Thrill Monthly June edition

June has been a positive month across the UK & Europe. With the green light given to many of our European friends in advance for theme parks to start reopening and the UK being able to do so from the 4th July. Many other activities have already been able to find safe and new ways to operate and others are getting ready to start welcoming back shortly. Whilst there is much good news, sad news has been announced from businesses who have struggled more than others during the pandemic. 

Thrill Monthly is a monthly article which will highlight the major news and updates happening throughout the UK and European countries. We will share our best photos and experiences each month alongside sharing any reviews and future reviews expected to be upcoming from us in the following month! Whilst we try to cover as much as possible, some news and information will at times not be included within the article and this is down to our discretion.

Top Thrills Of The Month


The Insiders by Deadlocked Escape Rooms Review

Well June flew by with the last month of the full lockdown and super looking forward to getting back to the new normal. We were lucky to test run the new socially distanced outside game by Agent November which was interesting & super enjoyable. Additional to this, we got to try the hardest online multi media escape game by Deadlocked Escape Games, taking us over 6 hours! Next month I’ll be looking forward to getting back to Thorpe Park, Alton Towers, Chessington World of Adventures amongst much more!


Thrill Monthly June
June has been the final month of lockdown before theme parks and more return from July. We were fortunate to see Zoos reopening as well as the inflatable aqua parks… I was due to visit the Liquid Leisure aqua park but had an accident mountain biking the same morning that prevented me from going, but still managed to visit The Wild Place Project zoo the day after which was really nice. Have also been keeping busy with plenty of virtual escape rooms, plus some outdoor ones in London which have all been great (and reviews on the site)!



Thrill Monthly June

It’s great to hear the hospitality industry opening again from the 4th July! I’ve been to monks walk again to see Thorpe Park, had a stroll through the Alton Towers gardens, met the cheeky apes and roarsome lions at Chessington & went back in time and explored the ground of Warwick Castle. It was nice getting out to do these things and I can’t personally wait for parks to open again!
