10 things we learnt playing London's new Crystal Maze experience

Back in the nineties a person knew where they stood.

Michael Keaton was the only Batman Gotham deserved, light-up trainers were the discerning footwear of choice and - of course - the best thing on the telly was The Crystal Maze.

Well now it’s back, not on TV but as an immersive experience in London's Angel from 15 March, inviting nostalgia-happy fans to live out their fantasies inside a specially designed 30,000 square-ft space complete with large air-blasted crystal dome (the second most famous dome on the show after host Richard O’Brien’s). Doors open 15 March and you can book tickets here.

But how good exactly is it? What can you expect? And, most importantly, is it worth forking out for the £50 ticket?

We ran the gauntlet to find out.
