Have you ever heard of escape rooms? They are the new favourite recreational activity to have fun and escape from the world for a bit. It’s a great way to spend time with family, friends, co-workers…

The idea of an escape room is based on “locking-up” a group of people in a room where they have to get out before the time is up. Usually, the time limit is 1 hour. The entire team works towards the same goal: solving riddles and finding clues to find the way out of the game room.

They are an excellent activity for companies, as they encourage creativity and teamwork, help to locate problems and solve them. In short, they are a great way for colleagues to bond.

There are rooms for everyone: some are easier and some are more difficult, scary, mysterious, themed, with unexpected surprises…


This escape room combines classic and modern riddles with different special effects. It is the perfect place to create a memorable experience. Depending on the game, up to 20 people can play.

They have 5 escape rooms between the two locals: The Captain, Doc’s Time Machine, The Terminal, Gordon’s Secret, The Tower of Babel.
