About
Clue Cracker is the first and only Escape Rooms in Tunbridge Wells. Boasting three exceptional games, each lasting 60 minutes, you will struggle to choose your favourite! We currently have Jail Break, a nail biting prison escape, where you and you inmates must try to escape from jail before the Warden catches you. The Diamond Dogs, an intricately planned jewellery heist, where you and your gang must loot as much as you can and most importantly steal the famous Montgomery Diamond. And Temple Quest, a Jungle swinging, boulder dashing 60 minutes of monkey madness. In each of the games you will be faced with a cacophony of puzzles, clues, mazes, padlocks and keys. Choose your team wisely if you hope to escape the clutches of Clue Cracker.
Duration: 1-2 hours

    Great night, great staff
    We had a great time from start to finish. The staff were fantastic and really made the whole event for us. The game certainly made us think we solved each puzzle. It's prob not one for younger children. As a group of 6 adults it was perfect.

    Very enjoyable rooms
    We played Temple Quest, Jail Break and The Diamond Dogs and were impressed at all three. As fairly experienced players (Temple Quest was my 100th room and there was a lovely impromptu celebration at the end), we still found the rooms highly engaging with a good puzzle density. Well set-up, well organized and well run - we'll almost certainly be heading back for their newest room at some point.

    Mega Success
    This was my first escape room experience and I had an excellent time! Without spoiling anything, the newly opened Mega Bite has a really cool 80’s theme and a very unique aesthetic. I loved the puzzles and some of the extra action elements that I wasn’t expecting. Our guide Josh was engaging and enthusiastic and even talked us through some of the technical stuff once our experience was finished. Brilliant I’d recommend to any group of friends looking for a good evening.

    Fantastic!
    This was the final escape room that we needed to do to complete them all: Mega Bite. It didn't disappoint either! Loved the set, the colours, the range of puzzles and soundtrack. Definitely my second favourite, and we have done around 30 rooms now! Our hosts Josh and Holly were fantastic - thank you so much. :)

    A truly fantastic Escape Room experience!
    We had so much fun!!!! Diamond Dogs was amazing, Georgie was fabulous and made it so much fun for us. If you've never experienced an escape room you need to do it and as this one is in the backyard of Shuffle House you also have fabulous food and drinks on hand before and after your game. Fun, excitement, lots of belly laughs and tons of crazy conversations whilst you try and complete the challenges in the 60 mins... we made it in 59 mins 43 secs. Highly recommended. We will be back... PS No photos.. that would just give it all away! :)

    Temple quest was excellent, Josh was a fantastic host!
    Clue cracker is always excellent! This time we did the quest room. The room was very well designed, and very clearly has had a lot of work done and attention to detail. The puzzles were engaging and our host Josh was excellent, very friendly and entertaining. Definitely plan on doing the only room left that we haven’t so far!

    Arcade, 80s, zombies - A match made in heaven!
    Mega Bite was certainly a MEGA experience! With Temple Quest already topping the favourites list, we had high expectations and Mega Bite smashed them! We were a party of 3 adults, 1 child (12yr) who left us adults with moments of feeling dumb! It's perfect for a family challenge and team work. The theming is stunning, a real sensory experience. With innovative tech and immersive gamification that Clue Crackers have raised the bar once again!

    We went to play the Arcade 80s zombie game yesterday and we all really enjoyed it; parents and two teens. Fantastic staff, great concept, good value. We will definitely be going back to turn our hand at another option.

    Mega bite
    Our game was ran by Felix, we did Mega Bite which was a really great immersive experience. He led the game brilliantly and it was lovely that he took time to chat with us afterwards which we always find is something important to us when we do escape games! We have done all the games and thought this one was a great addition. Thank you for making our evening fun! ( diamond dogs is still our favourite!)

