About
We are a family-run, independent Escape Room Business with amazing escape rooms. Escape Entertainment has 60-minute live escape games for up to 10 players. Our rooms are designed, built and run by ourselves, so we give you a truly unique experience when you visit. Our rooms are completely computer-controlled, meaning that we create some of the best high-end puzzles you'll find in any escape room. We give all our customers a personal welcome, followed by an introduction to the game they have booked. After the game, we always take the time to talk through the experience, note down any feedback and share how we put our escape rooms together! We can't wait to see you! - Ollie & Chris

    5 Star Quality Escape Room
    The escape room experience is one of the best I've played. Theming is excellent, the use of technology is magical at times and the puzzles match well and are rewarding to solve. Ollie and Chris are masters of their craft! We'll certainly be heading back to try the other rooms. Cheers guys.
    Thanks for the review Nathan, It was great fun hosting you in Castle Heir and can't wait for you to return!

    Amazing for all the family!
    Interesting and thrilling, not only was the staff accommodating a friendly, but the room itself we attempted was exciting to solve. We left learning new and intriguing knowledge which inspired the escape room itself, making the experience all the more engaging for all of us that played. Would certainly recommend to anybody looking for a unique and immersive challenge with friends or family while having plenty of laughs along the way!
    Thanks for the review, Mission Intercept is a great room with all the details we've been able to cram into it! We're glad you enjoyed your time playing it. :)

    Cool escape room experience
    We played the Castle Heir room in July as a couple. We’ve done a handful of escape rooms before and found this one good fun and probably about a 5/10 difficulty. The hosts were great and talked us through everything after the game and explained a little about the other games. Would recommend!
    Thanks for the review Alex! Castle Heir is naturally our easiest room due to the nature of the puzzles being more interactive and simple to understand (It's doing them that is the hard part!). We always enjoy taking the time (When possible) to talk through the rooms after the games and hear all the feedback from the teams! :D

    Amaing experience, much more involved than some escape room chains
    A group of 8 of us completed the Chernobyl room, and it was really fun! There was a lot to do and it was a well designed experience. Each team member had something to do and felt a part of the experience, unlike some other escape room experiences we've had.
    Thank you for the review. It was great fun having you all and we're glad you enjoyed Chernobyl so much. It really is the perfect room for big teams!

    Great experience!!
    We came here after doing a few different escape rooms in Cheltenham and so glad we did! We thought we were pros but the room was challenging but really enjoyable! Our guide Chris was fantastic, gave us clues just as we needed them and explained lots about the room and its story! Really enjoyed ourselves will be back to complete the other rooms soon
    Thank you for the review, Charlotte! We take a lot of pride in the research and details we put into our rooms, glad you enjoyed it :)

    Excellent escape room - fully recommend.
    We thoroughly enjoyed “Mission Intercept”. Right amount of challenge and worked very well for two people. Theme was interesting, artefacts were high quality (and often authentic!) and everything in exceptional working order (not always the case with escape rooms). Debrief after was a nice touch. Fully recommend. We will be back for another room in the future.
    Thank you for the review Amy! We love to chat to the teams after the games to make sure noone misses out on any of the facinating details in our rooms!

    Brilliant Escape Room
    Very enjoyable Escape Room. We did Chernobyl which was the harder Escape Rook but was really fun. Chris the host was very welcoming and made our time even more enjoyable. Definitely worth the money and will hopefully visit again soon to do a different room!
    Thank you for the review! We hope to see you again soon.

