in Entertainment, Movies, Star Wars, Theater

Manchester “Star Wars” fans can find that the force is strong in their city. A brand new “Star Wars” themed escape room is now open, at Bowlers Exhibition Center in Trafford Park, Trafford, Manchester, England.

Inspired by the infamous galactic gathering spot in Mos Eisley on Tatooine, this Cantina is the backdrop for an hour long adventure in a galaxy far, far away.

UPDATE: 7/2/2018 ITM has been informed that the Cantina Space Bar is under new management.  While the “grumpy bartender” is still there to greet space travelers, making reservations for this galactic experience is achieved by connecting to their website.

Infusing experiences with film quality props and interactive characters, moviESCAPE, along with science fiction convention “For the Love of Sci-Fi” have created an immersive hour long escape the room challenge

Theme park worthy sets and intergalactic intrigue help set the stage for the new space saga centered experience:

“After the destruction of an Imperial Warship important cargo was left drifting through space. This cargo contained vital information and plans on the Imperial Armies latest weapon. You have one hour to recover these plans before you are captured.  Your only help is the grumpy Cantina bartender… but is he who he says he is?” –moviESCAPE Room website.

The company created a few horror themed rooms to coincide with the fast approaching Halloween season.  With the addition of the “Star Wars” inspired adventure, moviESCAPE will soon be adding even more family friendly escape excitement.  A Harry Potter inspired “Merlin’s Magic Academy” is currently on the drawing board.

“moviESCAPE rooms have been designed and built from scratch by movie makers. Each room has a unique design that matches its story. The props in our rooms have been custom made by industry professionals that have worked on major blockbuster movies including; Harry Potter, Avengers, World” –moviESCAPE FAQ pageWar Z, Pandora and countless other blockbusters.
