Chapelgates, 84b Mill Street, Macclesfield, Cheshire, SK11 6NR
As a child Henry toured the world with his family's famous magic show, House Of Illusion.
Henry would wait patiently backstage during the performances just wishing for the day he would be allowed to take his place in the limelight. Unfortunately, Henry's parents didn't think he was good enough to be included in the show.
Henry grew up bitter and disillusioned with the world, the anger and resentment he felt towards his family intensified and then...... they disappeared!
Henry's Mother, Father, Girlfriend, his Aunt and Uncle and several of the show's performers, staff and suppliers to the theatre just vanished. Henry claims they have all gone abroad to continue the show without him and the theatre has been signed over to him.
We need you time detectives to go in and find out what really happened to them. You’ll need to get into the theatre and have a good look around without arousing Henry’s suspicions. Find everything you need to convince Henry you’re magic show performers, put on a good show and Henry will probably trust you to wander the theatre freely so you can complete your investigations.
Be warned, Henry is short tempered and impatient, don’t blow your cover whatever you do!

If you also set a star rating, the star rating won't be shown anywhere but will still be used when calculating the game's overall score on Escape The Review.
This game certainly had the wow factor when entering a massive set so cleverly designed to allow other games to be played in the same setup with some interesting changes to the story and layout etc. A good variety of puzzles and fun aspects. I would certainly suggest everyone tries it and if they are hooked like us will want to do all the games here. I would choose more tags if I could as it was also beautiful, clever, magical, funny with great hosting.
Another absolute winner at this superb establishment. This game combines so many of the best bits of every other escape room and ties them together in a way that creates an immersive puzzle-fest that matches style with substance.
Everything about Escape Quest screams quality, from the beautiful fixtures and fittings to the puzzles themselves. Elaine and Mike put such thought and care into everything and those who have done the other games here won't be disappointed; Henry Fortune absolutely matches up to the quality of Mr Copplestone and Percy Pendleton
When it comes to escape rooms, this is the ultimate power hour. Superb.
Amazing hosting, accommodations and story. Great set and puzzles. Will be visiting for the other stories!
Chaplegate Mysteries returned with its third instalment - House of Illusion. Overall a very successful room and is buckets of fun. Puzzles are very intuitive and definitely a challenge for enthusiasts. Theming and immersion is spectacular, although I felt a certain je ne sais quoi was missing compared to their other two experiences. Regardless, support this incredible business as this is not one to miss!
As always this room did not disappoint. Every time we play here it's absolutely amazing. A must do in my eyes
We had a brilliant time playing this room! The set design was amazing - you can tell a LOT of time has been put into it - it had a great variety of puzzles and locks and the whole narrative was so immersive and fun! Especially loved the magic show element and the hosts were so lovely. Can’t wait for the next instalment!
