What do you need to bring for your escape room game?

An open mind, a smattering of logic and some focused determination to solve clues and riddles to beat the clock and win the games. Our escape rooms can take teams of 2-40 people so there’s safety in numbers if you come along as a team. In fact, escape rooms are now a top choice for corporate teambuilding, enough said!

After your escape room experience has finished

Once you’ve completed your escape room game, head to our large inviting café for fresh stonebaked pizza and drinks. Alternatively, as Escape if you Dare is slap bang in the centre of Bishops Stortford, you can twin with lunch or dinner at Nandos right opposite or head elsewhere for a meal in town.

That’s the niceties dealt with. But the question still remains… Dare you try it???
