Deadlocked is the new real life escape game coming to Reading this summer. You and your team will be locked inside a room and your task is to escape!Add Deadlocked Escape Rooms and other attractions to your Reading trip itinerary using our Reading day trip planning app .
Our first room opens on 16th September and is called 'The Phoenix Research'
Professor Bradley Samwell, the quirky head of research at the Wexell Corporation, has gone missing. His bizarre disappearance coincides with the completion of some rather questionable, but valuable research on a project called ‘Phoenix’. The Wexell Corporation has asked your team, with your very specific set of skills, to investigate the missing employee and retrieve the research before the lawyers and police get involved. But what if there is more to this research, and this company than lies on the surface? Will you complete your task for Wexell or uncover a deeper conspiracy?
Great for nervous ‘escapers’ and beginners; there’s nothing in this room that should scare you, and multiple endings mean that beginners and experts alike will find the room suited to their skills.
Opening in October is 'The Testing Chamber':
The Wexell Corporation has developed an artificial intelligence, designed to create bespoke escape rooms that adapt to the competency of the players in real time. This exciting technology of tomorrow is not yet ready for widespread use, but this is your opportunity to get a sneak peek and apply to Wexell to become a beta-tester. You will be tasked with testing the system to it’s limits and provide feedback about how to improve it for the future; that is, as long as nothing goes wrong in the process.
Great for escapers that want a little more immersive story and humour from their rooms. Also, fans of Portal!

My girlfriend and I have attempted around 15 escape rooms together and this was our favourite so far: primarily because Charlie and James, the hosts, make it such a joyful experience. Their enthusiasm, ability to simultaneously stay in character whilst not being weird, and the attention to detail in their room are just wonderful! Highly, highly recommended.
Let's be frank, I had never done an escape room before and I had absolutely no idea what to expect going in! Our hostess was fantastic, she explained everything to me and made our team feel super comfortable and ensured that we had a great time. When our team got a little stuck Charlie (our hostess) was more than happy to give us a little nudge in the right direction without spoiling any of the game. Highly recommended, super fun, very clever and great Value for money. Don't be put off if your a beginner!
