Immersive Escape Room in Essex

What are Escape Rooms you ask? Escape Rooms are specially designed, themed rooms with a series of puzzles that you need to solve to complete an objective. You and your team will have to work together to solve the puzzles against the clock (You will never be ‘locked’ in the room).

Each escape room has it’s own Games Master who you will be able to contact throughout the game for a clue if you need them- however these are limited so use them wisely!

How does it work?

You will choose your date from the booking system below and select a number of players. The price per player reduces with more players so invite your friends!

After booking you will receive your booking confirmation email with your date and time and instructions for arrival. Please arrive 15 minutes before your time slot, there is an on site café for you to wait.

You will be greeted by your games master who will explain the rules of the game to you and answer any questions you may have. Once you are happy we will take you up to the escape room for you to start solving puzzles!

For more than 7+ players we recommend a mix of adults and children.

A Magical Mishap

Can you help Headmistress Redwind? She’s in a bit of a fix – she was preparing to send the last classroom in the castle into magical storage for the school holidays when one of her spells backfired and now she is trapped in one of the old paintings. Your magical mission, should you choose to accept, is to follow the clues and find out how to release her from the spell.

Expect potions, cryptic notes and some unexpected puzzles. Professor Redwind is stuck in the potions room at the very top of the castle, full of weird and wonderful magical objects, but don’t let that distract you from the task at hand.

Recommended for ages 10+ but fun and challenging for adults too. Younger children welcome if attending in a family group.

Suitable for 2-6 Players
