Scarborough's first Escape Room! OPEN NOW!

Mr E Rooms is delighted to welcome young and old to his 4 Escape Rooms (with 1 more on the way!)


Vampire’s Curse
In 1897 a dark shadow the itself across the world, casting a threat unlike any ever seen before or since. The demonic vampire Dracula rose once more to summon the legions of the undead and Victorian England was thrown into a maelstrom of terror and fear. According to legend, brave vampire hunters led by Jonathan Harker eventually killed Dracula once and for all… But what if the legends were wrong? What if the Count survived, and returned once more with vengeance in his icy heart?

Dare you take on The Vampire’s Curse – the latest game at Escape Room Scarborough? But be warned… He’s watching you!
WARNING! – This game is rated our hardest, and is therefore particularly recommended for teams who have played escape rooms before.

Wizard’s Quest

He challenges you to immerse yourself in the magical world of the Wizard’s School, where, starting in the Spells and Potions Room, you must solve cunning puzzles and fiendish riddles to gain access to the Professor’s Study where you are challenged to find the only spell which can save the world from the impending threat of Dark Forces. Click Wizard’s Quest Gallery for images or book now below.

The Mission

Alternatively, you may see yourself as a Secret Agent, charged with saving the world from certain doom by disarming a nuclear bomb which is poised to launch. You start by receiving your mission, which will require clear thought, creative thinking and bravery, before eventually going under cover in the Cold War Soviet Union in your bid to save the world!

“Terminating Here”

A serial killer is stalking the London Underground, taunting the police as he picks off his unfortunate victims. He has already picked his next victim, who will die in just one hour unless your team of crack detectives can unravel his clues and save her life. You have just sixty minutes to find the killer’s lair and carry out the ultimate rescue. Are you up to it?

Can you save the girl’s life?

**PLEASE NOTE** ‘Terminating Here’ contains some darker themes which means it may not be suitable for children under the age of 13 – if you want more information and guidance please get in touch and we will happily discuss its suitability with you.

“The Million Pound Heist” – EXCITING NEW GAME

You find yourselves in a seedy London nightclub owned by notorious gangster Freddie McGregor. You have just sixty minutes to raid the joint to recover the £1,000,000 that he cheated from you in a high stakes poker game. You can steal anything you want – cash, diamonds, shares or anything else that takes your fancy – but you must recover at least £1 million to come out on top.

And don’t take longer than sixty minutes, because when the steel gates slam shut you will be trapped in there until Freddie returns.

And he won’t take too kindly to finding thieves waiting for him…

  • 5 star review  Thoroughly enjoyed our time at the Escape Room Scarborough. I did an escape room previously in Leeds, and found this one to be more intense and exciting! It really worked up a sweat and had us all on our toes to solve the clues until the very end! Would highly recommend visiting for business and/or pleasure! Five star experience!!

    5 star review  Super fun! Would definitely recommend this multi-room puzzle experience. A great price plus it's right on our doorstep, so no need to travel too far. One day I would really like to go back and tackle one of the other rooms.

    thumb James Porter

    5 star review  Our first time we’ve ever done an escape room & it didn’t disappoint at all, we opted for the Terminating Here underground station room & managed to complete it (just) with 50 seconds to go!!! Fantastic way to kill an hour & was great fun, we will be back to do the other two rooms!!! 10/10

    thumb Jez Banks

    5 star review  A tiptop adventure and a great way to spend a frenetic hour on a Sunday. I would like to think I contributed a bit more to my group than just confused panic blurting out statements such as “ooh a key, ooh a lock, ooh a puzzle”. Thanks to Neil of Escape Rooms who was the master of ceremony helping out with subtle guidance through the use of wizarding fangled technology. Cheers Neil will be doing this again.

    thumb RobotBenjy Nolan

    5 star review  Fantastic place, great host and enough challenges to keep you on your feet for the full duration! First escape room and highly recommend it for everyone who's up for something new or a good time with friends.

    thumb Luke Francis Patrick

    5 star review  This was our first escape room and we completed the Russian spy mission, thoroughly enjoyed it... Makes you think in a way that you don't know you are capable of - would absolutely recommend to everyone! Can't wait to do the other missions! Massive thank you to the host who made it such a great experience from the minute we stepped through the door. We are now totally addicted to escape rooms

    thumb Claire Stephenson
  • 5 star review  Absolutely brilliant experience! First time in an escape room and it was so well thought out and really well delivered! I certainly couldn't have come up with something this detailed. Great time had by all, would definitely recommend (even with the teasing about my mannequin phobia!)

    thumb Emma Hartley

    5 star review  Great place, great fun. Ideal for family groups, friends and corporate team building events. My work team and I went along and managed to save the world (just!); the puzzles get you thinking and provide lots of laughs too. We had a great time, and are really looking forward to the new rooms opening so we can go again!

    thumb Alison Brock

    5 star review  Great experience and something completely different for a start of a Scarborough night out. We even managed to diffuse the bomb with 4 minutes to spare. Loved it and can't wait to do the next one now. Highly recommend it xxx

    thumb Lindsey Prior-Mckie

    5 star review  Would definitely recommend! It was such a laugh! Unfortunately we didn't save the world and I'd go as far as saying we weren't even close! However, I can confidently say if we hadn't have had to carry Joe the whole way through we would have! If he doesn't shape up on the next one then this trio is becoming a due! Can't wait for the next one!!

