Can children play an escape game as well?

We have already received several groups of children. Based on these experiences, we would like to give the following advice:

- Children under 12 years old can play in a group where the majority is an adult.

- Children between 12 and 14 are preferably accompanied by at least one adult.

- Children over 14 years old can play the game perfectly without adults.

We monitor the game remotely and we can assist the children with tips and hints when necessary.


Are the rooms frightening?

No, none of the rooms is scary. We do, however, guarantee a lot of tension. Moreover, the rooms are big enough so you do not have to fear claustrophobic reactions. You can leave the room at any time, if needed.


Is a good physical fitness important?

No, the game is suitable for everyone. Physical efforts are not required.

Yes, you certainly can. You book the ordinary way and pay the normal price. Bring your voucher with you the day of the escape game, and we will pay you the value of the voucher.
