Mr Copplestone aka โ€œThe Professorโ€ is an inventor. His greatest invention is the worldโ€™s first time machine, built so he could travel through space and time to find interesting objects and life saving potions to sell in his curiosity shoppe.

The time machine is powered by Time Echo Crystals, these crystals are rare and only a small quantity exist in the world.  Without them the time machine won't work.

Such a precious commodity must be stored & guarded carefully to ensure the future of time travel can continue. There's just one problem with that - Mr Copplestone!

He may be a genius, but he's the most forgetful man you could ever meet.  This morning when he opened his box of Time Echo Crystals he found only one left inside, where could he have put them?

Mr Copplestone and his wife Margaret live on Chapel Street in the year 1873.  We can't rely on Mr Copplestone finding the missing crystals alone so if you're brave enough to jump into his time machine and use the last remaining crystal we have to head to 1873 you could save the future of time travel.

. However the time entry vortex is weak and can only stay open for one hour, get back inside before it closes and bring any crystals you find with you so we can keep them safe back in the future ready for our next time travelling adventure.

First off, this was my first ever failure to escape but this is a well themed room with a wide variance of puzzles, for whatever reason we had a slow start but by the end we solving anything and just ran out of time due to a search fail.  There's a lot to do so 3-4 players recommended if you can.

Curious Encounters has been running at Escape Quest for several years now, but with a significant revamp in 2017. I never played the original version, so can't comment on whether the changes amount to an entirely new game; if in doubt check with the venue. Since Escape Quest was a highlight of our last visit to the area, we were keen to try the games we hadn't played; and the owners were kind enough to allow us to attempt it as a team of two, even though their games have a strict minimum of thre...
A well-executed experience with plenty of puzzles and a fun backdrop.
Curious Encounters is the oldest space at Escape Quest, but has recently had the entire game redesigned and re-implemented. If you played this game before 2017, youโ€™ll have played in the same physical space, but it will have been an entirely different game. I canโ€™t speak for the old version, but the game as it stands now is certainly worth your time.
A puzzle packed and well themed room that keeps you challenged from beginning to end.
