I was ever so lucky to spend an evening at Lockhouse Escape Rooms, it’s located in central Cambridge on regents street, about a 5 minuite walk from the grand arcade.

I was invited to go with 4 of my friends to see if we could complete one of their rooms and escape before the time runs out.

They have 3 different escape rooms at Lockhouse:

Egyptian Tomb

This one is their easiest room with a difficulty rating of 3/5, it would be perfect for beginners who haven’t done many rooms before.

The plot of the room is that archeologists have discovered an ancient burial chamber guarded by the god of the dead. It then becomes apparent that one of the archeologists has gone missing and it’s your task to find out what’s happened to him!


This one offers more of a challenge than the ‘Egyptian Tomb’ with a difficulty rating for 4/5.

The plot of Armageddon is that there is an asteroid heading for earth and all of the scientists are missing. You’re now tasked with fixing the rocket and launching it before the time runs out to save the human race.

Secret Agent 

This is Lockhouse’s hardest room with a difficulty rating of 4.5/5, so if you’re up for a challenge this one is for you!

In the Secret Agent room, you will discover there is an evil villain that’s trying to destroy the world. A secret agent is sent into his lair but he’s gone missing! Your job is now to complete the secret agent’s mission to prevent the villain from getting away with his evil plan.

The room we chose to take a shot at was ‘Secret Agent’, we thought that with 5 of us going in we would stand a decent chance.

The first 10 minutes went by and we had yet to find the answer to one of the puzzles, we knew we were off to a slow start when the game host asked us if it was a bit dark in there? (Hinting that maybe we should turn on the light!)

As time went on we got into the swing of things, we were running from one part of the room to another with the new clues we had found. It was a cleverly designed room with many little puzzles that kept us guessing and on our toes up until the last seconds. We finally managed to escape with 1 minuite and 46 seconds to spare, talk about a close shave!

The whole decor of Lockhouse Escape Rooms clearly had a lot of work put into it, even down to the entrance lobby. This area was set up as a games hub where you could play different Rubix cube games, puzzles and Phuket (this was my favourite) whilst you wait to start your game room.

If you’re interested in visiting Lockhouse Games you can use the code ‘BRYONY10’ to get 10% off your booking, it’s valid up until March 5th.

    That’s amazing you guys got out JUST in time! I’ve always wanted to try an escape room but I’ve never got round to it. I know a few of my friends would love something like that though, so I’ll have to organise a day where we can all meet up and try one out in Edinburgh ☺️ great post, I hope you all had fun!
