  2. Enter the game
  3. Get trapped inside
  4. Solve the puzzles and riddles to escape…

You should be aware that we do NOT allow mobile phones in our escape rooms. You should be provided with a locker or other safe place to keep your belongings whilst you are inside. If the escape room does not offer this you may be able to keep your phone on you provided it is switched off.

Your phone probably would not really help you anyway as escape rooms are all unique and the answers will likely not appear in a sneaky Google search.

You should be mindful though if you do have any health conditions that could be affected. Some of the escape rooms at Escape Now include tiny, dark paces and UV light. Unfortunately for these reasons, we do recommend that people with epilepsy, claustrophobia, physical disabilities and heart conditions NOT play our games.

  1. Sherlock´s Secret

(Challenge Level: Difficult)

In a city that breathes uncertainty, a gloom lures over 221B Baker St, as Sherlock Holmes has been abducted by the very killer he was chasing. What possibly could have happened?

To find Mr Holmes, we are recruiting only the best detectives in the city to solve the mystery and find Mr Holmes before it is too late. The odds are against you, so can you find Mr Holmes in time?

A serial murderer is on the loose, and Holmes and Watson have been on the case. In typical fashion, however, Holmes was struck with a breakthrough deduction and ran off. Thinking Holmes had simply solved the case and gone back home, Watson followed shortly behind. But when he arrived at 221B, there was no trace of Holmes – only a note left on the desk, written in the same strange code the killer has been leaving at the scenes of the crimes.

Unable to figure out the case himself, Watson recruits a top team of forensic investigators to assemble at 221B Baker St, to solve the case before time runs out and save Sherlock from the sadistic killer.
