Art Heist

You and your crew plan and carry out a robbery. Distract guards. Avoid cameras. Fool alarms. Dodge lasers. Steal art. But be quick, time’s already running out…

Art Heist is a thrilling escape-room-style adventure, where up to four players at a time try to steal a painting from our purpose-built gallery. Live performers play guards patrolling the space, allowing for unlimited creativity of problem solving.
