QUESTIONS & ANSWERS.


What is Escape?

Escape is a team game ideally for 2-10 people. We lock your team in the gaol and the goal of the game is to escape within the allotted time. This is achieved by completing a series of challenges which allow you to unlock the next one and eventually obtain the key for the door.

Why Escape?

It is different, challenging and great fun, perfect for friends, family and co-workers. We can provide for small and large groups and are more than happy to listen to individual requests and accommodate them where we can.

Is there an age restriction?

While there is no restriction on age the puzzles may be too demanding for those under 10. Children under 16 must usually be accompanied by an adult. We do recognise that all children are different so please feel free to ask.

I am claustrophobic, can I play?

The rooms are quite large but should you feel more comfortable we could leave the room unlocked.

Is there a minimum or maximum team size?

2 as a minimum and 10 as a maximum.

As this is a ticketed event you may be paired up with other teams.

How much time will we need to play?

Please allow an hour and forty five minutes. This allows us to brief you, give you your allotted time in the room and then speak to you afterwards regarding your experience.

Do you serve alcohol?

No. If you arrive under the influence of alcohol you will not be admitted or refunded. 

Are the games physical?

Physical strength is not required, some objects may need to be moved but no strenuous effort is required.

Unfortunately not.

What should we wear when playing?
