A 'Peaky Blinders' Escape Room Is Opening In The UK
In a collaboration between the show's producers and escape room experts Escape Live, the Peaky Blinders immersive experience will open its doors later this year, although the exact date is TBC.
In true Tommy Shelby-style, it will be located in Birmingham with plans to expand across the country if successful.
Escape Live announced it was working closely with Peaky Blinders producers, Endemol Shine Group, to develop content for the rooms so it's as true to the series as possible.
Jas Sodhi, managing director at Escape Live, said: "This is fantastic news for Peaky Blinders fans everywhere and we're looking forward to re-imagining this international drama phenomenon into a number of escape experiences.
"The first rooms will be coming to Birmingham soon and we can't wait for fans of the series to see what we have planned.
"We have acquired a new property which will be the home of the new experiences and we believe the character of that building fits the series perfectly.
"Peaky Blinders has been enjoyed by millions of viewers across the world, but it is only right that these experiences are brought to Birmingham first. We are working closely with Endemol Shine Group to develop content for the rooms and will be revealing more details over the next couple of months."
Peaky Blinders has been hugely popular with fans, who are eagerly awaiting series five to air on BBC One later this year following a record-breaking 4million-strong audience for series four.
An escape room is a mentally and physically challenging adventure game, in which players must solve a series of puzzles and riddles to complete tasks, although they can vary between each company or topic.
The exact escape scenario you and your own Shelby gang will be faced with is yet to be revealed, but installation is tipped to be arriving later this summer.
Jane Smith of Endemol Shine Group, added: "There is a huge appetite from audiences to take part in experiences based on the Peaky Blinders series and it is key for us to ensure that the official products and events live up to fans expectations.
"We are delighted to have teamed up with the experienced team at Escape Live who will bring the Peaky Blinders series to life and deliver an outstanding experience which will really wow players."
By order of the Peaky Blinders, we'll be attending this immediately when it opens it doors!
