One hour of fun

Escape rooms are part of a game where a group of friends or family will be locked up for 1 hour. In that hour they must find a series of clues and puzzles, and once they’ve found them use them to find a way of cracking the code and escaping the room. Once they’ve done that they will have escaped. Question is can they do it within the allotted hour?

Some fail, but they come back and try again!

If you don’t escape in the hour, don’t worry, you won’t be left in there permanently – we will let you out!
