A new real-life adventure game could take place within the Mill in Aqueduct Street.Advertisement
Plans have been lodged to turn part of the ground floor of the building into a real-life room escape.
The concept, which comes from the Far East and Europe, sees players locked in a room and try to use clues to figure out how to escape.
A statement from Compass Architectural Consultants, who are acting on behalf of the firm behind the plan, said; “The concept of the proposed use is generally a game theme of escaping from the rooms which they are locked in, this concept has took hold in the Far East and Europe and slowly being brought into the UK.
“Preston lacks a facility for both young and old people and vacant industrial premises are ideal for conversion for these types of uses.”
Proposed opening times for the adventure game would be from 9am to 6pm Monday to Saturday.
In other countries the games, which usually involved up to eight players, are popular as team bonding exercises for companies.
What was a sofa manufacturer’s industrial unit is proposed to be converted for the adventure game.
The full plans are available to view on the city council website.
