Head-scratching and body bending challenges to conquer

Time Out Says

Many attractions either aspire to be, or compare themselves to, a new version of classic TV show The Crystal Maze. TEPfactor, an attraction just off The Walk in JBR, may be of a similar ilk, but it doesn’t try to rely on nostalgia. Nor does it need to, TEPfactor is a brilliantly original escape room-meets-adventure challenge concept that will test your wits, skill and athleticism in a series of brainteasers, obstacles and more.

Be prepared to break a sweat. A stroll in the park, this is not, so get your trainers on, don your gym shorts and stretch thoroughly before you get going.

We’re only slightly joking, too, because each room is based on one of four broad categories: fitness, patience, logic and skill. Think tyre swings, rope climbs, agility tests and a range of other clambering-related conundrums that will have you simultaneously sweating and head-scratching your way through them.

While you might need between three and four hours to make your way round every obstacle, when you’re reflecting on your game while on your way home, you’ll be yearning for more levels to take on.

And you have to solve them all to get out. Think you’ve got the skills?
