What is Escapism?

Escapism is a live escape room experience. You will be locked in a room for 60 minutes and challenged to hunt clues & solve puzzles to make your escape.

Each room is designed around a different story or experience. We want to creatively challenge your brain and spark your imagination!

Who can play?

Live escape rooms appeal to all. Teams can be made of friends, family, work colleagues etc. A fantastic form of team building for a corporate event or a great warm up for a birthday/stag/hen party.

Is the experience difficult?

If you enjoy puzzles, problem solving, and working as a team, Escapism puts all of those skills to the test in our fun themed rooms.

How many rooms do you have?

Currently, we have five rooms providing different Escapism experiences. Whether you want to escape from the Romans, free some hostages, break out of Area 51 or find a group that went missing in the woods, our rooms will cater to your needs - find out more about our rooms.

How often do you update the rooms?

We plan to update our rooms every 12 - 14 months.

Is it safe?

Yes, absolutely. All of our rooms are monitored by our staff and have been designed to be a fun, challenging experience. If, for whatever reason, you want to leave the room, you can at anytime.

Are there age limits?

We would recommend that younger players are at least 10 years old to get the best Escapism experience and that players under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.

How many people can play each room?

Taken and Espionage are designed for a maximum of 5 people and a minimum of 2.

Area 51, Amphitheatre and The Missing are designed for a maximum of 6 people and a minimum of 2.

When are you open?

We’re open 10am - 10pm 7 days a week. We are only closed on Christmas Day and New Year’s Day.

Do you have wheelchair access?

We can confirm that our venue does have wheelchair access. Very few aspects of the game require physical movements but we do advise that at least one member of the teams does not have mobility problems. Sadly, our Espionage, Amphitheatre and The Missing rooms are not wheelchair accessible. Bookings for our other rooms would require a minimum of 1 able bodied person.

No clues require the ability to hear but a sound will be made on occasions to alert people to clues so it is advisable to have one member of the team who can hear. The majority of clues and puzzles are visual ones.

What if someone is claustrophobic?

Our rooms our fairly spacious, players are monitored on CCTV for any issues and there is an emergency key located in each room so players can leave at any time if they wish to do so.

Is there car parking available?

Parking is available directly below our unit and is free after 3pm. The car park is accessed via Delamere Street, once parked take the George Street exit and make your way to the ground floor via the lift/stairs. Exit the building and turn left and you’re at Escapism Chester.

I’ve paid with an E-Cheque, what happens now?

E-Cheques take 10-14 days to clear, the booking is only accepted once this payment has cleared, so if paying via E-Cheque you will have to make sure your booking is far enough in advance to clear.
