OUR GAME ROOMS

FAQ'S

Due to their complexity, we recommend our games to players aged 13+. However, younger players always enjoy them anyway, so it’s up to them if it sounds like fun. Please note that all players aged 12 and under* must be accompanied by an 18+ player.

We’re on St. Mary Street – Just up toward the Castle from the Cardiff Market. There’s a map at the bottom of this page!

Not really – the games in their nature are thrilling, but there’s nothing scary to worry about!

Although our basement games, ‘Z – The Zombie Apocalypse’ and ‘Oculus The Serial Killer’, are horror-themed, they are not horror experiences. We aim for excellent design, immersion and gameplay, not a high scare factor!

Once a game has been booked, it cannot be moved or cancelled.

All of our games are non-refundable and non-transferable.

We offer a 100%, any reason refund guarantee if you purchase the option at check out.

You can get hints from the Game Masters who supervise your game via the cameras and microphones in the room. They will send you help at the appropriate time if you really are struggling!

Be punctual. Please arrive 10 minutes before the start of your game. This will allow time for your brief, lockers & toilets etc. We will, of course, do our best to accommodate you, but we can’t promise that you won’t miss your game if you’re late!

Unfortunately not, all our games are on floors 1, 2 or basement.

Our rooms are designed for 2-6 players. The more of you there are, the easier and cheaper it is per person. The rooms are for your private game only and not shared with anyone else in your party.

Absolutely. Large groups often come and play our games. Our 6 available game rooms hold 2-6 players, so we can accommodate up to 36 players per hour session. For groups larger than that, please give us a call at 029 2167 9700. Also, we have an amazing FOOD & DRINK discount! Every booking with us gives you 15% off the bill at Pizza Express around the corner – most of our large bookings make the most of that!

 Yes, you can! The rooms are all of a reasonable size and you will not find yourself in an enclosed space. You can leave the room at any point if you so wish. None of our games is overly physical, there is no climbing involved, and we have had many pregnant people playing our games.

Likewise, we quite often get players with claustrophobia and we are surprised at how little of an issue it is to them

One of the things that have made Escape Rooms successful around the world is that they can be enjoyed by everyone for every occasion. From babies to grandparents, friends and families always come to us to take on the adventure. We also see gamers, couples and school trips coming by the busload, all enthusiastic about their 1-hour game. Some people celebrate, while others book corporate team buildings for all of their colleagues.

 

Talking about celebration, we have had 4 proposals here!!!

 

And OH, don’t forget! We are dog friendly, so bring the pup along!
