Please adhere to all government guidelines currently in place, go to: www.visitbrighton.com/coronavirus-covid-19 for up to date city information.
Bewilder Box escape rooms are puzzle based adventure games in which you and your team race against the clock to complete challenges, whilst taking part in a tantalisingly silly and immersive story. For families, friends, stag/hen parties and team building.
For those searching for a unique, thrilling 'Brighton' adventure, look no further! Built and run by a team of local talents, Bewilder Box combines the puzzle solving elements of the Crystal Maze with an immersive theatre style experience where YOU are the main character.
Bewilder Box has two escape rooms located in Brighton and Hove. The Bewilder Box Initiative is located above The Hobgoblin pub in Brighton and Judgement D.A.V.E. is above The Brunswick pub in Hove; two of Brighton and Hove's most popular pubs.
Both rooms are Science Fiction themed and as a new recruit, you’ll become part of the Bewilder Box story.
In The Initiative you'll learn about a top secret organisation burdened with the unenviable task of finding suitable candidates to save mankind. In Judgement D.A.V.E. you'll come up against the Masternet 9000, an AI gone AWOL, and be tasked with moral decision at the end. Find out if you have what it takes to complete the puzzles and challenges using your brain, your wits and the help of 80's super computer D.A.V.E. and your eccentric host. The fate of the world is in your hands and you and your team have 60 minutes prove yourself and complete the game.
The Bewilder Box Initiative is located just 3 minutes’ walk from Brighton station and Judgement D.A.V.E. is about 5 minutes in a taxi from Brighton or Hove station. Both pubs have award winning beer gardens, serve a great selection of drinks and The Brunswick has a kitchen serving food daily. So, if you want to book a table for your group for post-game drinks, just let us know.
Open Thursday-Sunday at The Bewilder Box Initiative and Saturday-Wednesday at Judgement D.A.V.E. (although other days are available via prior arrangement). Games cost £11.28 - £18.42 per person for a team of 7 people (standard games are £129; off-peak games are £99; and super-off-peak games are £79).
You might think once you've done one escape room you've done them all, but Bewilder Box is head and shoulders above the rest.
