What happens during an Escape Room ?

After an initial briefing covering the general rules, a Game Master guides you to the door of your room. Before entering the room, the Game Master sets the scene by reading the story, explaining what awaits the players in the room, and how to get started (this can also be done via a video presentation).

Then, the group of players begins to explore the room, look for clues and solve puzzles to escape in less than 60 minutes.

Who are Escape Rooms meant for ?

Escape Rooms are intended for all people who like to have fun, play as a team and are looking to try out something new. 

Whether you are a group of friends, family or colleagues, there is room for everyone. Escape Rooms are also excellent for team building. Once the door is closed, your group will be united around one goal and working together to trying to get out on time.
