The Lift Access Code

For this one, you'll need the employee review and the floor directory on the wall. The lift says that it needs a 4 digit number and the last number is the floor that your employee works on. Val works in finance so we know what the last number in the sequence is.

Now check the employee review. It mentions her employee number being picked because she is at the canteen 3 times a day... check which floor the canteen is on and that number repeated 3 times will give you your remaining 3 digits.

The CEO's Office - Door

it's tough to work this one out. For this, you need the employee report and the map. Take a look at the long lunch break journey described in the report. Follow that journey on the map, every turn Val would take is a command for the directional lock. Travelling straight on doesn't count as a direction, it's just the turns she would take on the roads. (Not turns out of shop fronts)

Getting into the Bar - clock

For this one, you need the security shift patterns and the security guards note. Pay attention to the story line, at the start of this room, you snuck in just after a security guard left... from the note, we know this is Dave. So we know you're currently between the shifts of Dave and Kev. Dave left 10 minutes early and it's taken you 5 minutes to get from the reception to the bar so you know it's now 5 minutes before Kev's shift starts. The format is X:XX.

The Bar - The Safe

For this one, you need the cocktail menu and the coloured dots on the computer. The menu mentions some colours in the ingredients that make up some of the drinks. Those colours, in order, will give you the letters you need to make the 6-letter code!

The letters are all in capitals and there are repeats of colours which means that the same letter repeats in the code!

The Bar - Computer - days takings

For this, you need to combine the amounts on the orders in the safe with the CEO's rule - The money is always on EVEN, never ODD. So you only add up the even numbers here, ignoring the odd. The CEO isn't putting every sale through the books!

The Finance dept door code

This is one of the more difficult puzzles in this escape room, it's also one of the last you need to solve, so you'll need clues from the CEO's office and the Staff Bar first!

You need the tube map (from the external website in a new tab), the poker chips, the list of tube stops, the note about closed stations and the poem to crack this code.

Looking at the map, the poem tells you which direction to travel, so you travel from west to east and from south to north.



The poker chips tell you which colour line to look on and the amount of chips tells you how many stops to travel (including the first, origin station)

The tube list will give you a number for the three tube stops you find.

The note tells you to ignore one of the branches of the Central line to find your answer.

The tube stops you need are Balham, Blackhorse Road and Bond Street.

The seat number on the boarding pass is the seat that you need to look under. Now you just need the letter for the table.
