As we gradually come out of lockdown, we’re looking for any and all excuses to hang out with friends, and who doesn’t love an immersive game to really test your friendships?

An all new escape room is coming to town this month, Cryptic Escape Rooms in Manchester is inviting you to get locked in! Bring your friends and solve mysteries, find hidden gems and escape from a demogorgon to emerge victorious before the time runs out.

They’ll be taking bookings from 25th May, this immersive experience is perfect for any upcoming birthdays if you’re after something unique! 

Cryptic Escape Rooms Manchester is a new location from the team behind the award winning Cryptic Escape Rooms Huddersfield which opened its doors in 2019 and has been a hit with visitors who love the immersive stories and cryptic puzzles. 

Owner Michael said: “I’m delighted to be opening another Cryptic Escape Rooms and give the people of Manchester the chance to experience our games – they’re going to love it!

Lloyd , the owner and game designer at the Manchester branch said “We can’t wait to open up on 25th May so people can see all the great stuff we’ve been working on and the surprises we have in store. 

We’ve been incredibly busy over the last few months getting everything ready and are really pleased with how it’s turned out – we’re sure you won’t have been to any other escape rooms quite like this one! It’s a weird time to be opening a new business but I know people are going to be looking for fun things to do with their friends and family and we have plenty of those on offer at Cryptic Escape Rooms!

 The team has made lots of plans to make sure the games are completely covid-secure, masks must be worn while inside and the room will be completely cleaned and sanitised after each game.

You can find Cryptic Escape Rooms in Ashton-under-Lyne, just a short walk from the tram stop. Bookings can be made online at – use code CRYPTIC20 if you book before 25th May for 20% off!
