The Escape Key

The Escape Key is Newcastle’s premium escape room attraction. Offering a truly immersive experience, the intricately detailed and beautifully themed rooms will have you feeling like you’ve stepped into another world.

With the opening of Electric City, we now have four premium escape room experiences at our Gallowgate venue.  Overlooking the oldest church in Newcastle, our unique rooms are based on the city’s rich history. Plague draws on one of the worst plague outbreaks in English history and many of the victims were buried right below us in the church yard. Perhaps even more grisly is the story of the Newcastle witches who were hanged at Gallowgate and buried in the graveyard right below our Witch room. It’s not all gloom though, our latest creation Electric City celebrates the fact that Newcastle was the first city in the world to be lit by electric light – but can you save the invention from the angry mob set on its destruction?

Far from your average, budget experience, The Escape Key is consistently ranked number one on TripAdvisor and has even been listed in the world’s Top 100 escape rooms.
