World’s largest escape game challenges players to exit prison into outside world

A former prison is hosting the world's largest escape game.

Players will be challenged with puzzles and hidden clues set among the four-acre grounds.

Shrewsbury Prison in Shropshire opened its doors to inmates back in 1793, but was decommissioned in 2013.

But now you will be able to step inside the grounds to see if you've got what it takes to escape a real prison.

If this sounds like something you'd enjoy, tickets are now on sale for the "Prison Break" game.

It takes place every first and third weekend of the month from May 22.

And tickets cost just £54 per person for a two-and-a-half hour game.

The website said: "Are you up for the challenge?

"You've seen the films, you've seen the TV series, now it's time to put yourself to the test and see if you have what it takes to break out of a real prison in the world's largest escape game.

"It's an opportunity to test your wits and skills."

The experience is suitable for people aged 12 and over, although any contestants under 15 must be accompanied by a full-paying adult.

On its website, it added: "As you're inducted into prison life, you will confess your crimes and be processed into the prison – 'you no longer have a name just a number'.

"From here you will receive your standard issue orange jumpsuits and escorted to the main wing before being placed into your prison cell.

"Now the game begins, you have to escape your cell and figure out how to get off the landing in a bid to prove your innocence."

You can either work alone or in collaboration with others to "devise a way to escape from the prison wing".
