Modrophenia is a classic murder mystery puzzle hunt with a twist! You and your team take on the roles of a gang of Mods in 1964 Brighton who are investigating the murder of one of their friends. Puzzles, riddles and discovery will lead you to uncover more and more of the story, but will you find out what happened in time?
This super cool retro game features some of the finest items the 60s has to offer, including a genuine 1963 Vespa and a working 1964 pinball machine.
Modrophenia has been designed with larger groups in mind and there is plenty to do in the time given so we recommend a minimum team size of four people. But experienced escape room enthusiasts are welcome to take on the challenge in smaller teams, just contact us to open up the booking.

I do love a room that incorporates elements of local history, Comms Room at Escape in the Towers and The Rig at LetsXcape are two others that come to mind.  This one involves the mods and rocker scenes and aims to recreate the 60's.  The puzzles and theming are all on point and never broke the immersion of the room.

As always with Pier Pressure the hosting is impeccable and a intuitive clue system. An intense room with lots to keep you engaged and busy. Great themeing with nice touches such as the pinball machine. We were commended for our performance as a 2 player team and the room was enjoyable.

The first game I haven't escaped but it was a worthy opponent. Set was amazing and unique plus the puzzles were quite fun - except a final anagram puzzle that we couldn't crack 🙁 

Clue delivery is top notch and hosting was great. Plenty of story

A wonderful homage to a part of Brighton culture that I knew little about. Decoration-wise it's impressive and there's a decent story as well. A great option if you're looking plenty of varied challenges.
We take on the roles of a gang of Mods in 1964 to investigate a murder in this unique escape room in Brighton.
Want an escape room that will satisfy your daydreams of being a 60s mod, zipping up and down the Brighton seafront on your Vespa? We did, so we headed to Pier Pressure's Modrophenia room...
