A sense of escapism! Everything you need to complete the room is provided to you - just bring yourselves!

What is an Escape Room?

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're never really trapped in the room. Our rooms have emergency exit buttons that immediately unlock the doors and allow you to exit.
Your escape is booked for one hour however we encourage all participants to arrive 10 minutes early and allow 10 minutes afterwards for a debrief and to have your photo taken!
Our Downham Market branch has been designed to accommodate two to six players in each room.
Our Peterborough branch can accommodate two to four players in each room.
No - your booking is only for you and your friends. You will not be sharing the room with a stranger.
Our games cost £20.00 per person.
Whilst there is no age restriction, we do suggest that our rooms are not suitable for any player under 10 years of age. Any players under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
As all customers' mobility restrictions will be different, we recommend that you call or message us to discuss. Our games are achievable by most players and we can make allowances for most mobility issues.
Yes, we have ample free car parking available at both our sites . Just enter via the open gate and park in front of the building.
No - everything you need to complete the challenge will be provided to you upon arrival.
Please note if you require glasses to read then it is advised to bring them along with you - it's not very easy to escape if you can't see!

Online Play FAQs

What do I need to play?

You’ll need a laptop or tablet with the free Zoom client installed.  We recommend having running Zoom alongside our web based portal to play the game.

What happens if we need a clue?

Because the game is live, you can ask your Games Master for a clue at any time – this clue could be presented back to you as a riddle or a nudge in the right direction.

How many players can we have?

One game can be played simultaneously by up to four households.  Each household will have one connection to the Zoom meeting.

Can we have more than four households?

Of course – our standard bookings are for four households but we can add extra connections upon request for a small extra fee.

Can we talk to each other?

Of course!  The Zoom platform allows your households to view the room in real-time, chat with each other and interact with the live avatar in the room.

Is the game any different now it's online?

As with all physical game conversions, we have done everything in our power to make the experience the same for you.  There may be a few elements that aren’t quite as hands-on but we hope this doesn’t change the immersive experience we provide to you.
