Avid explorer and archaeologist Ernest P. Sanderson has made the discovery of his life, uncovering 3 hidden tombs, each full of enough treasure to make him rich beyond measure. Before he reaps his reward, he discovers a map containing the location of a fourth secret tomb that was thought to only exist in myths. Ernest drops everything to hunt down this fourth tomb and discover what mysteries it contained. Unfortunately, this was the last anyone ever heard from him. This was 50 years ago.

Now the map has come into your possession – can you track down the long-lost tomb, and unearth its mysteries?

Our Tomb Room is harder than Remy’s Room. We recommend playing Remy’s Room before you try to escape The Tomb.

Our newest game unfortunately, will not be suitable for all guests. There is an element of dark confined spaces within this room, and may involve crawling so we do not recommend this to pregnant women, people who suffer from claustrophobia or anyone over the height of 6 foot (although if you don’t mind a tight squeeze then be our guest!).

Playing this back to back with Remy's Room was an interesting contrast, I enjoyed this one more, there were some clever physical puzzles and a reveal I'd not seen before but it still suffered from some of the same problems as Remy's.  An interesting curio from the first age of escape rooms.

Writing this review after escaping from The Tomb in January 2018. The Tomb was SO effective! I can't say too much to not give anything away but it REALLY felt like we were in a tomb. I think this room... can... easily be my favourite room in Liverpool! (And I've already done 14 others in Liverpool so...) A bit of a shame that they refused to reimburse/voucher the money for the two people who couldn't join... That made the game quite expensive but we still had a great time.

The second room at Clue Finders is Egyptian themed, and has you in search of a secret tomb. I was a little cast down to find that we'd entered a room decorated as a study rather than anything more ancient in appearance, but the game has secrets to uncover. Our host described it as a more physical game, and that was entirely true: be prepared for plenty of movement, some narrow spaces, and a decent chunk of content based around physical manipulation or skill.
Be warned also that it's pretty diml...
An enjoyable room that never really got me excited. The decor was a bit bare and while there were a couple of things to keep the attention of the enthusiasts, it never really felt like it flowed.
