WHAT ARE PEOPLE SAYING ABOUT THE ESCAPE KEY?
"The room itself was amazing and the puzzles were unique and the best I’ve ever experienced - and I’ve been to many escape rooms!!
Trip Advisor, January 2022
Welcome to The Escape Key Newcastle
Our premium action-packed escape rooms have innovative puzzles that will thrill everyone, from first time challengers to veteran escapees! You won't find a series of repetitive 'find the combination and open the box' style puzzles.
What sets us apart from other escape rooms are our close ties to Newcastle and the North East's rich heritage. We're situated right next to St Andrew's Church in Gallowgate, next to a real witch burial ground and a medieval plague pit!
