FAQs
An escape room is an adventure-type game. It involves you and your team being placed inside a room and having to solve puzzles and perform tasks in order to find your way out.
Most escape rooms (including yours truly) create dramatic backstories and include special effects to liven up the experience.
The concept is that you’re trapped inside the room; however you are not actually locked inside.
If you need a bathroom break, you can leave temporarily and rejoin the game.
However if the team decides to call it quits midway, we may not allow you to pick up from where you left off.
Most escape rooms give you 60 minutes. The Escapement gives you 90.
Whilst we are not wheelchair accessible we will try our best to accommodate any needs..
Some rooms contain smaller spaces, light and smoke effects which can be removed or bypassed with prior notice. We may not be able to modify the missions on the day of your booking.
