Looking for something different this half term?
Can you believe that the half term break is approaching already!?! You’re probably thinking ‘what will I do with them’, ‘how will I amuse them and save my soul?’. Perhaps you need to work for an hour and need to distract them, or maybe get them off their mobile phones and do something fun with them.
Yes, you could visit the endless list of normal London half term activities like the London Eye or the usual round of museums like the London Transport Museum or Natural History Museum, but surely you want to make this half term more appealing…
Family review: Fantastic afternoon at Fox in a Box Dalston. We went to celebrate my 8 year old daughter’s birthday, and she and her friends had a brilliant time. Sara and Hillary were great at looking after us, and were generous with the clues when we really needed them, thank goodness!
What do we have to offer?
For families travelling to or around London this coming school holiday, we will be offering a truly immersive and thrilling experience; we are not as ghastly as the Tower of London or as gruesome as the London Dungeon, but we will surely get your spine-tingling. You have already covered everything from history to art, culture to science this year, so now it is time for something different, and we pride ourselves on raising the bar when it comes to London half term activities.
Here at Fox in a Box, you and your gang will be involved in real-life physical games where players are 'locked' in a room with the pressure rising as the clock ticks away for 60 minutes. You will need to come together as a group to use the elements provided to solve a series of puzzles, find clues and escape!
Family review: I took a group of six 12 year olds for a birthday celebration, and wasn't sure what to expect. But the staff were super friendly and helpful, the escape room (zodiac killer) was great fun and we all had a brilliant time. Definitely recommended.
Everyone is guaranteed to have a good time with Mr Fox, and you will talk about your successful escape for years to come - it will be an encounter that your family will never forget. The best thing about our escape rooms is that we cater to your group's ability, meaning all our games can be played by people of all ages; they will never be too difficult or too easy.
Our Escape Rooms
Mr Fox has the most fun, immersive and challenging escape games London has to offer every half term, where imagination and engaging sets have been cunningly combined. Our dedicated team of experts will provide you with thrilling tips and heart-stopping hints throughout, to bring you an amazing one-off experience.
The Prison Break scenario will have your group working together through an exhilarating escape experience, where they will face tough challenges navigating through top level security. If you are coming with a large group, Prison Break Head to Head is the ideal choice as it runs with 7-12 players working against each other in two rooms.
Family review: Great experience as a family, we loved the whole hour or so that we were there from the moment the door was opened. We did the jail break which was great fun and interactive. We had three children with us who all contributed equally to us completing the game and ultimately meaning we didn’t appear on the hall of shame! Well done fox in a box, go team basfamrox! We will be back
The Zodiac Killer is the ideal game for first time players. You know the instant the door slams behind you that bad things could happen if you do not escape in time – will your crew escape his clutches, or will they be added to his list of victims?
The Bunker is the toughest of all our rooms. Your bunch will be put into a nuclear bunker at the exact moment a launch sequence is initiated. They will need to work together to figure out how to take control of this nuclear disaster, and save the world!
Family review: What a great experience. The whole family enjoyed the experience. This is the first time I’ve been and will definitely visit again. The clues were subtle and encouraged us to use our brain power and we laughed our way throughout. I would highly recommend this Fox in a Box if you’re looking for a family bonding experience.
All our scenarios are suitable for children 8+; parents and guardians just call or email beforehand in order to custom tailor each experience to ensure maximum satisfaction, so your kids can walk away with an immersive experience they’ll never forget. Children aged 14 and under must have at least one adult present in the room. Under 18's must have an adult sign the waiver on their behalf but the adult does not need to be present in the room.
What are you waiting for – book today!
London is a magical place with so much to see and with lots of family friendly activities that can keep kids entertained, but you need to ditch these. No more visits to Buckingham Palace or trips to the theatre to see the Lion King. Fox in a Box is THE perfect location to forget about the world for a couple hours while you suspend yourselves in a totally immersive experience.
Remember, the weather can be dire around this time of year so forget visiting Greenwich Park, Hyde Park or the Royal Parks – we are open whatever the weather, and we’re the most enthralling place to spend the half term holiday. And if you take them one more time to ZSL London Zoo, they will want to escape, so you might as well bring them to us where they will have to escape… with their lives!
What are you waiting for? Mr Fox is ready to give you the best of all London half-term activities...
