Don't Get Locked In Relocate to Bedford

Event in Bedford Town Centre

Don’t Get Locked In are extremely excited to announce a relocation to Bedford town centre at the end of February 2020.

An already established family run business with some amazing Trip Advisor reviews, Don’t Get Locked In has been in business for nearly 2 years located in Wing, Leighton Buzzard.

It has taken 12 months from starting to look for premises to opening and the project hasn’t been without its challenges. “The move has taken a lot longer than anticipated, but we are very happy that we held out for the right premises as we will have capacity and space for 6 themed escape rooms and we’ve got lots of ideas and plans”, said Marcus Wright, Director.

The space in Allhallows, Bedford covers 2 floors and will be opening up with 2 brand new themed rooms, ‘Gin & Panic’ and ‘Extortion’ at the end of February. There will then be 2 more rooms ‘The Secret Hut’ and ‘The Rock’, currently at the Wing site, which will open up in Bedford around April 2020. The remaining rooms will open up mid 2020, including a 2hour escape room game.

Escape room games are becoming more and more popular with players seeking new and exciting games to play and challenging themselves to see if they can escape. They are a fantastic activity to do with friends or family and are perfect for team-building and corporate events.

For those reading this new to the idea of escape rooms, you are not actually ‘locked in’, it’s just a game and is covered in the safety briefing before the game is played. Teams of 2-6 take on a ‘real life’ escape game, working together in a cleverly themed room to uncover a series of clues and puzzles. They are very addictive and great fun!

Like ‘The Secret Hut’ and ‘The Rock’ their two already popular escape rooms which have been running for 2 years in Wing, Don’t Get Locked In’s new escape rooms have been designed and built by Marcus, making it a totally unique and authentic experience. The only question is, will you escape?

Cathy Wright who will be running the day to day operations said “People love escape rooms, but there aren’t any in Bedford town centre, so this is really exciting. We can’t wait to open up, not only creating jobs but giving people the opportunity to explore the escape room craze”.
