What The
Players Say

We did strike force – was absolutely brilliant. Clues were fab – decoration of room was top notch. The staff here are really nice – set up was good. We had a great time here, excellent story. We will be back to do the other panic rooms soon.


I absolutely loved the Christmas escape room! It was such a unique experience and felt fantastically festive. Our party also enjoyed the tomb which was really atmospheric and immersive.

Victoria’s Adventures

A group of us booked all three rooms as a way of team building (we work together). Everyone had a lot of fun and really enjoyed it.
Hosts are lovely and really help everyone to get into the spirit of the event.

What is a Panic Room?

‘Panic Rooms’ or ‘Escape Rooms’ are an exciting form of entertainment where a team of family, friends or colleagues can enter an immersive adventure experience. By searching the room for clues, hidden items and solving puzzles the main aim is to escape before your 60 minutes are up.

Think Crystal Maze meets Sherlock Holmes and you won’t be far off!

If I’m late, can I still play?

If you arrive late for your booking we reserve the right to deduct time from your game however we will always try our best to give you the full 60 minute experience.

If you arrive too late for your booking to be run the booking is classed as a no-show and no refund will be given.

If need to reschedule/cancel my booking?

Due to us being a live event we are unable to guarantee any reschedules or cancellations.

Please email us when this need occurs and we will attempt to organise this for you.

No refunds are provided.

How many people can play at once?

Strike Force can take up to 7 players
The Panic Room and North Pole Panic can take up to 8 players
CSI: The Mafia Murders and Carnevil can take up to 10 players

Do I need to book in advance?

Due to staffing bookings are required to be made in advance, we always try to accommodate as best as possible so it’s best to call us to confirm that an experience can be run for you at your desired time.

Is it scary?

The Panic Room experience is nothing to be afraid of, there is absolutely no scares or live actors. Just you, your friends, 60 minutes and a mystery to solve! We are not a horror attraction!

I have claustrophobia / anxiety, will I be ok in the room?

This will depend per person however we believe that most people will be fine, for health and safety the door is never locked so you may exit and re-enter at anytime. The room itself is pretty large so if you feel claustrophobia or anxiety may be an issue we would recommend booking with a smaller group. Alternatively, you can come to us before booking and check out the room before hand to decide if you are comfortable with it.

Are there any age restrictions for players?

Players younger than 12 years old will require an adult present.
Most of our rooms are suitable for ages 8+, see individual room pages for further information.

What time should I arrive for my game?

Please try to arrive 10-15 minutes before your booked session for your briefing and introduction.

What, if anything, should I bring to the game?

You don’t need to bring anything except you and your team mates!

Is there wheelchair/disabled access?

Unfortunately due to our location in the building at this time none of our experiences are completely wheelchair accessible and those with crutches may have difficulty getting up the stairs to The Panic Room floor where the experience is held.
