FAQ’s

What is Escape Room Scarborough?

Escape Room Scarborough is a live escape-room experience. Participants are “locked” in a room, and have a limited time to solve a series of puzzles, riddles and clues to enable them to successfully complete their chosen adventure and ‘escape’ the room – and therefore win the game.

What makes Escape Room Scarborough so special?

We are the only escape room experience on this part of the beautiful North Yorkshire Coast – Scarborough is one of the most visited locations in the whole of the UK.

Mr E Rooms’ Escape Room Scarborough is located in a beautiful historic building in the very heart of the town, within easy walking distance of restaurants, bars and other amenities. In fact, we are next door to the Courtyard bar, and two doors away from a Brewers’ Fayre restaurant and pub.

We have invested a huge amount of time and energy to source authentic props and furniture to make sure that the rooms provide a stunning and unforgettable experience – we like to think of ourselves as the ‘world’s smallest theme park’! So, whether you win or lose you will have a simply brilliant time. Many of games include original theme music specially composed for us by an award-winning composer who has worked in theatre and film for over thirty years.

When you first arrive you will be greeted at our box-office to collect your tickets for your performance. Once you have your tickets you can choose from our range of refreshments before heading down into the “Flogsmead” wizard’s tavern where you will receive your pre-game briefings. You will then be directed to your “theatre” game room to begin your adventure…

Where Can We Park?

There are a number of multi-story car parks within easy walking distance. The NCP multi-story car park on North Street, the Brunswick Centre car park on York Place and the Palm Court car park on Falconer’s Road are all less than 10 minutes away. There is also some (limited) on-street car parking nearby.

What are the prices?

Prices are based on an initial room hire of £30, Each person is then charged at just £10 each. This means that the more people there are in your group, the cheaper per person it is!

2 Person game £50 = £25pp
3 Person game £60 = £20pp
4 Person game £70 = £17.50pp
5 Person game £80 = £16pp
6 Person game £90 = £15pp
7 Person game £100 = £14.30pp
8 Person game £110 = £13.75pp

How ‘Scary’ are the rooms?

We do not consider the games to be scary. However, younger children or people of a sensitive disposition may find some of the games to be outside their comfort zone – this is particularly the case with Terminating Here. If you have any doubts or concerns please contact us before booking.

Do I need to be ‘clever’?

The puzzles and riddles in the rooms are designed to be challenging and thought-provoking. However, you do not need any specific skills or knowledge to be successful – communication, team working and creative thinking are more important than being ‘clever’. And if you get stuck, your gamesmaster will be able to provide a clue to get you back on track.

Can people with disabilities play?

We will do everything we can to accommodate people with disabilities. Please contact us in advance to discuss any individual needs you or your team members may have. However, please note that we are in a listed building (built in the 1700s) and therefore there is very limited wheelchair accessibility. Access to all games involves climbing at least one set of stairs, which unfortunately may limit their availability to some people with mobility-restricting disabilities.

Are we really locked in?

No – you are never physically locked in a room. You may leave at any time (eg for a comfort break) but the game clock will continue during your absence.

How many can play?

All rooms are suitable for 6 players but many games offer capacity for up to 8 or even 10 players. Check the games for their capacity and availability. For special arrangements or larger groups that require multiple games booked at the same start time contact us on 01723 372147

Are there any Age Restrictions?

We recommend that groups of under 16s should have at least one adult in their team. This is to ensure that there is someone there to help with certain puzzles and to prevent them from getting stuck too often. However, we are constantly amazed at how it is often the youngest member of the team who will suddenly find the all-important clue. Again, if you need any guidance on age-suitability, please do not hesitate to contact us on 01723 372147.

 

When are you open?

We are open 7 days a week with games starting as early as 10:30am (excluding Christmas day and New Years day) check our Book Now section for start times or call us on 01723 372147

Whichever experience you choose, you and your friends will have a maximum of sixty minutes to complete your task.
