visit Cornwall's new escape room when visiting our restaurant at Fowey

A new way of gaming has been sweeping the nation, and now two escape rooms have opened in Cornwall. For anyone who is a fan of The Crystal Maze or become addicted to The Room app on their tablets, then this will definitely be a fun way to spend a rainy afternoon!



Escape rooms are essentially a physical adventure game where players are locked into a room and have to use elements of the room to solve a number of puzzles, and then escape within a time limit. These games are physical versions of many video games with 'escape the room' concepts.

Locations are in a variety of fictional settings ranging from space stations to medieval dungeons, and can be great fun for couples, families, team building or even stag or hen dos!

The two escape rooms that have opened in Cornwall offer great experiences. Cornwall's Great Escape Room in Newlyn and Locked in Cornwall in Redruth allow you 60 minutes to escape the room. You don't need a genius brain to figure out your escape, as all the puzzles and clues to help you can be found within the room.

At Newlyn, the first room open takes you back to 1863, where you have to help an author escape, whose sanity and health are deteriorating. In October and December, two more rooms at the Great Escape Rooms will be revealed. The room is a fantastic way to spend a rainy day and leave behind the phones and gadgets.

At Locked In in Redruth, the concept is different, as you have to go from room to room for your escape. Each room has logic puzzles, games and many clues that will help you on your escape, and will surely test your puzzle solving limits!

The rooms have been designed for adults over 16, though children nine and older can participate with an adult over 18.

When on a summer break in our hotel and restaurant at Fowey, and the rain starts, these new gaming experiences will definitely be a fun way to spend a day. You can book an afternoon at the escape rooms online here for Newlyn and here for Redruth.
