'Escape Rooms' touch down in Guildford

'Escape Rooms' touch down in Guildford

Published at 6:01am 26th August 2017.

After popping up across the country as the latest puzzle craze, Guildford now has its very own escape room.

It opens to the public for the first time in the town today (27 August).

Based in Jeffries Passage, it has been independently set up and designed by locals Tom Hartnett and Steven Insua-Cao.

If you haven't played one before or do not know what an escape room is, it is a physical adventure game where players use clues and hints to solve a series of puzzles to complete an objective.

They are usually set in fictional or historic locations.

Guildford's escape room is set in the 1930s and you have the task of solving the 'case of the missing gun'.

You are given 60 minutes to find the evidence and crack the case.

Here's what you face:

Private Investigator Larry Maxwell is unconscious in hospital, caused by an 'accident' yesterday. Vince Baxter, New York's infamous crime boss, is on trial for the murder of Roxanne's brother. Only Larry knows the whereabouts of the gun that ties Vince to the murder. There's an hour left before the judge rules. Can you find the missing evidence to send Vince down?


Like the sound of that? Well there's plenty more to come.

Guildford Escape Rooms hope to set up a second room by Christmas, with the name of Venus.

All details are very hush-hush, although we can tell you that it is about a home automation artificial intelligence robot that has gone rogue.
