We LOVE what we do – we hope you do too!
Who We Are:
We were born, bred and still live in Thanet and we wanted to create a new business in Margate to help the seaside town thrive and expand.
As a family who enjoy escaping together we dreamt of taking escape rooms to a whole new level by creating games without padlocks!
The CTRL ALT ESC building in Margate was renovated from a derelict restaurant.
From renovating the building, building the room, writing the storyline, creating the technology and devising the puzzles – we did it all ourselves!
CTRL ALT ESC is a family run business founded in February 2017.
Our dream was to create escape rooms using our knowledge for technology, without the use of padlocks and to only use puzzles that rely on team work, skill and brain power.
Our first escape room – Frankenscape – combines our love for technology, theatrics and design.
This will open in July 2017. We are already working on our next two rooms, watch this space!
Value for Money:
We wanted to make our rooms good value for money so you pay for the room – not the amount of people you bring.
We’ve also increased the length of the game to 90 minutes (where most escape rooms are 60 minutes) you can therefore enjoy more puzzles, fun and surprises.
Thank you for supporting a local, family run business.
