Have you got what it takes to escape from a mysterious cold war era safe house hidden beneath a Cambridge street? You’ve been double-crossed, and now you’re trapped in the one place you thought would provide sanctuary. Featuring secret hidden doors, a severed thumb and a fish-tank (but no live sharks!) – Secret Agent is our most challenging game of all.

Description

secret-agent

Good day to you agents. We have been impressed by your progress so far and feel that you would all make valuable contributions to our agency; however, we cannot allow you into our ranks until you have proved yourselves in ‘Secret Agent’: truly, our most difficult challenge.

In 1972, British Intelligence Officers discovered an illegal espionage hideout for a USSR sympathizer in Central London. The owner of this room was never found, believed to have escaped through a complex means of various mechanisms and obscure puzzles.

We have taken the documents concerning this room to devise our most fiendishly challenging training exercise. This room will test your mental capacity to its very limits, with false trails and red herrings allowing the even stranger true puzzles to hide in plain sight. Nothing is quite what it appears and it will take all of your powers of deduction to complete this task. We await your arrival and hope to be impressed. Secret Agent is our most challenging game of all.

If you’re a seasoned escape gamer, then this is the game we strongly recommend. If you’re new to escape gaming, then maybe Armageddon or Egyptian Tomb might be a game to start with.

    As always, a great puzzle and a fantastic experience! Harry, our game master, was very good every step of the way… and we almost broke the record! I’ve come three times now with different groups of friends and colleagues, and will definitely return!

    Another great game (2 down one to go). Only reason this didn’t get 5 stars as we solved a puzzle early on but it was faulty and didn’t release. We spent ages thinking we got the answers wrong and had to ask for a clue to be told we were right all along. Afterwards we were told that puzzle is a bit temperamental….? Maybe fix it? luckily we still got out however we had to rush and ask for clues as we didn’t have the time.

    What a fantastic experience! Some very tricky puzzles, little bit of thinking outside the box, but nothing impossible to work out (sometimes a little nudge in the right direction was required, but you’re never given an outright answer, just enough to get your mind pointed in the right direction).
    The staff are friendly and play their parts brilliantly, really helping to get you into the mood and set the scene for the scenario.
    All in all, excellently done and definitely cannot wait to have a crack at one of the other rooms.

    An excellent experience. My friends and I had much more fun than we expected, and were shouting with glee with every clue solved. Well done!

    I really enjoyed this escape the room. It was the first time doing and escape the room…it appears that we chose the hardest one!! Let’s say we didn’t escape, but would recommend it and am definitely going to try another one!

    Great puzzles, exciting set pieces. Last moment of escape maybe a slight anti-climax? Not sure how to make the revelation of “we’ve escaped” more cool.

    We came back completely happy. It’s a very exciting game! The host is also fantastic, really kind and very good at estimating how much the players wish to be helped. Don’t change a thing 🙂

    Pricewise I think it’s fair; for us a bit on the high side of what we can afford for an evening out, but since it’s so much fun I think I would try and come back.

  31. Secret Agent
    Took part in the secret agent escape room which was brilliant. Have done a couple of these in the USA but friends with us have never done this before and they loved it as much as we did. Venue is great with lots of games to mess around with before you try out the rooms. Staff are brilliant and very interactive with customers and really get you into the spirit of the game. Room was really hard but we managed to get out with 4 minutes to spare. Will be back soon with the kids to try out another room.

  32. Secret Agent Room was Great
    Had a great time with a group of 6 – we did the Secret Agent room which is apparently the hardest. It was a good challenge, and we had some experienced people in the group. I recommend this room for those who have done a few escape rooms before.

  33. Lots of Good Puzzles In the Secret Agent Room!
    We did the secret agent room with a group of five friends, and had a great time. This room is meant to be the hardest of the three, and as a group of adults we were able to clear it with plenty of time to spare, but the puzzles are well designed with lots of details and red herrings to throw you off, and they managed to stump us in a few places. The whole soviet safe-house KGB initiation gimmick is a lot of fun too. I’d definitely recommend it.

  34. So Much Fun! Book It Now.
    We took on the “spy room” as a couple, and had an absolutely fantastic time. I absolutely don’t want to give away any spoilers, but the puzzles were imaginative, brilliantly themed and full of high quality props and unexpected surprises. The guy running our event (I think he must be Paul that we’d exchanged emails with?) was super friendly and passionate about the room… and I suspect he generously gave us an extra minute or two to finish near the end as we were so close to solving the final challenge.

    In short: we’ll be returning to tackle the other two rooms with a group of friends, and will be recommending LockHouse to everyone we know.

  35. Secret Agent Was So Fun!
    The hosts welcomed us and they were straight forward with the instructions and super friendly and fun! We did Secret Agent and the rooms were clever and entertaining! Atmosphere was perfect and I would definitely recommend this!

  36. The Teenagers Loved It
    I sent my teen daughter and three of her friends on the Secret Agent mission for a birthday treat, not really knowing what to expect. They LOVED it. The puzzles were challenging but not ridiculously so – it definitely required all four brains to solve them as the girls seemed to have different knacks for different types of puzzle. Apparently the person giving the clues put on a fake Hungarian accent, which they found hilarious. They were quite pleased with themselves for having solved all the clues with only 24 seconds remaining. On the basis that my teen is discerning in her tastes (i.e. very difficult to please) I would say that she has given LockHouse high praise. I can’t wait to go myself!
