Frequently asked questions (FAQ)
1. What is an escape room?
An escape room is a real-life interactive adventure game. A team of players (somewhere between 2-10) is locked in a room and has to search for hidden clues, solve puzzles and find a way to escape within the given time limit. You can check out our article for more details: What is an escape room game?
2. How do I book a game?
World of Escapes is a directory website - we collect information about escape rooms all over the world, but we don't organize the games ourselves. To book a game, you should contact the company you would like to visit directly. Contact information can be found under "Contacts" on the page of each escape room.
You can use the website link to get access to online booking. Some of the games also have a “Book Online” button.
3. What are your opening hours? What is the price?
The answer is different for every company, and we list multiple escape room venues in different cities. We kindly ask you to use the contact information provided on the page of each escape room. Check out the company's website or give them a call to find out more details.
4. Is there an age limit? Are escape rooms suitable for kids?
Every company has their own age recommendations. Generally, under 10 is a little young to participate due to the complexity of the puzzles. However, children have a unique view of the world, and may be great at recognizing patterns or just be a fresh pair of eyes. So we suggest you reach out to the company organizing the game and inquire if you can bring your kids.
Look at the top of each escape room page for specific age recommendations.
5. Is it dangerous? Will I really be locked in a room?
Most companies don’t actually lock you in due to safety reasons. Those that do usually have an emergency exit door that can be accessed at all times.
6. I have a big group of friends/a teambuilding event. Can you accommodate our group?
The maximum number of participants for each room is fixed - it depends on how many people will feel comfortable in the room and have enough puzzles to entertain everyone. Adding one or two players (usually for extra price) may be allowed, but adding more will just subtract from the experience.
If you have a large group, you can choose a location with two or more different themes available and split up into groups to do them at the same time. You can use our map feature to find escape rooms closest to you.
7. How hard is the game?
The difficulty is different for every game and even every team, since everyone has their strengths and weaknesses. We do have a reference system to help you choose a game that’ll likely suit beginners or challenge experience escape artists. Keep an eye out for the difficulty level (represented by keys, from 1 being the easiest and to 4 the hardest). Some games also have a success rate displayed at the top of their page.
