Attraction Information

Get ready for an adventure hidden within a series of secret rooms and passageways, as The Escapement transports you from an Ancient Egyptian tomb to a ship aboard the seven seas.

You will have 60 minutes to escape so make every second count as you solve riddles and unravel a web of clues. This is a great way to bring families and even generations together as everyone has some code-busting ability to share.

You have a choice of two adventures; in the Egyptian Tomb, you’ll take the role of archaeologists excavating the remains of Ramsess III. All who have entered before haven’t returned - will you? On the other hand, The Pirates Of Polaris takes you down into the brig after a mutiny. It’ll take teamwork to work your way out of this sticky situation, especially with a gang of bloodthirsty pirates waiting on the other side of the door!
