Kanyu Escape Games
The Secrets of South Lodge is Yorkshire’s latest and, in our eyes, best escape rooms and team building centre. Our custom-built rooms are located in a Grade II listed Georgian gatehouse in the most unusual setting: a roundabout at Junction 45 of the A1(M), just south of Wetherby! We’re right in the middle of a Leeds, Harrogate and York triangle and easily accessible just off the A1 (literally)! We attract visitors from across Yorkshire and the UK! Whether you’re an escape room novice or an escape room veteran, our escape rooms will present a challenge you won’t forget!
Why play escape games?
Escape games have become more and more popular since the turn of the decade and when the opportunity to create our very own at South Lodge arose, we knew it was meant to be. We have used the best in the business to help bring together our vision and allow us to provide a 5* experience. We have 2 escape games currently and we’re going to be launching a third room soon! Based around the travels of Sir Henry Cunningham, you’ll be uncovering the secrets that he discovered.
You’ll need to take care as danger awaits!

I visited this newly opened escape room recently with my family and we had an absolute blast! The building alone is a great setting which really sets the mood, and the rooms themselves are designed superbly. They are extremely well crafted and look fantastic, and the well thought out narrative really helps you to become totally lost in the experience. This was my first time at an escape room, so I was a little nervous of the pressurised environment, but I needn’t have been as we all had so much fun! The puzzles were certainly challenging – being first timers we needed a lot of clues, but the sense of satisfaction when we worked well together and escaped was brilliant! I have suggested it to my work as it is such an interesting team building exercise. I can’t wait to visit again with my friends and I eagerly await the opening of the next room!

Won this experience through a facebook competition. Went as a group of 6 not knowing what to expect as not our thing really. When we first arrived Bob our host so helpful and friendly, he explained everything perfectly and was encouraging throughout.
The whole experience was soooo good, we never stopped laughing. The rooms are very interactive and the puzzles challenging but what a great feeling when you solved them (even if we needed help)
Whether your with friends for a bit of fun or team building with work colleagues I would 100% recommend.

I absolutely loved this, and have put a fuller review on TripAdvisor. Not having experienced an Escape Room before, I understand from other reviewers that this is top-notch quality. The design (both in terms of puzzle and the look and feel of the place) is exemplary. We had a wonderful hour, working our way through the room, with the occasional nudge when we were stuck or wrong. The puzzles were difficult enough to cause much head-scratching but not so hard that they were impossible. If you are thinking that this might be fun but not quite sure (which is what I was thinking) take a leap – book it. You won’t be disappointed.

We visited the Secrets of South Lodge recently with some friends, right from the minuet we met Bob to the moment we left was an absolute joy. The room we went in was “Follow in my footsteps” it was well thought out and without some input from Bob I doubt we would have made it out. Going back in late March to do the Laboratory room, can’t wait.
Highly recommend this adventure.

Wow! Loved it!
The Secrets of South Lodge was my first experience of an escape room and I must say it was one of the best experiences ever. Myself and my husband attended with a couple of friends yesterday and had a blast! We’re already planning our return to have a go at the second room.
I would thoroughly recommend that you pay them a visit, but watch out, it’s addictive!

We just completed the first room with less than 5 mins to spare. Absolutely loved it, such a fun game and quite tricky but clues helped us along. This really got us working together as a team to solve and we all had a great time doing it. The props and rooms are very realistic and you can tell a lot of thought has gone into it.
We will be recommending to friends and going back to try solve the next room!
Thanks for having us!
