Escape Your Afternoon In The Cryptology Rooms

Escape Your Afternoon In The Cryptology Rooms

Looking for a thrilling adventure to mix up your afternoon? We took a trip to Nottingham's Cryptology escape room to try out their new 'Dreamscape' room.

On one of Nottingham's busy streets in the city centre the Cryptology Rooms opened its rooms in 2015 and has been creating wonderous adventures for locals and visitors ever since. Offering a handful of themed rooms for you to try and escape, they all are very different from each other. You can try, 'Rameseize' which is based upon Ancient Egypt, or 'Cypherdyne' which is a disarming interview or 'Dreamscape' which is the escape room we took on.

The escape is centred around the character of Dr Lucy Dee who is conquering the art of lucid dreaming. Unfortunately for the Dr, she has gotten lost in her own dreamscape and it was our job to help unravel the dreams so she could escape from her own void.

The aim of the 60 minutes we were inside the escape room was to find and unlock 'Dream Keys'. Without falling into the same void Dr Lucy was in, we had to tune into her brainwaves and wander through the random and uncontrollable dreams that would lead us to her final dream. Upon attempting this escape, we realised that there were many clues to be found in order to unlock the next room in time, however not all were needed to complete the end game. Each of the rooms were filled with cryptic clues, mathematical puzzles and even physical games in order to find the keys to unlock each room. 

We are pleased to say that The Idle Man team managed to make our way out but only narrowly. The rooms proved to be more complicated than what we were anticipating, but without giving away too many spoilers playing this escape room is by far the most bizarre than any other. 

You can have your go at 'Dreamscape' or any of the other escape rooms on offer at the Cyrptology Rooms in Nottingham by visiting and booking on their website.
