Four challenging escape games and outside escape experience

Come along and meet our friendly team in central Hemel to play one of our four, fantastically mind-stretching escape room games, or our outside escape experience: race against the clock to find the hidden clues and work as a team with your friends, work colleagues or family to unravel the riddles, poleaxe puzzles and crack the codes.

There’s only one issue: you have just one hour in which to escape.

Will you accept the mission?  Come along to Hemel Escape Rooms and show us what you’re made of.

“We loved the challenge of all the rooms in Hemel and the different, more physically challenging bomb room was brilliant. I would highly recommend invaders house and arctic rooms, both are very fun and very challenging!”
