Lifford Old Courthouse offers live tours, escape rooms & lunches daily.

JAILBREAK is the North-West’s first live escape room! Set in real cells beneath the Lifford Old Courthouse, you and your group have been sentenced to death for a crime they didn’t commit and locked in a jail cell.

There are two versions of JAILBREAK available, the classic game and our family-friendly Junior Jailbreak.

JAILBREAK challenges you to escape from our cell in 60 minutes and is suitable for all ages from 12+.

Junior Jailbreak is a cut-down version of JAILBREAK and has a 30-minute time limit to escape.  The game has been adapted to be suitable for kids from 8-12, but still requires plenty of input from the adults of the group also.
With only 30/60 minutes to escape, your group will have to work together to find clues in the room and solve a series of puzzles to save yourselves! Do you have what it takes to make it out alive?

Jailbreak is a unique and enjoyable experience for all kinds of groups, from friends to business team-building. If you are looking for a fun group activity that’s different from anything you’ve done before, then this is the activity for you!





  • How long does it take?

You have 30/60 minutes to escape the room.  We tell groups to allow an extra 30 minutes on top of this for their visit to allow time for briefing before and after the game.  We ask you to please arrive at the time on your booking as we need to be able to maintain social distancing amongst groups.

  • How hard is it? 

You will find a lot of the challenges involve common sense rather than just intellect. Your group will require team-work and brainpower to escape but you do not need any special ‘skills’ to get out of the room and there are no physical challenges.

  • Is it fun? 

Hopefully! The escape room is designed to be entertaining and working against the clock certainly brings out the competitive side of people!

  • What happens if we get stuck on a puzzle?

Don’t worry! There will be a guard on standby with extra clues if you need them!

  • Are you allowed to bring phones inside?

You are allowed your phones in with you but please note that selfies, photos or videos are not allowed while in the escape room so as not to spoil the experience for others. There will however be plenty of opportunity for some photographs at the end with lots of props and signs to let everyone know how well you did!

I’m no good at Math! Will I still be able to play?

Beyond knowing the basic numbers, you will not need any math skills.

  • What should I wear?

You can wear whatever you like in our escape room. We wouldn’t recommend heels and we do suggest as these are genuine 18th-century prison cells and can get a bit chilly that you may want to bring something warm, but anything can be worn.

  • What if I have a bigger group?

If you have a bigger group (more than 6 players) then you can make Jailbreak even more exciting by adding an extra competitive element as we can open up to 4 rooms to allow you all to compete not only against the clock, but against each other.  Please note that we do need prior notice of larger groups.

  • What ages can play?

The game is primarily designed for adults and so we would recommend that only children over 12 play due to the complexity of the puzzles. If there is anyone in the group under 18 then they must be accompanied by someone 18 or over.   For groups with kids under 12, our Junior Jailbreak game is perfect for 8+.
