TICKET GIVEAWAY! License to Escape with Octopus Inc!

Another giveaway, guys!

Need something exciting to do for the weekend?

Highball Hoodoo has just the exercise in villainy for you!

Working alongside Yelp! London, Highball Hoodoo has TWO tickets to giveaway for 16th October!

Escape Game Giveaway Win Octopus Inc

OCTOPUS Inc. (the Organised Consortium of Troublemakers and Other Perpetrators of Underhand Sneakiness Incorporated) are currently hiring new henchmen as part of a recruitment drive – and are looking for the best of the best – or should we say the worst of the worst – to join our team and cause chaos throughout the land.

Your acts of sneakiness have been noted and we are impressed with your audacity and cunning, but do not worry my villainous friends, your secrets are safe with us as long as you report to your prospective new Evil MasterMind in his underground lair for your six basic aptitude tests.

Six Rooms – Six Tests – You must escape them all to complete the mission within 30 minutes. There will also be an optional outdoor mission courtesy of CITY DASH should you wish to accept. Can you make it out in time? Or alive? We shall see.

Ultimate Respect and Prizes in store for the fastest teams of the night.

To WIN, all you have to do is follow Highball Hoodoo on Twitter at@HighballHoodoo and retweet this post:

And the winner will be announced on the 15th of October!

And that’s all you have to do for a chance to win VIP tickets to Octopus Inc.’s LICENSE TO ESCAPE!

Perhaps you can attend the training in your finest henchman attire. And be ready for anything. Things may get a little… dicey.


– Over 18’s only

– The game In total will take around 60 minutes to complete – you may need to wait for your time slot. They’ll be a free drink on arrival and bar area to hang out in with live leader board.

– They’ll be music, indoor and outdoor games as well as a cash bar, plus drinks from Double Dutch Drinks.

– At least one of your team will need a fully charged smart phone with the Yelp App for parts of the evening. If you don’t have it, make sure to download it now.

Best of luck, Tweeters!


FREE GIVEAWAY: Yelp’s Big Night In!

Yelp London Treat Yoself Free Giveaway
It’s a party at your place, and you’re the only one invited!
After the immensely successful VIP Ticket Giveaway on Highball Hoodoo to the excellent Yelp’s Mad Scientist Soirée (Review HERE) and the previous year’s Elite Summer Garden Party (Review HERE)Yelp is back with something a little different!
It’s time to treat yo’self (and you can do it with your trousers off.) Yes, on Friday, July 31st, we will be running the first ever YELP’S BIG NIGHT IN! Who wouldn’t want to be fed, pampered and taken care of, for free, all from your own home, in the comfort of your PJs!
  • Free laundry picked up and delivered right to your door from Laundrapp!
  • Your home beautifully cleaned by Hassle, for free!
  • Anything you want, picked up and delivered by Quiqup!
  • A service of your choice from Bizzby! We’d suggest free therapeutic massages, but if you need an errand run or want a personal trainer session before cracking into all that food, they can make that happen too!


Want in?

– Make sure you have an active Yelp profile (meaning photos or reviews added) in case we have an overabundance of RSVPs!

– Check to make sure you’re free on Friday, 31st July, since the credit must be used on that date.

– RSVP on THIS EVENT PAGE now! (Winners will be notified on Friday 24 July.)

–  Only those with a real photo and name on their Yelp Profile will get a spot.

– Again, if the event goes over capacity, those who are recently active on Yelp (meaning adding great REVIEWS, PICTURES or LISTS) will be given priority, so make sure you keep your Yelp Profile up to date with all the places you’ve been to lately!

That’s it!

We’ll be choosing 30 winners next week to all participate on the same night. There’s never been a night in like this before and you know you would love to win a spot!

And remember… treat yo’self!


Update: Congratulations to winner @Chiyo_Kyoto, and thank you to everyone who participated!
