5 Star Escape Room in Bristol - Hell In A Cell Reviews

The Ultimate Horror Escape Room in Bristol

Hell In A Cell is a unique escape room concept where you star in, and play out your own horror movie scene. An exhilarating escape game experience that will give you nightmares for weeks to come.

Have you got the nerve and skills to escape?

Kidnapped and taken prisoner by a sadistic serial killer, you’ll need to work together under pressure to figure out how to free yourselves and escape. You and your team will be locked underground in a 19th century prison cell in the dark, eerie depths of Bristol’s Old Crown Courts. Prepare yourself, both mentally and physically, for a truly horrifying escape from reality.


What is the HELL IN A CELL horror escape room 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 . You’ve 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?

You’ll 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?

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

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

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

If you can’t handle it, At ANY point during the experience you will be able to immediately communicate with the event manager, the experience will be stopped.

Why is there a maximum of 10 players?

We believe that by adding more it will dilute the experience for every player.

Will it just be our group or mixed with others?

For 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

Can I have a few drinks before?

We will not allow you to play if 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.

What time should we arrive before we start?

Plan 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.

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.

Can I take photos?

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

There will be opportunity to take photos at the beginning and the end.

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…

Do you have a cancellation policy?

Yes we do – If you want a refund or re-schedule you must request this before 4 weeks/28 days from your game date. Anything after that we can’t do sorry. You can transfer your tickets to others if you like though.
