WE ARE OPEN AGAIN TO ADVENTUROUS
AND SAFETY-MINDED ESCAPERS
The Mansion of Mystery escape rooms are open and welcoming new players at Picton Castle.
As social distancing is impossible within the escape room, until the rules change we are open only for groups of family members or close friends who are in a "bubble". The maximum number of players is six.
The latest guidance from the Welsh Government is that as an entertainment venue the absolute maximum number of people that do not all live together who can gather together is four (not including any children aged under 11).
As you would expect we are taking a number of steps to ensure your safety during the visit - see the note at the bottom of this page *.
The Time Machine
The year is 1895. Cornelius Cogworthy has invented a most marvellous machine for travelling through time. Now dastardly foreign spies are after his secrets and, to save them, he has hidden the plans somewhere in the past.Your team's task is to locate the missing blueprintsand make your escape. . . back to the future!
Our Time Machine is a fast-moving adventure in history, time and space for two to six players.
Espionage - Final Selection
The instructors at the Ministry of War's Espionage Academy teach spy craft. Today you will be taking your final exam in all the skills a secret agent needs. However, your tutor may have gone a little too far in testing your talents!
You have just sixty minutes to pass the examination and help save the British Empire from her enemies.
Fail and a rather nastier fate lies in store!
Picton Castle's grounds and gardens are currently open as well as the Welsh Owl Garden. The maze is currently closed but the refurbished boardwalk has just re-opened as well as the adventure playground - all included in the price of your game.
Maria's Restaurant is open with table space indoors as well as a takeaway service during regular opening hours. There are plenty of tables and chairs around the central courtyard area and loads of picnic spots around the grounds.

* CORONAVIRUS PRECAUTIONS
The Mansion of Mystery wants to make your escape room experience as perfect as possible so naturally we take health and safety very seriously – even though we are stepping back through time into the nineteenth century – and will have thoroughly cleaned and sanitised the game areas before your visit. We also thoroughly ventilate the space between games to ensure that the air is fresh for each new group.
Please do not play our escape room game if you or anyone in your group has experienced the symptoms of Covid 19 within the past seven days or have been in contact with anyone who has coronavirus within the past fourteen days. There is no penalty for a cancellation under these circumstances - the safety of our visitors and staff are of paramount importance.
We understand that because you are a group that has been self-isolating it is safe for you to interact together but please ensure that you keep at least six feet away from our Gamesmasters at all times.
We are taking thorough steps to sanitise all areas on the building for your protection but we would ask you to use the hand gel provided before and after you play. Disposable gloves are also provided for you to wear if you wish. New Welsh government regulations order that face masks should be warn in all public spaces such as shops. However, as other members of the public are not given access to the escape room during your visit the use of masks is optional for our customers.
You will find extra bottle of sanitiser inside the escape room for your use. If you need to cough or sneeze please use a tissue and dispose of it safely in the bins provided and again use the gel each time.
Our toilet is available at all times – please use a paper towel or tissue to open and close the door and for touching any hard surfaces inside. And of course, make sure you wash your hands thoroughly.
