Ever wanted to play in the Crystal Maze?
Crystal Maze attraction announced for a March 15 opening in London!
Anyone growing up in the 1990s will remember the Crystal Maze. Richard O’Brien running around four different worlds, directing a team of friends in their quest to grab crystals with the ultimate goal being the appearance in the Crystal Dome at the end of the show.
It ran for five or more years in the original format on Channel 4, and was brought into our newsfeeds again earlier this year when it was revealed that a trio of friends were crowdsourcing to try and get enough money to recreate the show for the public to play.
It has been announced today that the three men - Ben Hodges, 29, Dean Rodgers, 25, and Tom Lionetti-Maguire, 28 - have raised just under £1m and are now set to build the replica.
Social Media has been buzzing this morning with the news, and I’ve seen this image shared more times that I care to mention:
Apparently it has taken six months to develop and a site has been secured for the venue near Kings Cross, London.
Tickets are already on sale costing £50 each and can be bought from the official website though that seems to be having problems coping with traffic volumes as I write this!
I think it’s a great idea and is going to make a great day out for a group of friends. It does seem a little on the expensive side, however, and I think that the price per person will put many people off.
However, as a one-off it could be great fun for anyone who spent many an evening wondering how on earth a group of people on tv could struggle so badly with seemingly simple tasks!
