Mystery in History

Jail Break

Jailbreak 4 will launch in Spring 2020, but before then we are delighted to revisit some of our previous seasons for those who haven't been able to play this season to date.

Jailbreak 1 revisited

This Autumn we are re-running the first series of Jailbreak, which was set in 1898 and ran at St Neots Museum between April and July 2018. These repeats are being offered for people who were unable to book sessions during spring 2018, or who have only recently become followers of Jailbreak. If you have done the Jailbreak challenge before you are of course welcome to repeat it, but please be aware that whilst some of the clues have been tweaked, the essence of the challenge is the same. 'Jailbreak 1 revisited’ is a limited season, and will be running on the following dates:
• Saturday Oct 12th
• Sunday Oct 13th
• Friday Oct 18th
• Saturday Oct 19th
• Sunday Oct 20th
• Saturday Nov 2nd
• Sunday Nov 3rd
• Monday Nov 4th

Tickets for Season 1 revisited can be purchased here.

Jailbreak 2 revisited

This Autumn we are re-running the second series of Jailbreak, which was set in 1916 and ran at St Neots Museum between October 2018 and the end of the year. These repeats are being offered for people who were unable to book sessions last autumn, or who have only recently become followers of Jailbreak. If you have done the Jailbreak challenge before you are of course welcome to repeat it, but please be aware that whilst some of the clues have been tweaked, the essence of the challenge is the same. 'Jailbreak 2 revisited’ is a limited season, and will be running on the following dates:
• Friday Nov 15th
• Saturday Nov 16th
• Sunday Nov 17th
• Saturday Nov 30th
• Sunday Dec 1st
• Monday Dec 2nd
• Friday Dec 6th
• Saturday Dec 7th
• Sunday Dec 8th

Tickets for Season 2 revisited can be purchased here.

Afternoon Sessions are at 1.15, 2.15, 3.30, 4.30 and 5.30pm
Evening Sessions are at 5.45, 7, 8 and 9pm.

The Challenge

After being locked in, you and your colleagues will have 60 minutes to break out. You will have to pass through three stages, culminating in your escape through the main gate to the cell corridor. These stages get progressively more complex so you will need to work together, promptly, from the very moment the game starts. This game does not require any strength or physical force. All the information you need to escape is already provided, as long as you use your eyes, ears and your brain and are able to work together as a team.

FAQs

Is Jail Break suitable for people in wheelchairs?
Yes, though you may have difficulty in completing stage 1 of the challenge due to the need to use stairs. You will have the option of joining stage 1, or waiting till your colleagues have completed that stage before joining them.

What is the largest group size?
8 people

What is the minimum age that can play?
We would recommend that the attraction is unsuitable for anyone aged under 10.

What if I get claustrophobic?
No need to worry, someone will be at hand to help you out... early escapes are assisted when medically required!

Are there prizes?
Successful teams will have the option to have their photo taken with a board recording their escape time. The team who escapes in the fastest time throughout the season will get a special prize, and our facebook will keep an updated list of ‘top times’.

I loved the museum but didn’t get chance to look properly at the displays.
Then come back again during normal opening hours which are 11am – 4pm Tuesday – Saturday. Admission is free for local residents and £3 for non-residents.

I really enjoyed it, can I come back again?
The attraction will remain unaltered for each season, so you will find it repetitive if you come back in that time. We hope to have further seasons to follow with new challenges, new clues and new forms of escape, so trust you will want to come back for that.
