We’re thrilled to announce that a brand-new escape room experience called LevelUp Escapes opened at the Darwin on 10th December 2022.

Eighteen-year-old entrepreneur Nathan Green from Shropshire is the proud founder of Level Up Escapes. He has been obsessed with escape rooms for several years – travelling across the UK with family and friends experiencing every possible escape room available. With a theatre and scenic design background, Nathan set out a goal to create an escape room, which puts guests’ skills and critical thinking to the test, while navigating the scenes of iconic movies.


The venue is located in the middle level opposite M&S inside the Darwin centre and will eventually hold three escape rooms, which will open in phases. The first opened on 10th December and is inspried by Indiana Jones, called Ark Raider. This will be a multi-layered game with hidden twists and unexpected turns. With every clue you solve and every secret you reveal, you peel back another layer of the story to find the Mayan treasure.

Each game will last 60 minutes and cost from £16 – £24 per person, depending on the size of your team. The escape room is suitable for all ages and children fifteen and over can experience the escape room on their own. Bookings for Ark Raider can be purchased now through this link.
