Frequently Asked Questions

What is Escape Plan?

  • Escape Plan is a team game for small/medium sized groups. Your objective is to escape a locked room or achieve a mission within the specified time limit (60-70 minutes). You do this as a team, by discovering clues, solving puzzles and working collaboratively.
  • We have created three experiences – ‘The Adventure Begins’ set in a WW2 POW camp; ‘The Battle for Britain’ set in an RAF Operations Room, and ‘Roll out the Barrel’ set in a 1940’s RAF base with a sneaky mission to steal a barrel of beer.
  • If for any reason you need to leave you are free to do so at anytime.
  • To check game availability, please visit our bookings page.
  • The puzzles may be mechanical, involve skill or deduction, but you are not required to use physical strength.

How many people can play?

  • Each experience is different.
    • Battle for Britain hosts 2-7 players. (We think 4-5 is the optimum).
    • The Adventure Begins hosts 2-6 players. (We think 4 is the optimum).
    • Roll out the Barrel hosts 2-5 players (We think 3-4 is the optimum).
    • Pushed for Time hosts 3-6 players (Option for 2 players is midweek only)
  • Concurrently we can host up to 24 players at one time in one venue. Our Large Groups page details more

It is not possible to exceed the capacity limits above as we are bound by fire safety guidelines.

Is there an age restriction?

  • The experience has been designed for teens and upwards but we accept bookings (where an adult is present) for anyone aged 9 and over. The games work exceptionally well as a family experience.
