Marvo Mysteries

Frequently Asked Questions

Behind the door at Marvo Mysteries Escape Room Bournemouth you will find a mysterious world, magical secrets and rooms full of puzzles. We will take you on an adventure to remember! Or maybe one you will never forget. Teams of 3-8 players must search for clues, solve the mystery, recover the Artifact and try to escape, all before time runs out.

We have one experience currently running: M.A.R.V.O Induction. We have two copies of the game so larger groups can split into teams and play the same game at the same time.
The experience lasts for around 80 minutes - approximately 60 minutes in the game plus a briefing beforehand and photo opportunity at the end. Briefing will begin promptly at the scheduled start time so please don't be late!
You enter the world of M.A.R.V.O as Volunteers looking to recover a Mysterious Artifact. But all is not what it seems. Old myths and legends give a glimpse into another world, a mirror world, a wonderland filled with powerful Artifacts, has someone found a way to travel between them? Visit the M.A.R.V.O page for more information.
That would be telling, but trust me when I say that it is a thrilling and unique experience. Unlike a lot of Escape Rooms, the experience has a strong narrative that unfolds as you play and is influenced by your actions, so you need to make the right decisions at the right time.

Please note the experience may or may not contain (we don't want to give too many spoilers!):
Smoke effects; Flashing lights; Strong magnets; Loud noises; Simulated emergency; Lasers; Confined spaces!

Please let us know if any of your party may have issues with any of these or other medical conditions, if in any doubt please contact us before you book.
