The first escape room has been introduced to the Ashford Town Centre and has been welcoming couples, families, friends and local business teams to face the pressure!

1. Tell us a little bit about Escape Rooms?

An escape room is a fictionally themed room that requires you and your team to solve a variety of mind boggling puzzles within 60 minutes to achieve your objective.

Each clue that you solve will unlock your storyline and bring you closer to success!

Don’t worry too much, we do give you 3 clues during the game which will help you progress if you get too stuck! It is also important for us to add that you are never locked in our rooms, a door is always open.   

2. How did you get started? What made you both decide to open an escape room in Ashford Town Centre?

We always had in the back of our minds that we would one day love to run our own business, but at the time there was nothing we felt 100% certain undertaking.

That was until we played our first escape room in April 2016. We both absolutely loved our experience! It was fun, engaging and a real challenge, something that we hadn’t come across in such a long time. That experience set the wheels in motion.

Ashford for us was a no brainer. We have lived here almost 3 years now, and it is clear to see that Ashford is only improving. We wanted to be able to add to Ashford’s appeal for everyone who lives here, the surrounding towns and the County.

3. How would you describe your escape room compared to the others out there? Without revealing too much!

Pressure Point Escape Rooms is unique in the sense that is designed to appeal to everyone. We find a lot of people are unsure of the idea of being locked in a room with no escape, people believe that the spaces are small and claustrophobic.

We make sure that isn’t the case here! One door in each room is always unlocked meaning you can leave at any point during the game.

We also have spacious rooms so that people have enough space to move and think. Our rooms aren’t scary and nothing is designed to make you jump. It’s important to us that people can play an escape room, no matter what your fears are.

We also do our absolute best to focus on the quality of our puzzles. Our rooms are immersive and set the scene, but we believe our puzzles are the right level of challenging and fun! Our story lines will never be too similar.

If you play an escape room here at Pressure Point Escape Rooms, you won’t play it anywhere else in the world! We design our own rooms and build them ourselves, so it’s unique to us.  

4. What are you most excited about running an escape room in Ashford?

Meeting people and getting everyone as excited about Escape Rooms as we are!

For us, the experience isn’t just the Escape Room, it’s the whole time you are with us. From the moment you walk through the front door, we want our teams to feel special and to have an awesome time! We love hearing what people thought of the room.

We particularly love when people go in and are like, ‘is this it?’ and then they come out buzzing because the room looks so unassuming! People also do the most interesting things in the room, from dressing up in our props to lying on the floor saying things that no one else understands. There is never a dull moment for our customer’s or us!


They now have two escape rooms open for the public. Blank Canvas & From Rags To Riches!

5. What would you say to someone who hasn’t been to an escape room before?

What’s stopping you? It truly is the best fun! You won’t feel adrenaline, desperation and entertainment like it. The buzz afterwards is just awesome, whether you succeed or you don’t! Whether you are a group of 2 or a group of 6, we know that everyone will have fun and trust us, a bigger group does not guarantee you’ll escape.

If you communicate and listen to each other, you will get out! Pressure Point Escape Rooms is not scary and you are not trapped, but the timer is always ticking and the pressure will get your blood pumping! We can’t wait to see you all, if you think you can handle the pressure?
