A fast-growing craze that sees members of the public locked in a room and asked to solve puzzles to escape is set to storm Ely.

A pop up Escape Room, which is an immersive interactive experience, and which has been referred to as a real-life Crystal Maze, is being launched in Oliver Cromwell’s House.

Groups of between four to eight people will be arrested and imprisoned by Cromwell’s men and given an hour to find the clues, solve the riddles and crack the code to locate a golden key.
