YES! We have various ways in which we deliver experiences for large groups, please call us on 01702 437337 to discuss.
If you escape, you join the elite group of escapees that have managed to beat the game designers at Escape Live and achieved full scale bragging rights! We’ll also ask you if it’s OK to take a celebratory picture at the end of the experience to share with you via our social media pages.
At the end of your experience your Games Master will offer you the opportunity to walk you through the escape. If you prefer to come back another time and beat the room then please let the Games Master know.
As long as your group size does not exceed the limit of the experience you booked then yes, no problem. You can pay for the extra person when you arrive.
You can move / reschedule bookings you have made for a £10 fee, as long as you give 7 days prior notice. Please call us on 01702 437337 and we will arrange this for you. Once you have booked we cannot refund you for cancelling or not showing up for your experience.
Please aim to arrive 10-15 minutes before your booked timeslot. If you arrive to Southend earlier there is plenty to keep you entertained, such as shopping, bars and restaurants not to mention the seafront itself. Arriving later than the booked timeslot may mean that we are not able to allow you to play so please leave plenty of time.
The experience itself is 1 hour long but please allow 1 hour 30 minutes from the time you arrive to when you leave.
Friends, family, corporate team building events, first dates, Stag and Hen events, nights out – anyone who would like to experience something different! Our rooms are fun for all ages but those under 10 may find some elements of the rooms a little difficult. Those under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult (16+). The adult must be a paying member of the group and the group size may not exceed the maximum number as advertised. Under no circumstances are children allowed to be alone in your booked experience.
No! Although some of our theming and advertising may look pretty scary there is nothing to be afraid of inside the game.
No, strictly mental agility! All of our games are designed without any need for strength or brute force.
Although we have taken provisions to ensure we are suitable for all abilities, we are limited in certain aspects. The best thing to do is get in touch and we will let you know if it is suitable.
Please let us know if you are running late – whilst we will make effort for you to play your game, it may be the case that we have another booking directly after yours. In such an instance your game length will be shortened by the amount of time you are late.
Overall a wonderful experience and the best escape room company we have encountered so far. Will definitely be coming back to try some of the other rooms.

This was an absolute blast. Challenging & great fun with well thought out puzzles to solve. The staff were great. Really helpful, friendly & a good laugh.
Great fun! My partner and I had never been to an escape room before and we really enjoyed it. A must for anyone who enjoys puzzles and solving clues.