    Three very different rooms, all good fun
    A group of 4 escape room enthusiasts played all 3 current games here at the weekend and had a blast. Chris and Ollie were great hosts and clearly really passionate about their carefully created games. The level of real historical detail that went into Mission Intercept and Chernobyl were particularly impressive. Of all the games, my personal favourite was Mission Intercept, with the WW2 theme, and a lovely mix of both code breaking and physical puzzles. Another team mate loved Chernobyl which is a real test of teamwork when there's so much happening all at the same time. If you're an experienced ER played I'd recommend Mission Intercept or Chernobyl while families and new players will like the more guided experience of Castle Heir. Definitely recommended if you're in the area. Two of our team hit their 150th rooms at Escape Entertainment and Ollie and Chris were sweet enough to arrange some escake for us. Really kind and great customer service.
    Thank you for the Review! It was great fun having you all for your last day in the area! Amazing to hear how many rooms you were able to squeeze in while also staying at the Escape Room Cottage in Tewkesbury! We hope you all had a safe journey back home and hope you enjoy the next 150 escape rooms together!

    Great Place
    We were a group of six ranging from 16 to 70 and we all had a fantastic time. We did the easiest of the rooms and finished within the hour. It was challenging but do-able and great fun. We would certainly recommend the experience to anyone who likes puzzles. After completing the challenge Chris or Ollie talk you through so you can understand how it all works, which is an excellent extra. Thanks for a great experience.
    Thank you for the review, Julia. It was great fun hosting you in Castle Heir, and hope to see you all again soon!

    Challenging and fun.
    The first time we've done an escape room, and we had a great time doing Mission Intercept. There was a wide enough range of puzzles to keep my 11-year old daughter and a 60-year old WWII history buff fully involved and working as a team. The post game debriefing was interesting too. I'd happily recommend this.
    Thank you for the review! 😁

Went with my family (kids are 10 and 12). Really fun and challenging, and post-experience we were given some fascinating insight into the background of the escape room. Chris was an outstanding host and I can’t recommend this highly enough. Brilliant activity for the entire family.

This was a great experience for my 7 year old daughter who thoroughly enjoyed her first escape room - Castle Heir. A great way to spend a winter’s afternoon. Thanks to Chris- a delightful host who was clearly passionate about what he did.

We went for the expert level Chernobyl escape room today as a group and we had a great experience! Chris was super helpful and made the experience fun for us, taking the time to talk to us afterwards about the details of the Chernobyl meltdown and the significance of the puzzles in the room in connection with the events of the disaster. We were gutted to hear the escape rooms will be closing down at the end of the year so will make sure to come again before they're gone! Thank you Chris for a great time and well done for all your hard work and creativity engineering the rooms!

What a brilliant escape room! It was so well put together, and loads of challenges ..... not simply the find a key or combination sort of many escape rooms.
After a verrrry slow start and a couple of well timed hints we were amazed to escape with time to spare.
Loved the way Chris gave us a bit of history behind the room, and the inspiration for some of the puzzles.
Great way to spend an hour!

A brilliant family adventure that brought out the detective in all of us. We took part in the Castle Heir challenge which was suitable for all ages with tasks to keep us thinking and to all take part in within a mystery story. Highly recommend for families with children in KS2 upwards - as well as groups of adults too!

Passionate host Chris gives you thorough insight to the challenge you are undertaking, in character. We had our girls aged 9 and 13 with us, who both absolutely loved the experience. Great activity to do as a family for a half term treat! No phones, team work and got us thinking! Loved it, thank you

Fantastic theme of WWII/Codebreakers. So thoroughly researched making it a fully immersive experience. Lots of laughs (at our stupidity 🤣) along the way. Chris and Ollie are fun and informative. We finished by the skin of our teeth!! Will definitely book again.

We had a great time. Chris was friendly and engaging. We were challenged by the room and so enjoyed trying to work out how to complete the room/puzzle. Definitely recommend Escape Entertainment Escape Rooms and look forward to trying the other rooms!

As a grownup family we escaped from Chernobyl and Mission Intercept rooms in the last two weekends, and feel that these are among the best escape rooms we've experienced, and we've done a fair few.

Good puzzles and challenges, with well thought-through themes. Love how the games masters walk through the whole room afterwards, explaining some historical background and each of the puzzles.

Highly recommended! Thanks!
