Real life escape games are the latest craze to hit the country; they have been extremely popular in Japan, China, parts of the USA and Hungary for the last few years and are now increasing in popularity all over Europe. Escape rooms are a type of skill-based and mental adventure game in which people are “locked” in a room with friends, family or colleagues and have to use elements of the room to solve a series of puzzles, find clues, and escape the room within a set time limit. Think of a mixture between “The Crystal Maze” without Richard O’Brien or Ed Tudor-Pole and “Treasure Hunt” without Anneka Rice and a helicopter.
This is a real life situation where you will learn about yourself and others in your team and have lots of fun which you will talk about for far longer than the game time itself. The game lasts for approximately 60 minutes where you will piece together information to unveil clues to aid your escape. Some puzzles are easy, whilst others will have you thinking. No special skills are required to attempt to escape.
Make sure you leave time for parking and making your way to our 3rd floor rooms. We recommend that you arrive 10 minutes early to give you time to settle in.
You will be able to contact us during your hour in the locked room and you will be able to ask for clues to aid your escape. We will only give you the clues if we think you really need them. The target is to escape with as few clues as possible. We have had one group escape with no clues; the average is 8.
