There is a new craze that has hit London this winter and it’s one that you should definitely take part in: Escape Rooms! The premise is simple: you and your friends are locked in a room; the clock starts counting down and you have to use the clues and materials in front of you to find your way out of the room. Sounds like a pretty simple thing to do, but it’s not! These rooms will challenge your wit, your problem solving, your team work skills and your ability to think under pressure! They make for a fantastic double date, girls night out, or birthday/bachelorette/pre-baby/post-baby-first-night-out/just-get-me-away-from-these-kids night out. You will laugh, you will groan, you will throw your hands up in frustration – but will you escape? Only time will tell!
Escape has four themed rooms to trap and intrigue you. Fall down the rabbit hole, get flipped, get lost, or face the inevitable – it’s going to be hard to get out! The rooms accommodate 2-8 people and have varying levels of difficulty depending on just how clever you think you really are. Work together, keep a clear head, and you just might get out before the timer goes off!
COST: $23.95-$28.95/person depending on group size and day of visit. Birthday players are free!
Book online or by phone. Walk-ins welcome when rooms are available.
Recommended 12+ (under 15yo requires an adult to play along)
Exodus has two room layouts – The Den of Deceit and Gemini I & II – and another room soon to come. So far, no one has made it through the Gemini room on the first try and only one team has made it through the Den. Intrigued? These rooms accommodate 2-8 people (larger groups can be split into two and each do a Gemini room at the same time) and you are given one hour to escape. The time will fly by,so think fast, work together and be the team to get your picture on the wall of fame!
COST: $25/person. If you are celebrating a birthday, the birthday person gets in free!
If you are one of the groups that didn’t make it through the first time and are dying to get it right, you can return for half price to redeem yourself.
Book online or by phone.
