How are you dealing with Coronavirus?

We have alcoholic hand sanitiser in our reception, and we wipe down all locks, handles and regularly interacted with surface areas after every game.

What are you, Alternate Escapes?

We're a provider of great times. Life is really quite serious, and so we're dedicated to injecting fun and humour into your lives, through the medium of escape room type experiences. You'll solve puzzles and take on unique challenges in a team, to achieve some kind of in no way over dramatic objective.

What's an escape room?

Escape rooms are live action games where you and a bunch of others work together to solve puzzles, discover clues and accomplish tasks to achieve a specific goal, within a limited time frame. This might be escaping the room, but it can also be a completely different objective. 

What's the Battle of Brexit?

Our first escape room! Pick a campaign side and win the EU referendum in this parody heavy experience. You must break into the other teams war room, leak as much evidence as you can and swing the vote in your favour!

No political knowledge is required to play this - its a fun escape room, Brexit or no Brexit! And if you can't decide what side to pick, just pick "Surprise Us" at booking and we'll pick for you!

Is it fun?

Like, so much fun.

Who are you suitable for?

If you're a great bunch of 2-6 people that are ages 16 and over, you're spot on to play one of our escape rooms. It's particulaly suitable for...

BIRTHDAY CELEBRATIONS
RAINY DAY ACTIVITY
CRACKING GROUP OF FRIENDS
AVERAGE GROUP OF FRIENDS
A TOP TEAM OF CO-WORKERS

 

Are you wheelchair accessible?

Yes!

 

However some puzzles may need some adaptation, which means we need to allow more preparation time. Therefore rather than going through the booking page please contact us to make your booking by emailing us at hello@alternate-escapes.co.uk.
