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.

    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.
