what is an escape room all about? 

Similar “The Crystal Maze” TV show but without the physical effort. There’s lots of objects, codes and hidden hints that can help you to complete your mission in time.

You have to be smart, think outside of the box to solve the puzzles you find. In a team you have to work together, think together and most importantly laugh together.

Our game master will guide you if you get stuck so don’t worry you will get out!

bank vault heist

You are a member of a successful crime syndicate and today you’ll be facing your greatest challenge yet, as you and your team attempt a heist at the Hatton Garden safe.

Your inside man “Basil” has just completed phase one of the heist – he has ensured the building is empty and gained access to the manager’s office, where the door to the vault awaits. He has assessed the situation and has reported that this particular vault is going to be difficult to compromise. Basil has discreetly hidden clues, tools and hints around the office which you will need to complete your job as safe cracker.

Basil also reports that he has suspended the security system for 55 minutes. After that amount of time, the alarm will be activated, and you will have 5 minutes from that point to escape before law enforcement arrives.

If you do manage to enter the vault, you will have to make a crucial decision: take the available money and run, or stay just a little longer to try to significantly increase your take.

Treasure on board has been pillaged and plundered from enemy ships, but only a certain kind of treasure will help you and your crew.

 Find the Pieces Of Eight to pay off the Gods of the Sea, finally lay the ghost to rest and ultimately buy your freedom. Should you fail, your fate is sealed, and you and your crew will be forever lost to the watery depths! Time is running out, so climb aboard and prove yourselves worthy of being the most fearless pirates around!

Rumours of treasure and unimaginable wealth have been circulating in the media. You assembled a team of leading archaeologists to join you on your mission to reach the inner tomb and discover the identity of this mysterious Egyptian king.
