Puzzle Room games in East Anglia

Portfolio > Save Christmas from Scrooge

Yes, it is hard to believe but not everyone likes Christmas. The season of peace and goodwill is rejected by the society of puritanical miseries who call themselves SCROOGE, taking their inspiration from possibly the most famous of Charles Dickens' characters.

Not just wallowing in their killjoy anguish, they also want to deny the rest of us our Yuletide fun. They have set up a network of radio jamming devices across the land to interfere with the radio signals Santa and his band of helpers use to plan the Big Man's route on Christmas Eve. One such jamming device is in Thetford Forest!

Assemble a team to try and locate the jamming device and de-activate it, thereby helping Santa bring joy to millions as he has done for time immemorial.

An agent from the covert East Anglian Intelligence Agency, hired to track down SCROOGE, will meet your team at High Lodge where you will be provided with your agents' pack and given a short briefing. You then have exactly 60 minutes to locate and deactivate the jamming device following a series of clues, solving puzzles and working together as a team. Our agents will be in contact throughout the adventure.

Map reading skills are useful! The route is just over 1.1 miles (1.6km) and can be completed in under the 60mins at a moderate walking pace.

Suitable for all ages but under 14s need to be accompanied by at least one adult. We cannot predict the weather so please check the forecast and come prepared. In the event of a severe weather occurence such as a thunderstorm, heavy snow, gales the Forest road will be closed and we will refund or rearrange to suit. Thetford Forest is a working forest and the surfaces underfoot may be mixed; surfaced footpaths as well as grass and wild woodlands. Please wear sensible and appropriate footwear and clothing for the exercise. All other equipment will be provided. Also note that there is no mobile phone coverage in most of the Forest.

Forestry Enterprise car parking charges apply. Please see the High Lodge website for up to date details.

Customer endorsement

"I wanted to do an escape room as part of a 'brain & brawn' themed stag weekend. Cambridge escape rooms was fully booked so I got on google and found Steve. He was extremely diligent, even going so far as to contact the venue and arrange a recce the week before and send me a detailed report. On the day Steve was excellent. he picked up the mood very quickly and set a challenge which was hard, but vaguely achievable. I was very nervous that a stag party would not appreciate this at all but we were all totally immersed in the scenario and the hour flew by. Everyone was very complimentary and genuinely enjoyed it. It was an excellent compliment to a day's paint balling! Thanks for an excellent afternoon Steve!"
