There may well be more to being recruited as a spy than an hour of codebreaking, briefcases and teamwork, but if it’s even half as exciting in real life as this escape game then it’s no wonder MI5 is so selective. clueQuest sees a team of 3-5 players get locked in a room that they won’t be able to escape from until they’ve solved enough puzzles to unlock every last lock in the place – and there are loads. Fast-paced, challenging and win-a-minute, even teams who don’t get out in time will have plenty to celebrate. The venue also has multiple versions of each games which allows you to race a second team, though we’d like to warn you that boys versus girls can cause a little post-match friction.
clueQuest launched the third game in their ovine storyline in spring 2016, Revenge of the Sheep, which sees your team search high and low to solve clues and crack codes before an evil sheep dictator turns us all into clones of Dolly. Building on their already solid track record of imaginative challenges and satisfyingly tricky puzzles, clueQuest have gone to plenty of extra trouble to make this game even more interactive, using technology, intricate props and some pretty snazzy flashing lights to make the hour fly by. A fun-filled experience whether you’re escape game lamb or mutton.
