Outdoor Escape Challenge


This summer gather the family for one of the National Memorial Arboretum’s brand-new outdoor escape challenges, Operation Vault and Operation Kingpin.

The National Memorial Arboretum is home to many memorials to emergency and volunteer organisations. Like all our emergency services, the Police Force works tirelessly to support our nation. They use their powers of deduction and team skills to solve cases and keep our country safe.

Test out your own skills and see if you can crack these two new cases, based on the work of the Police Force, while learning more about some of the Arboretum’s memorials to the emergency services, volunteer and civilian organisations alike.

Operation Kingpin (£12) is recommended for ages 8+, and for those who wish for a harder challenge Operation Vault (£15) is ideal.

Challenge packs are available from the Arboretum’s Welcome Desk. The National Memorial Arboretum are currently asking all visitors to pre-book their visit ahead of arrival. This can be done via their website,


  • Operation Kingpin - £12, Operation Vault - £15
