FAQs

What is an escape room? 

An escape room is a real-life adventure game in which players are locked in a room filled with puzzles. In order to leave the room, participants must solve the puzzles within a given period of time. Escape from home works in the same way except that you will need to escape your home not on particular room. Our Egyptian Enigma game and Blackbeard's Last Battle works in a slightly different way as players must break in, in order to obtain the treasure. 

 

How much does a game cost? 

Price for our physical games start at £60 no matter the number of people involved. This is over 30% cheaper than the cost of visiting a local Escape Room!*

Our online adventures are FREE to play and our print and play games start from as little as £7.

 

*based on the average cost of 6 people visiting an Escape Room in Leicester, Derby or Nottingham. 

How long do I have to escape the room?

You have 60 minutes to solve the puzzles and escape your home. We will require time before your event to set up your game. Usually we find the whole experience can last up to 2 hours. 

 

How many people can participate in a single game? 

You can have as many or as few as you are comfortable with in your own home. We find a maximum of 10 players works best. If you require more people, the Egyptian Enigma and Blackbeard's Last Battle can be reset very quickly allowing for multiple games. You could even play both of them on the same day. 

I'm worried about where in our house you will use. 

Missing is the only game that requires us to use more than one area of your house. We liaise with you the entire way and only use areas of your house you are comfortable with. Our game is designed to be flexible and use any space.

The Egyptian Enigma and Blackbeard's Last Battle requires enough space to fit a shipping crate or treasure chest. The box, although large will fit through a standard front door. Both games can also be played outside as long as the weather allows. 

What happens if I don’t solve the puzzle within the given time? 

If you don’t solve the puzzle, you’ll still be released from your house after 60 minutes. 

Both the online and print and play games have no time limit. You can take as long as you like to complete these.

Do I need to book in advance?

You must book in advance for any of our physical games. Our online and print and play games do not need to be pre booked.  

 

You can contact us via our contact form or live chat feature. You can also email us at hello@escapefromhome.co.uk or phone 07557877987.

 

How big does our house need to be?

We can work with any space you have, from a one bedroom flat to a 20 bedroom mansion. The more space you have means the more expansive the experience but we can work with you to tailor the experience to make it the best possible. 

The Egyptian Enigma and Blackbeard's Last Battle only require one room to play. 

How far do you travel?

For our physical games, we travel across the UK. We are based in Leicestershire and the cost of a game will determine your distance from our base. If you'd like to know more, please get in contact.

What about your online and print and play games?

Online adventures can be played by multiple people across several locations. Multiple devices can access the game at the same time. You could even compete against each other to escape first! 

Our print and play games are versatile enough to play as a pair but also as a whole group. You could always print more than one copy and play a versus game to see who escape first.

Our online adventures require a laptop, PC, tablet or Mobile and our print and play games can work in one location or over a series of spaces.
