Overview

Bookings essential! An Immersive, unique, dramatic, high-energy, intellectual puzzle solving escape game, that will test your wit, intellect and problem-solving skills. Work together with your team to accomplish a mission; find clues, solve mysteries, complete puzzles, operate hi-tech gadgets, and even use a time machine in order to save the world from total destruction! To complete these missions, you and your team will need communication, precise detective skills, and attention to detail, collaboration will see you escape, failure to do so could see the end of the world as we know it. Your mission in The Vault is to infiltrate the headquarters of a secret society known only as ‘The Syndicate,’ an organisation aiming to enslave humanity through brainwashing, human experiments and cyborg war machines. Once you’ve uncovered their secrets and collected all the incriminating intel, you can escape; but be warned, you only have an hour before ‘The Syndicate’s’ plans are put in motion, plans which could have disastrous effects on the entire world. The Lab is an inter-dimensional laboratory where one of our top scientists, who was in charge of weaponry research and development has been held as hostage and forced into developing a deadly, poisonous bio-weapon. You need to collect the main ingredients of the toxic weapon and the research in order to save the world from a chemical-biological warfare. The dimension of the room is unstable, and we only can keep the portal open for 60 minutes. If you are unable to rewire and operate the time machine on time, the portal shuts and traps you forever. Switch off from reality and switch onto a world where you are secret agents in a mind-blowing, movie-like, themed environment. Always loved spy movies and puzzles? Always thought you'd make a damn good detective? Well, prove it.

We have probably done close to 25 escape games at this point - and I have to say this is among the top. We did the temple room and it was very good. The game is laid out well with fun puzzles along the way....More

Great idea for a small space. The Temple room was a good challenge for a small group. The hosts are good at giving small hints when needed that give you a push towards the answers without making things obvious.
