All our games are part of the same unique story, although it doesnt matter which order you play them.

Located just off Broadway Market in Hackney, east London we are close to London Fields, Bethnal Green and Haggerston stations.  Broadway Market and the surrounding area boasts some of the nicest open spaces,  bars, pubs and restaurants in London.

Difficulty level of our escape rooms

Our Games Masters work hard to read your team during play to make sure your experience is tricky enough to be challenging without being frustrating!  So, even if your team are complete novices, have no fear!

Our Games Masters are great at reading the difficulty level needed while you play.  The overall game is the same for everybody but difficulty is managed by tailoring clues according to how tricky you’re finding the game.  This could range from no clues at all to us being Captain Obvious.

The vast majority of clues fall in a nice comfy space between these extremes but don’t worry if your Games Master has to be Doctor Blatant –  They’ll make sure you don’t feel bad and there’s no shame in getting stuff wrong sometimes, eh!

This way of managing difficulty level works really well to create a safe and friendly bonding experience for your team.  Cheer at your successes and laugh at your mistakes!

Our Games Masters only watch over one game at a time to ensure your experience maximises the fun!

With our roots in London, we are a proudly independent company.  We design and create our experiences in-house with the aid of talented theatrical artists to bring you originality rarely seen in escape rooms, even in London.  We focus on creating experiences we love rather than relying on bought-in games and stale clichés.

We set ourselves apart from other escape rooms by creating intriguing stories that immerse you right from the very beginning. You’ll meet odd characters who set the scene, immersing you in a story that feels like an adventure – not just a set of puzzles.  By the way, our characters will never make you feel uncomfortable or force you to sing and dance!  Unless you want to of course…
