What is an Escape Room? Escape Rooms are games designed around a theme or story-line. A team will be challenged with puzzles, riddles and codes using communication and teamwork to escape the room in one hour.
Is it a real Cave? Yes! How cool?! Our rooms have been carefully designed to deliver the unexpected and have varying themes that allow us to use the amazing site without limiting ourselves creatively. Our rooms are truly immersive and our sets are super-realistic. We should say that at no point will you encounter running water and hard hats are not necessary! We are a Cave-based venue but you won't be "Caving" in the traditional sense!

What should we wear? Nottingham's Caves are formed from Sandstone so we'd recommend that you wear clothing that is comfortable and which you don't mind getting a little dusty. Decent footwear is a must - trainers, boots, and sturdy shoes are fine but no heels, sandals etc. The average temperature in our rooms is 13-15 Degrees Celsius so you may want to bring a jumper although it soon warms up as your team zooms into action!
How may people can play a game? Each of our rooms are suitable for teams of 2-5 people.
What time should we arrive? Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your booked slot for your team briefing. Entry will not be permitted before this time.
Do you have parking? We don’t have any parking on site. However, there is pay and display street parking along Mansfield Road and also the Victoria Shopping Centre's multi-story carpark is located just across the road.
Can I store personal items? We provide lockers for your valuables which can be used during your game. Please note that leaving personal belongings in the lockers is done so at your own risk.
Can we bring an extra person on the day? Yes, we accept up to 5 players per room. We can just take a card payment for the extra player before your game starts.
Can we pay by cash? Unfortunately not, we only accept payment by card for bookings.
What if I need to cancel? We do not offer refunds for cancelled bookings. If 7 days notice is given, we will try to reschedule your booking to a suitable time and date.
Do you have disabled access? Unfortunately due to the location of our rooms being in a cave, the site is unsuitable for disabled guests who have mobility issues.
What age are your escape rooms suitable for? We'd recommend 12yrs+ but children must be accompanied by a paying adult of 18 years and over. Children are priced at the same rate as adults unless you book to play during school holidays when we regularly run promotional deals for families. Unfortunately our rooms are not suitable for babies and younger children, nor do we have access for prams.
Are your games scary? Our games are not designed with the fear factor in mind but you may experience low lighting, special effects and a few surprises along the way. You could find yourself in some relatively small spaces and you will be underground. If you have any questions or concerns, do give us a call and we'll be happy to chat you through the specifics.
Do you have toilet facilities? We have a mens urinal and a unisex toilet for our guests.
Do you sell drinks/snacks? We do sell drinks, confectionary and crisps although if you're looking for something more substantial, Fox Talbots Coffee House is right next door and they do a great range of food and beverages.
Can I participate if I’m pregnant? Due to the nature of some of our games we ask you to give us a call so we can talk you through what to expect. You can then decide for yourself or contact your GP/midwife for advice.
Do you do walk-ins? Unfortunately not, although you may be able to book on the same day. Please give us a call for availability.
