Frozen in Time

Stuck in an ice cave with nowhere to run. How on earth will you make your daring escape?

An exciting quest in the heart of the Prehistoric jungle.

Claudius Hippobottom is lost in the jungle. He’s stuck wandering around in circles. Everywhere looks the same and he could be attacked by a predator at any moment. When all hope is lost, he starts to leave clues. Maybe someone will find them one day?

Welcome to the beating heart of the jungle, a treasure chest of history and knowledge suspended in the Prehistoric era.

It’s brimming with artefacts from the past, with as many dangers as there are fossils. Predators lurk behind every corner, ready to pounce upon their prey. Few who venture into the Prehistoric jungle ever return in one piece.

You always dreamed of becoming an explorer. You read about the exciting tales of famed paleontologist Claudius Hippobottom and vowed to one day follow in his footsteps and become the greatest explorer of all time. After Claudius disappeared in the Prehistoric jungle, you packed a bag and ventured in after him, following the trail of sporadic and cryptic clues he’s left behind.

When night falls, you take refuge in an ice cave. When the sun rises in the morning, you discover the door has frozen solid, sealing you inside. Unless you want to be stuck here forever, you need to work with your fellow explorers to melt yourself free from the cave and solve the puzzles Claudius has left behind. Here lies the secret of escaping the jungle alive.

You’ll need to use all your wits and knowledge to solve the riddles from Claudius’ jungle–addled mind. Travel back in time for an exciting Prehistoric adventure that’s suitable for all and book Frozen in Time today!

Secret Service: Winter Fall

The wintery Alps are a good place to hide. Will you be able to outsmart a devious double agent?

Down in the deep isolation of the wintery Alps, despicable double agent, Francis Slimeworth, has retreated to the safety of his secluded pine lodge. He knows that you’re following him and he has been planning his devious escape.

As a member of the Secret Service, you have one goal – to make the world a safer place. You’ll achieve this goal at any cost. You suspect that your long-time colleague, Slimeworth, has become a double agent whilst on an undercover mission and you’re hot on his trail. Anxious to put a stop to his dastardly plans, you’ve tracked him down to his secluded penthouse.

5 people – £14 per person off-peak / £16 per person peak
6 people – £11 per person off-peak / £13 per person peak

You think your plan is foolproof. All you must do is locate some incriminating evidence and expose Slimeworth for the fiend he is.

There’s one problem though. You’ve seriously underestimated Slimeworth’s cunning. He’s rigged his lodge with booby traps and disappeared without a trace. He’s one step ahead of you. To survive Slimeworth’s tricky trap-house, you’ll need to use all your cunning to outsmart him, locate the evidence and escape without disturbing the traps.
If you think you’re clever enough to outwit Slimeworth, book Secret Service: Winter Fall today!

Insomnia

The Insomnia Killer strikes again and his next target is you!

A terrifying experience that will make you jump out of your skin.

In a damp dungeon deep underground, the Insomnia Killer is waiting to strike. Never sleeping and always alert, he has an uncontrollable compulsion to kill. He’s the most merciless and psychotic killer in criminal history, he’s about to strike again and he’s coming for you!

5 people – £14 per person off-peak / £16 per person peak
6 people – £11 per person off-peak / £13 per person peak

You’re going to be the next unfortunate victim of the Insomnia Killer unless you can find a way to escape from his clutches.

You have 60 minutes until the Insomnia Killer returns to finish what he started. It’s just enough time for you to find some of his DNA. If you can discover his identity, then you can put an end to his blood-thirsty reign of terror.

This is a blood-curling, bone-chilling experience with some eerie puzzles that will make the most fearless player quake in their boots. You’ll need to use all of your logic to identify the Insomnia Killer’s killing pattern, study his brutal inspirations and make some terrible sacrifices, all before he returns to enact his gory fantasies.

If you think you’re brave enough to survive the killer’s murderous antics, and unlikely to jump at the presence of a live actor, then come and play Insomnia and see if you can survive!

The Alpine Kitchen is a great place to fuel up before your escape room adventure or to relax after you’ve made your escape!
