We are throwing you in jail. You have committed a heinous crime and your punishment is life without parole. You will be imprisoned at Standfast Jail, Tunbridge Wells.
30 years ago, ex-prisoner Joseph Wendle attempted to escape Standfast Jail. Over the five years he was held there, he created an elaborate escape plan which, on July 23rd 1989, he executed right up until the final stage when he was caught red handed attempting to steal the Warden’s keys. Unfortunately, prisoner Wendle was transferred to a high security unit in Dover, but fortunately for you he has left a trail of intricate clues and codes to help lead you to freedom.

Back in 2016, before there were any permanent escape room venues in Margate, Clue Cracker ran a six week pop up game there named Jailbreak. Three years on, the same company are back with a revamped version of that game, now at a permanent location in Tunbridge Wells, attached to a pub.

We don’t normally detour to venues with just one room, but as we’d heard good things about Jail Break at Clue Cracker we decided to make an exception and swing by Tunbridge Wells - it was worth it.
This is a room not to be missed. With the combination of superb attention to detail, a massive array of puzzles, the intensity of the game play and the passion from the team, the team at Clue Cracker have hit the jackpot with this game!

Impressive work from a company opening their first permanent room. Worth a trip if you are in the area (and if you are not in the area as well to be honest)
