The Cryptic Escape is the first real-life escape game in Norwich, UK.
You are locked in a room for 60 minutes and you need to find a way to escape. There are a lot of objects, codes, hidden hints, that can help you to get out. You have to be smart and think out of the box to solve the puzzles you find. In a team you have to think together, work together and most importantly laugh together. The game is for teams of 2 to 5 or 6 people (room dependent), and for all ages from 16 and older. Under the age of 16, you need to be accompanied by an adult. During the event the game masters will guide you through if you get stuck. We have 3 different game rooms.

The enigmatic biochemist, Doctor Lev Pasted, has disappeared. Before he vanished there were many rumours that the doctor had created some kind of powerful elixir. Its effects are as yet unknown, but are thought to be revolutionary. Be the first to enter his secret study, find the elixir and escape before this great discovery is lost forever!
Here at Cryptic Escape, we have a dark secret. A part of the building has been occupied for centuries by a sinister tenant- the ghost of a little girl. Do you dare to enter her Haunted realm and learn the secrets of her past? Will those secrets help you to release her tormented spirit from these walls? Only the fearless will succeed- the faint of heart will be condemned to an eternity by her side...
(This room is based on a true ghost story about the building. It is not suitable for players under the age of 14.)
