Your team are students at a prestigious university under the tutelage of the eccentric history professor, Dr. John Little.
Last he told you, he was close to finding the true location of Robin Hoods grave.
He believed Robin was buried here, under the old car park.
Unfortunately a building company recently purchased the land and they want to fill it in with concrete, unknowingly destroying one of the greatest finds in British history.
The professor was found trespassing on the site, looking for evidence of the grave and has been arrested. The task has been left to you.
The work is set to be started after the builders return from lunch in one hour.
Go down into the site, find Robins grave, bring evidence back up to the surface and stop them destroying history!

I think that this is my favourite Escapologic game, it is only missing out on the full 5*s because the game should be begging for more puzzles! That is the only fault, but I can imagine for first timers, this game would be incredible!

A fantastic room that keeps you on your toes, from some delightful puzzles to some to remind you of your favourite movies.  Dark in places and could be claustrophobic with a large group but this is a great room that keeps you guessing until the end.

Really great game!  Great reveals, great mechanics, and we saw some things that we have never seen in any other games before.

This is good fun - we found it pretty easy (reflected in the completion time) but thought the physical aspects of the game were very entertaining and enjoyed the local theme. Set looks fantastic. One of my favourite Escapologic Nott games.

I narrowly missed out on the chance to play Lockskey the first time round, when it briefly opened and then closed again due to problems with the underground location (since when it's been completely revamped, so I believe is safe to play even if you did the original version).
Robin Hood is an obvious theme for a venue based in Nottingham, and I'd have expected something in bright primary colours with an archery motif. However, Escapologic's take is a lot more archaeological. The setting is mode...
It’s no surprise that someone in Nottingham finally created a Robin Hood themed game - It really was only a matter of time. Robin of Lockskey was the game I was most looking forward to on this visit to Escapologic, and it did not disappoint. Highly immersive, great puzzles, and totally adventurous, this is a must play game for sure. 
This room will thrill any history buff, Robin Hood fan (and you're in Nottingham so you'd better be!) or looking for a very atmospheric room with some clever tasks and surprises. It does call for some dexterity as well as climbing and crawling, so a great one for kids and don't wear your best jeans!! Pros should escape this room in a very short time so don't rush, just enjoy the authentic experience and good luck!

One of my favourite types of Escape Room is a quest, where the goal isn’t exactly to escape or to solve a world crisis, but one that takes you on a journey

A clever room that makes full use of space, including one of the best transitions between areas I have ever come across. Some really physical puzzles gave it more of a crystal maze feel at times which is not a bad thing!

Great game to start new players with
