What is an Escape Room?

deciphering information, uncovering required items and problem solving.

A lot of our players come dressed as pirates but feel free to come dressed how you like.
Why Pirate Escape?
Pirate Escape is a truly unique and fully immersive experience that requires you to work as a team with your group to escape. It is ideal for
friends, family and colleagues.

What is the minimum/maximum team size for each game room?
Ideally teams of 2 to 6 people.
If your group is larger than the game maximum, we recomend booking more than one room, you can even play multiple games head to head and race for the best time.
Is there an age restriction?
We have no upper limit however the games are designed for adults so children under 16
must be accompanied by an adult.
The games work well for younger children when playing as part of a group with adults or older children however we would not suggest bringing a group of children under 12 as the
puzzles are challenging and it is unlikely they will be able to complete the game.

large, the smallest being the size of an average bedroom.
