Fantastic evening out

Visited as a group of 4, Scott was fantastic as a host, really entertaining and made it a great experience. Escape room was lots of fun and a really decent challenge

First time in an escape room 5*

My first time in a locked escape room, we all loved it so much and Jaime our host guided us when needed. Would definitely do another one.

Nice family outing on a Sunday afternoon.

Great fun, the hour flew by. Thanks to Jamie for looking after us and being a fantastic games master. We’re already thinking of which room to do next.

Well run and good fun

We played The Dig escape room in St Albans and had a great time. The host, Elise, was really friendly and gave just enough clues to nudge us in the right direction without giving too much info. It's doable with only two people and we just managed to escape.

January 9, 2024

Great family activity

We did the Bunker room and our room guide was Scott.
He was very welcoming and explained everything very clearly.
The room was well set up and the puzzles were fun to complete and Scott was on hand when we needed help.
We competed as a family with two teenagers and it was a very suitable activity for all of us.
The location is easy to find and there is a great variety of rooms to choose from.

Locked Escape Room St Albans Dig

We enjoyed the St Albans Locked Escape Room we choose the Dig
We found it challenging but managed to get out before the time was up
Sabrina was a great host made us welcome and gave a clear briefing. She made sure we were ok and had everything we needed.
An enjoyable activity

Fun room with a great host. Loved getting to the last room and so close to finishing it too. Nice mix of puzzles

A fun and atmospheric experience!

We had a great time escaping from The Secret Bunker in Dunstable. Josh gave us a good intro and answered all our pre-escape questions... then into the bunker. The room itself was very atmospheric and nicely recreated the WWII look and feel. There was a good mix of puzzles for adults and the kids (11 and 8) to tackle and a few surprises along the way. Great fun!

Great experience enjoyed by all

Went for a team Christmas event and had two rooms competing against each other. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves and Sabrine and Alex did a great job of supporting us through our escape!
If you are nervous or anxious my advice would be to avoid 'The Dig'. The pre warning was subtle!

January 1, 2024

Enjoyed the Great Train Robbery with Josh

Five of us took on the Great Train Robbery room. Theming/narrative is simple but effective. Puzzles are satisfying and a few are especially innovative. A couple required something that we would never have considered but prompts from our host Josh were well-judged in terms of timing and subtlety; just enough to keep us moving forward. Game design is more than just an escape, ensuring you almost certainly get to keep playing for the full time. Venue itself is bright and clean, with lockers available. Good fun on New Year's Day - thanks Josh!

Great train robbery room

Really fun experience doing the Great Train Robbery room. Host was called Elise, was very good at communicating with us about the room and was very nice. I would do it again if I could!

December 30, 2023

Great fun

We did the Dig loved all the theming and attention to detail! Game master Sabine was just the right level of helpful and really lovely. On the expensive side for an hours fun but worth it for a treat

Family Christmas Outing

The puzzles were well thought out, our host (Elise) was welcoming and entertaining, and the premises were clean and spacious.
We did the Great Train Robbery room and escaped with seconds to spare with a good amount of money. Elise was great at guiding us when we needed it, whilst allowing us to feel like we still achieved most things ourselves.
Family of five (older teens and parents) all enjoyed… and we’re still speaking to each other.

Brilliant fun

Fantastic experience, 4 girls had a brilliant time and really enjoyed it. Superb fun support from Amalie, thank you!!

Amazing time!

We all had an excellent time here doing our first ever escape room. Sabrine was our games master and we couldn’t have asked for someone better! She helped us when she could see we were struggling, but didn’t give too much away. Thank you so much! And we will definitely be back to do the other rooms soon

December 23, 2023


Had a fantastic time still, Elise our was the best, so helpful with out giving away. I took us to the last minute and guessing right to the end

Jamie & Ryan were amazing and the grand heist was so much fun, we nearly escaped! Would definitely come again for a different room! Went with friends but younger sister also enjoyed and is great for all ages!

We did the train robbery and it was great. Thoroughly enjoyed the level of challenge - tough but not pull your hair out. Top times!

December 21, 2023

Sabrine was a fantastic games host. She times rhe clues just right as we struggled at times! We took dad for his birthday and had lots of fun!

Very good escape room. Well organised and with a nice balance of different puzzles. We'll definitely be back to try some of the other rooms.

Enjoyable test which could have been more demanding than it was

We've visited several escape rooms over the years but this was our first in St Albans. We successfully negotiated Shadow Lair at Locked Escapes in a ridiculously quick time of 34 minutes so we comfortably prevented the total destruction of St Albans. It was not easy, though and we did enjoy it; some of the setups were very interesting and unlike any we've seen before (and we've seen quite a few!) We think one or two hints were given to us a little prematurely by our host, otherwise we'd probably have been closer to our normal outcome, which is escaping during the final 5 minutes of our allotted hour. There are 3 other escape rooms at the location and we hope to revisit one of them, at least, in 2024.

