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 £30 per person, but feel free to give us a call for larger bookings – 0207 476 5571.

WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT?

We are the only escape venue in Europe that can enable a large group (up to 78 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, great for setting that eerie scene…

We are also conveniently located at ExCeL London, minutes away from Canary Wharf and the O2 Arena making us perfect for those visiting ExCeL London or working locally.

Every effort has been made to make sure we operate in a meticulously safe environment, following all safety regulations, to ensure you and your party have an unforgettable and immersive experience.

IS IT SCARY?

Our feature rooms “Timelock” and “Invisibility Gene” 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?
