A fantastic and enjoyable experience!

The game was very well planned and an enjoyable experience for all guests playing.

Once we finished our game our host took the time to chat to us, and share their knowledge on the other games and experiences on site and in other locations.

Great fun for all the family!

We did the train robbery and thoroughly enjoyed it… who knew we were so competitive! The hosts were fabulous and joined in with our energy and made the experience even more enjoyable. We will definitely be back. Highly recommended!

Book your desired escape room online

All our games are bookable online. Quite simple and uncomplicated – unlike some of our puzzles…


Get locked up for 60 minutes

Of course you want to be faster and break the record of the game. After all, the record holders are published.


Find the puzzles first, then find the solution

Not only that the puzzles are not easy to solve, they are also not easy to find. Face the challenge!

An escape game is a real-life experience where participants are locked in a room and must use elements of the room, the group’s collective knowledge, and wits to discover clues, solve puzzles, and escape and/or find the missing item within a set amount of time.

You and your team will have one hour to complete the escape room. You’ll also need to arrive 15 minutes before your scheduled start time to check-in and hear how the game is played.

Yes and no! You’ll be taken into the escape room and there will be a door that you will need to unlock in order to complete the experience. There is always another door that you can use at any point to leave the room, so no worries if you’re a bit claustrophobic!

We often get asked… ‘Is there an age limit?’

Whilst we don’t have a specific age limit on our rooms, we do recommend the games to ages 13+ due to the complexity of the experiences. Under 13’s must be accompanied by an adult in the room. This gives them the best chance for success in completing the room. We also have a team member assist them during the entire game from our control room, with hints or clues to help along the way, should they need it.

*Please note that under 5 years won’t be charged to play any of the games, but anyone older will as they can contribute and enjoy the experience.

If you need to add more players in even after you’ve booked, no worries! You can just pay for the extra people on the door with your card.

Yes! Please call us on 01582 797793 a few hours before your booking and we can move it to a new date that suits you (pending we have availability) free of charge!

Please note we do not give refunds for full cancellations, but will happily give you a gift voucher for the same amount to use at any of our locations, with no expired date. Please review our COVID policy for sickness requests.
