We offer you an experience different from other classic group activities. You will have the opportunity to test your concentration, observation, problem solving and decision-making skills while having fun at the same time.
You can play this game together with your family members or colleagues from work or play it as a corporate game and have fun with them for one hour.
Our NUCLEAR NIGHTMARE game is designed for players that have little or no previous escape room experience and you can choose to play at Standard, Advanced or Genius level to suit your team’s abilities. See the next question for the difference between each of these levels.
Our AMMUNITION game isn’t for the faint-hearted or novice player, as the puzzles are quite tricky so we would recommend that players have a considerable amount of previous escape room experience or be extremely good at solving puzzles and codes!
If you’ve booked to play our NUCLEAR NIGHTMARE game, you can choose from 3 different gaming levels:-
Standard: we suggest this level for teams where all or some members have played 5 or less escape rooms.
Rating: Moderately difficult.
Lots of automated advice messages and up to 10 clues.
Advanced: aimed at teams where all members have played more than 5 escape rooms.
A few automated advice messages and up to 5 clues.
Genius: for the highly experienced escape room players with 50+ escape rooms under their belts.
Rating: Extremely difficult.
Very few automated advice messages and up to 3 clues.
Don’t worry, we promise to let you out at the end of the game regardless of what level you choose and whether you manage to avert a ‘nuclear disaster’!
We would recommend you wear comfortable clothes and shoes. You may need to kneel down and look under objects so don’t wear your best clothes. Ladies, during your 60 minutes in the room you will be walking or standing for most of the time so we don’t recommend high heels!

We have a minimum age of 14 although this may be lowered with prior approval. Just give us a call. All teams must have at least one adult (over 18) in the team.
Yes, we have a large shared car park. You can park for a maximum of two hours. This will give you enough time to have 60 minutes of exhilarating fun and not have to worry about rushing back to your car.
There is a huge choice of family friend pubs and restaurants nearby, and The Steel Tank Alehouse is next door to Genius Escapes (https://www.facebook.com/thesteeltank/) so do check them out if you fancy a drink before or after your visit.

We will accept teams of 2-8 players for our Nuclear Nightmare experience, and teams of 2-4 players for the Ammunition room. Depending on ability and experience, we sometimes find that teams of 2 or 4 escape in a faster time than teams of 8, but with the option of choosing from Standard, Advanced or Genius level, players will get the best from the experience and are guaranteed a fun time! If you have a larger group than 8, please give us a call as we can accommodate more with prior agreement as we could rotate you between the different rooms or stagger your booking times.
We can only take advance bookings to ensure that the rooms are set up and ready for your arrival. We get especially busy at weekends and during school holidays so it’s always advisable to book well in advance. You can check availability on our Bookings page.
We open 10am to 10pm 7 days a week. You can check our current availability on our Bookings page.
