An escape room or locked room puzzle is a real-world, physical game featuring challenges, riddles, and mysteries to solve within a time limit. Work as a team to break out of our themed escape rooms, which are brought to incredible life with immersive set design, special effects, sound design, and carefully selected props-many of which we have designed and built ourselves.
UK Escape Games is a race against the clock, to work out the answers to fiendish riddles and gather clues from your environment before the room claims you for its own. All of our escape rooms have a time limit of one hour. If you’re not out by then, we’ll send our minions in to rescue you! Emergency access for any reason is available. Please make your games host aware whilst inside the game!
There is no entry to those under the age of 5 years at UK Escape Games. Some rooms feature darkness and/or loud noises as well as potential scares, however speak to your games host and they will help accordingly. Children aged 15 and under will need a participating adult aged 18 or over as part of their team entering the games. Children aged 16 – 17 are permitted to enter the games unaccompanied, however a responsible adult (18+) must remain in the UK Escape Games building for the duration of their visit.
