We have been closed since March 2020 due to the ongoing Covid-19 crisis but, in accordance with government guidelines, will be ropening soon with all appropriate Covid Safety measures in place.
Date To Be Announced.
In groups from two to twelve players, you are locked in one of our themed rooms for 60 minutes and have to escape. Sounds simple? Our rooms are fully immersive, story-driven experiences where you’ll need to work together as a team to decipher clues, complete puzzles and work out exactly what’s real and what’s not if you want to beat our Puppet Masters. Whether you’re new to escape rooms or a seasoned expert, we’re sure you’ll be surprised.
You need a minimum of two players to book, but larger groups stand more chance of completing the rooms.

On Foot: Our entrance can be easy to miss! We are On Griffin Street which runs between the High Street and Lower Dock Street. If walking along Griffin Street away from the High Street heading towards the bus stops on Lower Dock Street, look for the double grey fire doors about a third of the way along the street on your left-hand side before the first side entrance to the market.
Travelling to us by car: There is no parking on Griffin Street. The nearest car park is NCP pay and display on Newport High Street. On exiting the car park onto Newport High Street head towards town centre and turn left onto Griffin Street Immediately after passing Newport Indoor Market on your left. There are alternative nearby car parks within easy walking distance at Friar's Walk or on Stow Hill.
By bus: Newport bus station drops off for a number of locations just 300 metres from our venue, at the end of Griffin Street.
By bike: You can bring your bike inside where it will be kept safe - no need to lock it up on the street!
