For many years Coalville has been a coal mining town until the closure of the final pit in 1983. Records document the town’s history and found that, at one point, there were 3 main collieries across the area.

This seemed to be correct until we unearthed what could be the entrance to a fourth location. Having worked with local historians, it has become apparent that there are some artefacts still undiscovered inside, 8 mining lanterns to be exact. It is your job to find as many of these as you can.

But, the mine has been locked away for some time. Due to its age, there is no light inside so it’ll require your sense of touch, hearing and smell alone. Meter readings also suggest a high level of Carbon Monoxide. It’s safe enough for you to stay inside for 60 minutes at most.

What an interesting experience! Not scary in any way and makes you rely on all the senses you don’t use as often in escape rooms. Also puts enthusiasts back on the same page as someone new to the hobby as you explore the space without being able to see your hand in front of your face! The puzzles are very varied and are adapted perfectly to the surroundings - physical, logical, search and themed brilliantly around Coalville’s mining history. Lots of fun!
