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.

Is it scary?
The Panic Room experience is nothing to be afraid of, most escape rooms aren’t horror-themed and are just filled with fun and adventure.
If you choose one of our horror games like The Dollhouse & Hell House, you will likely be scared but this is part of the fun!
Our Live Actor Escape Room Experience ‘The Happy Institute’ does have a live actor, which we adjust based on the group.
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 any time. 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 beforehand to decide if you are comfortable with it.
Are there any age restrictions for participants?
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.
