This is a game where a small group of people are locked inside a room and given exactly 60 minutes to work out how to escape. Each of our escape rooms has a particular background story, a design theme (a prison cell, science laboratory etc) and a mission with a distinct set of challenges. Inside every room there are various puzzles, riddles and mind games that the group has to find and figure out to be able to escape the room.
The door opens after 60 minutes you are free to go. Usually, a member of our staff will enter the room and explain about the puzzles, – which ones you were good at solving, where and why you got stuck etc. We are focused on security and every second the group is inside the room, a member of our staff is monitoring on screen and standing by to open or assist.

Escape games are purposely designed to challenge teamwork abilities and critical thinking. Some of the clues and puzzles are fairly obvious and easy to work out. Some clues will help your mission to escape while others are designed to distract, mislead and waste precious time. If your group is completely stuck with something – we will give you a hint or nudge you in the right direction.
