North London escape room with a twist

Poppa Plock’s Wonky Workshop is the puzzling brain child of our team of game makers who tirelessly melted, warped and fondled numerous toys and trinkets in our own Wonky Workshop to conceptualise and meticulously create the new rooms at The Depot in North London. Each puzzle demands mind bending and body stretching skills from the entire team, making Poppa Plock an ideal corporate team building game or team bonding experience with friends. Here’s some insight into the making of some of our puzzles to give you a taste of what’s to come

Okikokyo (aka Oki):

Ventriloquist dummy's are notoriously creepy, and while he has a dark and twisted edge, he had to appear to be cute with a hint of mischief. Our game creator Ben Tucker took inspiration from a friend called 'Ramzy'. His doughy eyes and big grin can get away with the most outrageous things.

Pulley Puzzle:

Our chief game creator Ben was walking past a pub and saw someone playing a small wooden game with strings that cradled a ball to a top hole. He thought it would be better if it were 10 times bigger, so that's what we did. Adorned with smutty signage, this game reveals a special probing prop when completed.

Meet Roy:

Built by Sebastian Plock, Roy is 'The greatest toy to walk the Earth' powered by a notoriously dangerous power source named 'Nexus 1'. The story is heavily influenced by a certain Sci-Fi film, can you guess which one? Roy is key to the game, you will first meet him dismembered - your job is to put him back together to reveal the final clue.
