If your group is more than 6 people we would recommend splitting over 2 rooms. There is no extra cost for this option.

Our minimum age is nine years old. Anyone under the age of fourteen years we request please an adult to accompany in the game ('adult' being 18+). NB: In Cardiff we require an adult as part of the group at all times and after 7pm we are OVER 18s ONLY.
You are locked in a complex, the clock is set to an hour, and you must work together in a team to solve puzzles and search for clues around the rooms to ultimately work out a door code and escape within the hour.
The whole experience will last around 80 to 90 minutes. You will spend up to 60 minutes in the room (the maximum given time), however, a short briefing will be made before the game and we would love if, after your escape, you could share your experience with us while we take your photo and answer any of your questions!
The price is £25 per person however discounts are available for groups of 9 or more. Please get in touch should you require a quote for a larger group. Refer to our website to learn more about the games!
No! Please just confirm the details on your booking email are correct and then that’s all you need to do!

Each venue is slightly different but on the whole we are open from 12:00 Monday to Friday during school holidays and from 4pm at other times. We are open from 09:00 to 22.00 most weekends !
There is nothing you need to bring. Everything you need will be supplied. We would recommend to wear comfortable clothes and shoes you can move freely in. Please leave the stilettos at home though!!!
There is very little physical effort required to take part in our games however we must advise that it is entirely at an individuals own risk. The escape complexes are huge however should an individual want to leave this can be done in a matter of seconds.
We ask teams to arrive at least 15 minutes before the game starts for your briefing and introduction.
There is plenty of parking at our Bristol & Oxford branches.
