ABOUT US

In January 2015 we launched The Great Escape Game. We are known as a ‘live escape room experience’, where groups of friends, family and workmates try to figure out how to escape scenario-specific rooms.

With the door locked and the clock ticking, you must work together to search for clues and progress by solving puzzles.

We currently have 16 escape rooms across our three sites. Two in the centre of Sheffield and one in the centre of Leeds.

Our prices start from just £15 per person, depending on your group size and what time you play, with special discounts for schools, charities and students.

Our Sheffield Sidney Street site offers what the industry calls ‘Generation 1’ rooms. These are generally non-technical rooms with simple mechanisms such as padlocks. Our two other sites boast ‘Generation 2’ rooms. Here we’ve really ramped things up a notch to create a truly immersive experience featuring smarter game mechanics, with electronic controllers and sensors, light systems and interactive screens. It’s more like a Hollywood film set! It is at these sites where we are have incorporated a fully licensed bar, food offering and corporate/ event space, so we can create unforgettable events for you and your team again and again!

Innovation is our specialism. We invest tens of thousands of pounds into our Generation 2 rooms, to stay ahead in the field and now employ over 50 staff from the Sheffield and Leeds area.
