Face your fears at Madog’s Asylum, the only thing you have to lose is your mind…

Madog’s Asylum is PanIQ Rooms first horror-themed escape room and the first escape room to be located within the vicinity of Porthmadog. The room is a real-life “escape game” that takes you back to 1963 and CRAZY Dr Gwyn Williams locks the team of your choice in his insane asylum. He has set fire to the building in hope of destroying all incriminating evidence of his experimental lobotomy’s and electroshock therapy treatments. Your team has 1 hour to find your way out by using clues, solving puzzles, and searching for keys before time runs out and the fire engulfs the building and your team inside.


Madog’s Asylum is a great opportunity to get out with friends, family, work colleagues, or even a first date! The escape room game forces people to work together and communicate to reach the shared goal to escape. Without the distractions of phones and outside interactions, people really get to know their teammates and discover more about them. People not only find out about the strengths and weaknesses of their teammates but also of their own qualities, you could learn more about a person in an hour of play than in a year of conversation.
