What is the minimum/maximum team size for each game room?

Ideally teams of 2 to 6 people. If your group is larger than the game maximum, we recomend booking more than one room, you can even play multiple games head to head and race for the best time.

Is there an age restriction?

We have no upper limit however the games are designed for adults so children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult. The games work well for younger children when playing as part of a group with adults or older children however we would not suggest bringing a group of children under 12 as the puzzles are challenging and it is unlikely they will be able to complete the game.

I am claustrophobic, can I play?

We always leave the entry doors unlocked for fire risk purposes and the rooms are quite large, the smallest being the size of an average bedroom.

Can I cancel my booking or reschedule a new session?

Once booked we can’t offer a refund, however if you contact us 48 hours prior to your time slot we are happy to reschedule the game for another date.
