Why We Don't Do Scary Rooms

By Freya Carroll

When people think of Escape Rooms, they often think of scary environments. Zombies in rooms, masked faces leaping out at you - every second tube advert is promoting the Saw escape attraction! There’s even a horror movie about being trapped in an escape room. Here at clueQuest though, we stay away from the fear factor. But why?

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!

clueQuest: the More the Merrier!

By Freya Carroll

Summertime, and the living is easy. What’s hard is figuring out what sort of activity could suit your smorgasbord of friends. Perhaps a trip to an outdoor cinema, or a game of football in honour of the Lionesses? (If you’re looking for even more ideas, why not check out Mr Q’s Picks: Summer Fun?). It’s tough to find things that a large group of people can call be participate, so it’s understandable if you’re thinking your options are pretty limited.
