• Trapped in a Prison Van


    You're normally so careful. Or, maybe you've just been lucky up until now. You never thought you'd get caught. And yet, here you are, on your way to Pentonville. Well, you can't have that, can you? Prison orange really doesn't suit you...


    First step: Stop the van.

    Second step: Escape.

    Third step: Retire to the Bahamas.


    Simple enough, isn't it? Well, let's just hope that luck sees you out.



    You and your gang have been arrested and found guilty. A life sentence at HM Prison Pentonville awaits you all. Can you stop the van and escape within 60 minutes or will you be trapped forever behind bars?

    Trapped in a Prison Van is the new immersive escape game from Trapped. Trapped is known for its immersive elements and hard game play. Test your skills in an authentic prison van, refurbished to create the ultimate prison break experiences.




  • FAQs


    What should I wear?

    For this experience, you will be given an orange jumpsuit as well as chain restraints. For this reason, we recommend wearing comfortable, loose clothing. We advise against high heels.

    Will I really go to prison?

    While we can’t promise you’ll never go to prison, we personally will not actually arrest or detain you.

    Is this a room?

    Trapped in a Prison Van takes place in a real refurbished prison van. We purchased the 10 cell van from Kent Police in late 2016 and turned it into an immersive escape room. The prison van does not actually move during your experience for safety reasons.

    How many people are in this experience?

    The experience is designed to take up to eight people. The game requires a minimum of four players. Please note that unless you book all eight spaces, you will be playing with strangers. If there are less than four of you, this means you can book onto an existing session without having to meet the minimum numbers of players.

    For private sessions, we can stretch to 9 players but with the knowledge it will be a tight fit inside the prison van.


    How long is it?

    This depends on how smart you are! If you do not find all the clues and solve the puzzles that unlock the door within 60 minutes, you will fail the room. Allow one and half hours for the entire performance for instruction time and a solution explanation.


    Can I participate if I am pregnant?

    Due to the limited space in the prison van, we do not recommend this experience for heavily pregnant women.


    Those who do participate do so at their own risk.


    Are mobile phones permitted?

    Mobile phones are not allowed to be used in the room. The use of electronic devices or any outside tools are strictly prohibited and you will immediately be removed from the show if you attempt to use them.


    What happens if I arrive late?

    The door to the room closes exactly at the time you signed up for. Please arrive 15 – 20 minutes early to make sure you are there before the room is locked. You will not be permitted into the room if you are late. THERE ARE NO REFUNDS.


    What's your cancellation policy?

    We regret that tickets cannot be exchanged or refunded after purchase.

    What is the minimum age?


    You must be 14 years or older to participate. If you are under the age of 18, a parent or guardian must sign this liability waiver before your arrival. You must show evidence this has been signed either on a digital device or by print out.


    The game may be customised for groups younger than 14 but these must be a private session and we must be informed ahead of time to organise age appropriate clues.
