ExCeL London has become the first London venue to host escape experience Locked In A Room.

Up to 78 players can compete to escape from 13 themed rooms by solving puzzles and discovering clues. Participants have a maximum of one hour to solve the clues and escape from their room.

James Rees, executive director at ExCeL London, said: “We are delighted that Locked In A Room has chosen ExCeL to open a London arm of their business.

“With CentrEd at ExCeL, we believe we can offer delegates something truly unique, combining training or a smaller meeting with a fun, interactive team building experience that’s unlike any other. We look forward to working with Locked In A Room to introduce this great new product to our clients and, in turn, their exhibitors and delegates.”

The space provided by ExCeL has been purposefully designed to provide a unique and unforgettable experience and we look forward to welcoming ExCeL visitors to our venue.”
