North London venue, The Depot are excited to announce the launch of their partnership with Handmade Mysteries, offering betrothed thrill seekers the world’s first immersive ‘Crystal Maze’ style wedding reception experience.

Tucked away in this bus depot warehouse conversion are two explosive game rooms run by Handmade Mysteries, where wedding guests will have the opportunity to dive into the world of the totally immersive theatre experience, reviewed as Critics Choice in Time Out and quoted as “Crystal Maze On Meth”. The experience features a story introduced by the game-host ‘Wynne’, where personal stories from the Bride and Groom’s past may be weaved in. Guests will be enticed away in groups of 2 – 9, where they must work as a team in order to escape and rejoin their fellow wedding goers.
