Overview

Cryptic Escape is the first real-life escape game in Norwich, UK. Based in the historic Augustine steward House. You are locked in a room for 60 minutes and you need to find a way to escape. There are a lot of objects, codes, hidden hints, that can help you to get out. You have to be smart and think out of the box to solve the puzzles you find. In a team you have to think together, work together and most importantly laugh together.

Loved it! Really challenging and we did need quite a few clues to get 80 per cent of the way through but good fun and would definitely recommend it. Need to try the other 2 rooms now.

2 of us did the laboratory escape and it was great fun. Didn't know much about it or have any expectations. But was really impressed with the slick operation. The experience as a real brain teaser and challenges your logic, observation and processing skills. Looking...More

Organised a work team outing to the Haunted room, had great fun, would highly recommend to anyone else to have a go, the organisers were really friendly and helpful and really got you into the theme of it all.

We did the Greenbeard challenge as a family of four. Don't want to spoil it in any way, but it does test out how well you communicate. So, a good lesson for us! We didn't make it out -we were told we were 15 mins...More

Our group of 4 took on the challenge of escaping The Lab of Dr. Lev Pasted - it was a clever and well thought out series of varied puzzles, with just the right amount of difficulty. You don't need to be a genius to work...More

Hi. The Lab and Pirate rooms are absolutely fine for 11 year olds, but please bear in mind there must also be someone 16+ within the room.

Hi Sorry none of the rooms take 7. Lev Pasted and Greenbeard take 5 people max, and The Haunted takes 6.
