Is your Hen Party brave enough to take on Pig Face in Bristol’s most immersive escape room

Your Hen Party will be taken underground into the dark, eerie depths of the Old Crown Court Prison Cells in Central Bristol.

The Hen Do must work together and stay calm under the pressure of time and fear to work out how you’re going to free yourself and make your escape.

A unique Bristol activity that has been rated 5 stars by many Hen Do’s who’ve visited us. You get to star in, and play out your own movie horror scene, which we hope will bring many nightmares for weeks to come.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the HELL IN A CELL Horror Escape Experience?

You have been kidnapped by a sadistic serial killer. He is a disturbed, simple deviant with a harrowing distaste for the outside world. He has now killed multiple victims and used segments of their skin to sculpt a mask that he often wears . Your Hen Party has been incapacitated and imprisoned in the terrifying underground prison cells he lives in. We suggest you work out how to get out before he comes back for you…

How long does it last?

Your Hen Party will be on site for up to an hour and a half. You’ll have an hour to make your escape once the experience goes live.

Is there an age limit?

We haven’t come across a Hen Do yet that is below 18 but just in case, due to the nature and content of the experience, we recommend players are 15+ to participate. If you are 13+ and are feeling brave we will allow you to participate but you must be accompanied by a parent/guardian who can look out for you.

Is it scary?

Yes! You will be entering a set of a horror film. The environment is intimidating, tense and stressful. Think about the movies Saw, Hostel & Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Don’t worry though, we have had hundreds of Hen Party’s visiting us in Bristol and they have all absolutely loved the experience. Check out our reviews on Facebook & Trip Advisor for reassurance or call us if you like.

What if I don’t like it and want to come out?

You’re lucky then this isn’t for real…

If you or any of your Hen Party can’t handle it, At ANY point during the experience you will be able to immediately communicate with the event manager and leave the game. If possible we’ll aim to keep the game going for the other players.

Can we drink before to calm our nerves?

There’s ‘having a drink’ and there’s being drunk and all over the place!

We can’t allow you to play if you’re drunk or high on anything else. If you turn up and are intoxicated you will not be allowed to play and will not be refunded. It’s dark down there and at times disorientating. Being intoxicated on drink and/or drugs does not mix well with this environment.

Most Hen Party’s are going to involve having some drinks, try keeping this until after the game, you’ll probably want a drink then anyway…

Why is there a maximum of 10 players, can we have more?

Whilst we can fit more, we are not an attraction that will overload with players. It’s important to us that your Hen Party has the best experience and we want you all to be able to participate. If you have a larger group we can run games back to back in a very slick manor with minimal waiting for the other group. We do it a lot for larger groups.

Will it just be our group or mixed with others?

For Hen Groups of 6 or less you may have another small group to a total of 10 players. If you want an exclusive game please let us know in advance or simply book for minimum 7 people

What time should we arrive before we start?

Plan for your Hen Do to arrive 5 minutes before to allow for any delays you may incur. Say you book for 6pm; our Event Manager will be there at 6pm ready to deliver the brief. We operate a slick operation and are strict on time keeping.

I’m running late, will you wait for me?

We’re very sorry but no. We have a timetable to stick to and if we over ran we’d then have to push back the next game. (If there’s no one booked in after then possibly). We cannot allow you to enter the experience mid way, as it would disrupt those already involved. No refunds will be offered for latecomers or No shows. If you’re stuck make sure you call asap as we will try to get you in if possible.

What should I wear?

Not your Sunday Best! Loose fitting, relaxed fit clothes would be best for ease of movement. It’s a bit grubby down there so you may get a bit of dust on you. If your Hen is in fancy dress that’s fine with us.

Can I take photos?

You’re totally going to want to remember your time with us and your Hen Do in Bristol so we provide opportunity to take photos at the beginning and the end of the experience.

To prevent the exposure of the experience to others yet to participate we will not allow photographs to be taken in the cells. You will be required to hand in your mobile phone and all your other belongings at the starting brief.

What happens if we don’t escape?

Luckily for you this is a simulated experience. When your time runs the event manager will let you out. Or will they…

What happens if we do escape?

You’re still alive, good for you – Maybe you’ll appreciate life a bit more now! Go celebrate with your Hen Party and enjoy the rest of your weekend in Bristol

Anything else we should know?

To get the best out of this experience, immerse yourself. Allow yourself to believe in where you are, what’s going to happen and what you need to do. It’s a tense, challenging experience that you’ll find extremely unique and should give you plenty to talk about after. Anyone who’s nervous in the group will be missing out if they don’t see it through so do your best to get them involved in Bristol’s most unique Hen Activity.
