Escape Peterborough - Escape Room FAQs

In our post this week, we’ve gathered together our most popular frequently asked questions so you’ll have answers to your most pressing questions. We hope you find them useful, and if you don’t find the answers to your question in this post, please feel free to give us a call and we’ll always try our best to help you out.

First, what are Escape Games?

Escape Games are all about playing against the clock. You’re locked in a room with between 2 to 6 people. The room will be themed, using ideas from popular culture. There will be carefully hidden clues to find and you need to find and solve them within the hour so you can unlock the room and escape. If you don’t do it within the allotted 60 minutes, you’ve lost.

Is there an age limit?

No there isn’t, anyone can play, but the game can be a little physically and mentally demanding, so anyone younger than 10 might struggle. If you do decide to bring children under the age of 16 we usually suggest that they’re accompanied by adults.

If I’m a little claustrophobic should I stay away?

No, the rooms are probably a lot bigger than you’d think so you won’t be cramped in a corner for 60 minutes. However, if you still feel uncomfortable we can leave the door open for you or unlocked and you can still play the game.

How many people can play?

We usually suggest you have at least 2 so you’ll have someone to help you find the clues, and no more than 6 so you’re not tripping over each other. We usually suggest under the maximum number but more than 2, so there’s a good level of interaction, but not too many of you.

How much time is required?

Well, as you will have probably worked out by now, you’ll need 60 minutes in the room itself to find the clues and unlock the room. However, we usually ask you to come here at least 30 minutes before you’re due to start so we can brief you on health & safety and on what to expect throughout the game. We’d therefore suggest an hour and a half, so if you fit this into your day, you should have more than enough time.
