QUESTIONS & ANSWERS.


What is Escape?

Escape is a team game ideally for 2-5 people. We lock your team in a room and the goal of the game is to escape within 60 minutes. 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 6 as a maximum, however we would recommend teams of 3-5 as these are the optimum numbers for the games and allow everyone to participate.

How much time will we need to play?

The game will take an hour maximum, but please arrive 5 minutes before your booking time. This allows us to brief you, and then speak to you afterwards regarding your experience.

Is Escape accessible?

Grainger Street is not wheelchair accessible as we are above two flights of stairs.

The Gate is mostly accessible but some rooms require a bit of crawling to be done. This can be bypassed for convenience.

I would like to play with my colleagues as a team building exercise. Is it possible?

Yes, please book the games as normal but feel free to get in touch if you need anything else.
