Escape The Van


You recently volunteered to take part in a groundbreaking medical experiment. The Doctors subjected you to a mysterious compound which claimed to radically improve your mental and physical abilities. Now, the lab technicians are inviting you to their mobile laboratory to test the effects...

On arrival at the testing facility, you are shown to a door labelled the Further Analysis Kinesthetic Experiment Lab and asked to conduct a series of tests.

Will you be able to solve all the puzzles in time to escape the van? Or will the serum turn out to be a failed experiment?


Escape The Van operates out of a large, blue, Vauxhall Luton box Movano van which has been converted into an immersive escape room experience.

Upon arrival, the Game Master will spend a short time preparing the room for you. You will then be briefed and taken through the health, safety and emergency procedures.

Once admitted to the game, you will be locked in. You will then have 60 minutes to work out how to escape, using props and clues to solve the puzzles to progress.

The Game Master will be able to hear and see you at all times from their position in the front cab via cameras positioned throughout the van. You can communicate with them through a themed point of contact. They will monitor your progress and provide hints and clues when requested, or when appropriate, for the benefit of the experience.

The clock stops when you complete the final challenge and open the door to escape. Not every group will be able to complete the challenge in time!

At the end of the session, the Game Master debriefs you on the experience and will ask for feedback. At this point there will also be opportunities for photos… and there may be some prizes!

About Preparation

Clothing – Suitable clothing should be worn to take part. Please dress appropriately for the weather conditions. We do have heating and air conditioning but it is best to be prepared! Stiletto heels are not permitted as they will damage the floor.

Toilet Break/Food/Drinks – As part of the experience you will be locked in the van for up to an hour. If requested, you will be able to leave at any time, but you will not be able to re-enter.

Ready On Time – We ask that you are ready 10 minutes before the booked time to allow for the Game Master to brief you and for the session to begin on time. If you are not ready, the Game Master will make a judgement on whether or not the session can run.

Sobriety – All participants are expected to be sober when taking part in the experience, in the interest of health and safety and enjoyment of the game. Please note that it is at the discretion of the Game Master as to whether or not it is safe to run the experience. Unless Escape The Van is at fault, no refund will be given in the event of the experience being cancelled.

About the Van

Model – Escape The Van operates out of a large, blue, Vauxhall Luton box Movano van which has been converted into an immersive escape room experience.

Gameplay – Although we are a mobile experience, this refers to the process of driving to your location. The van will remain stationary throughout the game.

Dimensions – The dimensions of the van are 2.1m wide, 6.7m long and 3m high.

Access – It is your responsibility when booking to ensure that the van will be able to access and stay in one fixed, safe location. We are able to operate from private property with the landowners’ permission, such as a driveway or company car park. We can also operate from the kerbside in areas without parking restrictions and with a speed limit of 30pmh or less.
