Pay on arrival, or pay online£
The year is 1842. Your friend and colleague Isambard Kingdom Brunel has sent for you by telegram. When you arrive at his office, he is missing and all is not as it seems. Fearing for his life, and with a limited time, you must work through the clues he has left, to find out what has happened and hopefully regain contact with your friend. Expect an early Victorian, Bristolian twist in this intriguing puzzle escape room.
WHAT MAKES RIDDLR DIFFERENT?
We are an independent Bristol company who hand build all our puzzles and props, and never buy games "of the shelf" we are proud of our rooms and have a passion for creating wonderful immersive escape rooms that leave you feeling like you have truly left your ordinary world.
HOW DO I PLAY?
The basic theory of an escape room is that it should be fun for everyone, no matter your ability. The most important things are team work, curiosity and common sense. The puzzles are built around ‘search and discover’ and by matching items, clues or themes together you should be able to solve all of the puzzles. You will not need to do advanced science or mathematics and you will never need to use force or strength to break or modify anything. Song long as you are curious and prepared to explore, you and your team will do well, and have fun!
HOW MUCH IS IT?
Prices start from £17 per person per event but look out for promotional codes and special offers and student discounts throughout the year. We can negotiate special pricing for private parties, corporate bookings, hen and stag parties and full venue bookings. Please contact us for further details.
WHERE CAN I PARK?
There is free parking for two hours just 60 seconds walk from our venue at Cecil Road carpark. You can also find parking at Chase Shopping Centre, Kingswood park and the Park event centre, all just minutes walk from us. There is also a small selection of on street parking on some of the neighbouring roads.
WHEN SHOULD I ARRIVE?
There is a ten minute safety and experience briefing before your escape experience so all participants should be ready and on site at least ten minutes before the start of your game time.
IS IT SUITABLE FOR CHILDREN?
Whilst we do not have overly explicit or elicit materials within the rooms, there are some adult themes in some of our narratives and we have sculpted the puzzles to an adult difficulty level, therefore we ask that all players are at least 11 years old and that those under the age of 16 are accompanied by at least one full paying adult in each room.
IS IT SUITABLE FOR THE DISABLED OR PEOPLE WITH MOBILITY ISSUES?
Sadly our Bristol venue is not wheelchair accessible however we will try our hardest to accommodate all people. Some of our games are more physical than others and the best bet is to discuss your concerns with us. We will be able to recommend the best game for you and if possible accommodate your needs.
HOW DIFFICULT IS IT?
It should be possible for all players but there is a way to get clues if you are stuck.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
Our rooms are all indoors but we would recommend sensible clothes and footwear for mild physical activity. Be prepared as you may need to crawl under something or reach into a dark hole to find the next clue.

Three of us visited this Brunel-themed escape room, choosing the most difficult room they had. They gave us a good idea of what to expect and the level of difficulty. We were pleased to escape from the room in 44 minutes out of 60, only needing one clue in the process.
Very friendly staff who explained everything, and clearly have a passion for what they do.
