Escape Rooms FAQs

We get a lot of queries from visitors about our Escape Room Games, so we’ve compiled a list of the most frequently asked questions, so you’ll be reassured about what to expect when you come here. If you find you still more questions, and you don’t see them answered here, you can always get in touch with us here at Escape Room Lincoln.

What exactly are Escape Room Games?

These are medium sized rooms which have been furnished using a particular theme, usually taken from popular culture. You will be in a team of about 2 to 6 people, and they will be locked in the same room with you. You will all be searching for clues so you can escape the room within 60 minutes. 

Yes, solve the clues within the hourbut it’s fun.

The secret to your release from the room lies in the clues you must find and solve within an hour. You’ll search everywhere in the room. Once you find them all you’ll try working them out to find the bigger picture, then you can all escape the room in time. If you’re successful, the door will open, and you get out. Do you and your team have what it takes to get out in time? If you don’t, you can always come back and try again.

How old do you have to be to take part?

There are no age limits, but if you’re thinking of bringing the under 10s, they may find it a little tough going as it’s designed for adults initially. If you do decide to bring anyone under 16, then please do, but make sure there are adults around and that they are always supervised.

I suffer with claustrophobia, should I still come?

Don’t worry we can leave the doors unlocked or we can even leave the room completely open. The rooms aren’t small, but we’re always trying to work with you, so you feel comfortable while you’re playing. Let us know if you’d like us to do this. Remember, you can leave the room whenever you want.

What’s the maximum amount of people allowed?

From 2 to 6. But, try to keep the numbers to just below 6 if you can, otherwise it could get a bit crowded, and you’ll be bumping into things left right and centre.

How much time do you need before and after you’re inside the room?

We usually suggest about an hour and a half because we’ll need to talk to you about what to expect, and chat to you about health and safety before you enter the room, so you know how to exit safely should there be an emergency.

Sherlock Judgement

Yup, as you will have established there’s some detective work and yes, it’s that most famous detective of all time, Sherlock Holmes. You’ll be looking for clues so you can escape the room, but they’re are all tied up in a story. You and your team are a group of detectives looking into the case of the Courthouse and then trying to expose Moriarty’s dastardly plan. Let’s face it there’s always a dastardly plan when it comes to Moriarty, am I right?

Next, we have Overthrone where there’s a throne to win and someone has to raise the Sword of Britain to get first prize. The sword has been hidden – of course! You and your team will explore the castle and find the sword before the pretenders to the throne arrive to take it from you.

Prison is our third Escape Room where you and your team have been locked up in jail and are guarded by someone who won’t let you leave – after all he’s been paid to keep you in there. You need to break out – so you’ll need to have your wits about you as you look for the key so you can disarm the security system.

The Magic Emporium holds all the supplies a wizard will ever need, but the shop holds its own secrets, the shop is closed now, there are missing people, and of course, a mystery to investigate in the world of magic.

And now we welcome another room where Sherlock is involved. This time it’s Sherlock: The Initiation and you and your trusty band of friends are detectives from Scotland Yard to help Holmes in his hour of need. But no one is there, no one is answering the door and there are clues to find and riddles to unravel.

Finally, we have Contagion where there’s a virus and you have it. You’ll need to get a vaccine before your number’s up from a medical facility and then after you’ve done that, you’ll need to get out of the laboratory – you have 60 minutes. Of course, it won’t be easy – but are you up for the challenge?

So, there we have it. Six rooms, six challenges and loads of clues. Which one will you choose? Welcome to Escape Games Lincoln! When you’ve chosen which one you’d like to spend an hour of your time in, book online or over the phone. We’ll get things ready here and hope to see you soon…...get ready for the challenge of your life!
