Overview
More
ESCAPE ROOMS are a unique type of entertainment, immersing you in a whole new experience. Instead of being an observer of the game, you are actually part of the story. It challenges you to make fast decisions, and pay attention to small details. You need to solve a set of puzzles to unravel the mysteries. It will hold you captive unless you work as a team to earn your freedom. About us: The owners' motivation behind creating 'The Lockey' was due to a passion for live entertainment and providing unforgettable experiences. The first room to be created was Case 47, which is a detective story, where you play as an MI6 agent. A few months later our second escape room, Hannibal Lecter, was in the making providing a different genre of game to choose from. This is a horror game based on the famous psychopath of the same name. ​ Following the success of these escape room in August 2017, we opened our third room, Ace Ventura followed by VR Universe in December.

This room I believe is £24 for adults and £16 for children. It’s in my opinion the best one. So interactive. I think they give discount if you do a second room on the same day. Hope that helps.

This response is quite late but there are no live actors the games are built on the atmosphere rather than anyone jumping out and scaring you.

It's probably best that you telephone The Lockey for availability. Contact details or online booking are available on their website.
