MISSION 15 has been launched by The Real Escape in Portsmouth and offers three players the chance to take part in a puzzle concept with 15 minutes to save the lives of their fellow agents before the enemy moves in.

The centre, which was the first of its kind in the Solent area, has seen thousands of perplexed visitors through its mysterious doors since its launch at the start of 2016 with teams taking part in various escape scenarios.

Managing Director Andras Szabo said: '˜Escape rooms have gone from strength to strength since we launched almost three years ago and our hour-long games for up to six players remain incredibly popular.

'˜However we wanted to offer something new for players who wanted a different kind of challenge or wanted to try out the escape room experience for the first time, or perhaps struggled to get a larger team together.'

He added: '˜This kind of 15-minute game is a new concept and gives players a fast and frantic challenge with the ticking down of the clock adding real drama.

'˜It's fast enough to be played in a lunch hour or before going out for drinks after work.'

Games can be played from December 5 and are £15 per team and on completion teams will be offered 15 per cent discount to play any other room at The Real Escape.

 From January 1, the pricing will be £15 for two players and £18 for three players, with weekend prices at £16 for two players and £20 for three.

The minimum age to take part is 14 and at least half of the team must be aged 18 over.
