1. WHAT IS GREAT ESCAPE?
The Great Escape is a real life, interactive escape game. A live escape experience that expands your imagination, while it challenges your versatility and builds the collaboration spirit of the team. The team (2 to 7 persons), is getting “locked” into a theme room. The team’s goal is to manage to escape in a specific timeframe, overcoming a series of challenges, and solving riddles, that activate the brain and the 5 senses!
2. HOW DIFFICULT IS IT? DO YOU NEED ANY SPECIAL SKILLS TO PARTICIPATE?
In our website, next to each room, you will find the difficulty level. If you are a new player we suggest you to start with a low difficulty room. Nevertheless, each room is designed so that anyone would enjoy it. It won’t be needed for you to have any knowledge of specific subjects, neither prior escape room experience. You will just to have to have creative way of thinking and team spirit!
3. IS THERE AN AGE LIMIT?
Most of our rooms are addressed to escapers of all ages! It is a game of logic and observation, so a young kid could play with the same ease as an elder. Nevertheless, we don’t want to disappoint our younger friends with “unsolvable” obstacles due to the hardness of some riddles, we have set a minimum participation age of 8 years old.
There are some specific rooms, that due to their theme, they are addressed to people over 15 and over 18 years old (you will notice the age indication in those rooms’ pages).
4. CAN A MINOR PARTICIPATE IN THE ROOMS WITH THE 15+ AND 18+ INDICATION, WITH ADULT/PARENTAL CONSENT;

6. CAN WE FORM A TEAM WITH A NUMBER OF PLAYERS GREATER THAN THE INDICATED ONE?
The proposed number of players for each room is defined by the room’s gameplay design and ensures the optimal gaming experience. For certain rooms though, and in special occasions there could be a possibility of allowing more people in a room, than its proposed limit.
