Meet the Team | Agent Far

17/6/2019 By Louis Cammell

With so much talk around the rooms themselves, it can be easy to forget about another of the main aspects of the customer experience at clueQuest: Customer service. Far’s the man who makes sure that our standards stay as high as they are, and we’re pleased to say that our reviews seem to attest to his success. Far can often be seen quite literally wearing his love for secret agents on his chest, in the form of an Alias and Mission: Impossible T-Shirt, so it’s no surprise that he’s all about the clueQuest theme.

We love a school trip here at clueQuest. After all, there’s nothing more life-affirming than seeing people, young or old, bettering themselves with education. Mr Q certainly likes to see it too. The way he sees it, more sharp minds out there makes for a wider pool of potential agents to recruit. So we’ve taken it upon ourselves to streamline the process for teachers and school administrators, with changes to both our website and pricing. Below is everything you need to know.

Shhh… Hear that? That’s the sound of Mr Q quietly sobbing. He hasn’t stopped ever since he had to wave goodbye to the greatest group of agents clueQuest has seen in years: Arsenal’s Junior Gunners. Last month, a total of 60 of their members - adults and kids alike - recently won the chance to test their wits against our arch nemesis Professor Blacksheep as part of their Family Members’ Event. Watch the video here.

MoMath, Jack london Park, and now clueQuest. These are the latest venues to receive the prestigious Editor’s Choice Award from DatingNews.com; an online news outlet created specifically to help daters improve their love lives in interesting and unique ways.

Meet the Team | Agent Jonnie

13/5/2019 By Louis Cammell

Jonnie joined us fresh from the stage, having recently finished a period of appearing in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s School of Rock. An actor by trade, he fell in love with clueQuest when he first came to play as a customer. These days it’s not just the flexibility of the job that’s appealing, but also that feeling of passing on an experience which he found to be so personal and rewarding. Like all our agents, Jonnie’s a busy man, but he was kind enough to oblige me to the following chat.

The wait is almost over, VR fans. Beyond Medusa’s Gate, the new VR escape game developed by industry leaders Ubisoft Blue Byte and set inside the world of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is just days away! Here’s what we know so far...

“Eleven days from now, Red Bull, the energy drink more commonly associated with extreme sports, will stage the Escape Room world championships in Shoreditch, London”, wrote Simon Usborne in The Guardian on the 1st of April 2019. Get me out of here! Why escape rooms have become a global craze is, at its centre, a close look at the escape room industry in the UK. Beyond that though, the article is a witty, wryly told journey through one of England’s best rooms - our very own cQ:Origenes.

Angelic Diamonds are a jewellery retailer who stock a wide range of engagement rings. So it’s no surprise then that they know a thing or two about popping the question. Having previously compiled lists of where best to do so in Newcastle and Liverpool, it was only a matter of time until they reached London, where they decided to place clueQuest at the very top. Having witnessed many a proposal in our facility, we’re obviously thrilled. So without further ado, here is the all-important list:

Meet the Team | Agent Rowen

29/4/2019 By Louis Cammell

Rowen is one of our most highly decorated agents. There’s not a mission she’s not qualified to run, and if the reviews are anything to go by (and let’s face it, of course they are!), she runs them exceptionally well. Her name comes up in 5-star review after 5-star review, so we joined her for a chat to find out what it is that drives her to deliver such unwavering customer service. Is it her background as an actor at The London Dungeon, her love of the spy genre, or her friendship with each and every member of staff? Well, as it turns out, it’s probably a perfect mix of all three...
