Our Rules

You have 60 minutes to escape.

Do not touch any red plugs, locks or objects with red tape on them.

Do not force, push, or bang on any furniture, walls or props. If a drawer doesn’t open, it’s because you need to find another way to open it, or perhaps it was never supposed to open.

No lock picking, this defeats the purpose of solving the clues to get out.

No cell phones or electronics allowed in the room.

There is nothing hidden behind or under any furniture, nothing overhead, nor under the floor, so you don’t need to climb any furniture or open any floor hatches.

Children under 16 years of age must be accompanied by an adult.

Please be aware that The Gr8 Escape may utilise strobe lights, flashing lights, and/or smoke machines. Please advise ahead of time if this will cause a health issue so as to make adjustments to the room.

The Gr8 Escape reserves the right to refuse play from any patron who is under the influence of alcohol, or any person whose demeanour or actions are deemed to pose a threat to the safety of themselves, other participants, or the room itself. In such cases there will be no refund nor other compensation.

Our FAQ’s

What are your trading hours?

We are open Tuesday to Sunday: 10:00 – 18:00

How much does it cost?

Sessions are R250.00 per person per session.

Do you have to book?

Yes, all games require a booking 24 hours in advance. Should you wish to play on the same day, please call us to confirm availability.

Am I really locked in the room?

For your own safety, we leave the room to the door unlocked, the scenario may give the illusion that you are locked in, but you can leave any time in an emergency. However, should you leave the room, your game is forfeited.

How does it work?

When your countdown begins, you and your group begin searching the room to find and work on any puzzles. The puzzles require only the use of brain power, there is no need to move any furniture or force any objects/puzzles in the room. As you solve puzzles, you uncover more puzzles/riddles that move you closer to your final goal and to escape the room.

Will I be in the room with strangers?

No, each booking is private

How many people can play at a time?

Our rooms work best with between 2 and 6 people. Some puzzles are extremely difficult and even impossible with less than 2 players. With more than 6 people, the room can get very crowded and harder to finish.

Do I compete with my group?

Each group playing an escape room must work together to solve the puzzle and get out as soon as possible.

What if I want to compete with my friends?

There are 2 ways to make the games a bit more competitive. We recommend getting 2 or more groups of 4 – 5 people, and playing a different room at the same time to compete against each other and see who can get out first.

 

Alternatively, you can book two sessions in a row, one group can grab a lunch at one of the nearby restaurants and have a drink or bite to eat, while the other group plays an escape room. When the first group has finished the escape room, they can meet at the restaurant and the second group can come play the same room and then compare times.
