2. Privacy Policy

Data collection and use, including data collection and use of personal information is governed by our Privacy policy which is incorporated into and is a part of this Agreement.

3. Booking

These booking conditions, together with our Privacy policy and any other written information we brought to your attention before we confirmed your booking, apply to your booking with clueQuest Ltd. Please read them carefully as they set out your respective rights and obligations.

In these booking conditions references to 'you' and 'your' include the first named person on the booking and all persons on whose behalf a booking is made or any other person who is added to a booking or to whom a booking is transferred.

We act in the following capacities: as an escape experience game provider (for corporate team buildings, friends and family outings, etc.) and as a game-based assessment provider ('clueQuest Assessment Programme', also known as “C.A.P.”) for recruiters and corporate employers. Our obligations to you may vary depending upon which arrangements you book with us and we have tried to set them out below as clearly as possible.

3.1 Age restrictions & Students

a. Recommended Ages

Our PLAN52 and Operation BlackSheep missions are most suitable for players over the age of 9. Children under 9 years of age can join clueQuest missions only as part of a group of majority older players since our rooms are not designed to be child-safe and contain items, such as cupboard doors and small objects, that could be hazardous to small children whilst accompanying adults are distracted by the game.

The Revenge of the Sheep and cQ ORIGENES missions are recommended for ages 14+, as they contain several longer puzzle sequences (10 minutes spent working on one section) which can see younger players lose interest. Children under 14 are permitted to play these rooms, but from experience they are more likely to enjoy one of the prior two rooms.

b. Players under the age of 16

We require an adult over the age of 16 to be a paying participant in all games. This is included in the maximum capacity of six people in each room (so the maximum number of young people under 16 is 5 in each room).

For multiple team bookings, you will require one adult per each team of underaged players (e.g. if you plan to book 3 x PLAN52 rooms, you will require 3 supervising adults - one per each team). Any team of entirely players under the age of 16 will be turned away and be offered the change to reschedule to another time.

Please be aware that our former 'adults go free' policy is no longer in place, and therefore all members of a team must pay for admission.

If your visit has been arranged as a school trip (i.e. if your communications prior to arriving on the day were made via the 'Schools' webpage or the email address) then our supervision policy differs in the following way: Children aged 9-13 must be accompanied by an adult in the room, and thus the ratio of children to guardians must be 5:1. Children aged 14-16 do not need to be supervised inside the room but one supervising adult must be present on-site for every 10 children. Thus, the ratio of children to guardians must be 10:1.

c. Student Groups

Student groups who book with us between Mondays and Thursdays benefit from a discount of £5 off per person. Please get in touch with our team at to arrange for a booking. Please note that we will require every member of your team/group to present a valid student ID card upon arrival that must contain a photo and the dates of your course of study. Failure to provide these will result in being charged the full admission fee.

3.2 Gameplay & Conduct

a. Late arrivals

clueQuest bookings are live events with a scheduled start time and you are responsible for ensuring that all of your group of players arrive at the time stated on your booking confirmation, which is generally 10 minutes before your game start time. Games will not be delayed for late arrivals, although we will allow late arrivals into the room after your escape game has begun, but not more than 15 minutes into the game.

If your party has not arrived 15 minutes after your booked game start time, this will be treated as a no-show and we may need to refuse entry to your game. No refund or rescheduling is available for no-shows.

It is your responsibility to make your way to our business premises to play your game at the time stated on your booking confirmation. We do not provide parking or other travel arrangements and any travel information provided on our site is only done so as an aid to planning your visit. We cannot be held responsible for any failure of transport arrangements that result in your booking being a no-show.

b. Intellectual property

No video recordings or photos are allowed inside the rooms. You are expected not to use any video/audio recording device during the game (this includes without limitation: mobile phones, microphones and cameras), unless a different arrangement has been made with our venue prior to your booking (i.e. film and production crews, etc.).

If you are a blogger, vlogger, press representative, etc. planning to film or take photos at our venue for review purposes, then please get in touch at for permission in advance of your booking day.

