What is Escapism?

Escapism is a Live Escape Room experience. We lock you in one of our themed rooms for 60 minutes and then it’s up to you to find clues and solve puzzles to escape in time.

Our rooms are themed around different stories and experiences. We want to creatively challenge your brain and spark your imagination.

Who can play?

Our escape rooms are designed with all in mind. Your team could be friends, family or work colleagues. It’s a fantastic way to break the ice, to team build, or warm up for a night of celebrations, whether that’s a birthday, a stag, or a hen party.

Can I partake if I am pregnant?

Absolutely you can! Some of our rooms contain loud noises, which can cause a bit of a shock. There is also some crouching required in The Missing and in Forge, however only one player in the group will need to do this.

Is the experience difficult?

The rooms contain puzzles, problem solving and team work, we put all these skills to the test at Escapism in our fun themed rooms. However, our Game Hosts are watching carefully, and are on hand if you ever need a helpful hint.

If you have any queries about larger bookings, our team members will be happy to recommend the best solution for your group.

We are open from 10am - 10pm, 7 days a week. We do close on Christmas Day, and have some restricted hours during the holiday period, but these will be clearly advertised and reflected on our website around this time.

Accessibility and special requirements

Some of our clues require the ability to hear, and when our game hosts send through clues there is an audible alert tone, so we advise that at least one of the group is not hard of hearing. However, if you inform us of any issues prior to your arrival then we can cater for these. The majority of clues and puzzles are visual.

Some of our rooms have flashing lights as part of the game or the video material played throughout, please contact us to enquire which rooms would be more suitable if any of your players suffer from light sensitive epilepsy.

Our venue is wheelchair accessible, and very few of the game aspects require physical movements. However, we do advise that at least one member of each team does not have restricted mobility.

The Missing has been designed to be wheelchair accessible for the most part however, there will be one area of the room that may be inaccessible.

Breadcrumbs has enough room for a wheelchair user however, there will be one area of the room that may be inaccessible.

Forge has enough room for a wheelchair user, however, there will be 2 small areas of the room that may be inaccessible. There are also sections of the room which require at least one person to get quite close to the floor.

Radioactive has been designed to be wheelchair accessible for the most part, however there are puzzles that will require reaching up.

Wrecked has been designed to be wheelchair accessible for the most part, however there will be one area of the room that may be inaccessible, including a puzzle that would need to be reached up for.

What if someone is claustrophobic?

Our rooms are spacious, and all players are monitored on CCTV for any issues. Each room also has an emergency exit button, meaning that players can leave if they wish to do so, and you can always re-enter if your team is still playing.