Great family fun

Went with my two teenagers, usually a tough crowd to entertain. It was our 1st escape room and we all had a great time problem solving as a team. Our friendly hosts gave clear instructions at the start, the room was well equipped (everything looked new), the challenge level was perfect, and the story interesting. I would highly recommend. We plan to go again and try the next difficulty level!

Great for a date night!

Fantastic company with great escape rooms - we have vowed to complete all of them! Big big thanks to Jamie who was funny, helpful, and made the experience very enjoyable. Best date night we have had in a long time - would recommend to any couples, it was a chance to switch off from parent mode and have fun, a lot better than other typical dates.

December 1, 2023

Brilliant- exceeded expectations!

Works outing to relieve stress! A few of us were worried because it was our first time but the staff were brilliant- friendly, funny and very helpful.
Half went into one room and half in another. Felt safe (had to get a few clues). We were reassured that the rooms are not actually "locked". Ben and Grace (I think) were superb and did everything they could to make it a fun activity.
I am def booking a family outing over Christmas or in the New Year!

November 30, 2023

Team building

Really great team building with some international colleagues. Sabine was super friendly. Would go again!

Fun Event to Make a Change

Fun escape room, did the train robbery, with some friends. We thought we’d do something more interesting than just go for some drinks.

Big thanks to Grace who helped. Will look into coming back for the other rooms in due time 🙂

Grand Heist - really good fun!

We completed the Grand Heist escape room at Dunstable. It was a good mix of puzzles. We really appreciated the help and good humour of Scott who helped us when we needed it! Strongly recommend!

Mummy and daddy day out

Had great fun at locked in St albans.
I didn't really know what to expect as it was my first time but sabine was great help. She explained everything and was there to prompt us/give clues when we asked.
I gave it 4 stars because I got frustrated at how difficult it was (that's my problem not there's!)
Nice to spend some quality time with the husband and do.something completely different to normal day to day life.
Really recommend it 🙂

Great fun and extremely well organised! I would recommend this to anyone who likes problem solving and a laugh. We did the train robbery challenge.

We had a brilliant time today!! We did the CSI room, really good to get the brain going!! Elise was fab and we had such a giggle, can’t wait to do the others.

Fun activity with friends

As a group of 4 friends we love trying different escape rooms. We did the CSI room and it was fantastic! It was challenging but we loved this about it and Sabrina gave us hints when we asked for them. Fantastic time!

Strange things escape

Had a great time at Locked this afternoon. Jamie was super helpful and the game kept us suitably challenged. Will definitely be back!

October 8, 2023

Amazing experience!

8 besties divided to 2 groups of 4 playing against each other. Amazing idea for bday party!! Scott and Jamie have been brilliant helping out and giving clues. Highly recommended for ages 12-13. Girls have had amazing time!!
Scott has been very helpful to book the slots for 8 players as I couldn’t do it on the website.

Great fun to work as a team

Lovely meet and greet with Grace followed by a really fun experience. It was our first time at an escape room and it took us a while to "think outside the box" as it were but once we got the hang of it, we worked well as a team and managed to find one of the two artifacts.
Would thoroughly recommend it and it was great to have something themed around our lovely city.

September 28, 2023

An excellent day!

Such a great time! Sabrina was fantastic and I would highly recommend this as a trip with friends. The CSI room has some great twists, including a greater objective than just simply escaping, which is delightfully novel. Parking is super convenient because of the shopping centre too, and there's loads of other stuff nearby to make a whole day out.

Loved our Locked experience

So much fun! Girls weekend…We did the CSI experience, very challenging but engaging, the three of us all really enjoyed discovering clues…Sabine was a terrific ‘private investigator’ knew exactly when we were struggling and when to give a well timed nudge, hint or timecheck. Highly recommend!

We liked the tasks, equipment and atmosphere. Would like to thank you as well to a game leader. The tasks were different, so it was never getting boring.

Difficult but fun

We were pretty tired after a big meal only minutes before but as soon as we entered the room we really got into the spirit of things. We did the train robbery room and I’ve got to admit quite a few puzzles were difficult to figure out and we had to call on Grace to help us with clues more times then we would like to admit 🤦🏻‍♀️. She was very helpful though and gave us just enough info to figure things out and get out of the room with £1.3mil. We will definitely be booking again as it was something different and fun to do for a date night.
