Escapologic Nottingham - FAQS

Is there anywhere to park?

The St James NCP is the closest car park to our Nottingham escape rooms. In Nottingham, we're on Castle Gate, which is a 5 minute walk away from the St James NCP on foot. If you come out onto Maid Marian Way, turn right and follow the road down past Ye Olde Salutation Inn, turn left onto castle gate and follow the road round. 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?

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.

However, do feel free to call to find out if there are any limitations on the room you wish to book.
