What’s an Escape Room?

Essentially an escape room is a series of puzzles that need to be solved to reach the ultimate goal of escaping. And the better thought out the escape room, the more engaging and challenging it is. And, this is especially important when it comes to development and thinking for children.

Challenging The Way They Think.

By challenging ‘the way they think’, you encourage them to explore different solutions, and a great escape room will have challenges and puzzles that require other challenges to be completed to reach the next stage as well as different solutions to the same problem.

Brain Training Research in Children.

Research into brain training for children carried out by Ross Alloway and Dr Tracy Alloway from Edinburgh and Stirling University has shown that children who regularly partake in brain training significantly improve their grades over time.

So, why an escape room you may ask?

The answer is that they find it fun. It is something they can do with their friends or fellow pupils as well as experience the adrenaline rush of trying to overcome all the challenges and puzzles in a race against the clock. There is also a sense of achievement they collectively share when completing their goals towards their ultimate escape.

See what our customers thought of it!

A brilliant way to spend lockdown with mates. I've always been a fan of escape rooms, so this was a very novel way to experience one. Good clues, a fun theme and a humorous "trooper' made this really enjoyable. The future of entertainment? - Zak


We had our own voice-controlled soldier! What a way to spend some time with friends during lockdown - it was fun directing our "trooper" remotely, and as a team.

Probably at least as fun as getting to the venue and taking the challenge in person. It even ended in a live jump off the building via video. Thanks to the team for setting up this innovation! - Julian


What a great Escape! Our team had a mix of first timers and more experienced players from the UK and Ireland. The playing instructions were easy for everyone to follow and it didn’t take long before we were in full flow on the mission at hand. Our designated Avatar facilitated and supported endless demands, moments of confusion, triumph, and dead ends; They became an extended part of our team, willing us on and celebrating our escape within the allotted 60 minutes! The absolute cherry on the cake was the unexpected virtual jump from the top of Twinwoods Adventure - Incredible! Buzzing and high, the laptop lid closed, and it was back to the reality of our front rooms but wearing a grin from ear to ear - The escape was real. - Libby


I was a bit sceptical about doing this as I thought it could get confusing, but once we were set up on Zoom, the host made everything clear and it turned out to be a breeze and a good laugh. Good escape from the daily boredom at the moment and would be fun to do anyway! - Tobias 


I was incredibly surprised at exactly how involving it was. It did draw you into an experience in a way other forms of entertainment are unable to. The reference materials and the fact clues came up in your inventory immediately worked very well too. - Rob

The Morse Code online escape room was incredibly good fun. Working over Zoom with your in-person 'avatar,' who was easy to direct, allowed you to view the room like you were there. Clues appeared immediately in the Google Drive for you to inspect closely and they presented us with a stiff challenge. There were a number of red herrings that kept us guessing! This experience could be done with a family around one monitor or hooked up to the TV, or with lockdown meaning relatives are distant, a fun way to catch up with them. - Adam
