What’s so great about it?

This type of game is popular with students, friends, corporate teams and those out to celebrate big occasions. It’s a great way of getting people together so they can get to know each other, bond, connect and have fun.

How old do you have to be? 

There are no age restrictions because it’s for everyone. However, we exercise a little caution if there’s someone younger than 10 as it can be quite demanding at times. Naturally, if you bring children under 16, we ask that they’re accompanied by adults. 

I suffer with claustrophobia so should I still come? 

The rooms are a lot bigger than you’d imagine, but if you’re worried about it then we can always leave them unlocked, you’ll still have a fantastic time. 

What is the maximum/minimum team size?

We suggest that in order to enjoy the game more, that there two members as a minimum, and 6 as a maximum total, so you’re not on top of each other.

What are Escape Rooms?

Escape games are rooms where teams of friends or family are locked in for 60 minutes.

In that time, they must find their way out by solving a series of clues and puzzles, if you don’t solve them all in time, you don’t win the game. Of course, we do let you escape the room at the end of the hour, we don’t let you stay there indefinitely! 

Our rooms are usually themed, yes, that’s each one.

It can be any number of different subjects based on popular cultural themes, anything really from Sherlock Holmes to Harry Potter. It really helps you to get in the mood and enjoy the game all the better. You can dress up yourself too if that helps you to get into the zone, or just come as you are. We really don’t mind!

Although you have only one hour to get out, if you don’t manage it you can always try again. However, if you find that during the hour you feel like leaving the room, then by all means go, we won’t force you to stay and you can leave at any time. 

The fun of the game of course is not only in escaping the room but of beating the clock.

Do you have what it takes to get out before the hour is up? It does take some serious team work and by working together to solve the clues, you have a far better chance of getting out.
