You’ll spend the night in our luxury self-contained loft apartment (directly above the Bishop’s Stortford Escape Rooms venue).
You arrive at Cousin Angie’s flat the day after the bank robbery, and you’ve not seen Angie since the night before as she ran off down the high street with the gold in her dress and a policeman chasing her. You unlock her front door and head up the staircase to find the answer phone flashing. Angie is not here, but she has left a message, something is very wrong, you can hear it in her voice, Angie needs your help…. again.
Together you have from the moment you arrive until noon the following day to solve the puzzles, unlock the riddles and complete our overnight escape room experience.
This is a real-life overnight game, there are actual beds, and you will sleep in them.
The sofa is comfortable, and there is no camera in sight (you’ll have to phone a dedicated number if you need to use one of your three clues!).
The ultimate overnight experience from Know Escape! Don’t forget your toothbrush!
