Escape Room Rumours – 21 August 2017


Welcome to your weekly escape room rumour round-up packed full of new games, venues and media mentions.

This site is always on the look out for new games or venues that are opening, references in the media or anything else that might be of interest to the readers, so please do send an email if you spot anything of interest. That applies to owners too – feel free to send me your news for inclusion here. Don’t be shy!

On to the news

As we draw to the end of the summer, it’s been a relatively quiet week although the South East doesn’t seem to have got the memo 😉

  • East of Midlands
    • Lincolnshire Live made mention of the new Enigma Rooms venue in Retford.
  • East of England
  • Scotland
    • Locked In Edinburgh have a couple of their escape rooms, the Distillery and Animal Hospital, available as part of the Fringe.
      • and take note – Animal Hospital will close after the Fringe so if you haven’t already played, this is your last chance!
    • Don’t forget that you can also catch Agent November‘s half hour escape rooms up in Edinburgh until the end of this week.
  • South East England
    • Guildford Escape Rooms open this week with the launch of their first game, The Case of the Missing Gun.
    • First mention of a new escape room – Time 2 Escape in Rochester are aiming to open in early October.
    • The Magician is opening at The MacGuffin Project in Bournemouth.
    • Defective Detective is opening at The Panic Room Gravesend.
    • Ace Ventura has opened at The Lockey, also in Bournemouth. Note that this is a separate venue from their other two games.
  • London
    • The Case of the Dynamo Diamonds opened at Popup Escapes in Putney last week. As suggested by the venue name, it’s a popup game so you’ll only have three months if you want to go and experience it.
  • North West England
    • Lock Down Exit Games in Warrington are teaming up with a local scare attraction and a Quasar site to put together a Hallowe’en escape room.

That’s all I’m aware of. If any of the above is incorrect or if you’re aware of other news, significant discounts or competitions, then let me know via email or in the comments below and I’ll include updates in the next edition.
