About
Live in or visiting the Chelmsford area and looking to try something amazing? Come and have a go at the towns permanent escape experience! Chelmsford Escape Rooms is located a short distance from the town centre with free parking outside. Escape rooms are a form of live entertainment where you’ll solve a series of puzzles in order to escape before the time runs out. Discover clues and receive hints in our fully immersive purpose built themed environment. This is an interactive event. Games Masters will greet you and help you throughout your experience, but they will not be physically present inside of the escape room (unless otherwise stated). In teams of 2-10 people come and see if you can escape the room in 60 minutes. Sounds scary? It’s really not; a little common sense and logical thinking and you could escape!
Duration: 1-2 hours

    Escape Rooms - Chelmsford
    Staff went out of our their way to change us to another game after starting one that proved to be a bit too scary for my partner! Really appreciate them going out of their way to do so. We had a great time - really great service and a credit to the organisation!
    Hi Chris, many thanks for leaving such a lovely review and for highlighting our staff going above and beyond to make your experience great! I will pass your kind comments onto Alex and Ellery. I'm so glad you both had a great time with us and we hope to see you again soon for another one of our escape room challenges!

    Great family fun
    Family fun at the Chelmsford Escape rooms. Myself and my husband took our daughters (15 & 9) to do The Crazy Cat Lady yesterday. Ashleigh was our games master, and she was brilliant. We all worked together really well and managed to get out with 11 minutes to spare!! We are already planning our next escape room visit.
    Hi Helen, thank you for taking the time to leave a lovely review! I have passed your lovely feedback to Ashleigh! I'm so glad you had a great experience, 11 minutes is very impressive! We look forward to seeing you again soon for another one of our challenges!

    Family Escape Room Experience
    An amazing fun night, well organised. Great for the family to work together, and a huge sense of accomplishment when we finished with less than 2 minutes to spare! Would love to try more rooms soon.

    Best Escape Room company we've visited!
    Excellent! Thinking of booking?...do it! Crazy Cat Lady room was amazing, so well thought out, clever and fun! Matt our games master was great, friendly and helpful, we felt really looked after. Friendly staff all round. We are very excited to do more rooms, definitely more imaginative that other escape room companies we have been to in the past.

    Great Experience and recommended for all ages
    Really enjoyed this Escapre room run by Luke at Chelmsford. We played The Governor and it exceeded our expectations. Great fun and a few screams along the way too. Anyone looking for fun, something different, team, or family/friends events should try this. Works for all ages too as they have different rooms to select. I would recommend this experience and they now even offer an overnight stay option in one of their newer bases.
    Hi Robert, Thank you for playing and for taking the time to leave such a lovely review. It's greatly appreciated and it was a pleasure of mine to host your game! We hope to see you again soon for another one of our challenges!

    Great fun!
    We escaped with 31 seconds to spare! We had such good fun many laughs along the way! Thank you to our host Emily who set the scene perfectly and offered us the odd clue when we were struggling but ultimately for awarding us our certificates. We would high recommend!

    Fantastic experience
    We tried the governor as our first escape room for our daughter’s 13th Birthday and we had so much fun! Great if you like surprises that make you jump and laugh. Will definitely book again to try the other rooms. Staff explained everything really well to help us make the most of our experience.

    Can’t wait to come back!
    Had the best time doing the Crazy Cat Lady escape room as a group of 3! We had already done the Last Testament room earlier in the year and loved it so decided to come back and try another, and it was just as good. Emily was an amazing host, so lovely and made the game really fun for us. Can’t wait to try The Governor another time!
    Hi Becky, thank you for taking the time to leave such a lovely review! It was an absolute pleasure to run your game for you! I'm so glad you had a great experience and we hope to see you again soon to take on The Governor!

    Best escape room ever!
    Five of us attempted The Governor escape room today and, despite not quite managing to escape, we had the best time ever! The staff were all exceptional and looked like I were enjoying it just as much as us. The room was so much fun and had so many great, interesting (and scary!) elements. We attended for someone’s birthday and they made them feel really special. Highly recommended and we can’t wait to go back! Hopefully next time we’ll manage to escape….
    Hi, thank you for taking the time to leave such a lovely review! I have passed your great feedback onto the team for you! We all very much enjoy hosting escape rooms and enjoy making a fuss when it is a birthday, we love an excuse to celebrate! I'm so glad you had a great experience and we hope to see you again soon for another one of our challenges!

    Such a great experience, and so much fun for all the family!
    I did the crazy cat lady escape room with my husband and our 11-year-old daughter. it was so much fun. It took us about 25 minutes before we even managed to open the first padlock and was panicking that we wouldn’t even find one cat, let alone 6! Emily was our host and made us feel most welcome and explained everything really well. Will definitely be booking another escape room experience again and can highly recommend!

We did the last testament escape room and IT WAS AMAZING! We went as mum and 11 year old son and my son loved it! Although it was quite tricky, we managed to finish it. The theming was excellent. There was a cancellation to my boy’s previous gift, so we came here instead and the guy who runs it gave us an extra hint! Theming was nice, guy was very helpful and kind and it was a lot of fun here. I recommend you come here sometime, it is really worth it!

We went to Crazy Cat Lady on 3rd April it was brilliant.

This was a very interesting and exciting game.

Alex was very friendly and welcoming. He made the event very special giving some clues but encouraged us to continue with working out what information we had already found.
Alex helped make it a really good time.

We would recommend this for anyone of all ages we went as a family but you could still have fun as an adult or child
Hard enough to be a challenge but not too difficult so you can't complete it.

Crazy Cat lady room was really fun - just the right level for 2 adults and 2 kids (age 10&11). Great clues and we escaped with 13 minutes to spare. Emily was a fantastic host, very friendly and made our visit really enjoyable. Looking forward to coming again.

I celebrated my birthday with 7 of my friends at the The crazy cat lady escape room. I can say it was fantastic. As it was our first time trying to escape an escape room, we found it difficult to get started but our guide was extremely helpful , without him we couldn't manage. But I can say , we loved the decoration, the colour, the cats!!! Challenging, fun and team work!! Love it! I want my next Birthday at an escape room too!!

Thank you for celebrating your birthday with us and I am delighted we could make it one you'll never forget! Thank you also for taking the time to leave us such a lovely review! Our Games Master's always strive to go above and beyond and to make the whole experience from start to finish immersive and captivating! The Crazy Cat Lady is a great room to start off as your first Escape Room experience. I would highly recommend Sausage Surprise with Punch & Judy over at our Witham location, which follows some of the same characters as you discovered in The Crazy Cat Lady! We would be absolutely thrilled to see you all again soon for another one of our Escape Room challenges, especially for another one of your birthday's!