    Outstanding escape rooms
    Fantastic escape rooms with brilliant staff (thanks to Georgia, Imogen and Holly). We played all 4 games and temple quest was an absolute standout but all of their games are brilliantly themed and include inventive and fun puzzles. Highly recommended and can't wait until they build their next game

Me and my partner haven’t been out on a date for 3+ months due to COVID and found Clue Crackers online. We were concerned before attending due to being in a confined space, but when arriving to the game, all the staff were wearing the right PPE and went to great measures to give us space to enjoy the game safely. They have apparently given an hour in between games as they spent that time disinfecting all the props/rooms, so we felt very reassured.

I’d heard good things about these games, but this was 10 times better than we’d expected. The game is FULL of puzzles, brainteasers, logic games and more. The staff are on a headset and guide us when we felt lost, but didn’t give us much help and left us to solve every clue alone. The main guy who introduced the game was such a laugh, was fully in character and gave us such a great evening.

The set design in the rooms was to an insanely high detail, along with video, audio effects, lasers and massive vaults and real props, we almost forgot we were in a game.

Me and my partner did it with 2 seconds to spare, and spent the rest of the night laughing and sharing our best parts of the experience. This was the most enjoyable evening we’ve had in a very long time!! I hear they have a new game opening over the road and will defiantly book early to be one of the first to try this out.

I honestly cannot recommend this experience enough if you're looking for a fun, hassle free and highly enjoyable way of bringing together friends and family. According to my 14 year old son, this is going down as his best lockdown memory so far (which makes me so happy because he is incredibly difficult to please)! And according to my Mum, the birthday girl, this far exceeded anything she could've imagined. I was trying to organise a special birthday for my 70-something year old Mum. We normally meet up with my extended family for her birthdays so she was feeling very sorry for herself that we couldn't this year. I was wondering how on earth I could incorporate an extended family virtual celebration with children aged between 3 years and 15years.. My experience so far of meet ups on Zoom is often bored kids and uncomfortable small talk. The Game Show Live was an absolute life saver. Fast, pacy, energtic, original and really really funny. My Mum thought it would be a test of general knowledge but it was anything but. It was slick, incredibly professional and we all felt in very safe hands, the whole hour was smooth and seamless. It's also incredible value for money too. I'm so very grateful to these guys, brilliant!

What an amazing lockdown experience...I booked this for my sisters 40th birthday as a suprise in the hope of an evening of fun with the family and that was just what of was! Mr GLITZ is amazing and the whole event was full of fun, laughter and just bought a breath of fresh air to lockdown life...would totally recommend in a heartbeat! Fabulous for all ages too; we ranged from 5 to 70+ and it kept everyone entertained - we all loved it!

My husband and I were looking for an activity to do together that wasn't too far from home and one that would suit our interests.
Code cracking, key searching and adrenaline-filled teamwork all combine brilliantly here.
We attempted the Diamond Dogs escape room; the story was fab, the rooms well constructed and the special effects worked perfectly to add tension.
We managed to escape in just under the hour and we're already planning our next visit to complete Jail Break. We also plan to stick around in the Shuffle House for drinks, a meal and some shufflin' fun.
We were also pleased and excited to hear that they have plans to expand their games portfolio in another building nearby.
Would definitely return and recommend to those looking for a bit of a brainteaser of a activity if you live in the area or are visiting.

Done all 3 games at this Venue over a few months. Went to play Clue Crackers new game yesterday and it was amazing! We loved jail break, and diamond dogs was great too, but this was on another level.

It is an amazingly themed room, from the humourous intro video, the amazing decorations, the music, the lighting and the puzzles. It was almost as if we were genuinely in a cursed temple. Every single wall, post, prop and puzzle was beautifully created with amazing details in every part. The puzzles we found fairly easy individually, but we had lots to do and work on as we searched for the ten monkey statues that would release the Golden Monkey statue.

