We chose the Shanghaied room and it was awesome. Our first time in an escape room and we’ll be back! Our youngest was only 9 so it was a bit beyond her but the 12 yr old and 14 yr old did great! It was quite a challenge as it was the first time and we did receive a bit of help from Jimmy....just enough to get us through and he made it a great experience for all of us!Ingrid H
The only negative we could come up with is that there isn’t a single sign on any door of the building indicating where Escapology was located in the building. A sign would alleviate any confusion! Thanks again for a really fun and unusual day!
Description:Hong Kong, December 26, 1848.
You have been relaxing in Hong Kong harbor celebrating Christmas and a friendly man has befriended you and started to buy you drinks. That is the last thing you remember that night.
The next day you wake aboard the huge 3-masted 800-ton Chinese ship called the Keying that has set sail on the arduous and risk filled journey to the United States and Britain around the perilous Cape Horn.
You quickly realize that you have been fooled by the King of the Crimps, Joseph "Bunko" Kelly and forcefully drafted to work with the ships company of 12 British and 30 Cantonese sailors.
Ahead lies months, if not years, of dangerous, unhealthy, unsanitary conditions with little hope of pay. After weeks on the open sea, an impending storm drives the ship to seek refuge on a small island known to the locals as Samui.
While in the ship’s mess hall, you start to hear a familiar sea song: “Way ay up she rises, way ay up she rises, way ay up she rises early in the morning.” The crew is starting to prepare the ship to set sail!
Looking around the room, you make eye contact with a few of your shipmates, everyone quickly realizes, now is your only chance to escape! The Keying will set sail again in an hour as the tide waits for no man.
Your Captain, Charles Alfred Kellett, is no fool and it will not be easy to escape for he has rigged many obstacles.
The risks are high. If caught, you face a lifetime of punishment or worse, you could be hanged! The next 60 minutes will change your life forever.
You and your shipmates, must solve the clues, answer the riddles, find the hidden map, and get off the ship. Leave no stone unturned and above all, don’t forget to watch the clock for time is of the essence! Do you have what it takes to escape the clutches of Captain Kellett?
