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 or find a group that went missing in the woods, our rooms will cater to your needs - find out more about our rooms.

When are you open?

We’re open 10am - 10pm 7 days a week. We are only closed on Christmas Day and have limited opening times over the Christmas period.

Accessibility and special requirements

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 team 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.

Some clues may require the ability to hear. If there are any members who may be hard of hearing, please inform us prior to your arrival so we can cater for this. A sound will be made on occasions to alert people to clues, so it is advisable to have at least one member of the group who can hear. However, our Amphitheatre room would require at least two members 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 location in a public car park. 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 life/stairs. Exit the building, turn left and you’re at Escapism Chester. Tariffs vary depending on time of arrival and length of stay.

The entrance to the car park closes at 9pm, however you can drive out after this time.
