Read all about everything clueQuest!

clueQuest turned 10 this year and we are celebrating this landmark with raffles and competitions all year around! Rhys, the winner of the first golden ticket of ten (each worth a whopping £1,000) couldn't believe his eyes that he'd won. We sat down with him to find out how he felt about his luck...

10 Years of clueQuest

By Freya Carroll

You may be aware that this June, clueQuest turned 10 years old (we haven’t been quiet about it - check out this lovely article from The Escape Roomer!). Over the years, we’ve moved from high point to high point, and now’s our chance to take a look back at all we’ve achieved.

This coming Saturday, Charles III will be officially crowned King, and we’re sure the streets will be filled with expectant onlookers (including some of our gamesmakers!). For a clueQuest spin on the coronation, we asked Mr Q and friends what they would do if they were King for a day...

Easter Egg Hunt at clueQuest!

By Freya Carroll

We’ve all heard of the Easter Bunny, but have you come across the lesser known Easter Mouse? This year Mr Q is donning bunny ears and joining in the fun! But there’s a catch - Mr Q has hidden six eggs in each of his escape rooms. Can you find them all and claim your prize?

Mr Q's Picks: Springing into Action

It’s been a long, cold, lonely winter, but here comes the sun and the start of Spring! If you’re wondering how to spend the longer evenings and warmer weather, Mr Q has some perfect suggestions for springing into action...

The Professor Presents: Mother's Day

By Freya Carroll

Beloved readers, you will be delighted to learn that I stole Mr Q’s laptop when he wasn’t looking, and am now here once again to bestow wisdom upon you all. The more astute of you might be aware that it is Mother’s Day this coming Sunday 19th. As the world’s premier supervillain, I obviously love my mother more than you all love your mothers, but if you were looking for some last minute present ideas (pathetic), here are some that she might find… enjoyable.

Love is in the air at clueQuest! The most romantic day of the year is coming up, and Mr Q has been racking his brains as to how to properly celebrate it. Of course, it’s very romantic to save the world together, but what do you do once the world is safe? Well, we’ve got just the answer...

Lift Youth Hub Visits clueQuest

By Freya Carroll

During December we raised money for Lift, a youth hub based in Islington that provides vital services for young people. We filled a giant advent calendar with goodies and locked each door with a padlock - just £3 would give you the key to open a door and discover what was inside. We managed to raise an astonishing £1000 for Lift, and bought them many items from their wishlist! This culminated in Lift coming to play a game here at clueQuest and finding all their gifts in the final room! 

Our Intrepid Reporter also sat down with Judith, the Senior Youth Manager at Lift, to chat about the good that Lift does for the community.

clueQuest Gets a Fresh Coat

By Freya Carroll

Every March and April, spring cleaning is the phrase on everyone’s lips. Well, clueQuest is always ahead of the curve, and so we’ve decided now is the perfect time to give our rooms a coat of paint! Our Gamesmakers have been busy sprucing everything up ready for future agents.

clueQuest is made up of many people, from the Gamesmakers who run our missions, to the visiting agents who come to save the world. One pair who keep clueQuest running smoothly is our customer service team, Jonnie and Ophelie. Our Intrepid Reporter sat down with them to discover who exactly it is on the other side of the phone...

New Year, New Clue!

By Freya Carroll

A new year is the perfect opportunity to start afresh, and what better way to do that than by making a resolution? We’re a week into 2023, but if you’re still searching for ideas, here’s what some of our agents have decided to stick to this year!

Falling Star is rising again!

By Andy Tucker

Falling Star is back with an updated online game system for a great puzzle experience. We’re very proud of this new incarnation - it has some fiendishly fun puzzles, and it’s one of the best looking games we’ve ever made. A lot of sweat and tears has gone into this (thankfully not much blood) and we really hope that many more of you will get to enjoy it now.

Thanksgiving at clueQuest

By Freya Carroll

Thanksgiving: a day when our neighbours across the pond come together to celebrate gratitude and family connections. Well, Thanksgiving may not be celebrated here in England, but we at clueQuest certainly have lots to be thankful for! At this time of communal gratitude, let’s consider and give thanks for everything that allows clueQuest to provide such amazing and memorable experiences, time and time again.
