Each room requires a minimum of 2 players and a maximum of 8 players.
How many players can we have?
Is there an age restriction?
Players must be 10 years old or over. Each group must be accompanied by an adult (over 18) – however, in some circumstances we can allow the chaperone to supervise the group from CCTV with our staff. (This request be mentioned at time of booking – please email email@example.com or call 030303 000 00)
Are we locked inside?
Whilst we want to make the entire experience as realistic as possible we will not lock the door so should there be an emergency, you will be able to leave safely and quickly.
How long does it take to play?
You will have a maximum of 90 minutes to escape the room. Can you beat the clock and make our leader board?
Will we be sharing the room with other groups?
No. The room will be exclusive to your group for your 90 minute challenge.
When should we arrive?
Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your allocated time slot. This allows you time to be briefed about the game and to store your belongings safely.
How much does it cost?
Our rooms are charged at a flat rate of £70 for 90 minutes.
Can we use mobile phones inside the room?
No, all mobiles and any photography equipment is strictly to be left outside the rooms. This is so we can keep our rooms top secret for future player. Lockers are located on site for you to securely store your items.
What should I wear?
We suggest dressing casually as there will be many different tasks to complete inside the room. However we are more than happy for you to wear fancy dress!
Can we book to play on the day?
We strongly recommend booking in advance as our rooms book up quickly. However, should we have a space for you, we are more than happy to accommodate you in but payment must be made online.
Is it scary?
As our rooms are themed we have tried to keep everything realistic to that theme. Although we do not class the rooms as scary we do use sound and lighting effects for some elements to give a full, realistic, 4D experience. We currently do not have actors in our rooms.
Do you have a gift shop?
We have a small gift shop where you an purchase memorabilia and tokens of your escape! Purchases can be made in cash, PayPal or Credit/debit card.
Do you have disabled access?
Whilst we have made every effort to make our building accessible, we regret that our rooms are not able to accommodate wheelchair users. There are stairs to some of our rooms and we ask you to take due care when moving around our building as there may be uneven surfaces.
Do you offer food and drink?
We have a small selection of cold drinks and snack available to purchase. We do recommend the many surrounding businesses in Margate for meals and hot/alcoholic beverages. Alternatively we are happy for you to bring your own food onto site to consume in the waiting area or can suggest picnic areas nearby.
What payment methods do you support?
We accept all major Credit and Debit Cards and Paypal. Cash is only accepted in the gift shop.
