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 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...

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!
