Let's Go Out is your one-stop solution for sourcing exciting days out and activities throughout the UK. We've been fascinated to note the growing popularity of escape rooms over the past few years as they are becoming one of the top activities of choice for participants of all ages.

What are escape rooms?

Escape rooms offer teams of players a type of adventure game in which they need to solve puzzles or complete activities and tasks in order to escape from an enclosed room or space. The escape room environment may just consist of one room, or could be a set of rooms in a themed environment. Players are given a time limit to make a successful escape from their locked environments.

The typical way escape room experiences are organised is by offering teams a themed environment, which could be based on dungeon, prison cell or space station layouts. All teams are provided with sets of themed puzzles to solve, and given clues, tips or a plan of action they can use to make an escape.

The escape room experience launched around 2010 and has taken off in popularity. You will find escape room experience days in Asia, North America and throughout Europe, very often themed to suit historical events that happened in these locations.

Escape room activities are a popular team building exercise for companies planning unusual activities for groups of workers and are also proving to be a different type of fun activity for families and groups of friends.
