Common Escape Room Questions - Lakes Escapes FAQ



What is an Escape Room?

An escape room is where we put your team in a themed room and you must try and escape by solving puzzles and challenges. You will have 60 minutes to complete the mission. Each game is ideally for 2-6 people however Casino Heist can accommodate up to 8 players.

Do you organise corporate team building and private events?

Yes! Our escape room experiences are perfect for team building exercises and group fun.

Who can experience the escape room?

The escape room experience is for people of all backgrounds and genders who love puzzles and interactive challenges. Please note that children under the age of 16 will need to be accompanied in the game by an adult.

What are your opening hours?

We are open from 10.00am to 10.00pm, Mondays to Sundays. Booking in advance is required. If its less than 2 hours before the game please call us to check availability.

What do I need to bring and what should I wear?

There is nothing you need to bring. Everything you need will be supplied. We would recommend you to wear comfortable clothes and shoes you can move around in.

When should I arrive and where is it?

We recommend teams to arrive at the time they booked ready for your briefing and introduction.

How much would it cost and how can I book the tickets?

Our prices will vary per person depending on the size of the group. The more players in a booking, the cheaper it is! Bookings can be reserved through our online booking system and will require a minimum group of 2 people to a maximum of 8 people for selected rooms.

I am claustrophobic; can I play?

All our games have good size rooms with a reasonable ceiling height. Players are also free to exit the rooms at any time during the game. Speak to any member of our team if you have any concerns.

Are your escape rooms hard?

Each of our rooms is designed to be a challenge, but they are not unbeatable! Every room is solvable if you work as a team. We recommend that players who are new to escape games do not play the most difficult rated games until they are familiar with the concept.

How does the game end?

Either you are successful and you achieve the game objective or you run out of time and the game is over.

Are you wheelchair accessible?

We are delighted to advise that we can accommodate wheelchair users. There are ramps available to enter the building, so please ensure you let us know of your needs, and there are permanent ramps placed at all fire escapes.

"This was one of the best escape rooms I've done - great puzzles, a fun theme and a very sensible clue system. We'll definitely be coming back to try the other rooms!"
