The Crystal Maze LIVE Experience review
1990 to 1995 was the heyday of The Crystal Maze, Channel 4’s quirky game show on at tea time. If you don’t remember the Crystal Maze it’s a game show which takes place across four zones: Medieval, Aztec, Futuristic and Industrial.
Contestants in a team take on a different game (mental, mystery, physical and skill) to try and win a crystal. Each crystal you win gets them a precious five seconds in the Crystal Dome. More of which later. It also had an epic theme tune. You can get individual tickets, but really this is much more fun as a group.
It’s very authentic to the original show. There is your very own ‘Maze Master’ who does his best Richard O’Brien impression. All the zones are there with the theme music playing as you climb over and under things between them. Mumsy is always watching.
The games themselves are exactly like the ones on the show. Only funnier because your teammate is trying whilst others shout incoherent instructions through the windows, or harder because you are yourself trying to work something out in very limited time. As with the TV series you can get locked in – but you’re released immediately for a crystal or if you solve a puzzle in the same zone (which isn’t hard).
At the end is the Crystal Dome. Every hard-won crystal gets you a measly five seconds in the Dome – in which you have to grab as many gold tickets as possible while the dome’s fans blast them around you. The team with the most gold tickets wins (no prizes just pride).
The Crystal Maze LIVE Experience is open to anyone aged 13 and over who are 1.2 metres or taller. If you are under 18, you will need a playing and full paying adult on your team!
