A slightly different review this time. Given the story we were going to be “testers” for Marvo’s new site, my boyfriend and I turned up very excited.
We explored the new site which has been created fantastically, with all hand made probs. It is a real labour of love. The escape room was also even better than before with tweaks making it more immersive and the game itself flows even more smoothly.
Towards the end of the game, where an item is supposed to be retrieved, the item turned out to be a ring!! My boyfriend’s face came on the screen with a prerecorded message, still in with the theme of the game. He got down on one knee and of course, I said yes. I then had the option of sending the ring or the empty box back down the tube.
The most surreal part was having to them complete the last few minutes of the escape room – I was in a complete daze.
When we exited the room, my family were in the lobby and we were greeted with balloons and fizz.
An experience like no other and the first escape room proposal in Bournemouth – we even made the Echo!
I am fully aware that this is a completely geeky way to get engaged but completely captured us as a couple. It was personal, unique and so much fun!
A huge thank you to the Marvo owners for all their hard work. It was amazing to get engaged and it was also amazing to have an escape room personalised to us!