We expect you and your group not to disclose any details of the game directly or indirectly to any third party members. Our games are our intellectual property and you are not permitted to use this in any way without our written consent. You accept that any such disclosure or use may constitute an infringement of our intellectual property rights.

c. Respect for our staff

While you are on our premises, you must ensure to conform to our codes and regulations, adopt proper standards of behaviour, and cooperate with our employees. People suspected to be under the influence of alcohol or drugs may be turned away or removed from our premises by our employees and their booking cancelled or ceased early with no refund.

We do not tolerate any kind of bullying or harassment towards our employees and we reserve the right to remove from our premises any person who is violent, abusive, threatening or disruptive or whose behaviour is causing distress to other customers or employees, with no refund for booked or partially played missions.

d. Other restrictions

For health and safety concerns, we can not accept teams larger than 6 players in one escape room. This includes adults accompanying participants under the age of 16.

Food and drinks are not allowed inside the escape rooms and alcohol consumption is strictly forbidden within our premises, unless you have obtained the management's written consent prior to your booking.

We are entitled to charge our customers for any damage which is intentional and/or caused by misuse of company property within the briefing area(s) and the escape room(s).

You will receive instructions before the mission in the form of a briefing given by a game host. After learning the rules and objectives of the mission and receiving the information provided at the briefing, you and your group will participate in the event at your own risk. We are not liable for any damage caused to persons, possessions or materials by your failure to follow the instructions given before the event.

e. CCTV and team picture use

CCTV will be used to monitor you and your team during the course of your mission. This includes audio and video monitoring as it is an essential part of running your game. For regular customers, recordings of your game are stored for 48h with the sole purpose of documenting evidence of illegal behaviour, such as committing willful damage to company property or harassing members of staff. For C.A.P. (clueQuest Assessment Programme) customers, recordings may be stored indefinitely for feedback, training and data purposes.

Photographs of you and your team will be taken after the mission, stored on our computer systems and uploaded to a secret link which only you and anyone you choose to share it with, will be able to access. By accepting these Terms and Conditions and permitting our employees to take photographs, you grant unconditional permission for those photographs to be used by us for marketing and promotional purposes. If you do not want your team photograph to be held by us and used in this way, please advise our employee at the time your photo is taken.

3.3 Pricing and Availability

All game dates are released approximately 4 months in advance and can be booked via the Booking section of our website.

We neither represent nor warrant that all missions will be available at all times and cannot necessarily confirm availability until confirming your booking. Availability indications are provided on our website, however, such indications may not take into account bookings that have been placed by other customers during your visit to our website.

We make all reasonable efforts to ensure that all prices shown on our website are correct at the time of going online.

Without the booking confirmation email you may be denied entry if you have no other proof of identity.

3.5 Invoice payments

When requested in writing, we also accept payments via bank transfer. In this situation we shall forward you an invoice along with your booking confirmation (which is also your payment link).

Please note that this option is available exclusively to registered businesses booking for team building. If you are not booking on behalf of a business, payment must be finalised before your scheduled game(s) using one of the methods mentioned under point 3.4.

The invoiced price of our missions, merchandise or services must be paid in full before the date of your experience otherwise access to the venue may not be granted or your booking might be cancelled.

However, we understand that sometimes schedules change and that unexpected and unavoidable things happen. Below are our policies regarding cancellations and rescheduling bookings and other events hosted by the company.

Issuing of vouchers and rescheduling will depend on the number of rooms booked and the amount of lead time given between the initial request to cancel/reschedule a booking and the date of the booking.

b. Over 3 escape rooms booked
  • A voucher will be issued for cancellations up until 30 days prior to a booking
  • No voucher will be issued for no-shows, incomplete teams or cancellation requests forwarded less than 30 days prior to a booking, but we will be able to reschedule your booking for a handling fee of £30/room.

In the event of an unforeseeable 'Act of God' (e.g. fire, bomb scare, terrorist threat, attack, earthquake, flood, etc.), the company and its staff and managers are not liable for an impeded exit due to being voluntarily locked in a room. You acknowledge that this might delay your exit from the building in the event of such a situation, but that there is an efficient emergency exit strategy and an exit button.
