What is an escape room?

An escape room is the venue of a so-called escape game, during which a team has been locked up in a thematic experience room. Through solving puzzles and riddles, the team has to find its way out of the room within the time given.

Number of persons

The minimum or maximum number of participants depends on which game you book. To obtain this information, please click on the game of your interest.
Are you with more people? Then we suggest that you split the group into two teams, so that you can play in turns.
Are you with 2 people? Soon, a new game is going to be launched in which pairs are challenged. Please be patient a little while more!

I am pregnant!

No worries future mom! Our games are not scary or physically challenging. Moreover, your teammates can carry out any possible physical activities.

I am claustrophobic

During the game, the door is never locked, so you can leave the room at any time, if necessary. In addition, the team is given a phone to be able to stay in immediate contact with the game coach.


The minimum age is 16 years. As from the age of 12, the games can be played under the guidance of an adult.


Our games are in Dutch, English or French.

Wheelchair accessibility

Unfortunately, we have not (yet) adapted our building for the benefit of wheelchair users. In the future, we hope to make the proper adjustments so that wheelchair users can also participate in our games.
