Summers over and we wave a sorrowful goodbye to boozy beer-gardens, hang up our bumbags and set our clocks forward. In these chilly autumn months, how will we survive?

Thankfully, this is Manchester and we do things differently here. Based in Castlefield, Manchester resides the Crystal  Maze Experience. The phenomenal game show adored by millennials is now the playable adventure playground style extravaganza.

The fully interactive Crystal Maze Experience is identical to the challenges contestants faced on the TV game show – each challenge a test of either physical, mental or skilful/logical capability with an elusive mystery category thrown in.

Grab eight friends and battle against time in the crystal maze working through the four adventure time zones: Aztec, Industrial, Futuristic and Medieval zones, as seen on TV!

The Maze Master will guide you and your team as you allocate roles, games and challenges to each of them. Using your knowledge of your team-mates’ strengths you’ll combat to the final round – The Crystal Dome!

The Crystal Dome will be a whole team inclusive game where you’ll have to snatch as many flying golden tickets as you can!

The Crystal Maze Experience in Manchester is offering special student discounts and a Halloween special – dark maze.

Being the star of the show is hungry work, that’s why we’re offering excellent discounts this autumn to The Crystal Maze Experience customers at 20% off your food bill when you visit us before or after your game! Just 5 minutes walk from the site in Castlefield.

The Crystal Maze Experience is just one of many activities to do in central Manchester when it’s cold outside. There’s also an abundance of free activities available for groups of friends or families to enjoy.
