A Christmas Escape Room in Cumbria


A Christmas Escape Room in Cumbria

Lakes Escapes in West Cumbria has launched a brand new Christmas themed escape room this year. 'Santa's Lost His Marbles' is available to book now. 

Recommended for ages 7+ (under 16s must be accompanied), this festive escape room is available for 1-6 players. You are given up to 60 minutes to escape. Lakes Escapes can accommodate wheelchair users. Please see the FAQs on their website for further information. 

Here's what they say: 

Santa’s naughtiest elf, Trixie Sugar Socks, has been very naughty this year and just before Christmas she has taken Santa’s marbles. She’s hidden them around your living room while you were sleeping and he’s not very happy!

He’s lost his marbles and doesn’t know where he has put his magic dust, which makes his sled fly! He won’t be delivering this year without it. You need to find Santa’s marbles and get his magic dust. When you find it, you will have to hold it up and recite a magic Christmas rhyme to get it back to Santa on time!

He needs it within 60 minutes or Christmas is cancelled!

Minimum age for this experience is 7 years. All children under the age of 16 years need to have an adult in the party who remains with them at all times.


Sessions should be booked ahead in advance and cost between £15 and £22 per person depending on your group size (see here for prices and to book)


Lakes Escapes is located in West Cumbria, around 90 miles West of Newcastle. It should take around 2 hours to travel there by car. 

If you fancy a day out by train, fares are very reasonable. Expect a trip from Newcastle to Workington (with a quick change at Carlisle) to cost around £32 return for 2 adults and 2 children with a railcard (example screenshot below). Lakes Escapes is a 3 minute walk from the train station. 

I think it sounds like an ideal festive day trip for 7-12 year olds and is something that doesn't involve a visit from the main man himself. 

If you are looking for somewhere to stay, (ad - affiliate link) Travelodge Workington is two minutes away, offers free parking and there are rooms available from £29.
