How does an escape game work?

Generally speaking, it is easier played than explained - as soon as the door closes behind you, you'll realize that in the next hour teamwork and cleverness are the only skills that will make your mission a success. But don't panic: you will not be locked up in the room. And if necessary, our trained game masters will be there for you to help you with a well-timed clue. Thanks to those inconspicuous-looking cameras in our escape rooms, we always know whether you need a hand.

What makes an escape room so unique?

variable team size

Just meeting a few friends, or organizing a big family event? At Spybrain we're absolutely flexible: play in teams of 3 to 7 persons – depending on the escape room you chose you can even have your adventure with 8 players (magical music machine room only).

60-80 minutes of playing time - for even more fun

Regular exit games typically last a maximum of 60 minutes. But we want you to have more game and more fun, and that's why we are giving you 20 extra minutes – without being more expensive.
