Helping companies to escape and build their teams

(L-R) Simon Milnes and Jake Berry MP

Lucardo Rawtenstall is a fantastic escape room experience for both individuals (over 10 years of age) and teams from two to six, ultimately testing their ability to work together to solve clues and escape, before the time runs out.

Established only nine months ago, Lucardo Rawtenstall is the first franchise from the well-known Manchester venue and is already a success, with over 1,100 teams trying to escape, involving over 4,500 participants.

The venue is now starting to attract company teams, who see it as a great way to team build, bond and share the experience of working together under time pressure, to find a solution. An experience very recognisable in the business world.

At their well-equipped Rawtenstall base, you can choose from three games:

  • University of Magic: Dragon’s Heart– this is currently the most popular one
  • Corruption– a murder mystery focus
  • Gem Runner– a bank heist mystery

Co-Owner, Simon Milnes said: “We are really pleased with the response to date, since we have welcomed teams from not only the UK, but also Europe and beyond. We are one of Lancashire’s developing entertainment assets and part of the Invest in Rossendale’s ‘Adrenaline Valley’ concept.

“Our thrilling experience is now being utilised by companies. Working in partnership with nearby restaurant, The Firepit, we are now offering team building exercises, which are different, memorable and fun, complemented by a dedicated room in the restaurant to undertake pre-briefing, outline key messages and receive post event feedback. Companies which have already gained the benefit, include Key Fleet, Avon Electronics and Cube HR.”

Lisa Sourbutts, MD, Cube HR enthused: “Brilliant team outing! Look no further than these guys.”

Open every day, but interested parties need to book, since each game takes approximately 90 minutes. Corporate teams particularly welcome from Mondays to Thursdays.

The venue was recently visited by local MP and Northern Powerhouse Minister, Jake Berry MP, who really enjoyed the experience and commented: “It was a pleasure to meet you and it is so encouraging to see a new rapidly growing company thriving locally on my doorstep, with customers from all over the world.”
