Escape Room FAQs

When you visit Escape Dublin we want you to enjoy yourself, whoever it is you bring, whether it’s friends, fellow students or your team mates from work. So, we’ve come up with some popular questions and provided answers, so you’ll feel as prepared as you’re going to be once you come on down and visit us. 

What is the Escape game phenomena?

Escape games are team-based games where you are locked in a room with around 2 to 5 people ideally. Once you’re locked in you’ll have to find some clues and solve them as part of a series of challenges and once you solve them all you can get out, that’s once you’ve obtained the key to the door. 

Why this type of game?

This type of game is gaining in popularity because it’s different, it’s fun and it’s perfect as an ice breaker, a way to bond friends, students corporate team members who are in need of a day out to get to know each other. Escape games are ideally designed to celebrate big events too, such as hen and stag dos, anniversaries and birthdays. They’re such a great way for friends and family to catch up with each other and simply enjoy some quality time together. 

Are there age restrictions?

No there aren’t really. However, we would suggest that the puzzles and clues we use here may be a little too demanding for those under the age of 10. If there are children under the age of 16, we would suggest they’re accompanied by an adult. 

I suffer with claustrophobia so should I still come?

The rooms are a lot bigger than you’d imagine, but if you’re worried about it then we can always leave them unlocked, you’ll still have a fantastic time. 

What is the maximum/minimum team size?

We suggest that in order to enjoy the game more, that there are around two members at a minimum, and 6 as a maximum total, so you’re not on top of each other. 

How much time is needed?

Obviously, there’s an hour when you’re in the room, but we’ll have to brief you first before you go on, so we’d advise that you allow for an hour and a half. That way we have time to brief you and then you’ll have your allotted time of 60 minutes in the room.
