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?
The experience is designed for 2-8 players. Please note that if you have less than 4 players you may be joined with another small group. If you have over 4 players, your session is private for your group.
For private sessions, we can stretch to 9 players but with the knowledge it will be a tight fit inside the prison van.
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.
What is the minimum age?
As standard, players must be 14 years of age to participate.
The game may be customised for younger players, if the session is private (4+ players). Please advise us of ages of all players when booking using the special requirements box if you are looking to book for mixed ages, such as a family group.
Participants under 18 years of age must have a parent or guardian with them throughout.
Please contact us prior to booking if you are looking to book a session where all players are under the age of 14.
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 game for instruction time and a solution explanation.
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 operate a strictly NO HEELS policy due to the nature of the games. You will not be allowed entry should you not be wearing appropriate footwear.
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.
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 game if you attempt to use them.
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.
What's your cancellation policy?
We regret that tickets cannot be exchanged or refunded after purchase.
What happens if I arrive late?
The door to the room closes exactly at the time you signed up for. Please arrive 30 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.
Bookings of less than 2 participants will be pending until the minimum required 2 spaces are sold for that session. In this instance we will contact you directly to advise availability.
Please arrive 30 minutes before your selected performance to sign release forms and mentally be prepare for your escape attempt. Once the door to the room is locked, it will not be reopened until the session is finished. There will be no refunds or transfers allowed if members of the group leave the room during the experience.
You will not be permitted into the experience if you appear intoxicated or it is noticeable that you have been drinking alcohol.
Cell phones & tools are strictly prohibited during the event. If you use a cell phone, tool or any outside device during the event you will be escorted from the room immediately.
Please do not touch the actors. The zombie will only touch you if they get close enough to tag you out of the game. If the zombie does tag you, you must stand in the corner of the room and will be no longer allowed to search for clues, but you can participate verbally.
Do not force or break items. Locks and drawers will open if you have the correct combination. If something is not opening, do not break it to get it open.
Participants under the age of 18 will need to bring a liability release waiver signed by their parent or legal guardian. It is located in the questions of our home page.
Children under 14 will need to accompanied by a paying adult.
The experience is not suitable for children under the age of 8 and pregnant women are advised not to attend.
We operate a strict NO HEELS policy due to the nature of the games. You will not be allowed entry should you not be wearing appropriate footwear.
