We are Located just outside of West Quay shopping centre on Portland Terrace. We are directly underneath the large glass footbridge. For more detailed instructions on reaching us please click here
Am I really locked in a room?
You may leave the room at any time you wish through an unlocked door. Your personal game controller is monitoring your entire experience so it is perfectly safe.
How many people can be in a room?
We like to make sure everyone has a great time and that of course includes safety therefore we limit our rooms to a maximum of 6 players. Have more than 6 players? Play head to head! It’s much more fun and what we specialise in!
Do you have meeting rooms?
Unfortunately, we don’t on site, however we have some great contacts our office can advise you on before or after you visit us within seconds of our venue.
Do you have parking?
Due to our central location we have ample parking around us. Our closest car park is Portland Terrace NCP Car Park (1 minute walk) at £5 for up to 2 hours or £10 for up to 24 hours. West Quay also offers multiple other car parks and information about them can be found here:
We are priced at £20 per player with discounts available for teams of 18 or more. We also offer a 10% student discount (ID required) and a 10% discount for NHS, Armed Forces and Emergency Services employees (ID required).
Do you have any wheelchair access/chairs in the rooms?
With the exclusion of Timelock whereby a portion of our game isn't fully accessible, the rest of our Southampton venue is. Each of our rooms also has ample seating as well as our briefing rooms. For any specific information or further clarification please don't hesitate to pop us a call!
Can I make a booking and pay on the day?
Unfortunately, we are not able to book rooms out without some form of payment, however if you call our lovely sales office on 020 7476 5571 you can secure your event by leaving a deposit and pay the rest at the venue on the day. As we are a live event we STRONGLY recommend booking in advance to avoid disappointment. On the day availability is available by calling our sales office on 020 7476 5571 however we can’t always promise a room will be available.
Can we eat/have drinks before or after the game in the venue?
As we are a live event and adhere to a strict schedule, unfortunately not. However, we are surrounded by great restaurants and bars within seconds of our venue!
Do you have to run?
No running is required however we’re not going to stop you!
I’m Pregnant! Can I still play?
Yes, of course. There are no physical challenges in any of our games and we have provided seating in all of the rooms should anyone need to take a break. It’s also worth noting that you are not actually locked inside of a room, you are free to leave at any point during the game through an unlocked door.
Do I have to be in the room with my kids (14 or younger) or can I just be in the building?
We probably shouldn’t be trusted with The Professor’s precision equipment, and we definitely should not be left in charge of young, impressionable scientists! We will need you to have 1 responsible adult (18+) for each room if there will be Escapees aged 14 and under.
Can I bring my baby?
Of course, as long as you remember to take them with you after.
What can I wear?
There is nothing specifically needed except yourselves. Teams can play in wedding dresses to suits, fancy dress to casual…as long as you’re wearing something, we’re happy.
