THE 10 MOST FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS FROM ALL INTERESTED IN ESCAPE GAMES

We have collected the most frequently asked questions that interested people and customers asked our Escape Game providers, and we would like to share our answers on this page.

1. WHAT IS AN ESCAPE GAME?

Escape Game is a logical group game in which participants must solve various puzzles and tasks together within 60 minutes to escape the room. Each room has its own story and mission (for example, finding a criminal, finding out a mysterious secret, etc.).

2. HOW TO PLAY?

Before the start of the game, each group gets an introduction where the story of the room and some rules are explained. As soon as the group enters the room and the door closes, it starts. In one or more rooms, there are various objects, which contain all possible hints and keys. If the group with the game task is stuck, they can ask the moderator for help.

3. HOW MANY PEOPLE CAN PARTICIPATE AT THE SAME TIME?

Normally, between 2 to 6 participants can play simultaneously in a puzzle room. With more than six people in the group, teamwork can be harder or the space becomes too tight. Therefore, it is recommended that you divide into the smaller groups and book parallel puzzle rooms.

4. ARE WE ACTUALLY OBSERVED DURING THE GAME?

The door is actually closed during the game, but not locked up for security reasons. Players can leave the room at any time. All providers also inform their customers that they can leave the door open if necessary.

5. IN WHAT LANGUAGES CAN YOU PLAY?

The games in most of the escape rooms in Austria are available in English and German.

6. MAY THE CHILDREN PLAY AS WELL?

For most escape rooms, the children are only allowed to play independently from the age of 14. Children under 14 years can play together with adults. There are also escape rooms specially designed and adapted for children. For safety reasons, however, an adult person must accompany the children's game anyway.

7. HOW TO BOOK AND PAY FOR AN ESCAPE ROOM ON ESCAPELIST.COM?

You choose the room through our search function, choose the right date and time and then pay with a credit card, PayPal or immediate transfer.

8. HOW CAN I CANCEL OR POSTPONE THE BOOKED GAME?

For some escape rooms, you can cancel the booked room for free 24-48 hours before the appointment. For others, only a rebooking is possible.

9. DO I HAVE TO BRING ANY EQUIPMENT OR HAVE ANY SPECIFIC ABILITIES TO PARTICIPATE IN AN ESCAPE GAME?

You do not have to bring anything or get dressed. For some games, comfortable clothing is an advantage. Mathematical skills are not required of you either. It is rather about logically solving the tasks.

10. ARE ALL ESCAPE ROOMS SCARY?

Horror quests enjoy massive popularity everywhere. However, not all rooms have a creepy plot or design. When searching for a room, you are welcome to enter the genre in the filter so you can find the games of the right kind faster.
