Get your escape room questions answered here. We’ve rundown some of the most common questions about escape rooms and Stuck In The Riddle. See why escape rooms are loved around the world and learn all you need to know to make the most of your escape room experience here at Yorkshire’s premiere venue for puzzle escape games.
What happens in an escape room?
You are locked in a room and have to solve a series of puzzles and challenges to escape in the 60 minute time limit! You will have to work as a team in this exciting race against the clock to stand a chance of escaping in time!
Are the games private?
Yes. Once you make a booking that time slot will be blocked out so no other groups are able to book, and it will just be your team in the room.
Is this a good corporate team building exercise?
Absolutely! One of the best things about escape rooms is that team building is essential to make sure you and your team are able to get out in time, it’s also accessible to people of all ages.
Who normally plays these games?
We don’t think there is a “typical” escape room player; it’s for people from all walks of life, from family day’s out and date nights, to corporate team building events and stag/hen dos.
Are there any age restrictions?
We technically don’t have any age restrictions, but due to the level of complexity of the puzzles, we usually recommend the games are suitable for 14 years old and above.
Do you sell gift vouchers?
Absolutely! We are able to sell gift vouchers for either a set value, or for a certain number of players – please email [email protected] for more information or to organise purchasing a gift voucher.
I’m scared of the dark and the unknown, will I be ok?
Definitely! There’s always light in all the rooms, and may be some confined spaces, but you’ll never be trapped or be forced to do anything you aren’t comfortable with; above everything else, we always want you to have fun.
Are there actors, or does anyone jump out at you?
None of our rooms currently feature actors, so you won’t have any sudden suprises!
I am pregnant, can I still play?
Of course you can! Although there are some slightly physical challenges, as long as you have a least one fit and able person in the group you’ll still be able to take part in the full experience. Please note, in The Dungeon there is an element of crawling that is required for all players.
What do I wear?
All our rooms are specially designed and are clean and tidy (at the beginning!) so we recommend wearing comfortable clothes, and sensible footwear – the rooms are sometimes dimly lit, with objects on the floors at times, so we recommend against high heels!
What time should I arrive?
We ask all players to get to site 15 minutes before your time slot to make sure we have enough time to give a full briefing and explain how everything works. If you are late, it may mean you don’t have the full 60 minutes in the room.
Are there toilets onsite?
Yes, we have toilets…
What happens if I want to cancel?
We run a live game event, so unfortunately don’t offer cancellations, however, we can sometimes accommodate rescheduling your booking if advised at least 7 days before the date of your booking.
