FANS of a challenge will be able to put their logic to the test at a planned new live escape room game in Bolton town centre.

Proposals have been submitted to the council which could see the No Exit live escape rooms game set up in empty premises.

If approved, teams of between two and five people will be locked in a room for an hour and tasked with finding clues, solving puzzles and breaking codes in a bid to find a way out.

Escape room games have become increasingly popular in the Far East and Europe in recent years and have started to appear across towns and cities in the UK.

Now the No Exit company wants to bring the challenge to the people of Bolton.

A spokesman for the company said: “We want to provide live 4D exit/escape games in Bolton town centre for the people of Bolton and its visitors.

“This will be a fun and exciting game for all, including families, friends and students and will be fantastic for corporate team building events.”

“It will be a challenging but fun game that requires team effort, communication and most of all provides an enjoyable experience.”

If plans are approved by the council, No Exit rooms could be set up in two town centre locations — in vacant units in Market Street and nearby in Deansgate.

The company said it is hoping to add to the increasing number of developments taking place in and around the town centre with a “different” entertainment experience.

A spokesman added: “If planning permission is granted it will provide a different entertainment experience for the people of Bolton and the surrounding areas, and will no doubt compliment the current developments in the Bolton Town Centre and in the Market Place Shopping Centre.”

The planning application will now be analysed by planning officers before being debated and decided by members of the council’s planning committee.
