Would you like to play a game?
Mr Chuckles has got one that he's made especially for you! It's no ordinary game, Mr Chuckles doesn't like ordinary games, his are designed to trick, test, challenge and divide you.
Once you enter his creepy funhouse you must work as a team to outsmart Mr Chuckles’ tricky puzzles. However teamwork will only take you so far in the game before it’s every player for themselves!
You each need one ticket to escape, so if you find one hold on to it tight or get out quick stopping the clock and sabotaging your team mates chances of finding their own ticket, the choice is yours.
Will you help the other players find their tickets as the last remaining minutes count down? The time ends as soon as the first golden ticket holder exits the game, so you need to decide what’s more important - A fast time or for every member of your team to win the game?
For teams unlucky enough to still be inside without a ticket or too slow to get out as the final seconds tick by, Mr Chuckles has one last surprise up his sleeve. He needs to clear the funhouse ready for his next players and the fastest way to do it is to flush the place out with an acid shower.
Death comes quickly to those that are left behind!
Please note: This is NOT a scary game. There are NO scares & NO live actors.

My team Team Raging Clue and I went to Escape Quest Macclesfield in March 2018 after being advised a visit by the owners of Wirral Escape Rooms. We felt so very welcome in the Escape Quest building as they only run one game at a time, it partly feels like you are going to visit a friend as we discussed quite a while on tips and anecdotes on the games with the two lovely owners. We started with Chuckle's Fun House, which we have been told before coming that lasted 90 minutes and with a live actor but it seems that it was changed a bit to a more traditional room. The room is not scary or gorry per say but definitely has a creepy element to it. The atmosphere was really good, low lights, good funfair furnitures, good soundtrack with Mister Chunkle laughing at us or making comments on our progression. The mechanism of the game was to find golden tickets before ringing the bell to escape the Fun Fair and one of you had the possibility to ring the bell before - if they have one golden ticket, leaving the others to be locked in the Fun Fair forever until Chuckle launches an acid shower on them. Unfortunately, without giving it away, I think it could have been more fun to have more than one isolated ticket or at least that the isolated ticket was hidden in a different place, as it wasn't giving much chance (or reason) to the finder to use it discretely.

Reviews by escape room review sites

Mr. Chuckles' Funhouse is an updated version of the earlier Escape Quest game Bad Clown, which was a 90 minute game with a live actor and a propensity to terrify. The current game is toned down to be less scary and of a normal length.

The game opens with an audio briefing in the darkened room, where Mr. Chuckles does his best furniture-chewing gleefully-mad villain routine and sets out the terms of his game: by solving his puzzles, each player can find a golden ticket that'll give them safe pas...

Mr Chuckles Funhouse is a game with storied and perhaps even notorious history. The game was original known as Bad Clown, and was a horror experience as much as an escape game, featuring a real life actor playing the titular Bad Clown. That version of the game closed down after it became apparent that people were so freaked out by it that more than half the teams quit during the intro!
It’s a strange and creepy room filled with lots of fun puzzles and really immersive theming.
