The Supervillains Lair
The Witches Tower
A Message From Will & Matt
Following the closure of our venues on Friday 20th March we couldn’t sit and do nothing for the foreseeable future, that would be boring! We are proud to announce that just 5 days later we have launched Know Escape Online!
You can book these today at https://www.knowescape.co.uk/online-escape-rooms/
We are now able to bring the Know Escape magic to your home via the internet. Just like our physical rooms we won’t be giving too much away but we can tell you that you will be joined in your game by the games masters from our venues who will be running your games as your eyes, ears hands and trusty guide companion. These games are a lot of fun and can be played with friends and family anywhere in the world.
Whilst our venues are closed we are still shipping EXiT Games, Adventure Games and Unlock! Games too which can be found for sale at https://www.knowescape.co.uk/gift-shop
Finally, rest assured as soon as it is safe to do so we will be re-opening our doors. If you are due to visit us during the period of closure someone will be in touch to discuss re-arranging your game.
We thank you for your support and understanding in what is not just a difficult time for us but the whole industry, country and the rest of the world.

You have 60 minutes to escape the room.
If you fail to escape within 60 minutes the gamesmaster will let you out. You are more than welcome to come back and try again at any time.
This varies game to game. Please check the game info for further details.
If you are going to be late please phone us on 01245 808088 to let us know. Where possible we will try and make sure your game is the full 60 minutes, however we may need to shorten your game depending how late you are.
If you are more than 15 minutes late we may have to cancel your game. Unfortunately you will not be eligible for a refund.
All will be explained when you arrive.

No, we work to keep our games a surprise for everyone who comes to play.
No, but there is an independantly run coffee shop serving tasty tea, coffee, cold drinks, sandwiches and cake which you can enjoy before or after your game.
Please contact us before you book to discuss whether your needs can be met. We do not think anything in the room will be a problem to most people, but want to make sure you are safe at all times.
You are competing to be the fastest team to escape our rooms.
No! Never! If you book a room it is yours for the duration of the game, we never add additional players from outside of your booking to make up numbers.
