’ll all walk a short distance to McGettigans Bar to enjoy drinks and hot nibbles, relax and get to know each other.
Starting time for the event is 3pm on Saturday, March 3. The group will walk to McGettigans Bar together at 4:15pm for refreshments and a chat, included in the price of the ticket.
Physical fitness is not a requirement but participants must be between the ages of 30 and 45. Nobs ‘n Knockers aims to have an even number of males and females but this is not guaranteed. Participants are asked to specify gender when purchasing tickets online.
According to their website, Nobs ‘n Knockers, “bring[s] like-minded singles together face to face in a relaxed, fun and friendly environment.
“Our events are… all about you coming along, getting to meet some new people while having a lot of laughs along the way. With all of the adventure activities thrown in it means there is no time to feel shy, awkward or self-conscious.
“It is easy for all participants to get involved for team activities yet, intimate enough that you get to chat with everyone throughout the day.”
Some of WEESCAPE Dublin’s Escape Room themes include solving a string of bizarre kidnappings and serial killings in “Taken”, deciphering the secrets of a murdered Louvre curator and secret society member in “Da Vinci Room” and stopping a mad scientist’s plot to blow up the Eiffel Tower and then the world in “Mission Impossible”.
