Who can play this live escape game

The Real Escape is a fun, safe but challenging exit game that requires co-operation, lateral thinking and plenty of brainpower!

The game does not contain adult themes and is not frightening in any way but because of the challenging nature of the puzzles we recommend that players are aged 14 or over.

At least half of the team must be adult aged 18 or over.

The game takes around an hour to complete and we recommend taking in part in groups of between three to six people.

The Real Escape is a great way to bond with friends and family – and to test how well you get along!

You’ll find out new things about people you’ve known for years and see how easy or hard it is for you to work together.

Concentrate, combine forces and think your way out of the escape room.
