About
Cryptic Escape is the first real-life escape game in Norwich, UK. Based in the historic Augustine steward House. You are locked in a room for 60 minutes and you need to find a way to escape. There are a lot of objects, codes, hidden hints, that can help you to get out. You have to be smart and think out of the box to solve the puzzles you find. In a team you have to think together, work together and most importantly laugh together.

Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We did the ‘Magic School’ escape room, which was fantastic, the props & puzzles were brilliant & really got your mind working.
Matt was fantastic & a great host, special mention & thanks to him for making it a fantastic time.
We got out with 3 minutes to spare, & would recommend the place to anyone who enjoys Escape rooms.

Thoroughly enjoyed our experience! Franky really set the scene for us and knew just when to step in and help. This is my third escape room here and each one has trumped the last; they're all very different and continue to suprise me. Would always recommend Cryptic Escape over any other escape room in the area. I will be back!

What a fantastic experience from start to finish! We attended the Tombland Cryptic escape room as a family of 5 yesterday, despite turning up a week early, My mistake, they were so accommodating and offered us the room we had booked so the children weren't disappointed, and brought our booking forward, which was so kind! The kids and adults loved it, and we only needed a couple of helpful hints! Great fun for all the family and such a friendly team at Cryptic Escape!

What a great hour of fun and challenge! We loved this escape (and we've done a few), as it had lots of original, creative ideas that we hadn't seen before, was truly creepy and because we solved it with minutes to spare. Just as it should be! I would definitely recommend - a fantastic setting and a good quality game.

Absolutely brilliant! Staff were great and the escape room itself was challenging without being impossible! We had a really great time and would definitely return.

This was an amazing take on the virtual escape room experience. We played as a group of 2 and thoroughly enjoyed each and every puzzle. It was tricky in some parts but that just made us more determined to complete it!

I would highly recommend these virtual games if you're into the whole escape room genre! Nice addition to the live actor as well! :)

10/10 will do more of these rooms again!
