What is an Escape Room?

Pretty much what it says on the tin – you and your team are locked in a room for 60 minutes, you have to solve the puzzles, riddles and the mystery to get out in time. We are currently running two rooms – “The Shadow Darkens”, a 1940s detective mystery, and “The Heist”, a 1970s museum robbery.

When can we come and have a go?

We are open Tuesday to Sunday every week. Check out the booking calendars to see what’s available.

How much does it cost?

Prices start at £15 per person. Full pricing details are listed on the booking pages for The Shadow Darkens and The Heist.

Who is it for?

Pretty much everyone! Great for birthdays, stag or hen parties, team building events – or just any group of people who like to have fun solving  a mystery.

Is it suitable for children?

Children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult. Children under 6 can play for free (but still count as one of your team members! The maximum is still 6 people)

Can I bring more than 6 people?

We cannot put more than 6 people into one room. There are no exceptions to this. If you have a party of more than 6 people, then we would advise looking at booking both rooms simultaneously. If you have a group of 15 people or more, then drop us a line as we may be able to arrange a large group discount.

Is this suitable for people with limited or no English?

The nature of the puzzles in escape rooms generally means they are usually suitable for anyone regardless of language – however, as our rooms are often very story and scenario based they tend to require more reading and comprehension than a standard game. We would recommend that teams have at least one member who is fluent in English to get the most from the experience.

Do you have parking?

We don’t have our own car park as we are right in the centre of Exeter, however we are right next door to Smythen Street car park and about a 5 minute walk away from the Cathedral and Quay multi-story car park.

What else do you do?

We have a number of other mysteries and games available and in progress. Have a look at our interactive games page to find out more!
