We are absolutely delighted to still be #1 for fun things to do in Scarborough on Trip Advisor

We thank you all for your amazing feedback!

And look forward to seeing you all again soon.


What is Mr E Rooms?

Mr E Rooms – Escape Room Scarborough is a live action, real world escape room experience.

Your team will enter a themed room and have 60 minutes to solve a series of puzzles, riddles and clues to enable you to successfully complete your chosen adventure and win the game – and therefore win the game.

What makes Mr E Rooms special?

Mr E Rooms is the only escape room experience in Scarborough and has a great 5 star rating from our visitors over the past four years.

We’re also rated as number one on Trip Advisor for fun things to do in Scarborough.

Mr E Rooms is located in a beautiful historic building in the very heart of the town, within easy walking distance of restaurants, bars and other amenities.

Mr E Rooms has invested a huge amount of time and energy into creating a series of distinct game ‘theatres’ – sourcing many authentic props making sure that each room provides an immersive experience for you and your team.

Where you are the stars in your own adventure!

We like to think of ourselves as the ‘world’s smallest theme park’!

So, whether you win or lose you will have a simply brilliant time.

Many of games include original theme music specially composed for us by an award-winning composer who has worked in theatre and film for over thirty years.

When you first arrive you will be greeted at our box-office to collect your tickets for your performance.

Once you have your tickets you can choose from our range of refreshments before heading down into the “Flogsmead” wizard’s tavern where you will receive your pre-game briefings. You will then be directed to your “theatre” game room to begin your adventure…

Where Can We Park?

We do not have on-site parking facilities so please factor this into your visit.

There are a number of multi-story car parks within easy walking distance.

The Brunswick Centre car park on York Place and the Palm Court car park on Falconer’s Road are all less than 5 minutes away. The NCP multi-story car park on North Street is less than 10 minutes away and there is also some (limited) on-street car parking nearby.

What are the prices?

Prices are based on room hire of £30 plus £10 per team member.

This means that the more people there are in your group, the cheaper per person it is!

2 Person game £50 = £25pp
3 Person game £60 = £20pp
4 Person game £70 = £17.50pp
5 Person game £80 = £16pp
6 Person game £90 = £15pp
7 Person game £100 = £14.30pp
8 Person game £110 = £13.75pp

How ‘Scary’ are the rooms?

Our game rooms are not intended to be scary.

However, younger children or people of a sensitive disposition may find some of the games to be outside their comfort zone in some of our more adult themed games.

If you have any doubts or concerns please contact us before booking.

Do I need to be ‘clever’?

The puzzles and riddles and clues within the rooms are designed to be challenging and thought-provoking.

However, you do not need any specific skills or knowledge to be successful – communication, team working and creative thinking are more important than being ‘clever’.

And if you get stuck, your gamesmaster will be able to provide a clue to get you back on track.

Can people with disabilities play?

We currently have two ground floor games and we will do everything we can to accommodate people with disabilities for our other games

Please contact us in advance to discuss any individual needs you or your team members may have.

However, please note that we are in a listed building (built in the 1700s) and therefore there is very limited wheelchair accessibility.

Access to most games involves climbing at least one flight of stairs, which unfortunately may limit their availability to some people with mobility-restricting disabilities.

Are we really locked in?

No – you are never physically locked in a room.

You may leave at any time (eg for a comfort break) but remember, the game clock will continue to count down during your absence.

How many can play?

All rooms are suitable for 2-6 players

But many of our adventures can offer capacity for 8-10 players.

Check the specific games for their capacity and availability.

For larger groups that require multiple games to play at the same start time contact us on 01723 372147

Who can play?

Anyone can join in with an escape room experience!

We have happily entertained players from 9 weeks to over 90 years old!

However groups of under 16s should have at least one adult in their team.

This is to ensure that there is someone there to help with certain puzzles, maybe reach certain things and to prevent them from getting stuck too often – although your gamesmaster will always be on hand too!

This being said, we are constantly amazed at how often it is that the youngest member of any team will suddenly be the one that finds that all-important clue.

If you need any guidance on age-suitability, check the game information on the website or call us on 01723 372147.


When are we open?

We are open everyday (excluding Christmas day and New Years day)

Our games are available to book online between 10:30am and 7:30pm

Check our Book Now section for start times for specific games.

If you require different start times for a game we will try to accomodate you where possible just call us on 01723 372147 and we’ll do what we can.

Whichever adventure you choose, you and your friends will have a maximum of sixty minutes to complete your task.
