Mindlock Escape Games


A fast paced, fun experience for 2-30 players based right in the City Centre opposite Clifford’s Tower.

In our series of unique games, each group is placed in a room and given a set amount of time to escape by solving puzzles, using strategy, creativity and logic. The goal is simple; to get out in time!

We have games which are designed specifically for teams of 2-6 players, and all take place in a custom-built, themed escape game room. With four rooms available (one double room of our Viking Valhalla game) at present our capacity is 24 players playing at one time. The recommended age for our games is 8 years and older.
