Escape Rooms in Wiltshire
One of the latest crazes to sweep the nation is escape rooms. Here in Wiltshire, we have three of these escape rooms that have opened up and are set to challenge the inquisitive amongst you.
What is an escape room?
An escape room is an adventure game whereby players are locked inside a room for a set amount of time (usually 60 minutes) and have to use elements of the room to solve the puzzles to make their escape. They are often based on concepts from video games and originated initially in Japan before their popularity spread worldwide. Think along the lines of the Crystal Maze and you’ll get the idea.
Where are the escape rooms in Wiltshire?
There are two escape rooms in Salisbury: Salisbury Escape Room and Live Escape Salisbury as well as one in Bromham, near Chippenham called the 11th Hour Escape Room.
Each of the escape rooms has a different theme. Salisbury Escape Room has previously had a Magna Carta theme (read our blog here on our visit), a Murder at the Museum theme and now a new theme ‘Framed! Guilty until proven innocent’.
The 11th Hour Escape Room has a music theme and is ideal for two to six players.
Live Escape Salisbury have a SPECTRE-based theme including special effects and some unique puzzles to test you and your team to the limit.
What type of people can take part in an escape room?
Depending on the escape room in question, they can cater for a variety of groups whether it’s a gathering of friends for a birthday party, a stag or hen do or even a team building event.
Generally speaking they aren’t suitable for young children however older teenagers will enjoy the activities at Salisbury Escape Room as will accompanied children at Live Escape Salisbury and 16s and overs are allowed in the 11th Hour Escape Room.
