Lucardo Escape Rooms

Lucardo Escape Rooms, Virginia House, 5 - 7 Great Ancoats Street, Manchester, M4 5AD – Visit Now

Over the past five years escape rooms have become a highly popular phenomenon in experience based entertainment. There is a certain allure to being locked in a room with the added pressure of a ticking clock, which – combined with the roleplay and escapism involved in immersing yourself in a fictional situation – has proven itself enticing to thrill seekers around the globe. In Manchester we are spoilt for choice when it comes to choosing which room and scenario we want to break free from.

Located in Ancoats opposite the Frog and Bucket comedy club, you will find Lucardo. A group of five completely different escape rooms set across multiple time zones and locations. Working as a team you will need to solve a mixture of puzzles, riddles and mental challenges to achieve your goal.

Test your wizardry in University of Magic: The Entrance Exam – a game in which your wand wielding, spell casting and potion making skills are put to the test. Fully clad in wizarding attire, you must demonstrate strong wit and determination with the hope of securing a place at the most prestigious magical Higher Educational Institution around.

Take on Virginia House, where you’ll be tracking the activities of a serial killer to prevent them from striking again. Or try your hand at Espionage, where as a member of the British Intelligence Service during the Second World War you’ll attempt to escape from an enemy bunker. If your team aren’t ones for being the ‘good guys’, you can also attempt to steal the famous 190 carat Saratov diamond in an intense bank heist.

This April will also see the opening of The Prison, a scenario in which you and your fellow inmates have an hour to flee your confines using deception, bribery and skill. With the new room opening on the 15th April 2019, Lucardo Escape Rooms is THE place to test your nerve, skill and teamwork.
