An escape room in Great Yarmouth is planning to expand only one year after opening. 

Great Yarmouth Escape Rooms opened in July last year inside the former E.ON Scroby Sands Offshore Wind Farm Visitor Centre on the promenade north of the Britannia Pier.

Since then, the attraction has seen more than 3,500 people come through its doors.

Company director Gavin Dean said: "When we opened last summer we hit the ground running with many local residents eager to get through the doors, along with this we had an excellent summer for tourists.

"We had expected a lull in the winter months but we soon noticed we were one of few attractions open all year."

Mr Dean said that many hotels have groups and couples looking for something to do and they go to the escape rooms.

"It just shows if the town can boost its out of season offerings, then alongside its great range of hotels there is a market out there," he said.

The business is now planning to add more rooms, with any decision depending on whether they can find the right venue.

Among the ideas being discussed by the team are axe throwing and an electric shuffle board.

The business was nominated for Best New Escape Room in the UK and currently offers two games: Wizards and The Potion Master and Conjured - Spirits and Demons.

The team worked with attraction designers in Dubai, prop builders in Europe, and used installers from the UK.

Mr Dean said: "We invested heavily in making sure we brought the best and most up to date rooms to Great Yarmouth, we worked closely with expert prop builders and carefully planned our rooms' immersiveness which has paid off."
