Overview

Canterbury's award wining Escape Room experience set within the real cells of its former city jail built in the 1830's! It's 1994 and you've stumbled across Dr Wellington's abandoned laboratory at the former Canterbury Experimental Electric Company founded in 1883. Dr Wellington based his controversial crime and punishment experiments in the treacherous cells of the former city gaol which has since laid abandoned for 80 years after his sudden and mysterious disappearance. You and your cohorts have just 60 minutes to escape before you are trapped for eternity and in certain mortal danger, sharing the fate of his many victims... Enjoy free entry to the adjoining Westgate Towers Museum & Viewpoint with your ticket and a 10% discount on food & drink in The Pound Bar & Kitchen on the ground floor!

Brilliant Escape room. Action takes place in original cells which adds to the atmosphere and overall enjoyment. Clues pitched at right level with tension added by music and sound effects. Thoroughly enjoyed our imprisonment. Games Master was excellent.
