The Lost Passenger

In 1924, South Kentish Town tube station was closed down. Shortly after this, a train stopped there mistakenly and a passenger got off. As the train drove off, Mr Brackett disappeared into the darkness. No one knows if he ever escaped and so became the story of The Lost Passenger.

The urban legend of the lost passenger has been circulating for some time now. Recently though, there has been paranormal activity noted in the station and we have been recruited to investigate.

This is the story behind Mission Breakout’s newest escape room, aptly called The Lost Passenger*.

Fully equipped in high vis and hard hats we were lead to the lift to make our way down to the station. It was one of the more tricky escape rooms that I’ve tackled. The heat and cramped conditions definitely don’t make it any easier. We took on this room as a team of six and although, the suggested group size is three to six I’d definitely suggest that four would be a better size. We found that sometimes a few of us were standing around doing nothing or we couldn’t get involved to help because there wasn’t enough space.

Other than that though I really enjoyed it. Even if I was melting by the end of it. The challenges we were faced with were very tailored to the story, meaning it wasn’t all padlocks and key codes. It definitely meant that we had to get the grey matter working a little bit harder. Which is never a bad thing!

I’m pleased to say that, even despite a few fumbles with the final lock, we got out with a few minutes to spare. We’re definitely getting good at these things!

The Lost Passenger from Mission Breakout is £28 per person. I highly recommend it if you’re after a unique escape room experience.
