Who are we?
We are a team of hard core escape room enthusiasts, and with the experience of over 60 escape rooms “under our belt” (and still counting!), we are very happy, and most of all, very proud, to present to you The Old Lock Up escape rooms!
From the very moment we started playing escape rooms in the early 2016, we knew we wanted to create one of our own. From then on, we traveled, we played, we noted everything we loved, and everything we hated about escape rooms, and started drawing out plans for Kidnapped in October 2017.
Why “Kidnapped”? Because we think escape rooms should be all about the thrill, the adrenaline, and the rush to - ESCAPE! So many escape rooms offer JUST puzzles, but we wanted to add that “I need to escape this place!” factor to our escape rooms, and so “Kidnapped” was our “first born”.
In January 2018. we found the perfect space for our escape rooms, put the office clothes away at 4pm, put the work clothes on, and worked solid until late, every day, for 2 months. We had to learn new skills every day - from how to build dry walls, put tiles on, fit carpets and fit door frames on, to how to set up the technical side of things, so, everything you see, and everything you experience in our escape rooms comes from our own heads, and our own hands.
We have made sure that our escape rooms are full of adrenaline, as realistic as possible, and most important of all, worth every penny to our players!
We hope you have as much fun playing as we did creating!
The Old Lock Up team :)
