About Us

Enigma Quests

Our acclaimed escape rooms combine interconnected puzzles, immersive locations, and captivating stories, offering teams of 3 to 5 a truly unforgettable time.

With just 60 minutes on the clock, you’ll need to work together if you want to succeed! From magical exams to daring heists, you’re sure to find a room that’s right for you. We have expanded over the years to offer 3 varied escape rooms from our Holborn location, and in 2024 will be opening 3 additional rooms in Holborn alongside our new Escape Room Arcade experience.

Opening in 2015, Enigma Quests was one of the first escape rooms in the UK, with founders Nargiza and Dmitri Chihaiglo recognising the amazing potential of these interactive experiences for families, friends, and colleagues.

While there are now thousands of escape rooms across the country, we still stand out thanks to our fantastic levels of interactivity, our brilliant puzzle designs, and the amazing service we offer. 

Our team have worked hard to maintain what makes us great as we expand to additional games and locations, helping us build an amazing community of fans. We’ve entertained tens of thousands of players from across the UK and beyond, and can’t wait to see what the future holds.

Our Values

We take escape rooms seriously, and every room we build goes through an elaborate design and testing process to ensure it offers the perfect level of challenge for players.

Our team look to push boundaries with each release, with School of Witchcraft and Wizardry operating as a completely automated escape room, and The Million Pound Heist introducing a shared leaderboard for all players.

Maximising the experience of every customer is crucial to us, from continually renovating each room to keep it pristine, to training our expert Questmasters. We want every player, whether they’re an escape room fan or this is their first time, to have an absolutely amazing experience.

Your Escape Room Experience

In each of our escape rooms you’ll be guided by a Questmaster, who’ll introduce you to the rules of escape rooms and the world of your game, and will accompany you over the radio throughout.

You’ll have just 60 minutes on the timer once your game starts, with your Questmaster there to point you in the right direction if you get stuck. Once you’ve completed your game, they’ll also debrief your team, talking you through how you performed.

Many of our players come to us for their first escape room experience, and our team of Questmasters are there to make sure they have a fantastic time.

Escape rooms are interactive experiences set within detailed multi-room environments. In them, you and your team will have 60 minutes to solve a range of interconnected puzzles, in order to accomplish an ultimate goal. In early rooms, this goal was typically to escape the room itself, but in our rooms, you’ll be following a story with an exciting climax, from completing your wizarding exams to preventing a missile launch.

Puzzles will involve everything from deduction to memory, to tests of physical dexterity, with the sheer range in each room allowing each team member a time to shine. From family days out to team-building experiences, escape rooms have become a global phenomenon, and Enigma Quests offer some of the highest-rated rooms in London.

    A great room (School of Witchcraft and Wizardary) with fun puzzles that had my seasoned escape room mind scrambling. Tom was an excellent game host and overly accommodating to my family. A must do when you’re visiting London!

    Christie McLarty

    Such a great experience would definatly be booking again, all the puzzels were so creative and well thought out our host Jonny was a star... loved every minute.

    Domonique Evans

    Really friendly team. Fun games, we really enjoyed it and so did the 3 kids aged 7-9.

    Gareth Jones

    We went for my daughter's 11th birthday, me and 4 x 11 year olds, and escaped from the School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. We had a blast! I was a bit worried it might be too hard but the puzzles were the right mix of tricky but solvable once we had cracked the logic. Will definitely be back to try another room.

    Lucy Davies

    A great experience. Did the witchcraft and wizardry room. No need to solve all clues in order which means you can progress through the subjects faster. A good selection of puzzles to solve. The staff were very good at reading the room. Highly recommend.

    Natasha Bell-Asher

    We had a fantastic time in the submarine escape. This was our second visit and the first was million pound heist. Tom is excellent and we had a fun time. Highly recommended.
