Where it all Began!
Bermondsey and Hackney, London, UK
The Escapist was the very first Modern Fables Escape Room and was located in a dingy old warehouse in South Bermondsey, London. The Escapist was designed and built on a shoestring budget with self-built electronics, puzzles and sound design. It was a modest game but put Modern Fables on the map as being able to create extremely immersive, narrative-driven escape rooms that could compete with the best of them. In fact, we lost count of the number of customers that told us The Escapist was their favourite escape game!
