Brand new leisure concept to launch in Selby Town Centre
A new entertainment and leisure concept branded as “The Escapologist”
is set to be launched in Selby this summer.
Matrix Parks Ltd are opening their first venture in a new
business model which combines a stylish bar, restaurant and conference rooms
with the latest trend in escape room entertainment.
The business will open in one of the recently completed units
on New Lane in Selby alongside the Market Cross development, just opposite
The escape room’s side of the business is made up of cleverly
planned games in which participants have a limited amount of time to work out
puzzles to escape the room.
The themed rooms include “World of Wizardry” based on Harry
Potter and “Anarchy of the Seas” which will be a pirate theme.
The “Steam Punk” theme bar and restaurant element of the
experience will focus on a menu of sharing platters and creative cocktails.
Plans are also in place to provide private room hire for any
occasion including parties or corporate functions.
The Escapologist will also provide a team building experience
for businesses and schools, birthday parties and other occasions as well as
being a place to meet up in a fun and creative setting.
The new business venture is creating 20 new jobs in the town.
The bar and restaurant area will be located on the ground
floor and covers 860 sq. ft. and the escape rooms and conference room will be
on the first floor which covers 1, 925 sq. ft.
Matrix Parks Ltd is run by husband and wife Ellie McClaren,
28, and Olly McClaren, 34 and Ellie’s sister Nicola Mooney who is 32.

concept in the wonderful town of Selby.
