Escape the Room Games in Norfolk

Escape the Room Games in Norfolk

Have you got what it takes to escape? Escape the room games originated in Japan and the craze has since spread far and wide, with Norfolk having its fair share of offerings.  If being “locked” in a room with a timer, searching for clues, solving logic puzzles, breaking codes, using your powers of observation and problem solving and opening locks before the allocated time runs out, then this is an activity for you!

The games vary tremendously, some are focused on finding items within a room, some are more like brain teasers and solving logic problems, others can require physical dexterity and there are even virtual reality escape rooms. One thing that all the games have in common is that they are all high-pressured, adrenaline-fuelled, fun adventures that must be completed within an allotted time. Play with friends, family, work colleagues or complete strangers and see why escape rooms have garnered an almost cult-like following in recent years.

Here are some of the best room escape games in Norfolk:
