Frequently Asked Questions:

Are we really trapped inside a locked room?

No. You will be shown the emergency exit before you start The Locked Room. You can leave at any time.

Am I likely to feel claustrophobic?

Our room is built inside a shipping container, which is surprisingly large on the inside. The room is well lit and open plan so it is unlikely you will feel claustrophobic. In the event you feel the need to leave, you can safely exit the room at any time.

What age group is the game suited to?

The puzzles can be quite challenging so we recommended participants be aged sixteen years and above.

Why do you prevent people from taking photos?

We ask you not to take photos inside the room because we want to keep it a secret. The mystery of what’s inside the room is part of the experience.
