Overview
More
We have 3 different 'games' to choose from. To see their difficulty please visit our website. Each room has their own theory and story which is explained to you on entry. After being locked in the room we put 60 minutes on the clock. You try to escape solving a set of puzzles, clues, finding keys as a team of up to 6 players. Will you get out in time? You must book in advance via our website. The game is suitable for those 10 years and over, but has been designed for adults.

This feedback isn’t to shun the game - the game and play was fantastic - it was the setup which let us down in this case. Having played clue HQ in several places now I have never been disappointed so booked this for my sisters...More
