Frequently Asked Questions:

The Heist is located at 32 St. Mary’s Place! It’s a couple of minutes away from Haymarket metro station and a 10 minute walk from Grey’s monument in the centre of town.

The Heist is an intermediate escape game with around 60% of groups making it out. If you’ve had experience playing rooms before then you should be able to make it out, however those who are new to escape games may be better playing our easier game, Save the City.

You will have 60 minutes to steal the diamond! We would leave about an hour and 10 minutes for the whole experience, so we have time to sort out a team photo and take you through any questions you may have at the end.

All you need to bring down is your team, some enthusiasm and your thinking caps (if you’ve got them).

The Heist is a good game for those looking to play as a family or or with kids! It has no adult themes and a variety of puzzles to keep different minds engaged. It is a difficult game so would perhaps recommend an easier room for younger players. We do ask that all under 16’s are accompanied by an adult to help keep them on track.

The Heist can hold between 2 and 6 people. As the game begins in a lift we are unable to squeeze any extra players in. If you’re looking to bring any more people down, you can book in for one of our other escape games at around the same time. If you’d like to chat to our team about booking in for multiple games then please give them a call on 0191 261 6330.

No! When you book in with us you book the whole game so there will just be your team in the game.
