First 'Escape Room' coming to Spalding?




Plans have been submitted for what could be the very first 'Escape Room' for Spalding.

A planning application, put forward to South Holland District Council, could see the puzzle game phenomenon opening in Red Lion Street in Spalding.

Proposal papers, put forward by Brett Harman for Rush Hour Escape Rooms Ltd, which has its registered address in Spalding, explain that the escape room is a themed room full of puzzles and locks, with people given 60 minutes in which to escape.

There are various versions of escape rooms across the country and abroad run by different companies, in which players get a certain amount of time to crack clues and puzzles to 'escape' the room.

The proposal is for 3b Red Lion Street, (above the coffee shop of Flowers 'n' Things), with plans to turn the two office units, of approximately 50 sq metres each unit, into the escape room.

The application adds that the 'escape room' will be ideal for family and friends and corporate nights out.

The units to be converted are currently empty and unused, and were formerly used by the business Riverside Training which is now based in Westlode Street.
