Escapologic Nottingham - FAQS

Is there anywhere to park?

The Broadmarsh Shopping Centre is the closest car park to our Nottingham escape rooms. In Nottingham, we're on Castle Gate, which is around 400 m away from the Broadmarsh on foot. If you come out onto Maid Marian Way, turn right and follow the road up past Saint Nicholas' church (on your right), Castle Gate is the first right turn. Alternatively, if you come out the back of the Intu Broadmarsh Centre, walk up Stanford Street and Castle Gate is your first left.

What is an escape room?

An escape room or locked room puzzle is a real-world, physical game featuring challenges, riddles, and mysteries to solve within a time limit. Work as a team to break out of our themed escape rooms, which are brought to incredible life with immersive set design, special effects, sound design, and carefully selected props-many of which we have designed and built ourselves.

Who was Heritho?

A good question, brave traveller... Heritho is Escapologic's very own spectre! He haunts the dark spaces of CRYPTIC, one of our escape rooms in Nottingham. This mysterious realm is said to be cursed. The bones of the unfortunate are testament to the fact that something spooky is going on in there! Can you escape, or will Heritho claim another companion with whom to spend eternity?

Can I store personal belongings?

Ah, so you wish to leave evidence of yourself behind, before you consign your fate to the whims of our escape rooms! Good thinking, fearless seeker. In our Nottingham escape rooms, you'll find lockers just behind the reception desk. Please ask a dungeon minion, sorry staff member, if you would like to use one. We'll keep everything safe until your return. If you return... Lockers and storage available free of charge.

Can I do this if I'm pregnant?

It depends on how you feel about being in a locked room! Some of our rooms involve crawling, or dark, enclosed spaces. If you are heavily pregnant, or find darkness or the potential for scares troubling, you may not enjoy the experience. If you have had any problems during your pregnancy, or are unsure, please consult your doctor before attempting our escape rooms. Please feel free to contact us for more information.

What age is Escapologic suitable for?

The minimum age for attempting our escape rooms is 12. Accompanying adults may use their discretion if a child is slightly younger. You may wish to play each escape room without your child, to determine whether the atmosphere or themes are suited to them. Under-18s must be accompanied by an adult.

What are your opening times?

Our Nottingham escape rooms are open between 11.30am and 7pm, Monday to Thursday. On Friday and Saturday, we open the escape rooms at 10am and close them at 8.30pm. Sundays we open at 11.30am and close at 7.00pm.

Can I just turn up?

We only take advance bookings. Sessions in our escape rooms are highly sought-after, and the most popular dates fill up fast. Special events like Halloween, school holidays, Christmas, New Year, and Easter are the first to go, so do book well ahead of time if you're thinking of coming during these busy periods. You can check the availability of each escape room and book online. Alternatively, call our Nottingham escape rooms on 01158 374 840 or email at

Are there toilets on site?

Yes. We recommend going before you play! Unspeakable evil takes no time for bathroom breaks. Once the door has locked behind you, you're in for the duration. And may never come out at all... (Obviously we'll let you out whenever you like, if you need us to. But you don't want to spoil the illusion...).

What do I wear?

Our Nottingham escape rooms are located in a basement complex. The rooms may involve crawling or getting down on the floor to examine your environment. We recommend wearing comfortable clothes, which you don't mind getting a bit dusty.

What makes you different from other escape rooms?

Our escape rooms in Nottingham are the standard by which others are judged. Every room is ingeniously created from scratch. Our themes are imaginative, thrilling, and totally immersive. Our special effects are slick and realistic. We design all of our own puzzles-there's more to Escapologic than finding a key to unlock a single door. Multiple clues, rooms with personalities, rooms that could have many different solutions... It's almost as though the building itself has given birth to self-contained little worlds! You'll be completely immersed in the hunt for the exit, and freedom.

Is there disabled access?

There is a lift for disabled access in our escape rooms in Nottingham. The rooms themselves have different layouts, created in the laboratories of our mad genius to bring Escapologic's thrilling environments to life. Of all our Nottingham escape rooms, CONTRAPTION is the best for those questers with restricted mobility.

How long do I have to escape the room?

Escapologic is a race against the clock, to work out the answers to fiendish riddles and gather clues from your environment before the room claims you for its own. All of our escape rooms in Nottingham have a time limit of one hour. If you're not out by then, we'll send our minions in to rescue you!.

Do you sell refreshments?

Nottingham has a vending machine that sells small refreshments and snacks, however there are several cafes and restaurants within a 5 minute walking distance.

How many people can play at a time?

Groups of friends, larger groups, and couples have all attempted to solve the mysteries of our escape rooms! However, we recommend that Escapologic is played in groups of between 2-5 people. If you have a larger group, we can arrange for you to play your chosen room back to back. Or, if there is availability, you can make a booking to play multiple escape rooms at the same time. Escapologic is very popular, so if you are thinking of coming in a large group it's a good idea to make enquiries well in advance. All of our rooms are tailored for between 2-5 players, unfortunately we cannot allow any team sizes larger than 5 in any room, due to health and safety.
