Difficulty rating: EASY

This room is designed for children aged 8 - 13 years old.

A supervising adult must be present in the room at all times.

The Mission

Mr Eveel, the most hated science teacher in the school, has given you and your friends detention for goofing off in class.

This is no ordinary detention though. As the whole school knows Mr Eveel likes to give students surprise tests. If you want to ever get out of detention then you need to demonstrate that you are pupils who are clever and hard-working, capable of solving his puzzles.

Find the clues that have been left for you around Mr Eveel’s science lab, to work out the puzzles and problems within an hour, or else you will have to spend the rest of your life, trapped inside the school.

Perfect For Parties

Looking for a unique kid's party idea? We've got you covered! Bring the curious little monsters along to Enigma to tackle 'Detention', the only escape room for kids. They'll tackle puzzles and problems purposely designed for their age group, all with the goal of breaking out of detention! What's more, add gift bags to your booking to give them that little extra incentive to escape!

Just For Kids

The first Escape Room entirely for kids! Here at Enigma, we saw how excited kids actually get about escape rooms, however, often become disheartened when the puzzles in adult rooms are too difficult for them. That's why we designed 'Detention', the only escape room in the North East that is exclusively designed for children aged 8-13 years.

An Interesting Challenge

Escape rooms are the perfect way to get the kids away from their screens and stimulate them mentally. Our puzzles are designed to challenge and encourage kids to use their attention skills, memory skills, problem-solving skills, and communication skills, whilst being fun, immersive and interactive.

Plague will be closed between September 27th and 2nd July to make way for our Holiday themed rooms. An alternative room suitable for children will be available during this period. Please contact us on: 01642 688 817 for more information.
