Overview
More
Clue HQ Birmingham is a Escape Game/Entertainment Centre. We have great live escape games to breakout from. Each room has their own story which is explained to you on entry. After being locked in the room we put 60 minutes on the clock. You try to escape the room solving a set of puzzles, clues, finding keys as a team of up to 6 players. Will you get out in time?

Having done several other escape rooms in the past, I had high expectations for Clue HQ. Luckily, they were more than met! The room we did was challenging enough that the adults had great fun. The hosts were fun and helpful!

Bought for my 66th Birthday, the whole family took part and had a great time. We only just completed the puzzles over was over far to quickly.

Hi Rena, £44 is for 2 people, £63 for 3 people. We advise that the experience is best for those over 10, and those between 10 and 15 need a playing adult with them over the age of 18.
