21 Castle Gate, NG1 7AQ


2-5 players

60 minutes

Passengers on pilgrimage aboard a trader ship, Evadere The Tempestas, on course to holy Terra. Pilgrims have been escorted to their quarters deep within the bowels of the vessel, upon entering they are told the ship will soon translate into the warp and the journey will begin. The ship stirs into life, players hear a distant rumble and feel a faint vibration as the engines wake. As the warp jump is made, the warp core and several ship systems fail, causing massive damage to the craft. Players have no choice but to leave and find out what has happened or risk being trapped in the crew quarters while the ship is slowly torn apart. Here the real journey begins... battle through the Warp Storm and escape the ever seeping Chaos.
Created in conjunction with Games Workshop, Immaterium is a simultaneous cooperative team experience. For the first time ever, players will be able to jump into the world of Warhammer 40,000 and experience its myriad dangers for real. They will touch, smell and feel all areas of the ship and everything on it – including a talking Servitor. Up to five people at a time can immerse themselves in Immaterium, and explore the deepest recesses of a star-faring vessel facing imminent doom.

Absolutely incredible set design!! One of my favourite rooms of all time. This room is quite physical and flows well, would recommend for both beginner and experienced players alike.

Not a massive fan of warhammer myself at the time but the rest of the group were. The room is stunning, the puzzles were well thought out and didn't require any warhammer knowledge at all. The whole atmosphere was brilliant!

theme of the game is very original. you don't have to be a Warhammer fan to enjoy this one. Light on puzzles but not a bad thing, it was a more physical game with lots of tunnels to crawl and climb inside of. Highly recommend this game if you're looking for something slightly different to try!

I'm conflicted by this room.  Easily one of the best theming of any room that we've done.  The decor, the sounds, the special effects - lovely.  And certainly more activity/movement required than any other room we have done.  And I would imagine as a two player, quite good fun.  But as a four player, we found it a bit linear, with 1-2 players twiddling thumbs waiting for the next step.  And even now, there are a few puzzles where we still don't know why what we did worked.

[as an aside, this is the only room I think we've ever been to where the host didn't ask us if we had done any escape rooms before putting us in; also one of the few where we have no official record of time taken, either on the team photo, or a little card. Not sure if this is policy or not at Escapologic, but it didnt add to the experience]

Just not for us. Didn’t seem to flow and difficult to hear what was being said. Lots of people will certainly love this game but unfortunately just didn’t hold our attention. Also felt like the host wasn’t there a lot of the time and we were trying to get clues but no response or guidance

Possibly one of the most visually stunning games that we have ever played. Ok, the puzzles didn’t particularly click with us but that won’t stop us recommending this game. Make sure you stretch before you play, you need to be quite mobile as you navigate around the ship.
This room will thrill any Warhammer fan of course, but also any general sci-fi fan, or anyone who has ever thought they would love the chance at escaping from a perilous situation (whilst never actually being in danger!) 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 just don't wear your best trousers!!

A lot of credit has to go to Escapologic for the sheer number of rooms they have created and how well they have done with them. This was probably the least favourite of the 4 rooms we did here but none the less, it was still a really enjoyable experience that completely immerses you as soon as the door is closed behind you. If you are a WarHammer fan, you must try this but it is still a very good room for anyone wanting to test themselves in quite a difficult room. 

Immaterium delivers a gritty but pretty set with fun, physical puzzles, although be prepared for that lack of user feedback to potentially leave you frustrated. I’d recommend it to anyone who’s in Nottingham, but especially Warhammer or sci-fi fans or those who like physical challenges.
