Escape Newcastle: FAQ's

Welcome to the wonderful world of escape. Escape games are becoming more and more popular due to their ability to turn a boring and tedious afternoon into one of intrigue, fun and excitement. You and a group of friends are locked in a room for a period of 60 minutes where you try to break free by solving some cryptic clues and puzzles, which you may or may not get right the first-time round.

We know that before you visit us for first time here at Escape Newcastle, you may have questions, and that’s okay, because escape games are a whole new experience. So, read our FAQs and hopefully you’ll have all the answers you need before you come and see us.

While your friends and colleagues will be spending their time locked into console games and mobile phone apps, you have the opportunity to play a game in the physical world with real people.

What Are Escape Games?

Escape games are puzzles where you must interact with your team mates in order to escape within the hour you’re locked in. All the rooms come with different themes and there will be a mystery to solve within a particular time limit.

You’ll navigate your way through different parts of the room and wrestle mentally with different puzzles, so you can unlock the secrets which lead to your escape. You’ll need plenty of stamina and quick thinking to get out, but if it’s fun you’re after then the escape rooms are definitely for you.

What Are The Age Limits?

There are no age limits for our escape games, the only thing we ask is that anyone under 16 is always accompanied by an adult. However, you may find that some of the puzzles are a little challenging for those under the age of 10, but you can certainly bring them along.

I’m Not Good With Enclosed Spaces, So Should I Not Play?

There’s no reason why you can’t play in the escape rooms with your fellow team mates, you’re never really locked in and you can have an emergency key with you in the room in case you need to get out quickly. We can also leave the door open too if this is required.

Is There a Dress Code?

No, there’s no dress code, but it is advised that you dress comfortably and that you can move around with ease.

How Many Should There Be In Any One Team?

We would recommend 3 – 5 in each team with 6 as the maximum. This should give everyone the opportunity to participate as opposed to a larger team where some may not get as much opportunity to take part.

How Much Time Are We Allotted?

You’ll have around an hour and a half which will include the time we give to brief you, and for you to talk to us later about your experience.

Can We Use Escape Games For Team Building Exercises?

Yes, please do, we hire our rooms out to corporate teams all the time because they’re so good for team building and helping new team members bed in within a new project.
