Individual sessions can be made easily using our online booking calendar. Multiple, half-day or full day bookings can be made via phone or email. Please see our Book Now page for more information.

Escape The Van FAQ

Answers to some popular questions below...

Who can play this game?

You can play the game socially with your family, friends or colleagues as a fun and exciting team building activity. Children aged 13 or over are permitted to take part with a responsible adult present at all times.

Why should I join in this game?

We offer you an experience different from other classic group activities. You can  test your concentration, observation, problem solving and decision making skills as well as having a great time.!

Are there films or games similar to this activity?

Many computer games feature gameplay in which you progress by finding hidden clues or solving puzzles. TV shows such as Crystal Maze and The Cube, and films such as Saw and Fermat’s Room also cover the same concept. There are also other escape room venues in fixed locations across many towns and cities.

How difficult is the game?

The game is designed to be completed in 60 minutes by players getting stuck in, working together and solving the puzzles. You do not need any special talent other than using your brain and acting fast. This, however, does not necessarily mean that everybody can finish the game. In fact, we currently have a 50% success rate!

Do we have to wear special costumes to play the game?

No. Comfortable clothing and flat footwear is recommended, and no stilletto heels are permitted. During summer the van may be quite warm, whereas in the winter you will probably need a jumper or extra layer for warmth. 

Will it be safe during the game?

Absolutely – your safety is our number one priority. We have taken every effort to ensure the room is designed to be used in a safe manner by everyone. Please note that if, for whatever reason, we feel you may be unfit to take part in the game e.g. due to intoxication, we reserve the right to refuse entry without refund. By booking, you agree to our decision being final on the matter.
