Scarborough's first Escape Room! OPEN NOW!

Mr E Rooms is delighted to welcome young and old to his 2 Escape Rooms (with 2 more on the way!)


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.

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!

    5 star review  This was our first time doing an escape room - me and my husband and our kids aged 12 and 16. The rooms kept us very engaged for the whole hour - it was challenging but the host gave us just the right level of assistance and clues when we needed it. The puzzles were very clever and well thought out. We had the use of 3 different rooms doing the spy adventure which was a nice surprise as we had assumed we would just be in one room. All the rooms were full of brilliant props and really had a feel of the places they were representing, It was brilliant to find an activity that genuinely engages all the family. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to share a great experience with others.

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. 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?

Both “The Wizard’s Quest” and “The Mission” are suitable for a maximum of eight people.

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.

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.
