Trip Advisor Reviews
The Puzzlescape escape experience (specifically, in the case of my friends and I, the 'Diamond Thief' escape room) was a superb challenge that threw us into a teamwork-style social scenario previously unknown to us. We just about made it out, skipping many heartbeats in the...More
Been here twice now- once as a couple and once with 3 friends. Great room set-ups and some interesting puzzling. Very friendly welcome and lots of laughs trying to get out! We will be back to check out the other rooms in the new year
I was taken along by my daughter and son in law as a surprise birthday present. We had great fun doing the Diamond Hunt. This really stretched our powers of deduction and lateral thinking. Ingeniously contrived. We highly recommend the experience. We will return!
Brilliant fun at Puzzlescape. The staff are really friendly and our group really enjoyed it. Thoroughly recommend - we will return!
I had done an escape room previously in France and the Diamond Hunt at Puzzlescape was just as good. We were two couples (I was the only one with any previous experience) and the difficulty level was just right so that with a few well...More
Taken along as a surprise birthday present from my daughter and son-in-law. What an exhilarating way to spend an hour ( or in our case just under the hour). Four of us plus a 10 month old grandson who could have been described as a...More
Tried Puzzlescape (Diamond Hunt) today, really good family fun, it was our first time in an escape room and our young children (8 and 5) and us thoroughly enjoyed it, I would highly recommend it to all.
We have never tried escape rooms and my 11yr finally got my attention from welcoming after work with a locked door to our house. It took me over 30 mins to work out the clues to get a cup of tea. This was our first...More
I went as a group of seven friends and we tried the diamond hunt. It was our first ever escape room but the gamesmaster Gill was really helpful and we had a great time. It was quite challenging but about the right difficulty so that...More
My 11-year-old son asked to go to Puzzlescape with friends for his birthday, after coming here in the summer. This was my first time and we all had a fantastic time. Gill was super friendly, fun and approachable, she helped us with hints if we...More

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Some of the most popular questions we are asked.
What is an escape room?
Essentially it is a live game. You and your team will enter a themed room. As the door shuts behind you, the clock will start. You have sixty minutes to work together to find all the clues, solve the puzzles and crack codes, in order to progress through the game and escape the room. Do you have what it takes?
Who is an escape room for?
Visitors, families, corporate groups, friends, celebrations, hen and stag parties, birthdays, anyone who wants to have fun.
Accessibility and special requirements?
Our building has three steps up to the entrance door, with handrails both sides. We have portable ramps for wheelchair users to gain access to the building. Once inside the building, it is all on one level and there is ample space for wheelchair users in our rooms. Our toilet facilities can also cater for a wheelchair, as there is sufficient space. We do ask that if there is a wheelchair user in your group, you tell us in advance, so we can be ready to assist when you arrive.
I suffer from claustrophobia. Is this for me?
Absolutely. We have had team members in our rooms that have told us they are claustrophobic. Once in the room they have become so focussed on the game, that it is not an issue for them. Our rooms have plenty of space to move around in. Our doors are only locked for the purpose of the game. Your games master will be watching and listening to your team, for the duration of the game, so if you wish to come out at any time, just ask and the door will be opened for you. All our rooms are equipped with an emergency door release.
What ages can play?
We like to think our rooms are suitable for almost everyone and we are happy to work around your needs to ensure you have a great experience. The youngest member of a team, who has contributed to a game, has been 8 years old and the oldest has been 84. Children under the age of 8, as part of family groups, love searching and helping adults find clues. We do advise that children under the age of 14 are accompanied by an adult, as our rooms will be difficult to do on their own.
How many team members can play in a room?
Our rooms can have between 2-7 players. Some teams prefer to come as part of large groups and others prefer to come as couples. The choice is yours.
Do i need special clothing?
No special clothing is required for our rooms. If you wear glasses for reading we advise that you bring them along with you.
Can you cater for larger groups?
Absolutely. We can run all three of our rooms at the same time, up to 21 people. This is great for team building, family groups, stag and hen dos and celebrations. To organise this, please call us on 07564 499494.
What are your opening hours?
We are open seven days a week. Our first booking is at 10am, and our last is at 8:30pm.
last minute bookings
We do have late availability from time to time. Please call us on 07564 499494.
Is there anything scary in the room?
No, there is nothing scary in our rooms and nothing will jump out at you. We personally do not enjoy scary things, so we would not put you through that either. Rest assured, you will be able to go into our rooms and focus on the task in hand; an escape!
Is there parking?
We do not have our own car park. There is a large free car park behind the Cherry Tree pub, which is near the war memorial. There are no time restrictions there. In Church Street, there are a few spaces that can be used for disabled badge holders. On Sundays there is free parking, without time restrictions, in the centre of Dereham.
What would I expect from my escape room experience?
When you arrive, 10-15 minutes before your allotted booking time, you will be met by your friendly games master. You will sit down for a short briefing, where you will be informed of a few housekeeping rules and maybe even a few helpful tips. You and your team will enter your chosen room, the door shuts and you are off. Your games master will be watching and listening to you in the room at all times, in order to help you through the game with some handy clues if you get a bit stuck. Hopefully you will find all the clues to help you escape, before the time runs out, and you will come out yelling and cheering. If you do not quite manage to escape, we will come and let you out when the hour is up.
