Frequently Asked Questions

Tell me More!

Locked In A Room is a live escape-room experience. Participants are locked in a room with a series of tests, puzzles and clues that combined allow the unlocking of the rooms mystery and hopefully a successful escape, challenging them every step of the way.

As you enter the room you will initially stand there bewildered and then… IT BEGINS!

Prices?

Prices are £20 per person, but feel free to give us a call for larger bookings – 01179 291 759.

What makes us different?

We are the only escape venue in Europe that can enable a large group (up to 44 players) to race against each other simultaneously. This considerably adds to the pressure, excitement and adrenaline rush, as if it wasn’t tense enough already!

We have made a HUGE effort to theme the venue throughout, so much so that we have been approached by both music and television companies to use our facilities as a backdrop. Our props are original wherever possible from the floor to the ceiling, perfect for setting that eerie scene…

Other features include live CCTV installed in the “Exit room” to allow the faster teams to watch the remaining teams attempt their escape and all set in a beautiful listed building seconds away from the harbourside’s restaurants, bars and Hippodrome.

Where can I park?

We have fairly limited street parking directly outside the premises due to our central location (charged at £3 for a 2 hour stay) however a multi-story car park on Trenchard Street is a 1 minute walk away with many other smaller car parks surrounding it.

Is it scary?

Our feature rooms “Timelock” are not scary. These rooms were sculpted on a thrilling, mystery and team building basis rather than scare factor, leaving us open for future rooms to be designed for the braver few…

Okay, but how difficult is the game?

It’s not easy, but your personal game controller will monitor your whole progress from an external screen and may at certain points offer guidance if you are really struggling on a particular section.

I’m neither rocket scientist nor brain surgeon!

You don’t have to be! Common sense and the ability to think outside the box will give you a strong advantage although you’ll still have great fun even if you don’t manage to hit the deadline.

AM I REALLY LOCKED IN A ROOM?

You may leave the room at any time you wish. Your personal game controller is monitoring your entire experience so it is perfectly safe.

SO WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT TO SEE WHEN I ENTER THE ROOM?

HaHaHa, you didn’t think we would give that away, did you?

HOW MANY TEAM PLAYERS PER ROOM?

Timelock can have a maximum of 6 players in each room and Invisibility Gene can have a maximum of 5 players in each room. We do have one Invisibility Gene room that can hold a maximum of 6 players – available on special request (just pop us a call to book). The minimum team size in all the rooms is 2 players.

With 8 identical rooms over two formats, larger teams can play in a head to head battle of up to 44 simultaneous participants!

ARE THERE ANY AGE RESTRICTIONS?

We are suitable for any age! We do however ask that groups of under 16’s have an adult present.
