The new escape room opening in the Guildbourne Centre

Set in Worthing in the 1860s, teams will have 60 minutes to uncover 'smuggling, corruption and a secret that should have stayed buried'.

On its website, the escape room team said: "Our room is based upon the local history of Worthing and it's dark era of smuggling. Whilst being fun and immersive, you may also learn a thing or two about this quiet seaside town."

A pastime that has grown in popularity in recent years, escape rooms see teams complete puzzles in a set time to win the game.

The Mindworks team said that what would make this escape room different was that there will be multiple endings.

It said: "Your team will be faced with a choice during your game, which will affect the ending you experience. Both endings come with unique puzzles and different conclusions to the story, so pick wisely."
