Ah, the first date! A moment sprinkled with tiny butterflies in your stomach, a dash of nervousness, and a generous dose of excitement. Choosing the perfect setting for this memorable occasion can be a puzzle in itself. But fret not, for we have cracked the code: an escape room adventure at clueQuest!

1. Break the Ice, Not the Bank

First dates can be awkward, we get it! But imagine being spies on a mission, where the fate of the world hangs in the balance. At clueQuest, our escape rooms are designed to break the ice effortlessly.

Engaging in a playful, spy-themed adventure allows you to bypass the initial awkwardness, offering a natural flow of conversation for your past experience drinks. Plus, it’s a cost-effective way to have a blast without breaking the bank!

2. Unleash Your Inner Detectives

Our escape rooms are not just puzzles; they are stories where you and your date become the main characters. With a narrative centred around our adorable yet cunning protagonist, a yellow mouse, and a nefarious black sheep hell-bent on global domination, you’ll dive into a world that’s quirky, fun, and utterly immersive.

It's not merely a game; it's a journey where you and your date can unleash your inner detectives, working together to outsmart the villain!

3. Teamwork Makes the Dream Work

Escape rooms are all about teamwork, and what better way to gauge your compatibility? Solving puzzles and deciphering clues together will give you insights into each other’s problem-solving skills, creativity, and ability to work as a team. It’s a fun, interactive way to learn more about each other without the pressure of formal dating scenarios.

4. A Memorable Adventure

With 4 live escape room games, an outdoor game in the heart of London, and 10 play-at-home games (Mechanics of the Heart specifically designed for couples looking for a cozy stay at home adventure!), clueQuest offers a plethora of spy-adventures to choose from. Each game is a unique experience, ensuring that your first date will be memorable, story-worthy, and anything but ordinary.

5. Keep the Adventure Alive, Anywhere!

The adventure doesn’t have to end after your first visit. With our play-at-home games, you can continue to dive into thrilling mysteries from the comfort of your own space. It’s a fantastic way to keep the connection and excitement alive, offering countless opportunities for future dates and adventures together. Escape rooms might even become a shared hobby that connects you with your other half.

6. A Story to Tell

Imagine the stories you’ll have to share after successfully thwarting the plans of a world-dominating black sheep! Not only does it make for a great anecdote in the future, but it also provides plenty of material for post-date conversations and inside jokes that only the two of you will understand.

7. A Safe Bet for Fun

At clueQuest, our overarching theme is not just about solving puzzles; it’s about embarking on a journey, filled with laughter, light-heartedness, and a touch of adrenaline. It’s a safe, entertaining environment where you can be yourselves, enjoy each other’s company, and have a genuinely good time.
