What is an Escape Room?

Escape rooms are one of the most popular experiences right now. In fact, they’re a craze that are taking over the world, after originating in Japan in 2007. The idea is simple; you and your group will be shut in a themed room where you’ll be given a set time to find clues and solve puzzles and riddles. If you do this before the time runs out, you win. If not, you lose. Escape rooms in Oxford provide a fun challenge for any kind of group and any kind of occasion.

A great thing about escape rooms is that everyone’s mind works slightly differently so you’re likely to have a different experience depending on who you are. You might solve the puzzles in a quirky way or find the clues in an alternative order. As long as you get out in time, work as a team and enjoy yourselves, it doesn’t matter!

Birthday, Stag or Hen Do Escape Rooms in Oxford

Escape Rooms in Oxford

Escape rooms are great fun for any occasion. Why not give one a try for a stag or hen do in Oxford? It’s a great way to get your adrenaline pumping for a bit before you explore everything else that this party town has to offer. It’s also a great ice breaker if you’re with a group who don’t know each other that well. Alternatively, if you’re celebrating an Oxford birthday party, this is always a good choice for all ages. Check out individual listings for age restrictions as themes can become quite adult, in case you’re looking for something for your child and want to avoid that.

Oxford Escape Rooms

We all know that Oxford is a super brainy city so where better to do a mind-boggling activity? You’ll be giving your grey matter a good workout but don’t worry, you don’t have to be a genius to do an escape game in Oxford, just use common sense and try to channel your inner Sherlock Holmes. One thing that’s guaranteed to help you succeed is teamwork. We all have different strengths so what might seem really confusing to you might seem simple to someone else. You can expect the riddles and puzzles to challenge you so putting your heads together to solve them is your best bet when it comes to getting out in time. Most escape rooms give you around one hour to solve everything and get out, so you better think fast!

The Perfect Rainy Day Activity

Let’s face it, the UK isn’t always the most reliable when it comes to the weather! If you’re looking for activities for a rainy day, Oxford escape games are always a fun option. Because they take place inside, you’ll stay totally dry as you complete the challenges with your group. This has to be one of the most fun ways to shelter from the rain!

  • Is the door really locked in an escape room?

    No. The door will be shut but you won't be locked in. Your group will be shut in the room for a designated period of time where you’ll have to solve puzzles in order to beat the escape room and get out.

  • What if we can't get out?

    Don’t worry, we won’t leave you stuck in there! We’re not mean! You will, of course, be let out once your time is up, even if you haven’t completed the escape game.

  • Are escape rooms claustrophobic?

    This varies from venue to venue. Ask when you place your enquiry and the activity provider will do everything they can to make this experience as comfortable (and fun!) as possible.

  • Can we use our mobile phones during an escape game?

    No! No cheating allowed. That spoils the fun. Work as a team and put your detective caps on and you’ll do fine.