    thumb Kathy Mattinson

    5 star review  Me and the family went for a bit of a different experience and it did not disappoint. Youngest child was 5 and he was really involved and enjoyed it. Would certainly recommend and we will be back to do the other room next time we are in Scarborough.... Great experience. Thank you

    thumb Andy Phelan

    5 star review  We came to Scarborough for my Birthday weekend and the escape room was what I wanted to do. there were nine of us in total. I opted for the Wizard Quest. An entertaining hour ensued with lots of laughs and some under the breath cursing lol. We had two rooms to sort out and the hosts gave just the right amount of help without giving to much away. We made it with 32 seconds to spare. Highly recommend the escape room Scarborough give it a go you won't be disappointed.

    thumb Michael Lawrence
  • 5 star review  This was out first time in an escape room and we had a great time in The Wizardry room as a group of 4. Very well thought out challenges that keep you engaged throughout the 60 minutes. Really liked the addition of having a tablet which can be used for the host to give some hints and us to request clues. Also liked that it was over 2 rooms and we weren't just in 1 room for the hour. Would deffinitley recommend visiting. Thanks

    thumb Steve Bedder

    5 star review  We had great fun (it didn't come to blows, and we are still all good friends thankfully) and managed to complete the wizard room with seconds to spare... And a teeny bit of help with the last puzzle! Great idea for something a little bit different to do and to get out of the cold and rain. Great way for our group to help celebrate a 70th Birthday weekend. Fully recommend.

    thumb Sharon Barnard

    5 star review  We enjoyed every minute of this, it was well thought out and lots of detail has gone into this! We got help when we needed it promptly, and it really made us think! Well worth the money. Brilliant time, would definitely recommend and will be back next year. Thanks!

    thumb Meg Heath

    5 star review  Me and my friends did the Wizards study escape room this evening and we thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it, 60 to be exact! Really well thought out and planned rooms which were challenging and fun at the same time! Would definitely come again and do the other room and hopefully the new rooms being prepared! When we finished we chatted about it alot and one of my friends suggested how funny it would be if you could buy a recording dvd of your time in the rooms as a keepsake! Just an idea!

    thumb Ellen Johnson-Blake

    5 star review  Visited here on our works night it. Fantastic fun with some competition thrown in. A great laugh and the guys are brilliant 🙂 thankyou for a great time!

    thumb Caz Jones

    5 star review  Just visited for a work night out and had such a fab time. First time doing escape room and won’t be the last!

What is Escape Room Scarborough?

Escape Room Scarborough is a live escape-room experience. Participants are “locked” in a room, and have only sixty minutes to solve a series of clues, puzzles and riddles to enable them to successfully complete their mission and ‘escape’ the room – and so win the game.

What makes Escape Room Scarborough so special?

We are the only escape room experience on this part of the beautiful North Yorkshire Coast – Scarborough is one of the most visited locations in the whole of the UK. We have invested a huge amount of time and energy to make sure that the rooms provide a stunning and unforgettable hour in your life – so that (succeed or not) you will have a simply brilliant time.

We are located in a beautiful listed building in the very heart of the town, within easy walking distance of restaurants, bars and other amenities. In fact we are next door to the Courtyard, a lovely bar, and two doors away from a Brewers’ Fayre restaurant and pub.

We have sought authentic props and furniture to make your experience memorable – we like to think of ourselves as the ‘world’s smallest theme park’! Every experience is accompanied by themed music specially composed for us by an award-winning composer who has worked in theatre and film for over thirty years.

When you first enter our building you will be invited to take a seat in Mr E Rooms’ drawing room, which will instantly evoke memories of times gone by. And then, when the time comes, you will be escorted to begin your mission…

Where Can We Park?

There are a number of multi-story car parks within easy walking distance. The NCP multi-story car park on North Street, the Brunswick Centre car park on York Place and the Palm Court car park on Falconer’s Road are all less than 10 minutes away. There is also some (limited) on-street car parking nearby.

What are the prices?

Prices are based on an initial room hire of £50, which enables two people to take part. Each additional person is then charged at just £10 per person. This means that the more people there are in your group, the cheaper per person it is! For a team of six people it is just £15 a head.

How ‘Scary’ are the rooms?

We do not consider the rooms to be scary. In ‘The Wizard’s Quest’ you will spend time in a room which is dark (but not so dark you cannot see), and in “The Mission” you will spend time in a room based on a nuclear weapons facility. There are flashing lights (so if you think you may be affected by these please let us know so we can disable them for your game) and occasional sound effects. Terminating Here is our ‘darkest’ room, and may not be suitable for children under the age of 13. If you have any concerns (eg if you are bringing children) please ring us first so we can set your mind at rest.

Do I need to be ‘clever’?

The puzzles and riddles in 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 will do everything we can to accommodate people with disabilities. 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 all games involves climbing at least one set 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 the game clock will continue during your absence.

How many can play?

All rooms are suitable for a maximum of 10 players

Are there any Age Restrictions?

We recommend that 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 and to prevent them from getting stuck too often. However, we are constantly amazed at how it is often the youngest member of the team who will suddenly find the all-important clue. Again, if you need any guidance on age-suitability, please do not hesitate to contact us.

When are you open?

We are open Monday to Friday from 11am to 7pm and slightly later on weekends.

Whichever experience you choose, you and your friends will have a maximum of sixty minutes to complete your task.
With two more rooms planned for early 2018, there is no shortage of excitement and challenge at Mr E Rooms’ Emporium of Curios, Clues and Conundra.

Got a question?
