A NEW escape room experience will open in Kidderminster town centre later this month to welcome puzzle-loving customers.

Kidderminster Escape Rooms is expected to open its doors at the former Teach Me Music Academy site on Worcester Street, on June 28.

It will be open for bookings from June 29. 

The Mayor of Kidderminster will do the honours and officially open the site.

Owner Adam Buick, who runs Holt Heath-based Top Escape Rooms, said: "We have been working very hard behind the scenes and we are really excited that our brand new game The Mystic Temple is now completed.

"We are really looking forward to opening to the public."

The Mystic Temple, where participants must find the ancient artefact before the ruins crumble, is the first of three escape rooms which will operate from the site. 

The opening will create eight part-time and two full-time jobs.

Adam, aged 57, said: "We've always been the closest escape room to Kidderminster, so we decided it would be a good move to open up in the town.

"We have five escape rooms at Holt Heath and we will have three in Kidderminster."

Adam, who spent 25 years as a tribute act to Meatloaf and Blues Brothers and who ran his own entertainments agency, started Top Escape Rooms five years ago, just before the pandemic hit.

The second escape room game at the Kidderminster site will be called Rock Stars Revenge and the third, which is hoped will be open by Christmas, will be called Jingle Joy Ride.

The escape rooms are suited to age 12 and over and are aimed at the adult market.

Escape rooms are designed to be fun, active puzzles designed in clue or riddle form and are a new craze sweeping the nation.

Teach Me Music Academy has remained onsite, but has relocated to the first floor.
