The game & missions

  • clueQuest is a real-life escape game where teams of 3-6 players have to race against time to complete a mission using common sense, logic and teamwork.
  • There are three missions available: PLAN52, Operation BlackSheep and Revenge of the Sheep, linked by a storyline. To learn more about the game and the story behind the missions please refer to our corresponding website section on the top.
  • There are NO fear factors or hard physical activities involved in the game.
  • Our staff’s enthusiasm and dedication when looking after every team, as well as our accessible game play and fun design make us one of the UK’s top escape rooms according to TripAdvisor rankings.
  • Our games feature custom built props and gadgets which enhance player experience and bring the storyline to life.
  • We are a quirky and affordable option for team buildings or family & friends outings. Our briefing area is designed to comfortably accommodate both small teams as well as larger groups of up to 54 people during one time slot.
  • For the purpose of following the storyline, we recommend playing our missions in this order: PLAN52 - Operation BlackSheep - Revenge of the Sheep. However, should you decide to play them in a different order, as they have strong standalone stories, the experience will remain just as enjoyable.
  • PLAN52 is our original mission with the red box* (*this remark only makes sense if you have already played it) If you are new to escape games, it is recommended that you begin with this one.
  • Operation BlackSheep is our second challenge which will take you to a new universe with new clues and mysteries. This mission is also suitable for new players.
  • Revenge of the Sheep is our newest mission and is designed as an expert level game. We do not wish to discourage you from taking on this challenge, but please be aware that first time players may not be able to enjoy the mission to the fullest extent. Please also be mindful that young children may have trouble with some of the puzzles in this room especially if they are unaccompanied by an adult.
  • The whole experience will last around  80 to 90 minutes.
  • You will spend around 60 minutes in the room (the maximum given time), however, a short briefing will be made before the game and we would love if, after your escape, you could share your experience with us while we take your photo, deal with any ordered merchandise and get your signature in our photo guestbook.
  • Please arrive around the scheduled time for your booking. In case you are running late, please get in touch. Thank you for your understanding.
  • clueQuest is a fun game for all ages, although children under the age of 9 might find it challenging and confusing.
  • For teams of children under 16 must we require the supervision of one adult per team (e.g. for three teams of children,three adults will be required to join them in the escape rooms). For more information, please check our Terms & Conditions.
