About

Hello! My name is Mathew and myself and my partner Craig are looking for funding to start a fun new business in Cardiff early 2016. We've worked out costs of about £3000 to start with which will pay for materials to build the rooms and source a location. Any amount you pledge will be really appreciated and please share our project with your friends, family and work mates.

What's the idea?

Code Rooms will be Cardiff's first live escape room games! 

Have you ever wanted to play the Crystal Maze or played a room escape game on your phone? Code Rooms will let you and your friends take on the challenge in the real world. 

We'll offer a fun new activity to play with friends, a challenging team exercise to complete with your work mates or perhaps something different for a first date? 

How do you play? 

You and up to four friends are locked in a room for one hour. You've got to solve puzzles, decipher clues and crack codes to escape! 

If you don't escape within the hour, you lose!

What puzzles will there be? 

Lots! You'll have to work fast with your friends to find the right keys by searching everywhere. You'll need to work together to crack codes that will unlock the next puzzle and find the right clues to solve the final code.

Against the clock, there's no time to lose or you'll be locked in, maybe forever! 

How much will it cost?

We want to offer a great service at a reasonable price. Based on similar escape games we've worked out the RRP will be...

For 2 people it will be £20 each and for 3 people £18 each. The more people in a room, the cheaper it gets so for 4 people it will be £17 each for 5 people only £16 each.

We'll also offer student discount! You'll be able to get 10% off just by showing your student or NUS card!

Sounds like fun, what's the plan? 

Once we've sorted out the funding, we'll source a location close to Cardiff's town centre. We'll initially have two or three rooms for you to choose from. 

For example, you could...

  • be locked in a bank vault and have to find the right keys and combinations to unlock the vault door
  • be trapped in a dark creepy dungeon with only one torch and have to search for the right key
  • have to escape from a mad scientists laboratory and try to not get caught before he returns

Our rooms will all have strong themes and designs, with Cardiff and Welsh history incorporated where possible.

Here's some great examples of Escape Games out there. Why not help bring one to Cardiff?

Who am I?

I have lived in Cardiff for seven years since starting University and I've explored the city and enjoyed everything that it has to offer. I thought something is missing.

There are no live room escape rooms in Cardiff! 

I've played a range of different escape room games across the UK (and one in Rome!) and have enjoyed each and every one. They're so much fun and always unique.

After studying Business at University, the chance to open my own business and create a new fun activity for everyone in Cardiff to enjoy has lit a fire under me.

The ideas and plans are in place, now it's down to you for your support. I promise you won't be disappointed with the results.

Risks and challenges

Every start up company has risks but from personal work experience, tons of research and a University Business degree these have been planned out and will be minimised. Our team has the passion and drive to bring this to Cardiff and we just need funding to be able to fulfil this dream.