It has a great clue system. I Love the type of clue system used in this room where you talk to a certain character as much as you like throughout the game, which can come with as much or as little banter as you give out to it 😂 A nice fun, unique twist in the middle of the game, which gave us throw back vibes to another well known game we have played. Overall a great room, puzzles flowed lovely despite it being very non linear, the last puzzle definitely gives a massive spike of adrenaline and gets you running to the door to escape the temple.
Doing this game was an absolute joy to play, easily in our top 5 games. Would recommend anyone from beginners to experts to come do this room as soon as you can, It is not too be missed!

Hosts were excellent and the GM was absolutely great. Everything inside the venue was clean and Covid safe.

We went with the whole family (12 in total) and split ourselves between the two escape rooms competing for the fastest time. The girls team completed Jail Break and enjoyed the variety of challenges. The boys team completed Diamond Dogs which was great fun from the first trip in the van to the final escape from the vault. Our 8 year old son was very involved in solving the clues and the 6 year old girls enjoyed the experience, hunting for items and padlocks, even though the clues were a bit difficult for them.

The staff were welcoming and enthusiastic from the start and the experience as a whole was fantastic.

We will definitely be back to swap rooms.

We did Temple Quest and first and foremost were so impressed with the quality of the build and the attention to detail in all the props and activities.
Some truly frustrating and intense moments but great fun as the theming is so immersive. It was great that as a group of 4 (2 adults, 2 teens) the puzzles were not linear so everyone could be busy working on different puzzles and it was quite reminiscent of the Crystal Maze and the Goonies at times!
Becky our GM was really warm and welcoming. She set the scene well and was very attentive, giving helpful, timely nudges.
We booked the room whilst on holiday in the area, based on the quality of reviews and can't wait to be back to try the other Clue Cracker rooms.

First off let me say that I am no stranger to escape rooms, having completed around 30 rooms around the world and when owners from other rooms recommend somewhere, you know it will be a special experience.

I was glad that escape rooms have started to reopen after a 3 month break due to covid, the game masters both wore facemasks and were extremely aware of social distancing, I have no doubt that their room is thoroughly cleaned between rooms so please do not let covid put you off.

Ok onto the game, I played diamond dogs and it is clear to see it is a labour of love, it is a memorable room from the unique beginning all the way through to the ending.
A good mix of puzzles, some of which we hadn't experienced before.

All in all a top quality experience which is well worth the visit

My friend and I are escape room enthusiasts and we've done way over 100 rooms, so we wanted to get a final escape done before the second lockdown. We spontaneously decided to book Temple Quest at Clue Cracker as we have previously done their Jail Break game and thoroughly enjoyed that! Our games master Tim was lovely and welcoming, and even though we had booked the last time slot (9pm), he was still super energetic, enthusiastic and lovely to talk to. The escape room itself was absolutely magical, and of course there will be no spoilers in this review, but I really recommend checking out this room straight after lockdown. It was so immersive, and having to do physical puzzles instead of normal padlocks made a change for us! We had my boyfriend there too, as he's done a few escape rooms but isn't quite an enthusiast, and he had the time of his life as well! We just about managed to escape within the hour, and it was great seeing new puzzles and a new combination padlock, since being enthusiasts it's quite hard to come across such unique things in rooms, so this really impressed us! Tim gave all the right clues when we needed them, and the clue system itself is such a laugh. All in all, this room was a cracking way to have our final escape as we enter this lockdown again, and I urge you all to get out and go to escape rooms such as Clue Cracker when they open again, as this was an incredible experience!

Would really recommend Clue Cracker, we completed the Diamond Dogs room - it was all well laid out inside and we enjoyed the premise of the story and variety of puzzles. Dawn was a great host, very welcoming and offered just the right amount of clues for our party of two which was helpful as we had only visited one other escape room before this one. We escaped just in time and loved the ending! Would love to come back and escape the other rooms when we are back in the area. Also recommend Shuffle House for post-escape room debriefing with their tasty pizza and cocktails!
