The Game Lab
At The Game Lab, we love all things puzzle and games. So much, we wanted to share this love with as many people as possible. We create the challenge that best suits your event or location and run it from start to end all the while working with you to deliver your vision.
Our mobile escape room, set up in a converted horsebox, is an exciting addition to your event that are unable to provide this fun experience. While our online adventures concept works so well for remote players, especially during lockdown events, to appeal to a broad audience who want a challenge. We also offer alternative reality gaming experiences to immerse you into a new world suited to you and your event.
We love what we do and we hope you do too.
Mobile escape room-
The way we work is by offering an up to 15-minute escape room experience for groups of up to 4 adults. We can have 3 groups an hour due to reset times so can handle 12 adults an hour. Our standard booking time is 3 hours so can accommodate 36 guests. Our standard booking is based off a game called "Find the Rings" where the worst thing possible has occurred and the wedding bands have been taken and the guests must save the day by finding them. Included with this is a photo book containing images and messages from all your guests after their game with some of our lovely props. Bespoke theming is also available with some couples opting for beach-themed, superhero, wizard and horror to name a few. However, creating a new story based on the bespoke theme and full room dressing would be an additional cost.
Our new concept that has refined the escape room experience to adapt to lockdown situations Currently, we have teamed up with venues such as the National Space Centre to create escape/puzzle experiences played online using a video of the venue, puzzles, an inventory and helpful hints.
This concept offers an immersive third-person visual experience of being at the escape/puzzle game location. Released as a video, players follow along with a digital or physical package to solve the varying challenges they face.
Due to guest number reductions, we are now offering this experience to couples looking to include an unlimited number of guests in their wedding entertainment. At the time of your choosing, before your wedding day, and in partnership with your venue (permission from the venue is required), we film and set puzzles. Using this footage we create a private page on our website to be accessed by you and your guests. The standard game would be based around the Find the Rings concept of the mobile escape room so your guests can literally feel like they are going to save your big day!
Bespoke theming is also available as well as the inclusion of the soon to be bride and groom into the video as the players that are guiding their guests around to the puzzles.
Alternative reality gaming (ARG)-
This is the truly bespoke and immersive game that goes beyond the creation of challenges and puzzles to the imagining of whole new worlds. Each one is unique and tailored to very specific requirements of the players allowing us to blend a mixture of technology and physical challenges.
These adventures could include short time frame missions and challenges to continuous stories and campaigns with no time frame at all! In terms of weddings, these could build up to a proposal, the big day or actually take place at the wedding.
At The Game Lab, we are committed to delivering an exciting, thrilling experience to our clients. With over a decade's worth of experience in eventing and exhibiting we can elevate your event into something spectacular. We all love a challenge and can be relied upon to ensure that we meet and exceed your expectations.
Whether there is a particular theme to your event or you want an amazing centrepiece we pull out all of the stops to make your day.
So if you're an experienced escape room player or just a little bit curious, get in touch so we can create something that works for you

"We booked Thegamelab for our Wedding when we saw them at a Steam Punk event because we loved it so much. They themed it around us and the big day, our guests and ourselves loved it. The photos with a guest book are a real special touch which was themed identically to the wedding theme! The staff are so friendly and professional at the same time.Sent on 04/01/2020
I can’t recommend them enough and I certainly will be using them again."
"I can not recommend Thegamelab enough. We booked them recently for our wedding, they were brilliant. They created a theme based on us to make it personal, and weren't intrusive and blended in so well. Our guest absolutely loved it as well and it is so unique, they created a great photo book to take away. I would highly recommend them, thank you for making a memorable day even more memorable."Sent on 04/01/2020
