What are Escape Rooms?

If you’re wondering what all the talk is about when it comes to escape rooms and you’re eager to know more, you’ve come to the right place. Today’s post is all about what escape rooms are, and why you should be adding them to your list of things to do and places to visit. If you enjoy challenging games with problem-solving as a running theme, puzzles, clues and playing against time, and perhaps even, you’ve played these types of games at home in the form of board games, then you’re going to love this.

What to expect.

Escape Rooms are moderately sized rooms accommodating between two to six players that are usually furnished with props and furnishings that come with a theme. There will be clues and puzzles hidden within the room which you will need to search high and low for. These clues will be carefully hidden from the top to the bottom of the room, and you will need a team with problem solving skills, who can think analytically, think on their feet and who are all great communicators. Without these skills you will really find it hard to escape in time. Oh, and you have around 60 minutes to crack all the clues and puzzles and unlock the room.

Can’t get out within the hour?

Don’t worry about not being out of the room in time, it’s okay to fail because a lot of our customers do, and they just come back and try again. We’re always encouraging our customers to come back, even if they do get out in time, because it’s all about the fun, excitement and intrigue this game inspires that makes you want to come back and try again. 


As we mentioned the rooms are themed, and each one will be an idea from popular culture which has gained traction over the years. It could be something to do with science fiction, Harry Potter, contagion, horror, magic and many other topics. All the themed rooms will be authentically filled with all the furnishings that make it look very much like you’re on a film set. It’s created that way, so you get the most authentic experience possible.
