Tigers make a 'Great Escape'

Posted: Friday 4th May 2018 - 1:35 PM


The full first team squad and coaching staff headed off to try something new on Monday afternoon.

The Great Escape Game Leeds offer a live experience unlike any other. You enter a suspiciously normal looking building and are guided to the hidden bar area. As the doors open you find yourself in a hidden gem of Leeds city centre. In the bar area you can indulge in delicious handmade pizzas, room-themed cocktails and extravagant ice cream sundaes. If you want something a little more laid back, there’s also plenty retro Nintendo games and classic board and card games to choose from.

Then onto the main event, the live escape game itself! If you haven’t already heard about them, escape games are an immersive experience in which you and your team are locked in a room and must race against the clock to escape. The Great Escape Game Leeds offers five different rooms, from the family friendly King Arthur’s Secret to the 18+ horror game, Abducted.

Our Tigers spent an hour locked away with their team mates and the experience tested how they worked as a team to solve the puzzles and escape.

Once everyone escaped the team then headed on to Xscape Yorkshire for a team meal kindly provided by ASK Italian.

Speaking about the activity Castleford Tigers Director of Rugby Jon Wells said: “It’s always good to spend some time away from training to develop a team. The Great Escape Game Leeds provided us with a great opportunity to really put the boys out of their comfort zone and provided a fantastic experience full of fun and laughs along the way. To end the day with a team meal at ASK was great and we’d like to thank the brilliant staff at the Great Escape Game Leeds and ASK for looking after us all on Monday.”

Daniel Harris, Digital Marketing Executive at The Great Escape Room Leeds said: "It was a pleasure hosting the Tigers, they proved they have both brains and brawn!'
