The Birmingham Boys were a real gang who were active in Birmingham at the beginning of the 1900’s. They were involved in protection rackets, illegal gambling and all manner of sordid activities…
On the 7th August 1910 two senior members of the Birmingham Boys were arrested for murder in Northfield and were taken to Selly Oak Police Station awaiting transportation to Winson Green Prison.
Early on the morning of the next day, several other gang members entered the police station and shot one of the officers dead, the other officers escaped leaving the station in the sole control of the gang however, their colleagues were still locked up in the holding cell and nobody knew where the emergency key was kept.
It’s now your turn to relive the true story of what happened next…..
You have one hour.
What’s an Escape Room?
An Escape Room is a room or set of rooms where there is no obvious means of escape. You must work together with your friends, colleagues or family to solve puzzles and complete tasks in order to escape before the time is up.
You may be looking for numbers, solving puzzles and riddles or finding hidden objects. You’ll need to think on your feet and work fast to beat the room.
You have 1 hour in the room to escape.
Players need to be at least 10 years of age. Anybody under 16 will need adult supervision.
The room holds between 3 and 10 players with 4 or 6 being the most playable group size.
WHAT’S THE PRICE?
3- 8 Players per game
£15 per player
Do i need to book in advance?
If you do decide to just walk in we cannot guarantee the rooms availability. Pre-booking is required to secure an escape with a 50% deposit paid up front and the final balance paid on the day.
When can we come and how long does it last?
We hold games 7 days a week with the first sitting at 9.30am. We allocate 90 minutes for each booking which is enough time for your briefing with the game host, the hour experience (If you take that long to escape) and a de-brief to explain how close you were if you didn’t manage to escape.
What is the ideal age?
We advertise the game as ideal for ages 10+ but the room is suitable for all ages. Any players under 16 years must be accompanied by an adult in the room. There are no upper age limits.
What if i need to get out?
Don’t panic. Whether you need the toilet or you’re claustrophobic there is always a way out. You can contact your game coordinator through the intercom system and there are also break glass keys to use in emergency situations.
