What do we do in your rooms?

You and your team will have a simple, yet sole objective… to escape our themed rooms!

Whether you are an archaeologist exploring the mysteries of the Minotaur or a team of Detectives attempting to rescue a kidnap victim, you will need to use your wits, logic, investigative and problem solving skills to work your way through the room’s many challenges.

Don’t let your adrenaline get the better of you, as you only have 60 minutes to escape!

Who can play?

Our escape rooms can be played by anyone and everyone. Teams can be made up of friends, family, work colleagues and can be used for different events such as parties, team building and corporate training.

Are there age limits?

Whilst there are no age limits to play our games, some of our puzzles and experiences may be too challenging for children under 10. Children under 16 are more than welcome to play as a team and must be accompanied by an adult, however the accompanying adult does not need to play the room with the group.

How many people can play each room?

A minimum of 2 players and a maximum of 6 are allowed in all of our rooms. Should you wish to accommodate a larger party, feel free to call us to discuss different options with you.

Do you cater for guests with specific needs or disabilities?

Unfortunately, our venue is not fully accessible. Devil’s Gate is not accessible for wheelchair uses due to some height restrictions within the game. However, wheelchair users can access Lab3436 via an accessibility ramp with the entire game being on one level and no height restrictions. Both Devil’s Gate and Lab3436 can be played by players with limited mobility. There are also some areas within both games where space is quite limited, so please contact us in advance to discuss your requirements prior to booking your game.

If there are any members of your group who may be hard of hearing or have any other specific needs, please inform us prior to your visit so that we can do our best to accommodate these. if you require further information, please contact us

What if someone is claustrophobic?

Some of our rooms are dimly lit and include cramped spaces and locked doors. You will be asked before playing if anyone is susceptible to claustrophobia and advised accordingly.

Are your rooms scary?

All of our rooms are designed to give you a fully immersive experience. Our games also include periods of darkness or dimly lit rooms. Some elements of our Devils’s Gate room are intended to stimulate an adrenaline rush and may be quite intense. If this is a cause for concern or you require any more information, please contact us to speak to one of our team.
