The Rig escape rooms Newark on Trent

TAKE ON the rig WWII’s “best kept secret”

In 1943 forty-two American Oil Miners secretively descended on Kelham Hall in a last ditch effort to prop up the British War effort and supply much needed fuel to our troops in battle.

75 years later their drilling sites have been unearthed and all is not well. We have an imminent disaster upon us, the clock is ticking and we need you to save Kelham Hall and everyone in it!

They are looking for groups of would be engineers, highly skilled in communications, team work and with physical and mental prowess under pressure. Your team must enter the facility, workout how to shut the RIG down and get out before the time is up.

Ashton Carter presents ‘MYSTERIOSA’

Mysteriosa blends Ashton’s love of storytelling, stage magic and the paranormal to create a world where ancient objects show their secret powers and spirits make their presence known. Ashton will tell strange stories, demonstrate the power of a relic and safely guide you beyond the veil with a ghostly recreation of a Victorian Séance.

Wonderfully spooky magic with a bizarre edge.

Ashton is influenced by the ghost stories of the early 20th century, 19th-century spiritualism and the paranormal, leading to a show that blurs the line between the real and the unreal. You may never look at the world in the same way again.

What are escape rooms?

Here at letsXcape we are developing immersive escape room experiences set within the fantastic stately home of Kelham Hall.

Our experiences bring to life elements of historical events that were pivotal during their time to ensure we don’t forget what took place here at Kelham Hall, Newark on Trent, Nottinghamshire.

Escape rooms, also known as "puzzle rooms" or "escape games", are a physical adventure game in which players solve a series of puzzles, challenges or riddles using clues, hints, and strategy to complete the objectives at hand.

Our immersive escape experiences take you back to the period we focus on, allowing groups of family, friends, co workers and business teams to enjoy a series of challenges together for up to 60 minutes.

Please note - neither of our current escape rooms are 'scary' experiences!

what are escape rooms


Our experiences are designed for between 2 and 6 players at a time and last up to 60 minutes.

We have a flat pricing policy of £20 per adult and £17.50 per child (under 18yrs old) on any day of the week, with a minimum of 2 people required to play an experience and one must be an adult.

We recommend participating children are 12 years or older with those under 18 must be accompanied by at least one adult. For younger children please contact us to query.

Based on the ground floor at Kelham we have rooms that are wheel chair accessible but please check prior to booking for door width sizes to be 100% certain.

We would welcome contact from business groups and can negotiate conference/training facility packages that include our immersive games and escape rooms, whether that’s for team building, reward and recognition or internal development opportunities.

Please contact us for further details.



Here at letsxcape we are pushing the boundaries of support for small, medium and corporate businesses.

Our rooms are designed to encourage team work, communication, methodological thinking and place groups under pressure from the off.

We are confident your staff will gain new experiences and achievements taking part in our immersive escape rooms and environments.

We are also looking to develop hosted sessions for staff development, be that internal promotion, assessment centres or leading the way in recruitment options. What better way for your next leaders to physically demonstrate the skills they have than to watch them deliver them in front of your very eyes through our CCTV systems rather than them telling you during a competency-based interview?

We are also looking to develop bespoke environments in partnership with employers so please get in contact if this is something that interests you.
