The all new 4th season of Jailbreak returns to St Neots Museum this autumn…
It’s July 1940 and the Battle of Britain is being fought in the skies above eastern England – BUT you’ve been charged with breaking blackout and allowing light to shine from your window! You’re in serious trouble and will have to spend a night in police cells, unless, that is, you can break out of jail in 60 minutes or less…
In partnership with Mystery in History, St Neots Museum is proud to present Season 4 of ‘Jailbreak’ our popular Escape Room. Brand new challenges await you in our Edwardian police cells.
You will have 60 minutes to solve 3 challenges: escaping from the police cells; from the cell corridor; and finally, from the museum itself. A game for teams of 5-8 players costs £90; for a team of 2-4 players the cost is £70.
We will operate this attraction in a COVID secure manner. All Jailbreak staff will be fully vaccinated and masked, and we would ask that – for the time being – all team members also wear masks when arriving and whilst in shared areas. All current COVID measures as stipulated by the Museum will be followed, and extra time has been scheduled between sessions to enable santisation of clues, keys, handles and surfaces to take place between groups, so you can play your favourite Escape Room safely.
Cut-off time for online bookings is 4:30pm. Please call 07870 317312 for late availability and cancellations
The event will run over select dates from 12th September – 27th November 2021, with sessions running at the following times:
If you’ve not tried one of these before — an escape room is a physical adventure game where players are locked in a room and must solve a series of puzzles and riddles using clues, hints and strategy to complete the objectives, all this within 60 minutes. It’s a bit like The Crystal Maze or Fort Boyard but don’t worry its just for fun so you will be let out after the experience is complete. The challenge is to get out, and compete with other participants for the best time. Good luck.
Is Jailbreak suitable for people in wheelchairs?
Yes, doors will be narrow, but the whole experience is conducted on the same floor level. Please note that space inside the cells is tight.
What is the largest group size?
Is that really a genuine police cell, and are we really locked in?
Totally. You will have 60 minutes to solve 3 challenges: escaping from the police cells; from the cell corridor; and finally, from the museum itself.
What is the minimum age that can play?
We would recommend that the attraction is unsuitable for anyone aged under 11. Children under the the age of 18 taking part in the Escape Room must be accompanied by an adult.
Though government guidance on the compulsory wearing of facemasks has changed, competitors are still asked to wear a face mask whilst playing the game; no proof of vaccination is required to play, but if any people in your party are feeling unwell then please do not attend, you will be entitled to a full refund as long as we are notified at least 3 hours before your session is due to commence. If it proves necessary to cancel any sessions due to advice or government restrictions, a full refund will also be given to any ticket holders who are inconvenienced.
All current COVID measures as stipulated by the Museum will be followed, as will all guidelines stipulated or recommended by the government. Extra time has been scheduled between sessions to enable santisation of clues, keys, handles and surfaces to take place between groups, so you can play your favourite Escape Room safely.
What if I get claustrophobic?
No need to worry, someone will be at hand to help you throughout the experience. Early escapes are assisted when medically required.
Are there prizes?
Successful teams will have the option to have their photo taken with a board recording their escape time. The team who escapes in the fastest time throughout the season will get a special prize, and our Facebook will keep an updated list of ‘top times’.
I loved the museum but didn’t get chance to look properly at the displays.
Then do come back again during normal opening hours which are 11am – 4pm Tuesday – Saturday. Admission is free for local residents and £3 for non-residents.
I really enjoyed it, can I come back again?
Of course, just note that the attraction will remain unaltered for the season, so you will find it repetitive if you come back for the same challenge. We hope we can offer a new season again next year, where we will have totally new clues and forms of escape.
