What is an escape game?
A game where your team have to escape from a locked room full of puzzles within a set time limit.

Yes! You’ll be monitored by staff at all times and there’s always a quick escape option in every room to so don’t panic.
What if we don’t escape?
You’ll be locked in forever… o.k not really! Our staff will come in, explain how far along you managed to get and then set you free!
