What is Unblock Against the Clock?

Weighing in at 6 tonnes and measuring 6 metres high, our wacky house of fun is designed to show you Yorkshire’s major pipe blockers, and for you to have the chance to bag yourself some amazing prizes in the process. You’ll see first-hand how everyday items such as nappies, wipes and oils can take their toll on Yorkshire’s pipes in our three exciting fun-rooms.

We’re bringing Unblock Against the Clock to areas with high blockage rates, so come along and join the fun throughout August and help keep Yorkshire blockage-free.

What can you win?

Dive into our challenge this summer and you could win blockbuster prizes.
Everybody who participates is in with the chance of winning with a spin of our prize wheel just for taking on our challenge and helping to keep Yorkshire blockage-free!
The prizes don’t stop there, teams that top their area’s leader board will win an amazing Feather Down glamping trip for escaping our wacky house, topping the table and binning the most blockers.
The team who proves to be Yorkshire’s overall champions will bag themselves our blockbuster prize (as well as bragging rights) and win a brand-new kitchen or bathroom. Have you got what it takes to be our top unblockers?

Gather your team

Assemble 2 or 3 of your best clue-solvers and run wild to see if you’ve got what it takes to beat the clock and keep Yorkshire flowing. It’s open to all ages and is great fun for the whole family.

Take a look around

You’ll have just 5 minutes to frantically solve the clues, bin the blockers and make your way out through the sewer. We’ll have you hunting through kitchen sinks, searching toilet bowls and exploring the sewers against the clock to find and bin as many blockers as you can to be in with a chance to WIN!

Frequently asked questions

Do I need to register?

Is there a dress code?

No, we suggest you come in comfortable clothing to get stuck into the fun.

What is the minimum and maximum team sizes?

We suggest team sizes between 3 and 4. If your teams are bigger why not split into two groups and have a little friendly competition?

What are the opening and closing times?

The fun house will be open for entry from 9am to 5pm on a Saturday and 9am to 4pm on a Sunday.

How physically challenging is it?

Our escape room is fun for the whole family, this means it is not very physically demanding however we recommend you have a general level of fitness before joining in. If you have a pre-existing medical condition, please check with your GP before taking part.

Is your house of fun wheelchair accessible?

Due to maximum site footprint restrictions in designated zones, we’re unable to secure the site permits required to locate a structure suitable enough to accommodate wheelchair access. The events are temporary and classed as ‘pop up’ which means permission is required from Local Authorities.

What can I win?

Everyone gets to spin our prize wheel for the chance to bag yourself either: a signed photo of the Wipesaur; an Unblock Against the Clock t-shirt; shopping vouchers or an iPad. The top teams by town will win a Feather Down glamping holiday and Yorkshire’s overall champion will win either a new kitchen or bathroom.

Can I take photos/videos in the rooms?

We kindly ask you not to take photos or record any videos whilst participating as we would like to keep our wacky house of fun spoiler-free for everyone’s enjoyment. You wouldn’t want to give the competition tips after all!
