Our rooms are fun for all ages but those under 10 may find some elements of the rooms a little difficult. Those under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult (18+). The adult must be a paying member of the group and the group size may not exceed the maximum number as advertised. Under no circumstances are children allowed to be alone in your booked experience.
No! Although some of our theming and advertising may look pretty scary there is nothing to be afraid of inside the game
All of our games are designed without any need for strength or brute force. You may need to crouch down from time to time, but the tasks are mainly about mental agility rather than physical.
Although we have taken provisions to ensure we are suitable for all abilities, we are limited in certain aspects. The best thing to do is get in touch and we will let you know if it is suitable. Our contact number is 01789 507060
Unfortunately, our escape room is situated on the first floor and is not wheelchair accessible.
Please let us know if you are running late – whilst we will make effort for you to play your game, it may be the case that we have another booking directly after yours. In such an instance your game length will be shortened by the amount of time you are late.
