Enigma Quests create experiences for those seeking adventure in everyday life.

In every quest a team of 3-5 is given a mission that they must complete in 60 minutes, step by step, clue by clue, using their logic imagination and common sense.

Along the journey teams will have to solve mysteries and encounter obstacles.

Team members will get to enjoy the thrill of the challenge, time pressure and the great teamwork they’ll experience with their group of friends, family, or colleagues.     

What Kind of Escape Room Floats Your Boat (or Submarine)?

Graduate from the School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and prove to everyone that you are a true witch or wizard! Or carry out a Million Pound Heist – perfect for devious and sharp minds!
