About
CryptX's rooms are designed and built in-house, offering you a unique game experience. 2020 saw the opening of our latest game: Moriarty's Academy. You've come to the end of your studies under professor Moriarty, and it is time to see if you can solve his fiendish graduation challenge. Will you prove yourselves to be a criminal mastermind in waiting, or are you destined to remain a henchman forever? Our other challenge transports you to a Film Noir mystery. Somewhere within MacGuffin's is the curious book everyone wants to get their hands on. The legendary P.I. you work for is sending you into the midst of the mystery to secure the book. But the clock is ticking and MacGuffin will be back soon... Come and challenge yourself, along side a team of your friends or family. It will take cooperation and all of your skills to triumph.

MacGuffins was brilliant, felt very COVID safe from the briefing to the photo at the end. Without giving the game away there were a few touches we had not seen elsewhere all added to the fun.
We got out with a few hints, and had a great time.

The second room was even better. We had booked Moriarty’s Academy but due to CV-19 they had not yet got all the components, so we effectively did a play test of most of the room. Not saying how much was complete as that would hint how many puzzles are there. It’s a very non linear room ideally suited to a bigger group so the group can split up and do segments. However to get out you only need to solve X out of Y puzzles, so smaller groups can play too.

Some of the puzzles were real brain teasers, and the laser harp was a really fun addition, I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything like that in a room.

It wasn’t quite finished so it would be unfair to score it on the basis of what we played, talking to the Owners afterwards they gave us an outline of the puzzles not yet in place and once done it’s going to be an interesting room.

A group of 7 friends enjoyed the Santa's Workshop themed room on Friday. We had a lot of fun and are coming back for more at CryptX without a doubt. Our hosts were very friendly and welcoming. The subtle clues they gave were way too subtle for us. I think the level of help given was perfect a real credit to our host.

The staff were extremely patient with the large, vociferous group of twelve and thirteen year old girls. In hindsight, it would have been better with smaller groups and perhaps an accompanying adult. That said, the girls really enjoyed themselves and are already planning their next attempt!

We're escape room pros, having completed upwards of 20, and Moriarty's Acadamy is one of the best we've ever done! So much thought has gone into each aspect of the room, the puzzles are tough but not difficult enough to cause frustration. We had a team of 6 and each one of us was busy for the full 55 minutes we were in there. Had a great time. Great introduction and explanation of the rules too.

We completed the Santa's grotto room and managed to find all 7 reindeer and 18 presents.. Not bad as 3 of the ones we didn't get were in the same locked case!
Well thought out puzzles some easier than others and 1 or 2 that we found impossible.
You can choose to have hints from the host who is watching you and they can tailor the amount of help you get.
Our group ranged in age from 12 to over 50 so the rooms are well suited to the whole family (the 12 year old getting more than one of the adults!)

We cant wait for the next room to be set up and will certainly be booking as soon as its open

Brilliant fun 5 🌟 yet again

Really enjoyed our session today at Cambridge Cryptx ,with family including a 10/12 year old. Our host Jo
was helpful and welcoming. His extra clues were well timed and helped us make sense of a couple of clues.
Highly recommended.

A great time was had by all trying to escape from Mcguffin’s bookshop and we so nearly made it. A mixed family group with ages ranging from nine to mid sixties were all kept entertained with a variety of challenges. The games master was welcoming and helpful. We look forward to the new Cryptx game coming soon.

An escape room which is an escape from the city. Fantastic puzzles, helpful staff and fantastic covid systems in place.

Rooms are big to allow space if you're more than one household. Masks required throughout until you're in the room. Gloves for unclean items.

Fantastic all round trip. Highly recommended.

A fun escape room with a range of challenges. Great fun for adults and two teenagers (though younger children could definitely join in with several of the puzzles).
Really friendly atmosphere.
Highly recommended.
