How to play


    Arrive at least 15 minutes before the game starts – bigger groups preferably even earlier. Before the game we’ll go through the rules and there’s still time to use the toilet if needed. Please arrive on time – If you are late we unfortunately have to take the time from your game time so next groups can get to their games on time.


    You will enter the room without shoes. All personal belongings will be held outside the game room. We have locked space for your stuff. Rooms provide everything you might need to escape and the game doesn’t require general knowledge.


    In the room you will have 60 minutes to escape. It can be done as a group solving different kind of puzzles and problems. Game doesn’t require physical strength or agility but cleverness and group skills will be tested. You will have your game director monitoring you through cameras during the game and giving you clues to proceed if needed.


    After the game your game director will answer to any question on mind and take a few pictures of your group as a souvenir and for social media if wanted. We also would gladly hear feedback about the experience to continuously improve the game and our actions.
