What is room escape?

Room escape is a real-life escape room game where your group has 60-90 minutes (depending on the game you’re playing) to solve different kind of puzzles and the mystery behind the rooms story. Can you and your group solve all the puzzles and get away before the time runs out?

Teamwork is really important in room escape games. By co-operating well with your team you have a better chance to solve the puzzles and escape from the room. In this game your problem solving, communication and teamwork skills are truly tested.

Room escape game is a great break from your everyday life. During the game you won’t be thinking anything else than the problems in the room. The game will get you hooked with the sensation of succeeding and focusing on the story and puzzles.

How to play


    Arrive 15 minutes before the game starts – bigger groups can arrive 20 minutes before the game time. Before the game we’ll go through the rules and instructions with you. Please arrive on time and with your whole team – 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 60-90 minutes (depending on the room you’re playing) to escape. 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 any question in 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.
