The Professor Presents: Halloween

By Freya Carroll

Hello, humans. I have once again snuck onto Mr Q’s servers to wreak havoc - he really needs to upgrade his cyber security. This time of year is a time for fear and mayhem, and I can see you’re all trying your best. It’s very sweet. But vampires, ghouls, ghosts? Please. I’m here to bless you all with top tips for how to truly strike terror into the hearts of your enemies - I mean… friends.

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!

Caring for clueQuest: Keeping Things Safe

By Freya Carroll

When Operation Blacksheep opened in 2014, we made sure that all our props were the best of the best. Nine years on, we’re still striving for the best quality in our rooms, and so we regularly update our items in the room to make sure we’re delivering top standards. In this article, we take a look behind the scenes at how we replaced a vital prop… the Operation Blacksheep safe.

Golden Ticket Winner - Interview

By Zoli Papp

We sat down with Karan, the winner of our Golden Ticket from the second of our Tenth Anniversary Raffles.  He might be new to the world of escape rooms with just two games under his belt, but he will soon become a clueQuest expert with a £1,000 Golden Ticket in his pocket!

It may seem unbelievable, but top scientists at clueQuest Labs have discovered new information that proves beyond reasonable doubt that playing clueQuest’s new outdoor escape game, Glitch Hunters, makes you a better person. This may sound surprising, but they’ve shown us the research and it’s completely accurate. For the avoidance of any doubt, we’ve asked for special permission to display their findings here, and they have graciously allowed our request. Read on for one hundred percent true scientific fact…

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.

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...

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?
