Here’s our favourite picks, which will be sure to keep everyone’s excitement racing over the next few weeks…

Oubliette: A Maths Escape Room

Oubliette is a fun maths-themed installation, which draws inspiration from escape rooms. Developed and delivered by Manchester Metropolitan University, Oubliette sees participants solve a series of problems, each with an underlying mathematical principle, in embodied and collaborative ways.

Oubliette is open every day until the 31 August. 


The Monster is BACK!

Back by popular demand, The Monster, the ultimate inflatable assault course experience, will be returning to the city on August 16th – 19th at BEYOND, Manchester's home of adventure.

Those who are up for a challenge can let loose their inner child as The Monster heads to Manchester for four magical days! At over 300 metres long, The Monster is the world's largest inflatable obstacle course and offers adults a challenging but nostalgic, experience, while treating kids to an inflatable assault course like they've never seen before!
