About
Locked In A Room is the home of the UK's largest escape venues. Participants are locked in a room with a series of tests, puzzles and clues that combined allow the unlocking of the rooms mystery and hopefully a successful escape, challenging them every step of the way. As you enter the room you will initially stand there bewildered and then... IT BEGINS!

My daughter went for her 16th Birthday with a group of friends. They absolutely loved it and raved about it after. Shall definitely book again in a different room. Thanks again!

Fabulous
Nov 2021 • Friends
We had an absolutely fabulous time playing parallax at MK. The room itself was superb with challenging puzzles and lots of cool little details. The design of the room was incredible, and really did feel like you were in the story. Big big shoutout to Jess, our GM who made us feel super welcome! She was super theatrical which really made the experience complete, not to mention she let us finish off the last puzzle after our timer ran out. Overall a really fun experience and I would definitely recommend it to anyone.

Still trapped inside! 😂
Nov 2021 • Friends
Brought half a dozen young people from my youth club as part of a weekend away. We had an 8pm slot.

From the first phone call to the point we left the premises, we were well looked after. I'm not sure if it's because of covid or a standard thing, but we had to wait outside until the point the doors were opened for our session. There is a nightclub or similar nearby with people going to it and had lots of people cycling, doing wheelies, around us whilst we were waiting. Not horrendous but something to bear in mind.

The registration on the door was swift, the opening intro clear and fun, and the room was excellent. Very detailed, engaging, and brilliant decor. Far more enjoyable than our local centre, which felt clinical and sparse throughout compared to here.

What was simply brilliant was that we had two groups completing the same room at the same time. One group got locked in, the others escaped with two minutes spare. The staff allowed the escapees to come into our room after time was up and for the young people's peers to help them complete the room (they weren't far off).

All the small things the staff did, even providing feedback to the group on their skills etc (that they'd watched through the cctv) made the experience so much better. I'd highly recommend it. Really lovely people and a great evening.

I will definitely be coming back to try the other rooms available!

Lovely place to visit with very lovely hosts - great day out!
Oct 2021
Excellent day out! Before our escape we were greeted by our host Tom, who was very lively and made us feel a lot more confident about being locked in a room for 60 minutes. After laying out the ground rules, a very interactive and entertaining scene played out with him and a boy with red hair (I did not catch his name!) - who then gave us our instructions to escape our locked doors. I won't give too much away for fear of spoilers, but inside the rooms were themed beautifully and there were plenty of challenges of different varieties to test each of us in the room, without feeling impossible. Whilst we didn't escape in the time, we were so close the hosts very kindly let us complete the final puzzle and we even got a certificate to celebrate. Thoroughly recommend for anyone who wants a different kind of day out which is more engaging that cinema or a dinner.

Hello Shane R, Thank you for your lovely review. We are so glad you enjoyed our welcoming atmosphere and felt reassured following your briefing. Tom and Tai will be happy they entertained you and put you at ease. We always aim to help you get as far as you possibly can in the time given and help you through the remaining puzzles if you would like us to, although some do choose not to so they can be challenged again another time,. But you were so close and were having so much fun that we had to make sure you finished the adventure. We hope this has given you the excitement to visit us again for another challenge in one of our other beautifully themed rooms. We hope to see you again soon, Kind regards Sammy

Great family activity
Oct 2021 • Family
A thoroughly enjoyable hour with 3 generations of the family. Our youngest was a smart 12 year old, who was able to contribute on many of the clues. It would not have been much fun for the 9 year old. Brain teasers rather than physical challenges, so great for less mobile people.

Hello Juliea84, Happy to hear that everyone enjoyed themselves. Our rooms are designed to challenge and entice people of all ages, you might be surprised by how much younger ones enjoy them. We have three levels of difficulty to accommodate for all players and often find that having the younger players can give the team a surprising upper hand. Depending on difficulty levels, you may find some of our rooms more physical than others. We hope very much to have the team back for another challenge. (Bring the 9 year old, they may be the key to your freedom!) Kind Regards, The Locked In A Room Team.

Jaynie our host was great
Oct 2021 • Couples
Brilliant evening out for my birthday. Jaynie our host was fantastic and so helpful. We were warned it may be a challenge as only 2 of us were doing the escape room - albeit it was the time lock room - but we managed to escape with just under 10 minutes to spare. Would definitely come again but it is a bit expensive for just two of you at £35 each.
