THE BUSINESS...

Cluedini, is a brand new, exciting, immersive and innovative activity that will be based in Yarm, in the North East of England.

We could go into copious detail at this stage, but we'll try to keep it simple...

  • Teams of up to 6 people will enter a room for one hour
  • The rooms are themed, with distinct storylines and characters
  • In the room will be a series of puzzles, clues, riddles and codes which the team must work together to solve
  • The whole thing is against the clock and teams must solve all of the puzzles within 60 minutes.

In short, the whole thing is like some sort of weird Crystal Maze and Famous Five lovechild, just without Richard O'Brien and Timmy the Dog.

- - - - - - - - -

Sounds fun you may be thinking, but who is this whole shebang targeted at? Well, there are a multitude of people who we know will love it...

  • Businesses searching a unique team building activity
  • Groups of friends looking for something new to do together
  • Families who want more than just bowling and cinema trips
  • Students post-Countdown and pre-pub
  • Stags & Hens on the hunt for a great way to kick off the celebrations
  • Parents on the prowl for a brilliant new kids party experience 

The Cluedini experience can be tailored to all ages from 8 to 80 (and beyond!) and can even be themed for each experience, making it the perfect choice for anyone looking for something fun, that's a little bit different.

- - - - - - - - -

Based in North Yorkshire, but with a target market that stretches far beyond the county borders, the rooms will be located in the pretty town of Yarm - a recent winner of the Best High Street in Britain. With it's bustling nightlife, superb eateries, and quirky niche shops, Yarm is the ideal place to while away a several hours, base yourselves for a night out, or head to for team building and social gatherings.

WE NEED YOU...

Chances are that if you've got this far we've managed to capture your attention, but we're guessing that you've a few questions for us and that they go something like this...

- - - - - - - - - -

When Will Cluedini Open?

The target date is January 10th 2017. If everything goes swimmingly, we may even be able to launch in December, or if things slip there's a chance we could be pushed back into late January.

Either way, we'll keep you informed at all stages as we recognise that without you we can't get this off the ground.

- - - - - - - - - -

How Will The Cash Be Spent?

The money that's being ploughed into the business from our end will be sufficient to get the ball rolling, but it might not allow us to launch the business with all the bells and whistles we'd like. We have secured premises on the High Street in Yarm on a long term lease, but there's a heck of a lot of work required to get them into shape. As such, the money raised from our Kickstarter backers will be predominantly spent in 3 ways...

Firstly, the Kickstarter cash injection will ensure we have sufficient funds to remodel the premises as we require - knocking down walls, building new ones in their place etc. Ultimately this will allow us to incorporate both a brand new reception area AND a second escape room into Cluedini at launch.

Secondly it will allow us to enhance the visitor experience big style. We don't just want to launch a business, we want to launch an adventure. We recognise how important it is to give visitors a fantastic time from beginning to end and your investment will be used to add as many player enhancements as possible along the way.

Finally, we will use the Kickstarter funds to help promote the business to a wider audience. This in turn will then help give greater exposure to any brand who choses to back us, and in turn provide extra funds further down the line for in-game enhancements.

Why Should This Be Backed?

We're all tired of the same tired forms of entertainment and team building, and that's where we, with your help, can come in. To entice you to support this great concept, we've pulled together a range of options for Kickstarter backers (that you can see in all their glory to the right or under the 'Rewards' tab), and hopefully at least one of them will tickle your fancy and encourage you to step on board:

  • For any friends and families we can offer you the chance to play our first room at a massively discounted price, along with a range of goodies into the bargain.

  • For businesses, bands and organisations (or vain individuals for that matter!), then chance to be part of our first game - whether it's as a clue, leaderboard backer or room name sponsor - is quirky, yet at the same time makes great marketing sense. We expect a cracking footfall over the 6 months along with a significant online and offline presence, not to mention any coverage we'll get in local and national news.

We hope to welcome you on board and get this innovative and exciting project off the ground in early 2017.

Thanks for reading.

Chris & The Team at Cluedini.

Risks and challenges

We don't really foresee too many challenges or risks at this stage. We have just agreed a long term lease on a great premise on Yarm High Street and picked the keys up a short while ago.

Of course we're not naive enough to think nothing is going to to a little astray, so there there is the potential for delays in proceedings if things outside of our control happen.That said, rest assured we'll keep you informed at all times as to how things are progressing.

In short, we think we've got everything covered (famous last words)!
