The immersive, puzzle-filled experience welcomed its first teams through the doors of 32 St Mary's Street over the weekend.

Josh Whitrod, who Principal Escape Room with his partner Clare Wright, of Littleport, said: "The opening weekend went really well.

"We had 11 teams through the room, including a mix of all ages and experience, but everyone seemed to really enjoy it.

"We have a current room record of 42 minutes, which was set by a family of two adults, a 12-year-old, and a 10-year-old.

"They were incredibly quick, as most teams are really cutting it close."
